Depends on if they sold it as new or used as-is.

If it's new it's just a packaging mistake. These things happen. If 7-11 wont take it back go to the publisher with proof of purchase and they'll fix you up.

Since it is 7-11, I am guessing it is either used or is new, but was opened and messed with for theft prevention, and the booklet is lost.

If it's used, you're screwed and you kind of deserve it, if new, do what Crainger said.
