- A Case of Buyer's Remorse
Well, here's a story...
The other day I decided I wanted new shoes. Now, I am a bit OCD, so I wanted to make sure and get the perfect pair of shoes. I am also really thrifty, so I went to WalMart and looked in their shoes section. I found a pair of awesome Earth sandals. Now, years ago, I used to wear flipflops everyday. Then I found that I was spending quite a bit on pants, because, given a few weeks, flipflops really wear on pants. So, I stopped.
These sandals were super duper comfy, and I found they really didn't drag the ground or anything. I was excited, so I purchased them...not ten minutes after I got home, I started regretting it. I opted to return them after stressing for a day about it, and got a pair of shoes at Best Buy. Not ten minutes after purchasing them, the same thing... I returned both the sandals and the pair of shoes I bought from Best Buy, went to WalMart and bought those cheap $12 shoes you find there....couldn't be happier!
