A Lesson On Paying Attention

So Sam's Club is my new favorite happy place. Is that weird? Whatever...

This trip started out great!

Something like this...

and this...

I'm pretty sure this is what heaven looks like even though I can't back that up with scripture.

We made it, all is well...

Then it started to go like this...

So of course I just wanted to get out of there before they had to call security.

I was in such a rush that I signed my bill and didn't notice this...

I am almost positive I didn't walk out with 10 25lb bags of dog food and 10 bags of chicken nuggets. I could be mistaken... but I'm sure the 90 year old woman with the blinged out glasses checking my cart at the door would have noticed. Maybe the bling got in the way. She was the cutest thing I ever did see.

So after loading up the car, and the kids and driving away {did I forget to mention I didn't look at my receipt until I was on my way home?}, I got to turn around, unload the kids and go talk to the manager.  She was very kind, especially considering my kids were completely wigging out by this point.

And here was my refund, drum roll please...

Wow, still not sure how I missed that, I'll blame it on the kids.

It all worked out in the end and I didn't even have a nervous breakdown. And for that I rewarded myself with a tuna sandwich, topped with red onions and potato chips.


Happy weekend everybody!

That is crazy!!!!! I wonder if I would have even noticed myself. Or even looked at the receipt. Then weeks later the amex bill would come and the mister would have some words with me. Especially since we don't have a dog.
So fun meeting you last weekend, by the way!

Erin said...

Amanda said...

Eeeek, Jami my mother in law just blessed us and got us a membership to SAMs while she was here visiting. I love it! The kids want to go b/c of the free samples and I can't wait til' they get all their Christmas things. My hubs says he always knows when I'm in the best mood it must mean we have food in the house. Something about stocking up that makes me feel a little more at ease. :)

Janelle said...

WOW glad you get refunded right away! Your such a patient lady I probably would have lost it after that! What a great example! Sounds like you got to have a yummy sandwich for lunch!

Branson said...

LOL! Oh my goodness gracious! That is one serious goof... I am surprised the checker didn't notice the amount was so much larger that it should have been. Glad the manager was understanding! ;)

The Morris Family said...

Thats crazy!!!! How could they not have noticed that!? I shop Sams every grocery day.....likey it alot!!!

Ok I'm wigging out just reading this! What a day you had. It's definitely a weakness bringing kids to the store, I feel like I spend more and impulse by just to get the heck outa there! But watcha gonna do? Wow! My head is still spinning. Thanks for a great laugh! Really!

katie said...

Oh, I know those days! Glad you enjoyed your reward!

Karen said...

Whoa!!! Thankfully you did catch it on your way home, I would have probably caught it months later as I was cleaning out my purse and found the receipt!

Emily said...

Holy crap!!! That's all I can say. Holy crap. Xoxo!

i am dying. 10 bags of nuggets. AND dog food? LOL. so awesome.

this happened to me a week or two ago - six baskets of strawberries. thankfully i caught it before i left the counter (but after i paid and signed) she had to return 5 of them. hahaha :)

Casey Martinez said...

k, this only confirms that I need to be better about checking my receipts after leaving a store...how does someone ring up that many things that aren't actually there?? That is a huge refund so glad you noticed it and were able to get it back!!

Handbags*N*Pigtails said...

Holy shmoly! Im pretty sure I would've noticed since we never spend that much there:)
On a side note, I finally found someone who eats chips ON her sandwich like I do! Tastes way better that way and the crunch is just perfection:)
xo

Nessa said...

Oh crapola... that is a lot of chicken nuggets!

Meredith said...

My gosh that's a gigantic refund. I'm glad you checked-i sometimes don't even look at the receipt! Lesson learned :) Your kids are still cute, even on the brink of meltdown!

The Arizona Russums said...

hahaha! hilarious!

chelsea {joy} said...

kinze said...

seriously ... wow ... that's just nuts!

Sugar Mama said...

I have done that before too! Walked out of a store and didn't even realize what I paid... heck, sometimes I forget if I even paid! ;)

Jamie said...

WOOOOAH NELLY!!! That's a lot of dog food!

Bill and Jenn said...

Jami, I am cracking up right now because I know the 90-yr old blinged-out lady that you're talking about!!! She always draws pictures on my receipt for my kids. (we are SAMs groupies, too!). I'll keep an eye out for you next time I'm there!! ;)
P.s.-- good grief, that was one heck if a refund!!!
