This is sort of funny so I will repeat it here.....
I wanted the Coleman Hot Water on Demand setup. I waited until Kmart had them really cheap in the catalogue (about $270) then ripped into Annaconda with the catalogue (Annaconda had them at $450 at the time!!!). Waltzed on up to the counter with my catalogue and my hot water system and they stopped me, said they have to call their manager, who then said "we first have to ring Kmart and make sure they have them in stock otherwise we won't honour the discount".
Meanwhile about 10 angry people were stuck in the line behind me while this phone call took place. I told them why, and, that they should also go and get a Coleman Hot Water system from the shop because you would never get one this cheap ever ever again. So .... almost all of them went and got one and came back just in time for the manager to hang up the phone red faced and admit "Kmart have them in stock, we will honour the advertised discount". I made a lot of friends that day .... none of them worked for Annaconda .....
Sometimes it's just the principal of it.
