I always check the carton of eggs before I buy them to be sure none of them are broken. Never thought about them not having the correct number of eggs in them.

From experience, I have learned not to just 'look' at the eggs to be sure they aren't cracked; but I move them all. Sometimes they are cracked on the bottoms and you wouldn't know just by 'looking' at the tops, so if I can move them all I know none are cracked unless very recently cause if they have been cracked on the bottoms, the egg seeps out and acts like a glue and sticks the egg to the bottom of the carton so they won't move.

I do this exact thing also. The stock clerk asked me why I did it. Duh!!

I bought my very first digital camera online from a camera store in New York City. It was sold as brand new but when I turned it on there were pictures from a program at a day care already in the camera. They weren't concerned in the least but I sent it back and got my money back.
