Here’s another one of those cases that lead me to ask: what would you do?
Home Depot makes a mistake at the checkout and a $199 tool scans for $.01. The sale is completed at $.01 before the store realizes the mistake. By then, the customer says “sorry, the transaction is completed.”
Is it a case of a “deal is a deal”? Or is it more like a clerk that gives you too much change? And what do you do, then?
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
