Over the past few days, I have learned some very important life lessons that I would like to share with you in list form.
1) When The Running Store says that you can return your shoes for any reason within sixty days of purchase, they mean that you can return your shoes for any reason within sixty days of purchase for another pair of running shoes, but under no circumstance will used shoes receive a cash refund.
2) Some, but not all, Ebay stores offer cash refunds. The store that I purchased my second pair of running shoes from does not, but you are able to return them in a trade for a different pair of shoes they sell. Their selection is very limited, and I am left, having saved no money and having managed to spend nearly twice as much as initially was anticipated, with two very similar pairs of running shoes.
Running shoe stores: 2. A.C.: 0.
3) No matter how funny you may think it is, when you have a minor disagreement with your beautiful wife, she will almost never* think that it's funny for you to jokingly assert "Looks like the honeymoon's over." Further, no matter how many times you repeat the joke in different situations thinking that maybe she just didn't get it the times before, this will surprisingly only make matters worse.
*I.e., absolutely never.
