    Ahhh, California, the land of fruits and nuts...

    Woman returns ‘dead’ Christmas tree to Costco in Jan. for full refund

    http://wfla.com/2018/01/10/woman-returns-dead-christmas-tree-to-costco-in-jan-for-full-refund/

    SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (WFLA) — While the rest of us were debating where to abandon our trees, one woman decided to take her’s back for a refund.

    So come January, the woman reportedly wanted her money back for her once lively Christmas tree because it was now dead.

    Customers at the Costco in the suburbs of Los Angeles were blown away, and one man couldn’t help but post the rest of the details on Facebook.

    “I can’t make this stuff up,” he wrote. “Woman in line at Costco, totally nonchalant, to return her Christmas tree ‘because it is dead’ on January 4.”

    Amazingly, she actually did get her money back, according to the post. But not without a little bit of shaming from the store and other customers.

    So something to keep in mind for next year, if your Christmas tree is “dead” after being chopped down a month before, you may be able to get a refund.

    Does not surprise me a bit. I worked Wal-Mart 20-something years ago, putting myself through U. Even in Arkansas, there were any number of people returning items for dumb-as-a-stump reasons.

    Any wonder why I love her? She just called Kirk a retard, a glue sniffer & a waterhead all in one post. And that was just her saying "Hi".

    That’s the whole “customer is always right” BS at work for you.
    Costco only have themselves to blame for their return policy.
    Home Depot also has a retah-ded return policy for their garden department. I know somebody who has returned dead plants.
    All the power to you.

    I sold plenty of computers while working at Wal-Mart!

    Apparently, they recently found one that the user forgot to run AV on.

    I told him he should have used Linux.

    Newbie. :p
    We had a bank of 64's running product torture tests back in the 90's. They were uber cheap to scoop up by then and did the simple task they had to perform with no fuss whatsoever. And when one crapped out, we had a replacement at hand. Until we didn't. Then we sucked it up and went to a bank of 286's.

  18. I still have a Commodore 64 in a box somewhere. I keep thinking I should see if I can get it operational so my kid can play all the old games.

    She Who Must Be Obeyed harassed me into getting rid of mine in a White Elephant Gift Exchange 10 or 12 years ago.
