    I do not get when it became "ok" to not remove the tags on clothes, wear them out, then return them. I particularly do not get how this has become a source of pride for some people, particularly young women.

    I was in a Hugo Boss a little while ago and the SA still had the brand tag on the right hand sleeve. He had clearly owned the jacket for months judging by the state of it.

    Not the same thing, I know, but it reminded me none the less.

    That practice seems totally fair and above board to me.

    This is just so wrong:

    So they're drinking so much they puke on themselves and then return the clothes? W.T.F?

    One of the worst night's on my life was when I got a phone call from my girlfriend that she didn't know where she was and couldn't read signs. It was like 2:30am and I was in a cab driving to locations she was trying to explain to me, when I finally found her and got her in the cab she began projectile vomiting all over the place. I was covered in puke, she was covered in puke and the cab driver was screaming at us in Spanish. I pulled her out, handed the driver and $50 and that is only half the story.

    I didn't have to option to return my bespoke suit in that case.

    Oddly, she said she only had two drinks, but her and her friend were talking to some "weirdo". I think she was roofied or something.

    That is scary. I remember you talking about it when it happened.

    Did she return her clothes?

    She made me take them to the cleaners, but I took them to a new place because I didn't want our usual people to know me as puke guy. :laugh:

    I think it's telling that the people who do this type of thing are more likely to vomit on themselves than spill a drink.

    :laugh:

    I'm also thinking the people that left them in a "crumpled heap" on the floor all night were getting their knees pinned to their shoulders by a one night stand.
