In effect you are saying that pulling shtick is OK as long as you know that nobody else is doing it, which I think is quite dumb.
That is putting it mildly.  >:( >:(
I'm talking people being dishonest with me, and (trying) to rob me.

the proportion I've had of the latter surpassed by far any other group or people I've dealt with.

i unfortunatLY got to hear that so,many people have the same issues.....

I don't know who you are hanging out with?!?

Not really. When people take advantage of free bonuses (which are given away willingly, to entice customers) that's fine. Those are "deals".
Maybe not?
Maybe we should all just make sure to spend at least $1000 in overpriced stuff on Black Friday to make sure they made money off the Doorbuster?  ::) ::)
But when I hear stories of how people buy an air conditioner for the summer, and then return it when the summer is over (just before 90 days are up), jokingly referring to Walmart as their "gemach", that makes me cringe. And when Walmart gives me the third degree when trying to make a legitimate return, because "sorry for the hassle, sir, but people in this area have been abusing our return policy" (true story!), that downright pisses me off.
Somehow when they willingly make a return policy "to entice customers"
Who buy things they may not want or need cuz what WTH it returnable (90% of which doesn't make it back to the store")
Then "One must not take advantage of big business's return policies"
Explain the difference ??? ??? ???
or better yet Shut Up!  >:( >:( >:( >:(
airline price mistakes (which the DOT enforces, because the onus is on the airline to triple-check before publishing), that's fine. Those are "deals".
because the DOT enforces it?
What does that change?
And do you think Walmart/Costco don't have lawyers go over their return policies with a fine tooth comb?
They at least budget for a small percentage of seasonal return. Airlines do not plan for mistakes!
that downright pisses me off.

And let's not forgot how Amex offer matching got killed in no small part by the wise guys who took out full-page color ads offering $1600 for signing up for a Plat, while shamelessly ripping off Dan's instructions for getting matched to 100k, word-for-word, with no credit or compensation to him whatsoever...
Now its about Dan's Kovod?!?
Dan's biggest following is in Lakewood and he knows it!
I think you are a "Downright P.O."

I don't care if Mimi is a man, woman or an it, this whole villification of Lakewood thing is getting out of hand.

Creating offensive stereotypes to sway attention from yourselves seems to be the modus operandi around here.

If you take issue with the ethics or halachic leanings of certain individuals take it up in the proper threads. This subject has nothing to do with Lakewood.

Obviously as a blanket statement that is not true. But if you say you live there it will definitely raise eyebrows and there might be some explaining to do.  :-\ :-\
It was a Yeshivish place 6 years ago but went downhill in a hurry.
Unless things changed, alot of single parents and divorcees and rumors that go along with them living all in one building.  :-X :-X

That's why I said "may". Either way,its not that I believe the rumors, but as they usually say, when there's smoke there's fire. I really liked the apartments there, but the building itself is what distracts me. Walking around the building gave me this funny vibe. Though I figure there may be others that have felt just like myself, that have started rumors based on their feelings.

what was bad about the neighborhood that they are not "Yeshivish" or that there are single parents living in the Building?
They are not bad things just not good for getting into School.
And rumors are not more than rumors. I did not imply that anything went on just that people WILL look down on him if he says he lives there.
