Something for a penny? Scary and TRUE

So, I did the strangest thing yesterday. I purchased something for $.01!

No, I didn't use coupons. No, it's not price after rebate. The actual price on the register receipt is $.01. (Maybe I'll scan it if people need proof)

I went to Wal-Mart to buy stuffs. I bought a lot more than I intended, but I was at the Super Wal-Mart and was getting the ingredients for my chili (which I have named "2"). One of the ingredients I need is a jalapeño. So I bought one.

I got to the register and the cashier was like "One?" - I said "Yeap" -- "Only one?" -- "That's all I need" -- she puts it on the scale, enters the PLU, and it rings up as $.01 (they're $.79/lb)

So, for everyone who gets pissed off at WalMart, here's what you do: Go in, and purchase 1 jalapeño. And pay for it with your credit card. It'll cost Wal-Mart more to process the transaction than you paid! (Note, I do NOT recommend doing this if you want to keep their prices low low low)
