Default Bunk business???

So in an effort to get new boots for this winter I've gone to two shops and tried on 10-15 pairs of boots and the ones that I like the best I got from a small chain. 2013 button ruler restricted. After buyin these for 240 I went to another locally owned shop that also does dive equip for summer. They had. Huge sale going on(the only one they do all year and it only lasts two days) I found another pair of button rulers I liked in a different color scheme. I bought them for 179 (10 percent off) regularly 199?

After getting both boots home and tryin them on I realize that they were from different years, even though the local store told me they were this years model, they were the '12s. I didn't like them as much, and we're about a 3oz difference in weight. I returned them to the store and swapped them for smith I/os that I like for 175 and a chesty for my go pro. I didn't see a price on the chesty but I assumed it would be the same as I had seen it everywhere else, no more than 35. They were actually 40 and then I got home and received a phone call from the salesman and he tells me that I wasn't charged enough. So I have to return to the store again and pay them 20 dollars more because he forgot about the discount on the boots.

I am thinking about just returning it and taking my business elsewhere. It seems like most places are selling everything listed for a lot cheaper. If not online but in town anyways, would I be a dick for telling them to piss off and just return it all and get it cheaper somewhere else??
