    All those so called sympathetic price reductions, discounts and forbearances were nice gestures during the first wave of the pandemic but I’ve noticed that Corp America is back with price gauging attempts with a vengeance!

    Be mindful of your insurance premiums my CPK friends and shop around.

    I made a mistake of buying fresh croissants for Mom yesterday and then leaving the box on the kitchen center isle. I fell sleep on the couch with the dog by my side and then the darn scent of the pastry woke me up way too early. I’m being brave and fighting the urge but I don’t know how much more fight is left in me :D

    My low carb journey has been getting tested recently:). I've been making lots of scones for the kids. I have clotted cream and jam. I'm struggling

    Look, if RONA wishes to severely restrict my airways to choke me off, why not just croak myself by scoffing my own face instead?

    Fudge you RONA! #winning

    Watch the opening scenes of the new Perry Mason series on HBO. Some serious food debauchery going on which made me think of your post :p

    I posted up a "used, carried and sharpened" Spyderco Domino for sale here a few weeks ago and sold it for my asking price. The knife had been used quite a bit for cutting cardboard and was functionally perfect if not cosmetically. I got a demand from the buyer a few days ago for a full refund because "the blade was hitting the frame and 2 of the clip screws were broken". Needless to say this is not how I sent the knife to him. He had told me that he was planning on changing the scale out when he got it and I believe that he jacked it up while trying to work on it. I hate people that are so dishonest.

    Derrel, further bad news ala adding insults to injury when you get your knife back and issue the refund:

    PayPal will charge you that 2.9% + .30 transaction fee irrespective of your full refund to your buyer* (if buyer in the U.S, more if international). PP has abandoned crediting back their transaction fees and have put the onus on the seller. I posted something to this effect in the G/B/U section a while ago but I got the cold shoulder reception from some posters because they were of the opinion that returns do not happen that often on BF.com. Although my beef was more with eBay related sales, unfortunately anyone who accepts PP and then their transaction goes south, will suffer from this shady PP policy.

    * as an example, if your knife was $200 and PP had charged you ~$6 PP fees for G&S, that return / refund will cost you your netted amount plus an additional $6 outta your pocket which they will grab either from your bank account or CC on file

    Matt I'm so disgusted by the whole thing that I don't ever want to do business with anyone outside of the CPK sub forum again.
    Who does that BS?

    Before doing the return I would post up the situation in a GBU thread. Make the buyer admit to attempting to disassemble the knife. Once that is clear, the members on BF will tell him that he owned the knife as soon as he attempted to modify - and to pound sand.

    I
    I know a girl named Eden who married a guy with the last name Cox. She refused to adopt his last name. He was cool with it. They had trouble explaining it to his parents. They tried explaining it to her future in laws without stating explicitly what the problem was - just saying it wouldn’t sound right. His father didn’t understand and was slightly offended she wouldn’t take the family name.
    This is not a joke - they live just down the street from me. When she told me this story I was intoxicated and could not stop laughing hysterically - with tears and everything.
