Because alcohol has such a small profit margin...

The grocery store I go to has zombie kids working the checkouts and they are decreed to make stupid bullshit small talk and to ID 32 year old men like myself. When they get so distracted, they often will forget to ring up beers and whatnot I buy. I never catch the mistake until I am out in my car or on the way home.

I am NOT cool with people actively trying to deceive stores though, like how people will empty a 6er of DFH Raison díEtre and fill it up with 6 singles of WWS. Thatís a dick move that I cannot comprehend.

The margin is actually quite small, especially when it relates to general grocery margins.

I agree about active deception. In your example, thatís theft.

I seem to get burned more than somehow ending up ahead due to a pricing mistake.

For instance I saw Alesmith Yulesmith on the shelf a few months ago. Its summertime and summer Yulesmith is out, sweet! I grabbed one.

The store had put out last yearís summer Yulesmith!

It was expensive and it was terrible.

They tricked me pretty good.

I respect your honesty. I hope the majority of people would do the same.

Somebody labled a few Hoppin Frog BA Boris as "out of date" (1yr old) and were selling them at $11.99 a bottle. Needless to say, I cleaned that shelf up.

When I was in Halifax for grad school the local liquor store put Rochefort 10 on sale for $2.89 a bottle down from $6 or so. Iím still bitter that I was too broke to buy more than a few.
