    @AlteredBeast: If it were, it would be the other way around.

    Dear Consumerist,

    These kinds of “stories” are getting old. Computers make mistakes. Welcome to life.

    @twoply: In this case, it’s more likely an employee made a mistake. Something along the lines of punching in “909” instead of “900”, and then not clearing the old input before correcting. So, a $9.00 shirt gets marked as $9099.00.

    I don’t think hearing about stupid employees ever gets old.

    @twoply: Dear twoply,

    These consumerism stories are made to be funny. Lighten up.

  11. Grrrrrrr, now with two buns made of bacon. says:

    Hmm, I wonder if they have any deals like that on pickup trucks????

  12. Propaniac says:

    @twoply: You know, there are a lot of Consumerist posts that I skim past because they don’t particularly interest me. I’m not sure why you can’t do the same.

    @BobCoyote: I suspect that they went to enter $9.99 using the numberpad, and they accidentally hit the rather large 0 key instead of the decimal point since the two are adjacent to each other.
