    Advice to Management

    Stop bending over backwards for unworthy customers. Such customers take advantage of the systems store ratings and in the end loses the store money. Also if I was a customer in line behind some returning used garbage from a year ago and getting their money back I would be outraged. These people do not deserve special treatment and it is unfair to everyone else.
