So I'm pretty sure I win the award for biggest retard today.
I had a pair of shoes from Zumiez that I had for about a week that I only wore once, didn't like them anymore (Had to make room for some new Nike's) but the problem was they were a little worn and their Return Policy is they must be in their original condition.
And being the absolute moron that I am, I had to clean them up. Soap and water didn't cut it on the bottom of the sole, since it was dirty, tried Comet and Clorox, no luck. The shoes were soaked and tried to dry them off with napkins.
Anyway I thought I'd take a shot at returning the shoes. Went back to the store and the guy asked why I dont like the shoes anymore, I said "I didn't like it"
So I was hoping he wouldn't take the shoes out of the box, and lo he did. Noticed I wore them on the bottom of the sole and realized they were wet. Then he took a wiff and he smelled the Clorox. He looks up and says "Dude you so wore these and I smell clorox"
I did my best "I have no idea what you are talking about" face and he said "You know I shouldn't be doing this but I'll let you exchange it for something else the similar price, these shoes cant be sold again"
So I got two new shoes and got 66 bucks back.
When the Asst Mgr found out he said "Yo man that is so f***ed up that you can take these back and get some money back, you need to buy two shirts cause we did you a big favor." Guy was a pot head and totally forgot what he just said when the receipt was handed back to me.
Won't show my face in that store again.
Why don't I feel bad? It was his decision to return them, it's amazing what kind of murderous things one can get away with, especially at places like Sam's Club.
