we do....and it sucks!!
Here is my story.....
I got an appliance for Christmas, and it didn't work properly, so I took it back to WalMart to exchange it for another one, and because I and the gifter did not have the sales receipt, I was told that I would have to re-pay the taxes!!!
What???? WHY??? When I am doing an even exchange??
The stupid answer that I got was that in the state of Massachusetts, if you don't have your receipt, even if you are doing an even exchange, you have to pay the taxes again??? WTF??
I tried to explain that their item was defective and that I only wanted another one, and it didn't matter....so I asked to speak to a manager, who said the same thing.... it is a state law, and it is not only Walmart that has to uphold this, it is every other store too.
Now, I don't know about you, but I have never heard of something so preposterous in my life!!! That leaves the consumer paying taxes again on a defective item, just because I didn't have a receipt?? Still doesn't make sense to me??
So I had to repay the taxes, and the next day, I asked the girls at work if they had heard of this, and a few of them had, and had to pay the taxes again too! The others were lucky and hadn't had to return anything!
Now, my question is this.....why do I not have to pay the taxes again "if" I have a receipt?? But I do have to pay them again if I don't?????? What does not having a receipt have to do with a defective item, and an even exchange???
I'm dying to hear them!!
Till Next Time,
