I had some running around to do this afternoon and I stopped at Evil Big Box Store(tm)1812 to pick up a few items. After picking up a few items, I went to the register to pay for them. The cashier asked me how I was and I told her that I was fantastic and improving. She rung me up. I paid her and after she gave me my change, I gave her my now customary "thank you for working at Walmart." As I was leaving the store, I realized I was thirsty and went to the pop machine to get a can of Coke Zero. I put a dollar in, made my selection, took my quarter change, and reached down for my product. There were two cans there.
On my way to the WIXYmobile, I was thinking about how I was going to blog about getting this deal from, of all places, the Evil Big Box Store(tm). Then in the back of my mind, I was reading the comments that I would potentially get:"Why didn't you return the other can, WIXY?" "Do you think this was the honest thing to do WIXY?" "Cliff, you are the fault that Walmart's prices are going up!"
I turned around, went back into the store, and gave the extra can to the people greeter, explaining to her that I only paid for one can. She was a bit surprised, but I was satisified that I did the right thing.
The irony of this thing was that I left one bag at the register and had to return to the store after I realized it, which was when I got home. I had to go back, otherwise our cats would be going on strike as this can contained several cans of cat food.
