Word recovered and I salvaged my doc. Pared it down to the “making a point” 441 pages, topped it with a single-page, 3 paragraph, indisputable summary, and hurled it at a customer, with “let me know if this answers your question”.  What did I get back?

"Let’s do this Friday."

I give up.

"offered for $450 plus shipping"
“All of these lights sport some tool marks and various cosmetic singularities. Some may be obvious and some you may need to look closely for. If you receive one of these lights and decide that it does not meet your expectation then you can either lower your expectations or simply send the light back for a full refund. I won’t offer an exchange for probably obvious reasons.”
So… $450+ for a titanium flashlight with guaranteed imperfections… no exchanges, just “lower your expectations” or return it. No, sorry, your “reasons” aren’t obvious. In fact, “reason” doesn’t seem to have a place here. Setting aside the sheer fucking lunacy of spending $450 on a flashlight, for that price any-got-damned-thing I buy better be perfect. Period, end of expectation, right there.

I had plans…

… of a semi-coherent post tonight. But I spent the day face-first in software logs and auditing a couple of really mucked accounts, putting up with Queen Lovely-Perfume-MUST-You-Marinate-In-It?, and then food shopped on the way home. Two slices of pizza later, I got nothin’. Catch y’all tomorrow?
