I’ve never gone to the big box and taken the junk from their stacks of `premium’ grade 2X4s (and the like) and thrown the bad ones on the floor looking for something that’s decent enough to use BUT I guarantee you: I’ve wanted to.
I’ve never been to Menards but at Lowe’s and Home Depot, I’m always amazed at the Crap they call premium.
So, while I understand your post, I gotta ask:
Are the “bad” ones really good or are they crap which shouldn’t be in the stacks to begin with?
If the answer is YES, then even though the customer was out of line, y’‘all are wrong too.
If the answer is NO, y’all should ban that customer from your lumber yard.
