I really hate people sometimes
I was at Target yesterday and came across a marked-down 2009 Goudey blaster, so I picked up since I hadn't bought much '09 Goudey and the price was right. I resisted opening it in the car since my wife usually gives me crap when I do that, so I took it home. I got home and ripped off the shrink-wrap, only to find that EVERY pack in the box had been opened. Instead of the 8 cards per pack, each pack had only 3-5 cards, all base. I was so pissed. I hate people that do crap like that. And even worse, after the person opened them, they RETURNED it to the store. Target, being the great operation they are, simply re-shrink-wrapped it. I'm not sure if I would be more mad if a) the Target employee didn't the check box contents for tampering since they wanted to be a lazy bum or if b) the Target employee checked, saw the ripped packs and thought "oh, we'll just put it on sale". So then, I had to drive 20 mins back to Target to get my 10 dollars back. I told the cashier that I got home, opened the box, and saw that all the packs were searched. I was fully prepared to raise hell if I was accused of the asinine act, but fortunately she could tell from my demeanor that I was pissed. She refunded my money and I was on my way, card-free. I wish I could meet the person that opened the packs and took the cards.
