Unfinished brakes?

This may look like a mindless post, but I'm actually kind of serious.

I had to get rotors and pads for my daily driver a few days ago. Now, normally I always check the parts before I hand over my money to make sure all is well. But this time I didn't. I paid, left and tossed them in the back seat so I could change everything today (Sunday). Well, last night I popped open the boxes, and lo and behold there isn't any stud holes in it! The car is a '98 Hyundai Elantra (don't laugh, I keep this thing in top condition and have yet to come accross a problem. Even at 152,000 miles), and those-in-the-know know about the bolts between the lugs. Those bolt hoiles were there.

Now my question is, has anyone ever come across an unfinished product? The counter lady called another store and they had the same issue. Now I have to wait two days for finished rotors (they did upgrade to better quality stuff though). But it seriously irritates me. And I have that thought in the back of my mind that says it will happen again.

Oh, in case anyone asks because this car is far from "American" and far from anything that resembles a hotrod, I have found that people who wrench on old stuff knows way more than the import crowd. That's why I ask here.
