Re: Great day... I guess


Same kid that your mother brought to your house?

I suppose someone might change some of them, but people are generally pretty
honest at our sales.  I guess if it did start presenting a problem we'd find
another way.  Also, there are only so many colors available.  so for the
highest $ three colors we had to take slip on tags instead of pot inserted
labels.  These would present more of a challenge to remove on the sly.
