OK, I got the 420 reference, but help me out on this one.
I think he was making a joke that it might be a 50-50 chance that he would get back to the customer within one day.

I not only missed a simple joke, I immediately caught and liked your Violent Femmes reference. Age is starting to show.

EDIT: holy crap, 1983.

Arrived home from a long day at my new job to find a mysterious unexpected package (TWSS). It was nearly 6 lbs and contained something obviously solid. I wasn't expecting anything that fit that description, so my mind unfortunately went straight to "What asshole customer sent me a brick back as a return?"

I opened the box to find a pair of boots I had never seen before. Hmm, random.

Took me several minutes to figure out where they came from, and that was only after I searched my email box for "JM Weston"...where I found this ebay message from June 11th.

I started thrifting again. All day on Mondays. I drive my wife to grad school 2 hours away, then thrift in the city for 8 hours, then back home. The goal is to use the better finds to fund the hefty tuition without carrying a balance at the end, We'll see. Plus we can write off half the miles.

We may end up getting a second home closer to school, but we are just doing the commute for now. We are only 4 weeks in...3-4 years to go.

Just take out a bunch of student loans. Don't worry. The government is going to pay them off for everyone. 🤣

Wow! That's actually quite a collector model too!

Have you guys ever refunded the wrong person? Yeah. That just happened to me. Oh well.
