My Sienna scissor jack was very hard to turn. Yesterday, I was in Tehuacan shopping at Wal-mart. They had several scissor jacks, and there was just one a bit bigger, a one ton rated jack, in a badly damaged box.
After some thought, I decided for around $15 or $20, I’d give it a try. When I checked out, it scanned at 33 pesos, a bit over two dollars. I informed the cashier that was a mistake. She got a superior and they checked. They asked me what price I thought it should be. I said around 300 pesos or more, 15 to 20 dollars.
In a few minutes, the superior told me, “It will be 33 pesos.”
I accepted it. I don’t even know if will work, but couldn’t see anything wrong with it visually. A neighbor kid was with me, and I joked I wouldn’t mind 10 at that price. I do not know if they felt 33 pesos was correct, which it clearly was not, or if it was a policy decision to give me the database price.
