    I can't help but note the irony in this. First he's buying high branded status items that suck, and loving and defending them all the while because of the brand. Now he has bought something that is actually quite nice, and he isn't happy with it because it turns out that it's not as exclusive as he thought it was.

    That is not the point, TC. You're a lot better at selling cell phones than you are at following logic.

    Moo, I see your point here but man, just keep the bag and just let this thing pass ... chalk it as "learning" and invest more time in research before you spend hard earned money next time. After all, you do like the bag a lot right?

    It is painful to watch you derail like this from what you once used to be.

    Wow, a savage put-down worthy of the ages.

    Now I'm scratching my head asking what the hell this means.

    I don't follow, Sri. Perhaps you can send me a PM about what I used to be. I'm no different than I ever was... I don't like shady fucks to get away with things.

    From an Internet-friend, no less. I am both hurt and bedazzled.

    You are even better at managing Walmarts than he is at selling cell phones

    LOL, maybe I should enroll in Wal-mart's training class.

    FWIW, I agree with you that it was shitty that you were told you were buying something that was nicer than what you got. But, now that 4 months have passed, I would probably just consider it a learning experience and move on.

    I got some Lobbs a long time ago that were billed as "Buffalo" but it turns out they are really embossed calf. I like the shoes and want to keep them, but do you think I could get a partial refund anyway?

    As long as they have the Bills logo embossed on them, keep them. They'll be worth $$$ at the next Bruce Smith fundraiser.

    I don't either - get the full refund and get a bag you like better if you feel so strongly about the seller misleading you.

    Considering that you've had the bag for 4 months, might this not be a good time to go ahead and collect on that refund? I understand that you like the bag, but I'm sure the novelty has worn off somewhat. This could be your opportunity to upgrade to something better and/or more deer-skin-y. no?

    Once again, you have me confused with vox. It happens a lot, though I don't know why. I am not rich, not a WASP, not Polynesian, not married to a doctor, didn't go to Harvard, don't go to Paris for dinner 20x a year, and never get six suits in a single order. Among other differences.

    You both write pretty well.

    I planned and more or less plan on keeping the bag for many years.
