This time at Staples. I needed to buy some electronic stuff for work today. Instead of having the actual items on display, they had plastic boxes with a picture of the item in them. I guess so you couldn't steal them. I needed two, so I take two of those boxes up to the checkout. I assumed they would check me out and then hand me the items. The checkout lady looks at the two boxes and is clearly confused. She finally asks me if I want two of the same item and I reply to the affirmative. Then she tells me three times that I didn't need to bring two boxes up there, one would do. Silly me, I thought the boxes represented the number they had in stock. It took all of my willpower to tell her that they ought to have fucking instructions on the boxes for buying two. About the third time she told me, I was getting steamed. I don't need someone telling me how I ought to shop. So she goes to her computer, looks them up, and says that they are out of them. Why would they have the fucking boxes on display in the first place if they were out of them? What a wonderful customer service experience.
