five senses friday - the puzzle

See Abby for information on participating in Five Senses Friday.

The soft, moist pumpkin bread Saint (see the guy in the hat?) made which is so good because the outside is sweet (unlike most breads) and the inside always melts in my mouth

frustrated because I wasn't very helpful on this puzzle, but my cup runnith over with love for these two people in my life (Bugley, my 13 yr old niece is behind the camera); I pray I will never forget how truly wonderful it is to feel so amazingly free and happy like this with the knowledge that I never knew life could be like this

the sounds of the tv show Malcomn in the middle in the background; they were laughing so hard I couldn't bring myself to ask them to turn off the tv

the ever present smell of defeat of Saint being able to put together a puzzle twice as fast as I can (yes, we're a bit competitive)

what an lazy afternoon could be like in 10 years should we actually have a future together

no receipt return

Someone explain this one to me, k?

I had a guy in tonight who returned three shirts from 2007. He did not have a receipt, but he wanted full price for them because the tags were still on AND he wanted cash back.


I have been in retail for over 12 years. I don't know anyone who will do this. Not one store.

If you don't have a receipt, a store doesn't know
a) how much you paid for it
b) how you paid for it

He threw a fit. He could not fathom that we would not do this for him. He was going to have to call corporate.


My favorite is when he said that he could go to (insert big department store name) and they would do exactly what he wanted. THEY would take care of him.

Well, then shit he should go there.

Honestly, not even Walmart will give a return purchase at the original value and in cash and they're the kings of returns. You can return a dead plant (that you killed), the pot and the planting soil (after potted) AND if you have a receipt they will give you cash back.

But no receipt = no refund.

We are at least a retail shop that has a computer system that can tell exactly what a piece is selling for right now. Obviously, we are lucky we have outlets or we wouldn't be able to give anything past the season like most stores. But the outlets allow us to sell our clothes longer - and therefore give return amounts longer.

I am just completely confused at where people get their ideas from.
