Dumbass. First you actually buy the products. Then you go back with the receipt, pick up the same products off of store shelves and return those with your receipt to get your money back. Everyone knows that.

Happens every day at the LCBO, folks. Every day. That's our policy. If it's on our product list, you can return it without a receipt for store credit.

It stands for Liquor Control Board of Ontario and they run the Beer Stores in Windsor which is the only place you can get booze for your hotel party (except the duty-free but you're not supposed to take that back inside Canada)

i know what the Licbo is lol proud Ontarian. i just can't bring myself to actually call it the LCBO.

In other news, an unidentified man sipped a few gulps of Mountain Dew from his 32oz beverage and filled it up to the rim again before adding the lid to his fountain drink at the local 7-11. If you see something, say something!

Racism on display:

FTFA: Adams may be in the company of an unknown White female. They were known to be operating a black Dodge Ram pickup truck with a New Jersey registration plate displayed.

"White" is capitalized. "Black" is not. And what's with capitalizing "New Jersey". That also offends me.

Can anyone explain to me what the thrill of TotalFark is?

The TorD threads where strange women showed their boobies? Because there was no where else on the internet to get that for less than $5?

If you bring back items (shoplift from the store) you did not buy and get a store credit and then get items you want OK, maybe save some cash.   But how do you get any cash?  Possibly sell the store credit to the amigos waiting to do day labor in the parking lot?

Seems like a lot of work for low reward

It's over four times better than that.

I've always felt farking with your pants on was akin to leaving the foil over the tater-tots; things get soggy.

Some years back I sat on a jury that convicted some chick of doing this. They finally caught her by moving the returns department outside of the store and posting a greeter at the front door. And yeah, her husband was in on it, too.

This is a daily occurance at Home Depot.  Not sure how it made the news (or Fark).

In other news, people suck. More at 11.

the curtains were lifted for one whole day after UK lost the Nat'l Championship.  Drew opened up TF to everyone.  I peeked in for a few hours and saw a ghost town.  threads with no comments, 3 different tabs of what felt like the same articles just in a different order, ... BUT i had access to the Boobies threads ... which were fairly boring when all sorts of porn is free everywhere on the internet.  so yeah, i'll keep my $5.

support of a website you enjoy?

Half the thrill seemed to be what FarkUs is. Just a $5 circle jerk so you and the other $5 initiates can abuse the submission queue and talk about tv or what ever gets your jollies, and liters don't get to see any of it. I know i spent my one month of Ultafark gabbing in the Deadliest Catch threads. Kinda like the Cosmos and GoT threads. But every day about random crap.Since it gets stuck in TF land, it's not abuse, i guess. But that was almost 4 years ago. Alot less EIP now-a-days.

According to investigators, Don Adams presented numerous items which were set aside for sale to the customer service desk in hopes of convincing them he actually purchased the items and needed to return them without a receipt.

Missed it by *that* much.

boobies.fark.com that doesn't work anymore?  Boobies used to be on main page fark but people complained so they moved it to their own tab that you have to know the URL to get to.  At work so i can't see if it still works or not.

From the couple of times I have been TotalFarkified, I actually tended to not use it much.  The main page with ALL THOSE stories, takes forever to load.  And there is very little discussion in the threads.  So you really don't have much incentive to comment on anything since it will likely get washed away in the flood of other threads that no one gives a shiat about.

But whatever...  To each their own.  And Drew and the rest of the team should be proud of what this site is, whether you wanna pay $5 for the full bit or not.
