Please tell me this isn't ANOTHER store doing this?

Check out THIS thread at 2 Peas in a Bucket. Oh.... My... Heck!!! I blogged about another store doing this in September HERE.

This reminds me of a story I heard - probably not true, but still tragically funny. A man arrived at the ER with all his fingers sliced off. When they doctor asked him what he had done, he said he was mowing the lawn and realized his boxwood shrub could use a trim. So, he decided to mow it since it was flat. He put the lawnmower up on the shrub, mowed it and then grabbed the sides with his hands to put it back on the ground, WHILE IT WAS STILL GOING. And.... his fingers were history.

Later that day, ANOTHER man came into the SAME ER with HIS fingers all cut off. They asked him what happened and he said that he was driving through his neighborhood earlier that day and saw a man mowing his shrub and thought it was a great idea...

Is this what happened here? Did one store owner see the email of the OTHER store owner and decide it was a great business strategy to shamelessly beg for money from your customers?

Please say it ain't so.
