    You guys are dense. I felt insulted, NOT BECAUSE I MISSED/ WASN'T OFFERED THE SALE PRICE, but because I was basically told an artificial number, that albeit being discounted, was obviously pulled out of their ass. I miss sales all the time, I pay full price all the time, I don't understand how you guys can think I'm a dick. The move inventory pulled is align with craigslist buyers who hand you $10 less than your asking price in person, shit is retarded. I would've been fine if they told me the sale was over, the fact that they came out with some random figure, as if they were doing me a favor, was ridiculous. Again, I may have misinterpreted their generosity but when somebody says "we'll take care of you" and asks for my size in the stock, assumptions must lie in the fact that I am receiving a discount. So I didn't receive it, and I didn't buy, end of story! This is random fashion thoughts, I see people rant here all the time. Linguist- I really am not that insulted or mad, but seeing how you guys are all up in arms and think I'm shitty is hilarious.

    ......you did receive a discount. just not the one you wanted. there was no artificial number, only a now-nonexistent number once the sale ended. on what grounds do you consider the new number arbitrary?

    Why anyone who isn't new here continues to go back and forth with whatever is beyond me. His posts generally break down into three categories:

    - New purchase
    - Boasts about special connection to numerous small retailers
    - Drivel chastising people who express interest in not paying retail for an item

    I'm kind of with him at times on that last one, especially during this past sale season when people were trying to find non-existent codes to stack with heavily discounted merchandise. Problem with his approach is that he draws it out and, at times, seems to use those situations to shoehorn in how he almost always pays retail.

    I would say it was arbitrary. Besides the sale being over, is there a system for the percentage discount? No, the number is arbitrary because it is made up. Sure you can argue that it was nice to offer a discount after the fact, but the number is still based on the whim of the sales associate. Had I gotten another sales associate, he may have honored the discount, or not given one at all. The number is arbitrary. I also want to make it clear this was the essence of my argument, of which I'm not truly angry or insulted, but in the back of my mind when they gave me an offer I thought (oh please) and politely declined. Moving on! :happy:

    actually, the way we are going to do this is you need to send them the money and i will cover the $70 if you are serious mr. fycus!

    i know who you talked to so they are waiting.

    um, no. send them the money and i will cover the $70. you are a serious buyer ... why do they need to invoice you? just let them know you are the person they talked to about the jacket.
