Yesterday I returned to the Waldorf WalMart. (I know, I know). In Southern Maryland there are two WalMarts, the ghetto Waldorf WalMart one and the so-so one in La Plata. I needed just a few little items. It would be a quick trip. First and foremost, I needed some more Tide.
I didn't have any coupons and sighed when I saw the price for Tide. $13. I always like to buy when it's aound $10, but not that day.
I grabbed a few more items and headed for the check-out aisle. The lady at the register was young and a little cranky. She looked like she wanted to be anywhere but there, but I understood. So did I.
My items were rung up and bagged, and I looked at the amount. $11 and some change.
Well, that was clearly wrong. Should I grab my items and run? Or point out her mistake?
I decided to be honest.
I nodded at the Tide and asked, "Did you ring up the Tide?"
"Yes," she snapped.
Well, clearly no, but who am I to question Ms. Cranky Cannot-Do-Math Pants?
Should I have pressed harder or considered it a benefit of bad service?
