    so I called around checking stock with dpci`s this afteroon and my local target said yes we have jazz and starscream. I asked if i could put the items on hold and she said that they weren't on the floor so not to worry. I raced over went to guest service and the clerk there says she just sold all jazzs. Shes nice and gets me two starscreams so I don't yell. I decide to call the next target 7 miles away. they have jazz and are willng to hold two of them. I get there and when I claim my prize I see that when they put my name on it with giant piece of tape acoss both figures taping them back to back. Damn. I still don't get mad and go look around. at the register I get stuck behnd some lady buying a stack of cash cards. the cashier apologizes for the wait aand the btch says "don't be sorry I'm spending money" Now super annoyed so much so I don't notice the lady only scanning my jazz bundle once. ten bucks latter I'm very happy

    Gratz on the discount, I guess?

    If you're careful removing the tape, there shouldn't be a problem

    I'm pretty sure he means the movie fig repaint, Golden.

    I gotta say, though - I'm all for sticking it to the man and all, but that sounds a whole lot like stealing to me, whether or not it was the employee's fault. It seems almost like you're trying to justify it by talking about how poorly the Target experience was.

    Maybe I'm reading it wrong, though - but I still think you should have paid for the figures you got.

    It's the store's error. He didn't shoplift.

    Theft by deception- no pun intended. is still the same as stealing. He knew so he showed intent.

    By that logic then, if I dropped a $10 bill on the street and you were following me and saw me do it - you could keep it and that would be OK because it was my fault I dropped it?

    I don't think so.

    He said he didn't notice. There's no deception if he didn't look at the receipt until after he left. You expect him to go back now?

    if I was in that position, I'd let them know they forgot to scan it. I've let them know before. I almost got cybertron optimus prime (leader class) for free from TRU like that, but I told them the scan didnt go through.

    I would.

    :lol  OK or not I'd still do it. "A fool and his money are soon parted."

    But I would NOT deliberately pick your pocket.

    Awesome. You stole and you have two G1 Jazzes, while the rest of us can't find one to purchase. Nice.

    I dunno. I have no issues with this. If he took the item, put it in his pocket or bag and walked out, that is theft for me. What happened here is a store error. He had every intention to pay for the item but the store messed up. Not his fault the store messed up.

    Is it ill gotten gains? Sure. Is it theft? Not so much in my opinion.

    I wouldn't have bragged about it though. ;)
