It's my own stupid fault, but I bought my elements for my HLT and BK today with all the goodies to get them wired up and ready for my control panel when I get that done. So I get my couplers ready, solder on the ring connectors and get ready to connect to the element and noticed that it was a 4500 watt, not the 5500 watt I wanted. I know I grabbed out of the right bin, and it never fails, if I don't check it, I get screwed because some ahole put them in the wrong bin!! I'll never learn.

So Lowes had nothing to do with it. Happens in every store because humans are lazy.

Yeah, I always get burned on that. Of coarse you can exchange it, but it always sucks when you think you are set to start building something...

Wait... Wait... And that is the fault of Lowes?
Would you consider it possible that some A-hole shopper put the item back onto the wrong hook?
And if so ? Is that Lowes fault?
Hmmm.. And you posted this blaming Lowes??

Think about it.
Just go back and exchange it. They will make it right.

I stated in the OP it was my fault for not double checking. Sheesh! Some of you need a few more beers! It still irritates me though. Their JOB is to put stuff on the shelf and make sure things are in the correct bin. My job is to buy said stuff.

As pointed out above, another shopper could have done that 30 seconds before you got there. When you go back see if the whole bin is filled that way....

So why blame Lowe's in the title of your thread?

I'm just messing you so don't take this personally, but that's part of the problem with this world today is the lack of personal accountability.....(not being specific to your case; just sayin')

Bwahahahahahah! Another sucker burned. I love playing that game!

It's especially exciting to mix up the plumbing department. Swap all the 1/2" and 5/8" bins. WhooHoo. Good times.

Next time, I think I'll put the Blue paints in where the Reds are supposed to be.
