1. You come straight home to make a deposit. Both cards are 100.00 in value. One card works and the other doesnt.

    I take them back and explain my situation to the guy who swiped my cards. He instructs me to get another card off the rack and wait for the manager to exchange them.

    The manager gets quite flustered and confused with the situation and ends up calling the support line to sort the issue out. In her confusion she takes the card that I got off the rack (that had not been activated) and the broken card and talks with a guy over the phone who states BOTH CARDS have a 100.00 balance.

    I tell the lady 3 times that the card she is trying to give me is off THE RACK and shouldn't have a balance and that I was going to use it for the exchange on the faulty card.

    She comes back and (still seemingly quite confused) states "This has 100.00 on it and this has 100.00 on it take these and if you have any problems call that number" and ushers me on.

    Long story short I now have 3 100.00 cards out of my 200.00 purchase.

    Do I keep and use the 3rd card (I think it got activated over the phone while she was talking with the representative) or do I take it back telling them they made a mistake and accidently gave me too many cards.

    Both of my original purchases have worked fine and I have yet to use the 3rd card.

    you told her that it was off of the rack and you were trying to exhange it

  12. Yep, she activated the 3rd card over the phone. Balance is 100.00

    I'm worried if I take it back that one of them will simply say "what an idiot." and slip it in their pocket.

  14. Deposit it, and take a shot at a $100 sng or buy in at .5/1 NL cash game, and play fearless...

    It could be a chance for you to take a shot and make a big cash.

  18. Id keep it personally. You're stealing from THE MAN, not a man. No one gets hurt here except a corporate entity. Most corporations blow many, many times more than that on plenty of other frivolous shit anyway.

I brought in my board to get them put on and what not and after they finished they gave me my receipt. Apparently they got me confused with some kid who had preordered the bindings and told me I was good to go. So in the spur of the moment I just walked out with a free pair of bindings. I got to thinking later that night and I didnt really want to be snowboarding on this tainted pair of bindings because I felt it was a broken leg or arm waiting to happen. I called the next day and told them what happened and they ended up giving me a discounted price for the trouble.

    The next weekend I ended up getting my biggest score at the time in poker so I felt all was right in the world. However I still managed to break my arm snowboarding so I dont know you be the judge.

  22. What gets me most about the situation is that when I'm at work (bartending/serving) and I'm in a hurry making change for a 100.00 bill and I accidently give someone an extra 20 or something, I have recieved it back exactly 0% of the time and end up having to eat it EVERY time.

  24. Buy $100 worth of condoms at Walgreen's obv. Makes you look like the responsible young man, and share them with your friends, and also that dude that forgot to pull out on his g/f last night.
