    BTW, the Handyman that I use is a part-timer. Heck, if I hired him fulltime he'd have more money to spend but then, I'd have to provide him with Health Insurance!

    The last time I ordered checks my bank advised me because if ID theft not giving any info other than my name. If Obama has his way we will all have the stamp on our body somewhere so they can just scan you and have all your info wont that be easy.

    I'm with you on the protection of personal information. We are hammered by the media, our financial institutions, and experts to protect ourselves by not releasing SS#, birthdate, etc. And then the vendors want all of that and more. I understand they are dealing with a steady stream of fraudulent transactions, but we are left twisting in the wind, right in the middle. I think you did the right thing. Did you make sure the manager heard about the refusal to sell a single part and the Moen policy of lifetime warranty? It might not change anything, but who knows, and it might make you feel better.

    That's for a day when I'm not still a bit pissed.

    I started a similar thread a while back.

    http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...hlight=tractor

    The sad part is, i bought the part online, the guy I bought it from was not from this country, i saved myself money, and the local shops are going under fast around here.

    I would have done the same thing as you, but then again I havent wrote a check in many years, the 3% surcharge is a bit much, why not just mark up the item and not post a big sign. It is way less of a big deal for the part to be 82.40 then it is to maike it 80 then tell someone there is a 3% fee for using a card. It is all about perception.

    I have the same problem with all the local stores around here.

    Similar experience with a local business. Great hamburger place actually. Their burgers and fries and onion rings are freshly made and very well priced. Ordered a burger with onion rings and when I got my order the rings were burnt. I bring it back and tell them my rings are burnt. The owner looks at the rings and says to me "Seriously?" They were very dark brown and black. My response was, "Do you think I'm bringing them back just because, SERIOUSLY?" He cooks up a new order of rings and that is the last he's seen of me in almost a year. Won't go back either. It's a shame too becasue I used to go there at least once if not twice a week.

    A forum? No kidding? Thanks for passing that tidbit of information my way, Bill. Actually, that's probably the most astute post out of you in months.

    You want to explain what Obama has to do with HPL getting the third degree before the hardware store would accept his check? Please do. I'm waiting with baited breath

    There's A LOT of stuff on here i don't bother to read because it's tiresome.-Paul

    Thats ok everyone is entitled to their own opinion its still America, hopefully it will be a better one after Nov. My point was once Obama has us all take the " Mark" we wont need to show ID they can just scan the mark on our hand and have all our info.
