Happy Naked Gingerday everyone!

Oooo, I've just got to get me one of these. That way I could entreat upon him to go into town, go into that Adidas selling fucking shop and MAKE them exchange the sneakers before the 29th.
I mean have you ever heard the like?
'We don't do exchange policies before the 29th'. some fat faced harpy informed me yesterday after I had WALKED (damn you extra Christmas kilos) into town to exchange the Paramour's Christmas runners for a larger size.
'You what?' I said, dripping all over her counter. 'Look I don't want any money, I just need the exact same shoe but in a larger size.'
'Not before Saturday.' Said she sniffily. 'It's on your receipt.'
And by the Devil's smegma so it was.
What a stupid fucking policy. I"m not even sure it's legal to refuse to exchange and item like that.
If I had a naked ginger at my disposal She would SURELY have changed them.

Anyhoo, I hope every one's hanging in there, enjoying the holidays and what not. My liver and I are so looking forward to January 1st, pity it didn't fall on a Monday, that would have been ace, but no matter.

Doooooo youuuuuuuuuuuur ballls hang low? can you tie them in a knot? can you tie them in a bow?

That is a dumb policy. I think once they have it on your receipt that they are not stepping on your statutory rights. You'd think she woulda just given you a break though... bitch.
Bite her next time.

It was bloody annoying but the place was stuffed and I saw little point in throwing a strop. I am irked though.

I cannot recall seeing a more unappetizing package. It's like his balls are swallowing his peen.

I've never heard of a time limit to begin taking returns, FMC. That bites.
I guess it could be worse and they could have written no returns at all.

They wouldn't get away with that one over here Medbh. I'm not even sure what she pulled yesterday was legal, but sure fuck it, tomorrow will have to do, I'm too bloated from food and drink to work myself up into a full lather.

On to Danny, he's quite the fire crotch is he not? I always wonder, surely his fondness for being naked in public belies the package. Or maybe he genuinely does not give a monkey's uncle.

That guy is 40 shades of gross. He's too drunk to realize it.

Not being a connoisseur of odd crotches I can't tell if that's a 1995 Chateau Margeaux or a 2007 Irn Bru.

Champion con artists thems are. They do indeed have to exchange them if I were you I would get my ass in there early in the morning, give monsieur manager a piece of your mind, get all the dollars you paid back and buy the same shoes in another shop in the sales. If you can’t beat them join them!

Medbh, he most certainly is drunk, regularly, publicly and most importantly, nakedly.
Sam, I believe we may be looking at a genuine hybrid here. Exciting stirring stuff.
Nonny, I will be on to consumer affairs on Monday to see what is the situation
Jackson Jackson Jackson, I'm so gonna delete you.

That Johnson doesn't ring true.
It's too small for the sac, cold day in Chicago or not.

If I had a shop I wouldn't let anyone bring stuff back.
Women are hellish for that.
"ooo, I've changed me mingd"
"tough shit, sistah"

Just found your blog, sorry if this thread is stale. Re the Adidas problem - I don't think they are obliged to change them!!

This is the law on it - Sale of Goods Act, 1980:

14.—(1) Subject to the provisions of this Act and of any statute in that behalf, there is no implied condition or warranty as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of goods supplied under a contract of sale.

(2) Where the seller sells goods in the course of a business there is an implied condition that the goods supplied under the contract are of merchantable quality, except that there is no such condition—

( a ) as regards defects specifically drawn to the buyer's attention before the contract is made, or

( b ) if the buyer examines the goods before the contract is made, as regards defects which that examination ought to have revealed.

(3) Goods are of merchantable quality if they are as fit for the purpose or purposes for which goods of that kind are commonly bought and as durable as it is reasonable to expect having regard to any description applied to them, the price (if relevant) and all the other relevant circumstances, and any reference in this Act to unmerchantable goods shall be construed accordingly.

So, if you bought the wrong size, that's your mistake, not theirs unless the box was mis-labelled or something, and you can't claim that they were not of merchantable quality.
HOWEVER - their reliance on something printed on the receipt is pure bull excrement - by the time you get a receipt your contract is made in law - offer/acceptance/consideration-has-passed, so adding on a contractual term t that stage is wrong in law.

Hope you got on ok with the issue anyway.
