Found 29th Sep 2009
Hey all, im a bit of a serial taker backer, if something has the slightest of faults or issues I take it back. I think I am on my 6th iPhone 3GS lol.

Anyway, am I the only one who takes the p when it comes to taking things back to stores for refunds when im not happy?

Or does everyone try stuff then take it back etc etc. (not saying I do this, there has to be a fault first)

I'm the opposite, I bought House season 1-4 from lovefilm (when it was on offer a long time ago) but it took absolutely ages to arrive and when it turned up it was obviously 2nd hand or it had been abused in transit but I didn't complain because I really wanted to watch it >_>

I took a camera back to to the shop yesterday because it didnt work, I got £60 back. but if its nothing so major im so bothered

lol

I have worked in a returns department before, and I must admit, so many people used to bring things back simply because they wanted to try them out first.

I remember when someone bought a wireless router, they brought it back in a plastic bag with all the wires everywhere just cos they couldnt get it to work!!

I love taking stuff back, I once took a condom back after I used it because it had holes in it, the lady didnt believe me but I told her to blow into it and sure enough the air came out through the tiny holes LOL

i remember years and years ago i bought a fleetwood mac cd, "tango in the night"

i took it back to the music store, our price i think it was

guy asked me why i was bringing it back

i told him it was because the cd was crap


no problem - refund!!

:lol:

I complain about anything that isn't perfect

i am not really bad, but i will take things back if there is a fault, minor problems then I wouldn't be too bothered.

But to be honest if purchased an iphone 3gs i'd expect that to be problem free. The amount the phone cost, i'd expect nothing but perfection heh

I've not took something back to a shop or returned online for years.

Too right if something is crap/no good/faulty I will take it back.

Best one was a set of bluetooth headphones from Orange that stopped working after a couple of months, they said it had to be returned in original packaging (it was the stiff plastic stuff you have to cut to open not even a box so straight in the bin), kept refusing so I bought a deckchair from argos and sat by the doorway telling everyone who went in not to trust them etc after about 15 minutes the manager came out and gave me a refund, so |I then had to go to Argos to return the deck chair as it was uncomfy :whistling:

I take loads back to Argos
I treat it more like a library than a shop thanks to its 30 day return policy...

Lol. Little tip to anyone who wants to take back a laptop.

Take out the ram, and spark it on a gas cooker!!

Stops the whole thing working!
