DH and I went to town for doc appt and stopped to buy some ink for my printer. We got the full box of 3 cartridges. Paid $37.00. Got home - 30 miles -- and discovered the box had been opened from the bottom and REglued...the cartridges inside were USED!!!! ARRRRRGH! Called the store and they said to please bring it back and they'd make it good. They thanked us for letting them know...they'll go check EVERY box!!!! So - warning - check what you buy. :hunf:

I once bought some vanilla extract (and it isn't cheap) and when I got home found that someone had taken the vanilla out of box and replaced it with cheap red food color.

People are nutz these days.

The local Bi mart here in our town, they keep the pure vanilla extract behind the counter. They said people were taking it off the shelf and drinking it for the alcohol in it.

People are crazy. I'm sure vodka is much cheaper than pure vanilla extract. And no aftertaste! LOL!

Hopefully the store will research who returned the ink cartridges and prosecute...but I'm almost sure they won't...
