My husband is seriously addicted to this:
The problem is; they don’t sell the bottles in the grocery stores by the case. I’ve tried all of them including Wal-Mart, Costco, and Sam’s club. They only sell the cans and he won’t drink out of a can. He goes to the convenient store and buys four of these every day for $1.79 each every day. I was in the dollar store the other day and they had a bunch of these. I grabbed 2 flats of them. There are 24 to each flat so I had 48 bottles. Remember that, it’s important….48 bottles.
I brought them to the check out and here's what transpired:
I put one bottle on the conveyor belt and told her that I had 2 cases. She scanned the bottle 24 times. (No, she didn’t hit the x24 button, she scanned it 24 times.) I said nothing and smiled sweetly even though I was in a hurry because I had to pee.
Clerk: That will be $25.68.
Me: I have two cases.
Me: There are 24 in each case.
Clerk: Ok, that’s $25.68.
Me: No, there are 48 bottles at $1.00 each.
Clerk: But there’s tax on it so it comes to $25.68
Me: (I kept looking at her expression thinking, wait for it….wait for it…..then ….nothing.) Um, I owe you more than that.
Clerk: I don’t think so; the register automatically figures the tax.
Line behind me is backing up down the aisle. I look around for a manager, can’t see anyone.
Me: I’m sorry, but I think I’ll just take one case.
Clerk: (huffing and puffing she clears the register and then runs the same bottle over the scanner 24 times.) That will be $25.68.
Me: Really, huh?
I’ve got to go back tomorrow to pick up that other case.
