Stupid Law in Massachusetts!

TAXACHUSETTS IMAGEI don't know if you have this law in your state, but here in Massachusetts,
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???

Any ideas???
I'm dying to hear them!!

or their special talents or successes.

But what about yours?

You have all that too...and more!

Pay yourself one too!!
You deserve it!!!

Something to Ponder...

Here is a little story that will make you think......

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven.

Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.
We should all be more kind, more patient and more loving.
