So I go to buy some tools for the upcoming renovation on our new place. Buy a Milwaukee sawzall, blades, prybar and a 12" compound miter saw. Get home and find out dude did not charge me for the miter saw... even though I saw him scan it etc... so go back to the store and pay for it.

Like when I went through the doors the anti theft thing like beeped... meh.

Yes I know I could have gotten a miter saw for free... but I figure Karma is a bitch... and best go back and pay for it.

Edit I know I will get tooled on for not saying "fuck it" and keeping the saw... again meh.

My Home Depot has self checkout. Definitely one of the greater inventions lately.

I use self-checkout whenever possible, but there isn't one in the tool department.

Yep every time I buy power tools... I do the human checkout thing... as they have to deactivate the Symbol tag thing etc...

And ummm the last three times I got the same guy... and lets say he had ummm issues... like creepy "put the lotion in the basket" shit.

On a side note the manager dude shook my hand... and basically congratulated me for being a ummm non savage...

First of all it is not stealing. You brought the shit to the fucking savage at the check out. The fact that they chose not to charge you is there problem. I would have kept my mouth shut.

I love it when they charge you for a section of pipe with the per foot price.

I vividly recall errors by the cashier that was a huge bonus for my dad.
