    So, have you ever went out to eat, or bought something that you didn't like anymore? So, you go back to the store and demand a refund? I know when one of my head phones broke that I got from CVS before, I returned them and got a new pair. They said if you want a refund, we can give you that. Because when you still have your receipt its easier to return things.

    So, anyways, have you ever had to demand a refund? What happened that made you ask for one?

    I never personally have done this, but as I was growing up my dad was the kind of guy that would get a refund for ANYTHING. It was actually pretty ridiculous. He'd call a restaurant if they forgot onions on his sandwich or something and demand a free meal.

    Since we have a big family, places tend to screw up our order. And in regards to fast food, if they make your order wrong, they give you the next order for free.


    What made you puke though?

    I asked for refunds when I got clothes bought for me by family members like at Christmas, because the clothes didn't fit, but I never asked for a refund when I bought food lol.

    Since I'm allergic to just about everything, we have to buy things carefully. And sometimes that means we buy things that are kind of expensive.
    Well, a type of bread I can eat is like $6 a loaf, and that's pretty expensive, at least for us.
    For a while, we were buying it constantly with no problem and then all the sudden, we would get the bread and two days later more than half the loaf would be completely molded.
    The first time it happened, we kind of thought maybe it was somehow our fault. But the second time, we went in and demanded a new loaf of bread. Only to have that loaf of bread mold two days later too.
    So basically, we just stopped buying it =/ which is really frustrating because that's the cheapest bread I can find that I can eat. OTL

    I also demanded a refund on a 'non-stick skillet' when it didn't even work the first time I used it, and washing it with a /wash cloth/ scratched it. =/

    I have done it with a computer game I bought, opened the box one disc was missing out of six and they were all scratched. Spent $120 on this game and wasn't about to just go silent.

    I have come close or at times wished I did. :/ I'm very food picky and when food isn't perfect I get ticked. (especially when I'm paying for it)

    You might want to consider making your own bread if you have specific dietary requirements but limited commercial options. If you're gluten-free or something like that I know you can get gluten-free flour, and anything you make yourself is bound to be cheaper. Or if it's the preservative you're allergic to then just by making it yourself will mean you'll be able to skip all that.

    Alternatively, if the bread is going mouldy quickly because of a lack of preservatives (and not because it was too old when it was purchased) then you could try keeping part of it in the freezer and defrosting it as needed. Two days is quick though, even for home-made bread, so I'm not sure why it would do that.

    Thanks for the post!
    Sadly, I don't have the time to hand make bread. I'd love to; but I just don't have the time.
    I'm actually allergic to a lot of different things. Potatoes, corn, wheat, semolina, among others. It's spelt I can have. Not really sure why, but it doesn't bother me.
    I also don't have the means to purchase a nice bread cooker, and believe me... I've tried making it in a baking vessel, it doesn't come out fantastic.

    Also, the bread molds faster the more moist you get it. Which is why it molds so fast; they store it in the freezer.

    I read some disgusting shit the other day on another forum. This guy posted and said he went to Dennys, so when he went outside, he squished a bug, went back in, ordered food, and put the bug in his food. So Dennys gave him the meal for free. Like, wtf? Would anyone here to do this? I know if I saw a bug in my food, I'd freak out.
    @EvolutionEvolution I remember when I used to play the Madden football games for the Xbox 360, they would be times where the game would freeze on me, so I returned it, and it did the same thing. I eventually got a copy that didn't do that though.

    Ya, I don't buy video games that often anymore because of that. I let others get it for me.

    Ya, same here. I really enjoy the game "Def Jam: The Icon" my girl got me for Christmas. I'm close to beating it but I got tired of getting my ass wooped and not winning - since I'm high up in the game. I haven't built up the confidence to go back at it yet.

    Back when the original Xbox was still around their were apparently two types of disks, I'm pretty sure the guy at the local store called them "Gold" and "Silver" (not really too sure) and there were quite a few times where I'd buy a pre-owned game and have compatibility issues with it.
