    ^^^ I can definitely see what you're saying, but on the flipside, a no-return policy would discourage me from picking up stuff with which I was unfamiliar.

    ^^^ That would be me! [​IMG]

    All the Goodwills in the Boston area have a VERY generous return / exchange policy. It's 14 days with receipts for all clothes (not ties, belts, or shoes) and 24 hours for all electronics (this is actually pretty broad - they let me take a vintage Coleman camp stove home to look up if it had all its parts and test it before returning it and explaining that it was incomplete). Since I shop at them so much, I always have current receipts and one of the employees explained to me how each item on each receipt has a letter by it that corresponds to the color of the plastic tag attached to the item. They use the colors to track their inventory and as long as the letter on the receipt and the color on the tag matches, they'll accept the exchange. I know most of the employees and managers and they know what I do, so they never front on me when I make returns or exchanges. I'm on especially good terms with the staff at the GW where I found those shell cordovan Lattanzis and black Balenciaga heels for my wife (she also found a nearly new pair of $425 Loeffler Randall "Colette" heels in her size when we were there together recently). The employees there will sometimes bring out new stuff and let me go through it if I "help" them by taking it off the rolling rack (or box if it's ties) and putting it on the display rack. I get to pretend that I work there, lol. [​IMG]

    Also, now that I have analyzed the finds and compared pictures and writing styles, I am now comfortable flipping my desk in honor of the triumphant return of Frenchy / Valium / Frenchytoo! Welcome back!

    What? That movie was funny. It was SUPPOSED to be bad.

    On a related note, I watched Machete with the gf the other night... She did not get why I thought it was brilliant.

    It was funny, for sure. But soooo bad. However it is train wreck bad, so everytime it comes on, i have to watch it.
    Not as bad as Big Money Rustlas, even I, being a bad movie fanatic, couldn't finish that one.

    OMG! The scene where he shoots the mini gun that were mounted on the handle bars of his bike while he was in mid air! Classic!

    I just talked with Elvis Mitchell the other day, and we spent a good five or ten minutes talking about how great Pootie Tang is. So there.
