Suckers for punishment

Today I had need to visit the infamous shed-losing DIY store again. Just out of curiosity, I had a look around in the yard to see what they'd done with the duff panel that I sent back. Yes, you guessed it - they've put it in with the rest of the bits of the other 7x7 shed, so it's for sale again. I know that it's the same panel, because I marked it with a water-based marker-pen where it wouldn't show. Sometime soon, some poor sod's going to buy that shed and then have to jump through the same fiery hoops as I did trying to get the same duff panel exchanged.

I'd have thought that the staff would have had enough hassle over this item, but they seem ready to start the cycle all over again.

It just beggars belief.
