Care to share? Do they verify Silver status before connecting you to an agent like CO does?

The automated thing asks you for your DM number, after you put it in it says "Thank you for calling DM Silver line" or something like that. I always get a US rep in under a minute, and they have no clue what my number is, I can give them any number. I've never given them a regular number, so I don't know if they'll say "Hey! You're not Silver"

A little old lady went to the grocery store and put the most expensive cat food in her basket. She then went to the check out counter where she told the check out girl, "Nothing but the best for my little kitten."

"The girl at the cash register said, "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you cat food without proof that you have a cat. A lot of old people buy cat food to eat, and the management wants proof that you are buying the cat food for your cat."

The little old lady went home, picked up her cat and brought it back to the store.

They sold her the cat food.

The next day, the old lady went to the store and bought 12 of the most expensive dog biscuits -- one for each day of Christmas. The cashier this time demanded proof that she now had a dog, claiming that old people sometimes eat dog food.

Frustrated she went home, came back and brought in her dog.

She was then given the dog cookies.

The next day she brought in a box with a hole in the lid. The little old lady asked the cashier to stick her finger in the hole.

The cashier said, "No, you might have a snake in there."

The little old lady assured her that there was nothing in the box that would bite her.

So the cashier put her finger into the box and pulled it out and told the little old lady, "That smells like crap!!"

The little old lady grinned from ear to ear, "Now, my dear, can I please buy three rolls of toilet paper?"

So this guy is chatting with a supervisor at Macy's and says I see so many Jewish people shopping here, I think you would make a ton of money selling Esrogim to them. The Supervisor says we actually did that one year and it was a huge hit because they all sold out, but apparently there was something wrong with the Esrogim because 2 weeks later they were all returned...

(Anyone buying their Arba minim on a Starwood...? Just kidding )

Hmm...that ain't no joke!  The examiner definitely won't be laughing when he gets a $100 lemon sent back!

From the makers of the Pop-Up Sukkah:

Does constipation from eating all that Matza on Pesach ruin your holiday? With our new Kosher-Lepesach laxetive you wont even remember you ate Matza. It's called "let my people go".

Are perishables excluded from Return protection? If not they may decide to exclude them very soon...

But seriously, this would get pretty complicated Halachikly.

More on the lines of "esrog hagozul" e.i. Is it genieva to buy something and use it, when you had in mind to return it to begin with. Even if not geneiva, it may be considered like you never bought it, so it was never yours and you were not yotze the mitzva.

My point was that even though you know you're giving it back, at the time you have its yours.

I see what you mean.

Something slightly related and may give another perspective on this:

A while ago I was reading a kovets on preparations for marriage and the author had some sound advice on buying the kidushin ring.
1) The ring you are mekadesh with has to be bought with the Chosson's own money, not borrowed or bought for him, or there can be a question on the whole Kidushin.
2) Don't buy it on a credit card since it may technically not belong to you until you pay the bill.
3) If you did buy it on a CC, pay the bill right away.

The guy that wrote this is not a Rav AFAIK but it certainly makes sense.
