Missing Parts

Why do we have to learn the same lesson over and over again and still not grow wise enough to make the same mistake even still yet again another time?

Lessons I have learned repeatedly:
1. When you ask for help finding an item, the store employee will grab the item on the top of the pile.
2. The item on the top of the pile of items is a returned item, brought back by a customer.
3. Returned items are always missing parts.

If you're like me, when you shop for an item, you make sure you get a box or package that hasn't been opened or returned. But when an employee walks halfway through the store, grabs the item you want and hands it to you, you sometimes accept it. We don't want to be impolite and say, I'd like an unopened one, please.

1. Drill driver, but missing battery charger.
2. Shower bracket, missing screws.
3. Towel rack, missing mounting hardware.

Word to the wise, avoid returned packages. Make sure the item is sealed, or lacking sealed packaging, that all the parts are there.
