Regarding returns without receipts:
SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS, PEOPLE!!!!
Why is this so difficult? Why is it so much to ask for people to hold themselves accountable for their own purchases and finances?
Here is a little secret about me: I am EXTREMELY disorganized. I'll give you one guess as to what happens to my receipts. Yep, you guessed it! Ninety percent of the time, I lose them or throw them away. The other ten percent of the time, the purchase is for a big ticket item, In these cases, I have to FORCE myself into organizational mode and put the receipt and it's corresponding warranty away.
Now, having said this, do I whine and cry when I want to return something without the receipt? NO. Why? Because I hold myself accountable for my own actions. I could choose to be more organized and save them. I don't, and I have to live with the consequences.
How is it a retailers fault when a person doesn't follow the POSTED rules of returns? Every other letter on PFB seems to be someone WHINING and CARRYING ON because the big-bad retailer wouldn't break the rules for them.
I just don't get it. And it makes me very, very frustrated.
