For research purposes!

Imagine you have bought something for a fairly low price point online (let's say under £15 / €18 / $20) and you are dissatisfied with the purchase. How would a perfect return flow work when interacting with that company for a refund? Do you expect them to pay for the return despite the low price point, or do you expect to pay for that yourself, or perhaps you expect that the item does not need returning at all? What happens after returning it? Tell me all!

If the error was with the product, say it was faulty on arrival, or not entirely as sold. I'd expect the company to pay for the cost of returning it, as it is their own error.

If the item is fine, i just changed my mind or was unmoved when i saw it, for that price, I'd probably just put it to one side and forget about it, or maybe try to flip it online, usually on eBay or Gumtree.

Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately - my wife has been busy giving birth to another (hopefully) future TTD player! :D

Yay for your wife, for your future TTD player, and for you as well!

Congratulations!
We've recently added to our family too, a 2nd daughter, she'll be 4 months old on Monday. Interestingly, it's been about 4 months since I had a good nights sleep or had any time for anything!

I'm a bit late to the party here, but Congrats Owen!


In other news, although I'm sure I can't be the only one to have noticed this, the forums seem to have been eerily quiet in the off-topic and transport sections as of late. Fortunately the various game-related sections have been plodding along fairly nicely still, although again, this seems somewhat quieter than what I remember from a few years ago.

I always find myself wondering what happened to the "old guys" if you will, the one's who used to post relatively consistently and who's accounts now lay dormant. I know real-life happened, but what exactly :lol:

Maybe we need another Alan Fry-esque Character, that was nearly 7 years ago now!

Personally, I work full time with the railway, that means that I don't have much desire to spend my free time mismanaging my own railway on my PC.

7 Years, jesus time flies. At least the guy managed to get his name into the history of TT-F, given we still remember him!

So much jealous, I've given up trying to get jobs in the industry now. I figured after like 10 years of trying, it just isn't happening.

Don't be too jealous, I ended up in a meeting with JamieLei today, the first of many probably...

I still check the forums regularly but don't post as much anymore.

Real-life happened quite strongly to me, in a very positive way. For almost 2 years I'm in a relation with the nicest lady I ever met :), after moving in with her almost a year ago I officially sold my own house with a healthy profit only yesterday and in the second half of september we may call ourselves mom & dad. I still work in the construction industry but at a different company with plenty of oppurtunities for the future.

I just bought a new computer for 13,000 SEK, which is roughly £1070, $1400 or €1300. I'm a little bit uncomfortable by this, but then again I haven't had a brand spanking new computer ever in my life. I've always had to make do with mediocre leftovers and second hand items. I hope I can pick it up today, it is in my local store but not finished preparing it yet.

@ Hyro: Happy to hear life has hit you in such a way! :)

A mini Hyro sounds almost as bad as a mini Orudge ;)

They'll never be a mini-me, the nature of biology forbids it ;__;

Swap regularly with sometimes. Yet I technically never left. Old promise I made. :P

The olden days were a good time. Lots of activity. TT-Forums related meme's, meet ups in Rail Museums, broken English on my end, Astathica's circumvention of the language filter in the 'What are you listening to @ the moment' music thread. And of course... Owen's mighty fascination with Melissa Joan Hart.

It was a simpler time. :mrgreen:
