    If they don't pay then block them from buying from you again

    When I click on the "last post" link to this thread, it obviously takes me straight to the bottom of the page and I scroll up to where I left off. Scrolling up, is it that crazy that I see a few photos and can say "I'll bet this is DarkMatter's post"?

    Yo, Frenchy (if it is indeed you): What catside said. The fewer bombs you lob, the longer they'll let you hang around this time.

    Oh, you have a worthy nemesis in darkmatter. I look forward to the "finds duels." It's on!

    I can't take it anymore. Darkmatter, I'm coming to visit you in the next few weeks and going to campout at these stores. I should find enough stuff to at least pay for the trip. I've always wanted to see California anyway.

    I did the same thing. Was halfway through the pics and realized it had to be DarkMatter. I think it was the second Isaia that did it.

    I didn't go anywhere today. My best spot is having a 50% off/get rid of stock day Friday and Saturday, so not only would it have been packed, but I know what was there yesterday so there was no point (the turn-around isn't that quick). But I'm definitely looking forward to next week.

    Off-topic: Does anyone do their own alterations? I hem pants and skirts (good to pick things up for the wife), shorten/lengthen sleeves and stuff like that. Saves money on alterations and is surprisingly quick and easy.

    Of course I was wrong.

    And Im telling you a second time now, quit trolling. My 2 year old daughter listens after two times, I hope you do too.


    I could make a head joke here, but Ill just say no. :)
