Okay, so this is not the thing I wanted to write for my first "real" post in awhile, but it's what I'm thinking about right now. I had a great trip to the grocery store tonight, but I have a little problem.
I bought 20 $1 off Chobani Oikos yogurt off of e-bay so that I could get some "free" yogurt at Publix (not free since I paid about $5 for the 20 coupons and I have to pay 0.10 tax on each one, but still, it's cheap organic yogurt). ANYWAY, I headed over there tonight to pick up some yogurt and a few other things that were on sale this week. We also needed eggs. We were down to one, which is never good.
So, I grab the necessary items and proceed to the checkout. First, however, you should know that when reaching to grab some yogurt I knocked one of them to the floor, resulting in a busted yogurt container and yogurt on the floor. (I did, you will be pleased to know, inform a Publix employee. I also apologized for my clumsiness).
Okay, back to the checkout. When I was watching the items ring up, I realized that some of the yogurt was not ringing up for $1. How about, in my rush around the store, I picked up the wrong kind (which, incidentally, was also the kind I knocked onto the floor). BOO! I told the cashier that I didn't mean to get that kind and asked if he could take it off. He did. Then he scanned my coupons, and I paid my $13.70 (saving $23.70, btw). I got in my car, drove home, unloaded the groceries where I found...
the FOUR things of yogurt that I didn't pay for. That's right. He took them off my bill, but they got bagged anyway. Sheesh. Chad laughed and said I should just keep them since it was Publix's mistake. I'm conflicted. I think that their customer service policy will result in me receiving the yogurt for free anyway, but I feel like I'm stealing. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
One thing's for sure: I'm not going back there tonight. I'm tired and it is cold. I didn't want to go to the grocery store tonight anyway, but I decided to make a quick trip so I wouldn't have to go tomorrow. Maybe I should have stayed home.
Anyway, back to my title: what would you do? I'm leaning toward begging my husband to take them back tomorrow while he has Cady. I just really, really don't want to interrupt my work day to deal with this. Okay, leave a comment and let me have it. I know you are all laughing at me. I seriously can't help my ridiculous conscience. One of my preceptors (TAs) in Div. School once told me I have too much guilt to be Baptist. Maybe he was right.
