To save weight? Race cars hole out wheel spokes and shift levers for that reason...

I assume that it's so you can hang your meat cleaver on a hook, as a proper cleaver is a bit too big to easily fit in a drawer or a knife block.

If you get it stuck in the bone of your victim what you're cleaving, you can pass something through it to aid in pulling it cleanly out.

I just asked to return and for a refund on something I bought on Amazon. I went through the website to return it and they gave me a message that the refund will issue and I DO NOT have to return the item. The fuck?

I've had that happen a few times, mostly on things where it's not worth it to ship the item back to the seller. One time, though, it was for a whole case of candy (Airheads, I think) that we had over-ordered for a youth outing. I think the case was like 30-40 bucks, but because it was a food item they didn't want it back. I felt kind of bad for getting the refund and then being told to keep the candy, but you only find out they don't want it back after you initiate the return.

I had that happen with them once...
I ordered a bar table set, and they sent me a pack of 3 end tables instead from the same company.
I called to tell them, and they said, "eh, keep them, we'll get the bar table set out to you today"

Some of the online foam mattress companies have a return policy where you basically donate it to a thrift store, give them the receipt, and they refund you. They can probably claim the tax deduction and they don't have to deal with the insane shipping charge on returning the thing after it has fully inflated.

Also, grocery stores and similar places technically accept returns, but they just give you the money and throw the food away...this just cuts out the process of actually going to the store. Amazon knows if you are doing this too often and will just cut you off.

And believe me...you do NOT want to be cut off from shopping at amazon in our new modern world.

It worked out great for me.
I Christmas gifted the table set to a good friend that had sad old furniture.
I was a goddam hero...

I bought an open box sit to stand desk online, and it showed up without the actual motorized legs. The store couldn't figure out what went wrong and refunded me rather than ship a giant desk back (it is 66x30). Turns out there is basically one manufacturer for those legs for all brand, so I ordered new legs and wound up with a desk for about 80% off retail.
