does anybody else wonder why ordinary things are difficult today

 

I bought 3 items at Costco, it was limit 2, oooops. So the third was not $5 off. No problem, I'll just return the one that was over the limit.

The person at the courtesy desk kept telling me, the computer shows there is a $5 coupon, that's why your refund has $5 deducted.

I tried to explain, I bought 3 items, the limit was 2, so I want to return the one that was over the limit. She simply told me the same thing.

Her coworker asked what's going on? She explained. Coworker then reiterated what I had said, that the refund should be the full amount. "Does that make sense now? No? It doesn't?"

In a perfect world, they just say no worries we'll give you $5 off (because if you want you can get back in line and buy a third, or order online in which case they have to pay for UPS/free shipping).

Costco sux mightily

you have to return all, rebuy two

Sad is when the person's badge says they've been there since 1997.

You're right about rebuying, the problem is the lines are so long with all of us buying unneeded things on impulse (their business model)...

Ooops

Not trying to offend anyone, but the sales people don't have to be rocket scientists to work there.

But I think they should be able to handle transactions. In reality, I can't let the $5 go. I'm sure some people see it on their receipt and just say ah darn I paid $5 more than I thought, no biggie. Prolly that's why the "limit" is put in place. As mentioned, a person could just get in the long line again and buy 2 more if they wanted.

You could apply the same to banks. I closed out an account, checking and savings, and next month, got hit with a low balance fee because the accounts were never closed. Or another time at another bank, the banker (they all got busted eventually) upped my account to that where someone would have $100,000 or more in business, and I had about $2500. We can say they're not rocket scientists either, just ordinary folks forging documents...lol
