Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Scammers and you; who is the winner?

My wife works at a retail store, and s guy returned an Xbox HD player because it 'doesn't work'. As they don't have any way to test if that piece of hardware worked or not, it was just written off. She brought it home instead of just tossing it in the rubbish, and lo and behold everything was still in the wrapper.

I now have a free HD-DVD player. Thanks guy too cheap to buy HD-DVD's!

    I can understand a store writing it off if they can't test it.

    However I can't believe they didn't even check to see if it had been opened.

    Are you positing that to win or lose is not a single time action, but a state of being?

    A lot of stores out there have terrible and senseless policies.

    No. Upon death, one enters nonexistence, initiating an eternal period of both win and loss.

    "It is the same for all. There is one fate for the righteous and for the wicked; for the good, for the clean and for the unclean; for the man who offers a sacrifice and for the one who does not sacrifice. As the good man is, so is the sinner; as the swearer is, so is the one who is afraid to swear."

I can't get to (City B) because I got robbed could you help me out with like twenty bucks to get another ticket to (City B) so I can work really hard as I have been planning all along and you will notice that I am indeed standing beside a bus station so my story is true.
