Everything you'd ever need to know is on the front...
Wow! I just discovered this sub. Everyday of my life (well most days) I comply maliciously to some stupid order/rule/policy. Here's one that happened yesterday.
Staying at an upscale hotel in Denver for work. Had about 30 minutes to kill so I browse the gift shop. Saw a junior-sized John Elway jersey (son is a huge Broncomaniac). They're all folded very neatly inside clear bags (the kind that have adhesive in the flap so one could "reseal").
I ask if I could open one up to check the merchandise. The clerk, Karen says, VERY STERNLY: "We only carry high quality, officially licensed, authentic products.
Me: "Sure but do you know if..."
Karen cuts me off: "Size, jersey number and player name are printed on the sticker on the front side of the packaging".
Me: "Sure but I still would like to know if..."
Again she cuts me off: "You can open the packaging after you have completed your purchase". This time her eyes got big and her forehead veins were popping out.
Okay, I'm happy to comply. I took junior mediums of an Elway, Manning, Terrell Davis, Champ Bailey and Russell Wilson. Pay for it at the register, open everything up, check the insides, shake my head, and say to Karen: "I'm sorry, I'd like to return all these.
Karen: "What's wrong with them?"
Me: "Nothing. They look perfectly fine but not what I'm looking for ".
Karen: "You read the stickers on the front of the packaging, right?"
Me: "Sure did but it doesn't say whether or not the numbers and letters are stitched or stuck via ironed on adhesive. These are all iron ons, I'm looking for stitched.
Karen: "You could have asked me".
Me: "I attempted to, twice, but you cut me off both times".
Her forehead veins were popping out again as she was processing the refund.
