* IWarnedYou: [[http://notalwaysright.com/weighed-down-by-your-thumbs-up/ This customer]] bought 80 80-pound bags of cement, and tried to put it all in his pickup truck.

When the rear end of the truck gives out from the weight, the customer is brushed off when he demands the store replace his truck, telling him that he gave consent to load his truck with the cement, and they had video to prove it.
