  Okay, everyone....a true story of justice in the good old U.S. of A.
  Thought y'all might enjoy this; if nothing else, it shows internet
  justice, if it can be called that. 

My wife and I had just finished shopping at Harris Teeter in Chapel Hill,
NC and were going through the checkout line.  The cashier asked if I would
like a card that would let them keep track of all my purchases in their
database.  "I'm afraid not," I said with a small frown.  "Well," she said,
"would you let us buy your grocery list?"

"How much," I asked? "We'll give you discounts worth up to two-fifty," she
replied with a cute smile.  Thinking of how much I could really use a
couple hundred bucks, I signed up and asked her to subtract the discount
from my tab.

When she had finished ringing up our groceries and handed me the receipt,
I looked at the bottom and it said, "YOU HAVE SAVED $2.50 WITH YOUR VIC
CARD."  Boy was I upset!!  I told the cashier that when she said
"two-fifty" I did not realize she only meant a couple dollars and change. 

I told her I didn't want them using my grocery list anymore and offered to
give back the money, but she said once it had been entered into the
computer database, there was no way to erase it...the list would stand. 

I waited, thinking of how I could get even or even try and get any of my
grocery list back. 

I said, "Okay, you folks got my grocery list for only $2.50, and now I'm
going to have $2.50 worth of fun." I told her that I was going to see to
it that every computer in the whole world would be able to get my grocery
list for nothing. She replied, "I wish you wouldn't do this." I said, "I'm
sorry but this is the only way I feel I could get even," and I will.

So, here it is, and please pass it to someone else or run a few copies...
