January 14, 2013
The kickboxing and slam classes I attend have tripled in size since January 1; a common happening thanks to all who have a resolution the get fit for 2013. My church services have been packed too, and the line is longer at Whole Foods. Occurrences like these creates a stir amongst the regular attendees at the gym who have gotten used to having their particular space on the mat, or a parishioner who has a seating preference. Location means a lot, especially to those who work out; some prefer standing closer to the instructor while others, usually those who don't want to be called on for not putting out, stand in the back. The newbies disperse all over the place, and usually land on someone else's spot. We regulars joke that things will get back to normal by February, because a lot of people don't stick with it. However, some of us don't handle this change that easily. You would think that church goers wouldn't get so challenged over a seat loss either, but moving one's place prior to getting inspired can be challenging. Or not.

She decided to wait until the holiday return rush was over before she attempts to return her own goods. Here are some tips to make sure her returns
are handled smoothly:
• Make sure all tags and packaging and the original box are included with all returns, otherwise she could be subject to a 15-percent restocking fee.
Even if a tag has been cut off, bring or send it.
• Bring a receipt, otherwise a credit might only be offered and possibly at a reduced price.
• Make sure you ship items back to the correct address. The return address on the box is not always the company's return address.
• Call ahead to make sure a replacement size or part is available before you attempt the return, plus make all returns as soon as possible.
