This reminds of two stories, a Target and Wl Mart story.
When Spy Troops was out and they released a Viper/Alley Viper two pack and Cobra Commander/Bat two pack, I bought them from Target. For some reason the Viper/Alley Viper rang up a without the sale price while CC/Bat were fine. I talked to CS about it and they said there was nothing they could do. I told them that the figures were from the same wave and came out of the same box. How can they be priced different? They said that they were probably collector's items. I told them that it was nowhere on there that they were collector's editions figures and were the same. I told them I expected them to honor the sale price and would not leave until they adjusted it. They adjusted "just this once" for me. Idiots
Recently I was in CA and had just renewed my RI license. In RI, they give you a print copy of your lic that is stamped. This serves as your temp lic until your new one comes in. So I flew out of Boston that Monday and had no problem with TSA accepting it. I get to Wal Mart later that day in CA to buy $100 worth of groceries and the cashier practically took a fit when I gave her the copy. I had to stand there and explain it to her that she needed to accept it. I told her that TSA had no issues, so Wal mart shouldn't either. She had to have the CSM come over, talk to gawd knows who and get the ok. Couple of days later, I went to another Wal Mart and bought one of the DVD packs. Same thing happened when I got to the checkout. This time, the CSM, a very unitelligent wench of a (wo)man, tells me that they won't take it, that it's Wal Mart policy. Me being the disgruntled person that I am ask to see where this is posted. I tell her that I have never seen that posted anywhere so where did she get her info from? She tells me that I can look at their "REALLY big book"(?) that has all their policies. I told her straight out to get me her manager. She walks off and I watch her approach some other moron. So I look at the cashier and tell her to give me the box set back so I can go to talk to them. She was hesitant to hand it to me (WHAT?). I walk up to these two mopes and the first dumbass is trying in vain to explain the situation, which of course she screws up. I show the other mope the temp lic and he tells me that he can't accept it. I told him that other Wal Marts were ok with it, why weren't they? No answer. So I tell them forget it, then I will just go through self checkout, to which SHE replies, "You'll have to show it there as well." WHAT? I told them they both sucked and walked away. Went through Self checkout and bought my Joes.

Ive done this before, next time pull out your cell phone and call Target toy department and have them tell the cashier or whomever what the price is, it worked.

They get paid on average 8 bucks an hour at Walmart...
for 8 bucks an hour i wouldn't give a crap about plastic army men either.
You are lucky you walked out with your life dude.
Seriously though people who work in Supermarkets (myself included) are worried about losing their crappy low paying job due to the current economy. Feeding a family on low wages sucks and the pressures are phenomenal. Cut these people some slack and come back later.

Talk about being unreasonable. I loathe how everyone likes to "clump" everyone into one big group. Not all people who do the exact same job in different locations can be "clumped" together as if they are all exactly the same. People are different in various regions of America and other countries too. In defense of Walmart cashiers (along with cashiers everywhere)...they mostly want to keep the job they have and, they CAN get into trouble if they price match something without proof.

They thought they could talk me down on really expensive sunglasses, especially people from other countries. I kept telling them the sticker price is what it is period.
Some of them would be like "if you give me a deal, I'll bring lots of business." I said if I give you a deal, I will no longer be working here to get your business.
Are there those that work in retail that don't give a crap about their job? Sure, but so is there people like that in every profession.
I'm not exactly happy about the state of most of the toy isles in the stores around me either.
Don't clump everyone together people, and don't freak out so much over the price of a plastic toy. Either you have proof or you don't. Getting someone fired over $2 on a comic pack is not my idea of a "Win".

I always have to go to a price scanner in Target to get a price. I wish people would stop stealing the price tags. LOL.
