How much?

I don’t remember this ever happening to me before and within the last 24 hours, I’ve run across the same frustrating situation twice. I’m at a store, and I want to buy something. But which brand do I want? And which model is right for me exactly? I decide it’s a toss up and that the price of each will have to factor into the decision. But how much does it cost? I don’t see a price on the item. It’s hanging on the peg of some other item (which DOES have a price label right on the package). After looking until I’m sure there is no price for it anywhere to be found, I’m forced to carry everything I want a price for all the way to the front of the store to get a price check. Of all annoying things in life, this ranks fairly low, but still, yah.

I remember my brother complaining once because he was being forced to put price labels on ALL items in the store (he was the manager of an OfficeMax). It doesn’t seem like such a bad idea any more.
