Ok, you know you've done it. While working on your bike you come across a bolt or screw and you dont have the right socket or tool for. You drive yourself to Wal-Mart, buy the tool. You use it, put it back in the package and take it back to Wallyworld for a full refund. Since I had my bike (6 months) Ive done this a few times(ghetto fabulous). I was just wandering, what are some things you bought with the intention of using it and taking it back? Be honest.

guess my conscience tells me if I needed the tool once, I will prolly need it again, so I go to Sears and buy the Craftsman version, and just keep it in my tool box...

That is as bad as buying a pair of underwear, put them on one time, and take them back for a refund. Would you want to buy underwear that someone had there sweaty balls in? :cuss :cuss :cuss :cuss

in fairness to are fellow forum supporter, it is only walmart quality. I doubt that he would do that for a quality product form a quality store. Never the less I would hold onto the tool just cause i would need it later.

One time I bought an adapter from autozone for my torque wrench. It was a 1/2 to 3/8 adapter. i returned it because I found one in my oil filter remover tool :mrgreen:

At my work we get all the major tool manufacturers(snap-on, mac, matco, cornwell)every week I end up buying something, I need them but it's like a constant drain of money :hammer So far my entire collection is real small but worth easily about $800ish, and I'm only 18. My impact gun alone was 200. Luckily for hand tools I get 50% off and I got a sweet deal on a used craftsmen box, almost as tall as me for $150.

I didnt mean to come across as a cheapskate but there have been times I just needed that one little tool and it comes in a huge pack that costs to much and all you NEED is that small tool. I actually hate going to Wal-MArt.

The other day I bought a dolly cause I needed to move a refrigerator around. Well the dolly I bought was kinda flimsy but it did the job. I returned it the next day, scratches and all, because it wasn't sturdy enough. The lady gave me a wierd look but didnt say anything. I just went and bought a better one at another store.
