No where near the same IMHO. For instance I never heard about hole-in-sheet before I came here. I would bet the house most non-Jews haven't either.

It's in Curb Your Enthusiasm, and even other Jews believe it about Chassidic Jews.

blessed food, hole in sheet, same difference i guess.

IMO Myth of hole comes form some goy seeing tzitzes hanging on a clothes line.
actually it's a yerushalmi yevamos 1b

That would be specific to a yevama.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Of course, and thats why r' Yose did it like that
(question is why 5 times unless it was quints)
The point is that most chumros come from somewhere
The reason (according to meforshim there) is that he didn;t want pleasure from a mitzva
It's easy to see how that could morph into a modern day stringency
couple that with R' Eliezer's way (Megaleh Tefach, Bu'al K'Shed)......

I purchased glasses on sale last night. The lenses were not on sale and were quite expensive. Today I called back the store and told them I had decided against some of the extra lens options I had selected yesterday, such as extreme thinning and anti-glare coating, as I wanted to hold down the total cost. They told me that sale items are non returnable, despite the fact that the lenses were not on sale the frames were and that's considered a sale package. Fyi they definitely did not start any work on the lenses yet. Are they right or wrong?

I think they're wrong, but can get away with it.  Perhaps go down there, not on the phone. Be polite. Be firm, but persistent. Discreetly throw in 'credit card dispute'. Maybe even concede that they don't have to, but it's good for customer service, since you heard such good things about them- that's why you came to them in the first place.

I won't dispute it. I would definitely do return protection but it may not be covered and anyway is way over $300. As of now they said they'll call me back

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
