FASHION Flash Mob.

A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief period of time, then quickly disperse.
– Wikipedia

Today, at the Toronto Life Square at Yonge & Dundas, I participated in one of the coolest things ever. There was a FASHION Flash Mob put together by the people at FASHION Magazine as part of the LuminaTO: Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity. It was seriously something really awesome to see and be a part of. Stay tuned for photos and videos that will be posted on their website:

Best Buy, Worst Policy!

I don't normally shop at Best Buy.. but I know a lot of friends that do. So, I'm posting this for them and for everyone else who happens to shop there. Working in retail, I can tell you that this is the most absurd thing I have ever heard of. It's poor practice and doesn't make for good business. Anyways, I just wanted you to be aware. Ciao. *mUaH*.xoxox.

Best Buy has some bad policies....

Normally, I would not share this with others, however, since this could happen to you or your friends , I decided to share it. If you purchase something from other stores and you return the item with the receipt, they will give you your money back if you paid cash, or credit your account if paid by plastic.

Well, I purchased a GPS for my car, a Tom Tom XL.S from 'Best Buy'. They have a policy that it must be returned within 14 days for a refund!

So after 4 days I returned it in the original box with all the items in the box, with paper work and cords all wrapped in the plastic. Just as I received it, including the receipt.

I explained to the lady at the return desk I did not† like the way it could not find store names. The lady at the refund desk said, there is a 15% restock fee, for items returned. I said no one told me that. I said how much would that be. She said it goes by the price of the item. It will be $45.00 Dollars for you. I said, all your going to do is walk over and place it back on the shelf then charge me $45.00 of my money for restocking?

She said that's the store policy. I said if more people were aware of it they would not buy anything here! If I bought a $2000.00 computer or TV and returned it I would be charged $300.00 dollars restock fee? She said yes, 15%.

I said OK, just give me my money minus the restock fee.

She said, since the item is over $200.00 dollars, she can't give me my money back!!!

Corporate has to and they will mail you a check in 7 to ten days.!! I said 'WHAT?!'

It's my money!! I paid in cash! I want to buy a different brand..Now I have to wait 7 to 10 days. She said well, our policy is on the back of your receipt.

I said, do you read the front or back of your receipt? She said well, the front! I said so do I, I want to talk to the Manager!.

So the manager comes over, I explained everything to him, and he said, well, sir they should of told you about the policy when you got the item.

I said, No one, has ever told me about the check refund or restock fee, whenever I bought items from computers to TVs from Best Buy.

The only thing they ever discussed was the worthless extended warranty program. He said Well, I can give you corporate phone number.

I called corporate. The guy said, well, I'm not supposed to do this but I can give you a 45.00 dollar gift card and you can use it at Best Buy. I told him if I bought something and returned it, you would charge me a restock fee on the item and then send me a check for the remaining 3 dollars.

You can keep your gift card, I'm never shopping in Best Buy ever again, and if I would of been smart, I would of charged the whole thing on my credit card! Then I would of canceled the transaction.

I would of gotten all my money back including your stupid fees! He didn't say a word!

I informed him that I was going to e-mail my friends and give them a heads up on this stores policy, as they don't tell you about all the little caveats.

So please pass this on. It may save your friends from having a bad experience of shopping at Best Buy

It's true! read it for yourself!!

Days Off.

So, yesterday was my first official day off. I won't go back to work for another two weeks. I'm writing up a to do list of so much crap i need to get done. Tearing apart and cleaning this office is one of them which would probably take a week in itself. It's the largest task. I won't even take a photo for you because I'll terrify you with this mess and clutter in here. Honest. hahaha :)

In other news, I'm obsessed with the Wii fit. It's so much fun. I've been doing mostly the Yoga & Strength training on it for the past few days. It's really fun and great for you! I love you Nintendo!! hehe : )) *heart*

I have nothing much to say except.. SAVE THIS DATE: Saturday, September 13th, 2008. Mark it and save it. w00t w00t. I'm off to enjoy my time off. *mUaH*

P.S. I can't post the video for this cuz embedding is disabled so I'll have to just put the link to a video for today's post. ciao ciao .xoxox.


P.P.S. Don't forget to tune into yer tv's tonight. Might be the final game where Detroit wins the cup. Or maybe not... we'll see :P
