If you don’t need your Christmas tree after Dec. 25, you might be able to get a full refund.

A woman in Santa Clara, California was spotted returning a Christmas tree to Costco on Jan. 4. She returned the tree “because it [was] dead,” a shopper waiting in line behind her said according to The Sun, and got her money back.

“I can’t make this stuff up,” Scott Bentley, who took a photo in the refund line, wrote on Facebook.

Costco gave the woman her refund after questioning her, verifying the purchase on her Costco account and shaming her “to a small degree,” the other shopper said.

The refund attempt riled up people online who couldn’t believe someone would try to return their Christmas tree well into the new year.

“People like this are miserable. Seriously, how cheap can you be?” one commenter said.

But Costco — like Nordstrom and REI — is famous for its lenient return policy. The store will take back almost anything at nearly any time.

“Sister works for Costco, can confirm. People do this all the time. They will even demand a refund without bringing back the tree,” one commenter said.

On one Reddit thread, Costco employees recounted the weirdest returns they’d seen. Dead plants, old mattresses, empty wine bottles and personal photos have all been exchanged for refunds.
Crackheads returning dead Christmas trees for $30. If I ever get to the point just shoot me. I'd be absolutely mortified to do something this low.

Believe me, it's not just crackheads that pull that shite, used to work the service desk.at a Toys R Us, at one point they were taking back stuff from other stores that we also carried as well as returned toy grade R/Cs for being too slow and slot car sets because cars "wouldn't stay on the track"

It's now considered "good customer service" to return pretty much anything that comes in the door, if it was bought there or not. Pissed me off to no end when we did that at Toys R Us.

Nothing like paying an extra $300-500 a month so you can have someone tell you how you can use your yard.
Just recently, the HOA sent my landlord a fine because our trash cans were ON our back deck. Apparently it's against the rules to have your trashcan there, it HAS to be on the mandatory stone slab next to the gate. I can't make this up.

This is what drives me nuts about "the customer is always right." In the last 20-30 years, people are willing to push that maxim to new levels of absurdity. I'm surprised people haven't tried to walk out of a store without paying and saying "But... I'm the customer and I'm always right!"

I went to high school right next to that development back in the early 90's. It's all 4-plexes that were/are full of welfare and druggies. from what i've heard, they tried to sell off the units as "condos" to clean it up and form the HOA to keep it that way. the problem is that there are still dirtbags there, and some of them have been letting people live in the garages. Instead of actually doing something about it, apparently the HOA decided to come up with this stupid rule

You have to wonder how many of those types of pics are photoshop jobs, but they still have the desired effect.

Another example of "can't make this stuff up"...

TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A man was shot at after he said he flipped off another driver on the highway in Travis County, deputies say. Meanwhile, that suspect driver told them he believed he was allowed to fire a “warning shot.”

The victim was driving east on Farm to Market Road 2244 (Bee Caves Road) just before 5 p.m. on Jan. 4 when he got into the left hand turn lane onto Capital of Texas Highway, according to an arrest affidavit. A red car driving next to him turned left in front of him and almost hit him, so the victim “gave the driver the ‘finger’ and sped away onto the on-ramp.”
The other car followed on his right side, and then the victim saw the driver — who deputies later identified as 35-year-old Ernesto Molinary-Garcia — pull out a gun, according to the affidavit. The victim “heard a pop sound and felt something hit his vehicle as he ducked. He quickly drove away, stating he felt fear for his life.” He called 911 as the other car followed him, but managed to pull off into a shopping area.

Deputies followed the suspect car and saw one of the occupants throw marijuana out the window. They eventually pulled the car over and questioned the three people inside. Molinary-Garcia told officials he had two handguns in the car, and they searched it to find both. He admitted to shooting his .40 caliber Glock 23 in the direction of the other car, according to the affidavit.

“Ernesto [Molinary-Garcia] stated that he did so because he was under the belief that he was allowed, as a Licensed Handgun Carrier, to shoot a ‘warning shot,'” the affidavit stated. “Ernesto claimed that [the victim] was purposefully merging into his lane while on the on-ramp after the near-collision incident.”

Molinary-Garcia faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is a second-degree felony. Records show he bonded out of jail. Bond was set at $60,000.

So, lets make a MFG change there entire formula to basically clear liquid because you are a dumbass parent who can't put the Laundry detergent on a top shelf out of reach of your offspring or in a locked cupboard. I bet they have child locks on the knife drawer or the under sink though. Yes it looks like candy so be smarter than the person who doesn't know better or the older person who can't remember to know better. F-in people irritate me sometimes.

Ha! I used to do graphic design when managing a print shop and that would've been a great t-shirt! Living in Texas most my life, I've witnessed a great deal of craziness but even to this day I'll see or hear about something that leaves me speechless. Living on Galveston Island for over a decade didn't help any lol. Yea man, same here... gave up my sanity long ago!

EDIT> Hope some people move this page along quickly... 4x I've had to look at that mess!
