is that new? I don't think i have encountered that before. in the past they have even let me keep shit after I click 'return' and refund me anyway. prob because restocking is too much of a hassle. 96.69% of my purchases are through them at this point. have you reached the 96-69 threshold?

Nah, TBH I don't buy from them very often.

Only from non-Prime sellers though right?... if the prime icon isn't next to the seller I try to avoid them... although my wife always manages to need something that doesn't have a prime seller...

Nope, even Prime.

Really? I just had to send back some shoes I ordered, and they gave me a shipping label to print. I wonder if it depends on the items?

It does. I'm not sure what the criteria is, though.

Jeff Bezos didn't get 100 billion dollars by paying for you to send back your shit.

Car commercials that try to act like getting a car as a Xmas gift is no big deal.

I hate it when people use "rock and roll" as a replacement for any verb similar to "go". Twice yesterday, I heard someone in a group say, "Let's rock and roll". Once to get on a train when the doors opened, and once to get to the security line after dropping off their luggage at airport check in. Neither of those situations warrant the use of "rock and roll".

Spoiler: show
I know, it's a long walk for that joke.

Live nativity scenes with llamas. I get they are supposed to be stand ins for camels but they really don't look like camels.
