Here’s a pretty sad story of some guy who saved up for a year to buy a new TV. The TV he wanted was only available online, so that’s how he purchased it. But after waiting three weeks for the TV to arrive, he was in for quite a surprise. During shipping, the screen had cracked, and this guy had no way of returning it to the seller.
What can you do in a situation like this? Should you sell the TV at a loss to someone who’ll break it down for parts? Do you save up for another year and buy a new TV? Or do you just go fetal and cry?
