Happy End on my fiasco trip to Publix - Show and Tell - I paid $23.84

For those who don't know me well, I'm far away from being a quitter and this post is not about the $1.50 I saved... it's about principles.
After I came back from my morning field trip to Publix (pretty aggravated... read HERE to find out about it) I needed to go to work - I'm a local photographer, so I couldn't go back right away and finish today's novela (soap opera).

I'm happily to say, I just came back home with my $1.50 and the way I resolved was:
- I talked to the manager.
- I brought a printed copy of Publix's coupon policy.
- She apologized about the lack of knowledge on their associates part.
- She made copies of my receipt, policy and finally... the $1.50 redeemed coupon.
- She promised me this won't happen again.

Time to show you what I've got from Publix this morning:
