Hell....if it has been sitting around that long, talk them down. Or tell them that they hit your gas line.
Microcenter is famous for putting stuff buried on shelves and/or in the wrong section and continuously discounting them until somebody stumbles upon them and gets them at a steal. I got an unopened $200 noise reduction headphones for $35 6 months ago
They were actually marked at $60 but rang up at $35. It would appear they could not even find them to mark them down the last time. I found them in the keyboard isle.
About the gas line...
It was the main feed for my side of the street...the whole street....and the street behind my house. Gas Co said it knocked around 350 customers out of service. There was no shut off valve. It sounded like a jet engine and was waving tree branches 60' in the air above it. I would have laughed except a fireman in a full suit with mask banged on my door handed me a mask and said "put this on and follow me quickly"
They had to evacuate 20 houses. Of course a torrential downpour started 15 mins after I was evacced. I called my dad to come get me and we went to a bar for the 5 hours it took them to get it back on.... he felt sorry for me and paid the bill
They had to fix it 'hot' as they say which involved 2 guys in a fire suit and 2 fir trucks with 4 hoses deployed and ready. I though I let the plumbers off easy! I'm pretty sure the Gas company did not. Bonus : I got a new lawn and some evil holly bushes removed for free!
Edit to add: Pulled the trigger!
