My wife bought me some slippers for Christmas.
Cost: $12.79, plus tax.
The pre-Christmas price was marked down from $36.
They were too big.
I didn’t return them in a timely fashion.
When I did this month, the slipper receipt didn’t match the one on the box.
So, the customer service lady processed the return from the identification on the box.
I ended up with a refund of $36, plus tax of $2.79.
“But that’s a lot more than we paid for them,” I observed.
She agreed, but told me with returns not having a receipt, the computer program forces her to refund the lowest price over the last three months.
So much for not trusting the employees on the floor.
