Im not sure how stores like this remain in business.
(well, I know how, but thats not the point)
I missed my local hardware last night, he closed at 6, I had just left work, and didnt make him.
I wanted to pick up some Kilz for this morning, to block out some stained sections of my stairs, and paint it all white.
After dinner, my wife and I headed for the orange borg.
Its only 1.5 miles from my house, but I wanted to have it when I got up today so I could get going.
When we got to the cashier, I handed her the kilz and the 220 grit sandpaper I had.
She seemed to be having a problem with the scanner, with the kilz, so I asked her, "do you want me to get a different can, maybe the..." but she interrupted me and said, "sir, just be patient, Ill get it!"
She said it in a very condenscending way, snobbish to be accurate.
I looked at my wife, we shrugged it off, lets just get in and out of here.
Im holding a twenty in my hands, knowing the kilz is 14 and change, and the sandpaper is like 3 and change ,I believe. Wasnt sure with tax if a twenty would handle it.
So Im waiting for her to give me the price, she just looks at me, and my wife notices the credit card pad where the price shows, and my wife says,"excuse me, I think theres something wrong."
Now the cashier rolls her eyes, and says, "NO, Nothing is wrong, you will get 11.(whatever change she said) back from the twenty. You have 2 items, do you want me to explain it to you?"
My wife said, "No, thankyou very much, have a nice evening."
I also tried to ask about the change when she handed me 11 and change, since the kilz was almost 15 by itself.(the cashier shook her head, I did not see the receipt, without my glasses, I cant see the credit card pad)
She double rang the sand paper and we tried twice to tell her she was wrong, but she insisted we were just being inpatient.
amazing. simply amazing.
