So, I am in Toys R Us today buying my kids "treats" for having such a successful garage sale (over $400) and getting rid of so many of their toys... Well, they decided that they wanted the rest of the Super Why Action Figures because Reagan got Princess Presto a few weeks back (with birthday money) on clearance and the rest of the set may not be there much longer. I said that I would buy them each one and they decided to pool their piggy bank monies to buy the last one. (For those of you who do not watch Super Why, we were looking for Wonder Red, Alpha Pig, and Super Why.) Sign was clearanced to 4.98. Cashier rang up 1 at 4.98 and other 2 at 5.98. When I questioned the price, you would have thought that I committed a crime. Her rationale was that the girls were 4.98 and the boys were 5.98. I suggested that we do a price check because they were all on the shelf together (and I wanted my $2, darn it!) After an eye roll, she used her walkie-talkie (renamed walkie-crabby-talkie) to ask for a price check. Guy comes back saying 4.98. She STILL insists that the boys are higher, asking him to check the shelf for another tag. God bless the guy, he still agrees with me, describes the items in great detail, and she huffs, then states, that she "will see if" she can change the price. You are darn-tootin' you can change the price! I was wondering: since when did it become an issue to question a price? Seriously, people. You are getting paid to make me happy, and, quite frankly, I was not trying to rip you off. I was right. So there.
