Doesn't mean you didn't / won't receive any merchandise.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

your lucky that they could handle even that. Most I go to only let 1 per transaction
The WMT near me lets me do up to $3000 a day, not bad, I would not do more anyway.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.
Pele Good,Maradona Better, George Best.

I just had a big scare!  I thought that I forgot to cancel a ticket within 24 hours.
It would have been $440 down the drain - or just the $300 or so cancellation fee.
Whew!! I had cancelled it.

Called Marriott for redemption from DW's account.

When rep said that the account is marked as Female, I just retorted, oh that's a mistake (could have said as in the past that it is DW's account and I'm calling for her - they would either let it happen or I would need to HUCA - but it was too close to Shabbos to deal with that). Now they want me to send a copy of ID.

Am I better off:
  • fessing up saying what actually happened, providing DW's ID and proof that we're married (was trying to transfer from her account to mine);
  • Photoshop;
  • Attempting to transfer from her Marriott account back to SPG account, and then do SPG to SPG transfer (if I need to, as I'm not sure I can take advantage of United promo before United chart devaluation at this point, taking account all needed transfers)?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Who are they to say you are not female? And simply judging by a voice no less? Threaten a lawsuit.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

They are not judging by voice. They aren't judging at all at this point. They are just asking for ID based on the fact that profile said female and I said it was a mistake.

Send in ID and say you don't identify as a female anymore.

Is that better than fessing up? After all not buying or selling anything, it's all staying within the family.
