I have been carrying a can of decaf coffee in my car for a week!

So, one day when I was at the local grocery I was buying a can of decaf coffee, and instead of getting the store brand which was my intent, I got a can of Folgers instead which cost a dollar or two more. I told the guy at the checkout I didn't want it and he took it off my bill however, he already had packed it in the bag and unbeknownst to me, I carried it out with me. I didnt notice until I got home. I keep meaning to take it back to the store, but the one time I was there since that time, I forgot to bring it in. I am sort of hoping when I finally return it, that they will tell me to keep it, but you never know. I didn't pay for it. I shouldn't have it. Are you carrying something in your car you haven't used or mean to return?

I am thinking what we have in our car, but I think there is nothing we have nor used or we need to return.

@snowy22315 - There is very little inside our car. In the drawer I have disposable gloves, face masks and hand disinfectant. Nothing in the trunk but a plastic folding crate and shopping bags.

Yes I had experienced that. I intend to return it but I have to travel for around 45 kilometers or it takes me an hour to get there at the supermarket in the capital city. Till I keep and use the item for good.

I go there to that store a few times a week usually but it has been awhile. Maybe I will go Sunday.

@snowy22315 It's good for if it's near or you have a service car.

Yes, we are... At the beginning of the pandemic, I bought a pack of masks I meant to take to a friend in Springfield. Before the pandemic, I was at my friends' house once a week. I haven't been to see them since they won't get vaccinated and Pretty doesn't want me around them in case they pass Covid to us.

@snowy22315 I guess so. I really miss them, though.

@snowy22315 I hope he isn't, too... The bad part is we just can't tell.

@snowy22315 I took back 4 cans of fire hot chopped tomatoes. I didn't buy them and I think I got part of someone else's order. She gave me a refund, turned around, and dropped them in the trash. I was shocked. I mean, it was cans. She said it was the liability, they had a rule that if the food left the store, and was returned for any reason at all, it's all discarded.

@MarieCoyle Oh wow, that might be the case here too. You wouldn't think something enclosed like that would be problem though.

I rarely have to return anything, but I did purchase a pair of black pants to wear that I thought I would like, and they were badly needed. But after bringing them home and trying them with the top I wanted to wear, I hated them. Tags are still on them, I just got them last week, so they are going back. I don't buy many new clothes or wear much besides jeans anyway, but I had lost weight and none of my old dress pants fit so I donated them.

I actually had a delivery from Walmart and it wasn’t my order. I took it to the store and I spent forever getting them to take it back. Next time I might just keep the items. I spent at least 30 or 40 mins . They didn’t seem to know what to do.

Oh brother...I will call the store later on today, to see if they even want it back.

I did that once years ago and ended up just keeping it. Can't remember what I did with it though.

Many stores now have a policy about all food returns, and I do mean, all of them. If you return something food or food related, they throw it away. So then no one gets to use it. What a waste.

i once got a children's mouthwash before I started going shopping every week at the store in person, then i had Walmart home delivery and my sister told me to throw it out. Walmart didn't come knocking on my door demanding it

It's easy to do - walk out with something that is already packed. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I doubt they'll remember when you go back.
