Returns, Exchange and Trade-Ins

Deck your cars with bags and prizes
Bah! bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!
Tis the season for exhanges!
bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!
Don we now our gifts and treasures.
Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!
Slow the traffic moves in measures
Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!

See the growing line before us!
Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!
Stand in line and see those who bore us!
Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah! Bah!

Bolt on the Wii is rated E for everyone, look closely at the E.  It says: 10+  In other words, not meant for a 5 year old or a grown up supposed intelligent adult. So return it for Batman Leggos on the Wii.  A little better but stll 10+  At least this one I can figure out!!

Receive an awesome remote control car that does tricks and flips from your cousin.  Too bad it doesn't work.  Exchange for...ooops they are credit for the sale price and get a hot wheels track.  Take hot wheels track home only to realize it has been opened and taped shut.  No car, missing pieces and stickers are GONE!  Go back to return that item plus the two others you purchased earlier and see the line has now quadrupled in length and say out very loud, "NO FREAKING WAY!"  Purchase an entirely different hot wheels track and decide to come back the next day.

Go back the next day and discover you are stuck in the same ridiculously long line.  Stand in line for 45 minutes and receive a full refund for your purchases and move on to the next store of choice.

Aren't returns fun???  But wait there's more.  Head to Wally for some regular purchases, plus a much needed new house phone and some other items.  Aside from blowing a huge chunk of change you see that the Christmas leftovers are just that...leftovers.  You also learn that people likely push their carts in the same fashion in which the drive!  Exhausted, you return home and hope to never go back.  And we all know how that story goes!

What did you have to return this year?

Did you make up that song? Too funny! Sorry about all the trouble. We got lucky, no returns necessary

No returns Honey. Thanks goodness! I hate returning stuff. Actually, I hate shopping! Happy New Year!

Rachel said...

My only return is an online item. Too bad the return/packing slip got thrown away. It's making it a bit harder - but no lines!

I also went to Best Buy and stood in a very L O N G line.

I didn't have to return a darn thing :) I lucked out! But seems most of mine came from on-line shopping. I love my techy husband :)

Ahh lucky me, I didn't have to return a thing - but I've been there before. The storms we've had slowed down the shopping/returning madness that usually happens right after Christmas though.

I really really HATE returning things. Luckily this year I had nothing to return! My older kids did though so they did it themselves - OHHH Yeah!
The traffic has been horrendous though just doing anything!!

I love the song.

Crap. We just bought Bolt for DS for our five year old. I am a bad, bad father.

The Drama Mama said...

ABSOLUTELY nothin. Ha. Sorry. We got mega lucky, and nothing needed to be returned. Yay!

Amy said...

Still haven't done my returns. Just lazy, I guess. What are you going to do?
I love your poem/song! And people do drive their cars and carts the same way.
