Normally I'd agree with you. And believe me I did push for them to sell me the light. Even told him that I only need the top part that was in the display, and would even pay full price
The problem, and further proof that there's too many stupid companies out there with useless people doing useless jobs...or at least the story he gave me to get me off his back. They don't even own their own displays, so they're not allowed to sell the display model, even though it's the last one, and they're not getting anymore in. Eventually the moron from that company will come in, and probably just thrown the display away.
In the old days, they could have sold it to me, actually made a sale
, it wouldn't wind
up in a landfill, and they'd be rid of it and wouldn't have to deal with explaining this to the next customer who want that last light.
The one's I got from Lowes are actually a little nicer, though.
