I was shopping today at Lowes Home Improvement and has a good many items in my cart. When I was being checked out,a welcome mat did not have a bar code on it.
The person checking me our called that department several times, but no one answered. She left and another person took over. She too tried getting someone from that dept. several times.
At that point a man walked by who I assume was some sort of supervisor. The woman who was checking me out told him the problem she was having and he told her to page a certain person and gave his name to her. She paged him but got no response.
After she had paged him a few times, I finally realized I was not going to get a price . When I told her I was not going to continue to wait and to remove the mat from my cart, I could see she was relieved .This was a woman who was bored, uninterested in her job, and did not pretend to care whether I bought the mat .I will go to Home Depot the next time I need to purchase anything from this type of business, although they are probably as lax as Lowes.
