I'm wondering if your tapes were supposed to be $8.95 per tape with $8.40 for
shipping and handling? That would be much more reasonable, but a tremendous
error on the part of the company's billing clerk.

I'd like to share my video pricing story of the day. For many years, we've
purchased dance instruction videos from a guy in Memphis who shall remain
nameless. I just opened a package of 6 tapes that he sent to me on
approval. I flipped when I looked at the invoice --$6210 ($895 per tape
and $840 shipping & handling). Who is he kidding -- he sent the things
library rate through the mail.

Gee. What a way to do business!!!
