As you can see OP, complaining and pitching a bitch fit WORKS. But you have to understand what your goal is.

If your goal is to get that item at the price you want, sounds like you've already lost that game.

Now the question is, how much work are you going to put into getting revenge? Because you are already over the price-point difference. At this point, getting it 1/2 off is now an act of revenge and emotional satisfaction.

You're getting teased for wanting that, but I make no judgement. I have utmost respect for good retail workers and utter disdain for bad ones. Fuck 'em, get a new job if ya don't like it.

But you need to clear up what YOU want. You're in revenge territory now, and you're doing a bad job at it.

Your effort:their effort ratio should be at least 1:10 That is, if you get on Yelp! or some other bitching site, you should be able to do 10 - 1000x the damage and trouble that they caused you.

They lazily left some shit on the wrong table, now they have to pay. That's the way the Universe works.

If they don't like it, they have the choice to not work/own retail. That's one of the risks of that business.

You really need to up your game. Worker smarter, not harder. And be ready to pull out at the first sign of vagina dentata.

Last time I saw a mis-priced item, I asked a Manager if I was going to get the price marked on one sign or the other. I was willing to pay either, just wanted to know. Manager said thing was mis-priced and gave it to me at a big discount, with a smile. Total interaction time for us both was under 90 seconds. Kinda nice. At that hourly, I was making like $400/hr and the manager fixed a price-change for the half the cost of one item. Win/win.

Try to avoid troubling sincere and hard-working retail workers, and show no mercy to bad ones and bad retail stores, just don't put too much effort into it. You're way upside down.
Inadvertently, EverNoob made a great point. Don't make long, rambling, incoherent posts.

Seriously, you got the state involved? How little bitch of you. How do they know you didn't put the items on the table in order to scam them?

He may have Several of those were just blank including the one I needed. The other proclaimed "buy one get 1/2 off the second" but no actual price.

If there are bar code reading stations in there they are doing a good job hiding them.

Pictures show the number of items, most of which I wasn't buying, many of which I couldn't have moved without a handtruck.

You've falsely listed prices, screwing over a lot of people over the last 17 years. Got it.

What I was looking at was in a 4ft tall 60# box. Didn't really want to drag it anywhere. Still would prefer that the things for sale actually had the price on or near them.
