Grrrr…. I am so angry. I got back from garden centre a couple of hours ago, where I bought some weed killer for the drive. Went through the checkout and paid for the plants etc. I had bought. It seemed expensive so I checked the bill….. the weedkiller which had the price £4.99 on the shelf, had been charged at £12.99 . I’m afraid my ladylike disposition went out of the window as my husband, who is going deaf, couldn’t hear me calling him to come back with the trolley. Startled looks all round from customers in the car park, as I yelled to him at the top of my voice .
I went back in to complain and saw two members of staff, not in uniform but bearing name badges as managers, I attempted to explain to them how angry I was and why, but they just said, "can’t help you now, we have a priority to do with cash to deal with." “Oh”, says I, “aren’t customers your top priority? I guess not”. They dealt with me then . The weedkiller was right at the bottom of a three tier shelving unit, with no other price ticket on there, so it hadn't been muddled up with another brand. I got the weed killer at the reduced price, but I am still so annoyed that they put the wrong price on the shelf. My mother, in her pensioner years, was always being caught out by wrong prices and it infuriates me.
While I was berating the supervisors my husband, said sheepishly… “I’ll just wait outside for you”, he knows the best course of action to take.
On a brighter note, I bought some more lupins and verbena and acquilegia, so I didn’t do too badly .
