What would you do?

Alright, I don't think I have a vast audience, yet, but I'd like to see if I can get a reader or two engaged.
I'll post a dilema and ask you for your coice, and how you got there.

Simple?
Here goes:

A book store has two copies of a book you really want.
One copy, soft cover, has damage on a few pages, bcause we all look though books we are considering, and is full price.
The next copy is hard cover and about the same price through on the bargin table.
You pick up the hardcover and at checkout discover someone has swapped the price sticker.

What do you do, and why?

I'd do my utmost to get it at the lower price. After all, it's not me that's labelled it that way, so I am merely taking advantage of the situation, and I don't see anything wrong in that.

Nice blog, by the way!

I would get whichever book that will cost me the least, even if that means returning the wrongly-labeled book back to the shelf.
But yeah, I love checking out books on the bargin tables. Sometimes I find books in stores and will then come home to search a few sites online to see if I can find it even cheaper.

Not in paris and sunniiday,
thanks for the comments.
I actually don't have an answer for this.
Sometimes I've just paid what they asked, and I have pointed out that a different book rang up. The clerk looked at me like I was on something.
To be fair, if the computer system I sell off of rings lower, I let the customer have it, but let the folks who program know.
