Used Goods

353/365

not much happened today other than i bought what i thought was the perfect scale. i’ll share my rant from another site:

just bought a new scale from kmart. it calculates body fat, body weight, water weight and body muscle. there’s just ONE problem. IT’S USED.

it has scratches on the scale, chipped paint, the pads on the bottom don’t even stick and there’s enough hair on the pads to make a small braid for a bald-headed doll.

now do i take it back to k-mart and fling it to the customer service counter from the entrance like an olympic disc thrower; or do i walk in and calmly say i would like to return the scale because the hair on it doesn’t really go with my hair color and i have this thing about matching.

the box was torn and re-taped, but i didn’t think it was used.

    Bwhahahahahahahaha….that visual had me in hysterics!

    OMG, I can’t believe they sold this thing to you USED?!? I mean didn’t they realize someone would notice the chipped paint, non-stick pads, and HAIR?? GROSS.

    “or do i walk in and calmly say i would like to return the scale because the hair on it doesn’t really go with my hair color and i have this thing about matching.”

    Yeah, that’s what I would do. And then, FLING it to the customer service counter like an olympic disc thrower.

    HA!

      it’s wrong ron, so wrong. and of course this is the scale i want at the price i bought it at and they only had one left. can’t win for losing. i found one on ebay for less money and it does the same thing, but it will take dayssss to get here. i’m impatient and i want it now…but will probably end up waiting for the one that cost less money, you know.

      i feel like flinging something. i have a lot of energy and could smash it into a billion little pieces; but so many would be disappointed to see me on the news in handcuffs. i’ll go with rational for $2,000.

      thank you and have a nice day.

  2. Hey, if you smashed it into a billion pieces you could call that your cardio workout. I bet you could burn at least 500 calories.

    … (T)here’s enough hair on the pads to make a small braid for a bald-headed doll.

      i took the nasty scale back, told the woman my story and she put a defective sticker on it. i have photos. i’m contemplating whether or not to write a letter and ask for something free, like a store card for 25$ for my troubles.

      i’ve done enough cardio, let’s file the smashing under strength training, shall we? i would like to see it all smashed up though.

      i exaggerate not, there was enough hair to make a small braid.

Speak on it!
