    what if this was an honest mistake??
    seriously, I've walked out of some stores with unpaid for

    I would return it immediately and be BRIGHT red!!! :blushing:

    I almost did that yesterday!! Bought some fabric at Joann and laid the cut pieces on top of some fat quarters..the cashier just rang up the cut pieces from the cutting ticket and didn't ring up the fat quarters...thankfully I caught it before I walked out:p


    Anyway, if he did do it on purpose I agree...incredibly stupid!
