I got my wife a gorgeous Caran d’Ache 849 ballpoint pen...rose gold plated...along with a set of 3.5” x 5.5” Tomoe River note pads and a nice leather cover with pen loop for Mother’s Day.  I felt left out so I looked around and found a Special Edition Swiss 849 red with white Swiss crosses all over it.  Perfect EDC to add to my Swiss Army Knife...a set.  Right?  So Walmart had the best price...$18 including shipping to the local store.  I placed the order.  

They screwed the order up.  Listen...do you hear that “RATCH THUNK - til tin tik tik tik tik. Cha CHING!” in the background.

They didn’t send me the single pen I ordered...they sent me a BOX OF TEN!!!

Price on the ten-er ranges between $200 and $340. Yikes!

Nice score! That happened to me once with coffee cups, ordered two cups and they sent me two cases. It was from a small mom and pop business though so i felt bad and told them of the error. They thanked me for letting them know and asked that i only send back one case and keep the extras.

Yeah...I know.  But stealing from the devil is still stealing.  Sounds pretty self righteous but it’s true. Orrrrr...maybe I’ll just keep ‘em.

I understand what you’re saying blackhorse. But I’ve been screwed over by Walmart enough in the past that on the rare occasion I get over on them. It doesn’t bother me at all.
