I guess I should say when it's your job you get used to it quick. The worst was a Home Depot rerun where we had bought about a hundred different switches and hardware pieces for a set that was to look like a house mid-renovation. I bought ivory, white, and black outlets, covers, switch plates, etc. the receipt was about a yard long. I returned 80% of it and the girl was SO patient and nice. I did the online survey and gave her excellent praise afterwards.


Return Shame: You Either Have It or You Don't

I am a professional prop shopper for a theater. I always make sure to get the policy on returns before I purchase, and in cases where they do not allow returns I make sure the item is photographed and measured and sent for approval before being purchased. This sometimes can bite me in the behind if the designer/director take too long to respond and it sells, but if we go ahead with an un returnable item we can get stuck with it. Many times an item gets "on stage" and it's too small too big or the lighting turns it a funny color. We don't remove tags or alter an item until it's approved but even then minds can get changed. I also sometimes need to buy multiples of the same item (glassware particularly) in case of breakage and then return what we don't use.
