Retail Store Manager Dicks

So,
Was buying some 1/2 off, open box items. They were set on a table clearly marked 1/2 off and were clearly tagged open box along with other open/return items with similar tags. Now, there were other items with a completely different tag, a red tag, on this table as well.

So took several of the same open box items into the register and the cashier said they weren't 1/2 off. I said the table clearly indicated 1/2 off and she called the manager who said the same thing, only the red tags were 1/2 off. I said then all those items need to be removed, me being such a nice guy, and he said no. I said then I'll need to report this to the state if that's what he wants me to do. Unmoving, I said fine, that's what you want.

Other of their stores do the same sale the same way, but 1/2 off everything on those tables, no questions, no dicking around. Took pictures and left.

AG office gets back to me and the company's paralegal suggests maybe someone accidentally put that item on the table and they'd never, every do such a thing. Even offered $15 gift card for accepting this non-apology. Clearly a form letter, didn't bother to read the complaint nor view the photos.

Photos I sent to the AG clearly show many open box items across this table, not just one misplaced by some random customer.

So, while I was OK with a public stoning of the manager before the letter, now I'm pretty sure burning it to the ground is in order.

It just so happens we purchased something else the night before, and then too they wouldn't discount it. Returned it the morning of the 2nd attempt and later that afternoon found it back on the 1/2 off table.

Right? So they intentionally placed these open box items on the 1/2 clearance table.

Clearly wanting to avoid extortion, but I think they need a good fucking with.

Need some ideas, and no sunroof and $300 is too much.

Find out who the district manager is. I worked as a retail manager for a few years in my younger days. DMs very rarely receive direct customer complaints so when they do, they generally act right away. They just want the problem to go away and they last thing they want is that squeaky wheel going any higher up the chain.

It's good to care about some things in life. Mismarked clearance items on the wrong shelf doesn't land in that category for me. I bet if you find the old lady who memorizes the HOA bylaws and walks around the neighborhood with a clipboard, you two can team up and seek to correct these injustices.

I would normally just make some comment to the check out clerk to make myself feel better, then go about my day. Not worth writing the freaking attorney general over it

I'm in this category. I'll keep my dignity, sanity, and a few more brain cells before loosing my cool at some dumb retail store of all places.

Fawk 'em and spend your money elsewhere. That's the best revenge.

Well above that, some corporate law office at this point.

No, but I can see how maybe the title mislead that.

Wrong channel. The legal team only cares about legal issues. When it comes to legal shit anyone cares about, this ranks somewhere well below jaywalking.

No, don't shop at Dicks after the rifle issue. No way to change the title at this point though.

AG seems to care about stores ripping off customer by intentionally mismarking merchandise.

Guess you don't care when you're overchanged.

Let me know when that manager gets perp walked.

At first, I figured this manager must've been a first class dickhead and really rubbed you the wrong way. Now I'm thinking your name must be Karen and this is you:

As is always the case in scenarios like this, it is best to immediately escalate the game to a point they couldn't have even remotely conceived. What you did so far is the shot across the bow, and the next shot needs to be a HE round straight into the magazine to break their back in one blow.

I'm thinking you get a white van, black pants, black shirt, black shoes, black sunglasses, black gloves, black balaclava, black tazer, black Glock, black sidekick, and a black backpack full of ropes, duct tape, mace, ether, rags, chainsaw, sledgehammer, and an ol' cum rag. Then you and your sidekick will drive over to the CEO's house, chainsaw the fucking front door down, mace him, hit him with the ether on the ol' cum rag, then duct tape his hands and feet, put the rope around his neck as a noose, put the ol' cum rag in his mouth (maybe take a small huff of the lingering ether for courage for what comes next), sledgehammer his hands and feet until they're mangled to a bloody pulp of broken bones sticking out, then throw the rope over something solid and hoist him up onto a chain, then chainsaw the legs off the chair to hang him.

But what about the tazer and the Glock? Simple, with the deed done you're now a wanted man, at least if the only witness talks... But that witness is black. So, tazer your black sidekick, then put the Glock in his hand and suicide him before he comes to. Leave all the tools you used there, walk down the street a ways, call an uber home. The police will show up and find a deceased black male, rule it a botched robbery-murder-suicide and close the case.

Done. Easy as pie. They won't have seen it coming, and they damn well won't ever again put stuff on the clearance rack that's not marked down! Post is supposed to be a joke, if you do this I'm not an accomplice or accessory, although I think it's a pretty solid plan.

I am not flaming the OP; but man do I have bigger fish to fry. On the other hand; my mother will stand in line for twenty minutes to return some crap she bought on impulse.
I have two feet under me; just fucking walk away from it. Might never come back.

Op sounds like a whiny gash.....

Ok so shit got misplaced on the table and you didn't get what you wanted. Move on....
If it still upsets you, then don't shop there. You are coming across as the current self entitled millenial generation. Don't know if you really are or not.
Why do you feel the need to tattle and take repercussions over something as insignificant as this? It's not like the manager and his buddies ran a train on your wife.

Rant over

Honestly, OP should just switch to FagBook. This sort of drivel is exactly what that entire platform was made for.

Look at all the time you wasted arguing for stores to screw over customers. What a whiny gash.
