Last evening I had been to mall, there I saw 'pure leather’ belts selling for 250 rupees each, I bought one of brown color, it was soft. I thought it was a good deal. On coming home, I showed it to my wife and daughter in law, my granddaughter asked me to wear it, oh my god, what a mistake, it was so short, I needed a longer one. I thought I got cheated, though it was not cheating, it was my mistake, I would have checked before making payment. [i][b]Anything similar that happened to you or your family members? Please share.[/b][/i] Thank you so much in advance. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. . Cheers have a lucky day ahead.

Hello my friend Professor2010 Ji, WEll, I know anyone reading this response would enjoy and burn some of energy by laughing. As we were due to return to India from Miami USA, our DIL took us for shopping . We purchasedf many items including some children watres like T-shirts / Frocks etc. On our return, we found all expotrthed by India with marking on them. We laughed as thi sshould have been checked before buying. Such items are avilable. many a timesit has happened that my hubby forgot to carry his purse and noted after reaching market. Soo he would first borrow from me OR borow from known shop-keepers in the market. Once we travelled to Delhi en route Jammu, after reaching Delhi, we realiozed taht we had forgotton tickets from Delhi to Jammu. Please do laugh and let me know if did nmot. Thanks. May God bless You and have a great time.

Similar things happen many times to many people.Perhaps it is the first time for you to experience such incident.When I wanted to join masters degree in chennai and Madras in olden days We wanted to purchase a new bush coat (not to be seen now a days} and went to MOOR MARKET ( famous for cheating}.Myself and my cousin went to puchase and we were aware that we might be cheated and we cautioned each other.When we asked the price in a shop he said it was Rs 30/- and we bargained it for Rs25/- but we wanted to enquire in another shop and it was Rs 25/- there and we bargained for Rs20/- and purchased it for Rs 20/-.All the way home we were discussing how easily we could have been cheated had we bought it for Rs25/-At home when we showed it to my uncle he simply asked without enquiring anything.." why did you buy a second hand bush coat"...

Yes. It is their policy. It is also part of their business. It is now upon us to be careful enough not to make the mistake again.

From this lesson, you should be more caution during your shopping. Anyhow, you still can try to exchange your belt with the relevant merchant. In my mind, I shall always go for shopping with my wife or my daughters. ha! ha! ha! They are really good by comparing to man.

Two incidences come to my mind. One was a pair of socks which I bought it for Rs.10, and I found out it was so small, that even my little son was not able to use it. The other one, is of course the same belt story. The belt was small and would not fit my waist, but of course I used the buckle in the belt with another belt which I was using.So it was not a complete waste. Basically, I would not blame the seller, since in both the times, it was quite dark when I was making the purchases, and I must have checked before buying.

Hi dear, Such an experience I never faced. If you nearby the shop, you may able to exchange it or you can give someone at home for their use. Always, it is a must that the product what we are purchasing is satisfy the required purpose. As long as it is a belt, it don’t have any other alternate us and you should have just keep it on your waist, whether it is fitting to you. However, it is quite natural. Two days before I got a T-shirt for my son, and when I reached at home and the moment he took the T-shirt at hand, he said, it is small for me. Yes, it was really small for him, but I got it exchanged on the next day. So, if possible, have a try, they may give you another one, which will suit for you. Best regards, Thank-s

Yes, it was for something important too! I bought a dress in a hurry. Didn't try on the belt that came with it. I trusted it would match the dress size. I got home and it was several sizes too small. I had to wear it that night so I couldn't return it in time. That was 27 years ago. It never happened again!

Many times Professor, as I believe sometimes I concentrate on the deal as to what I am actually getting. Tell me why many times I set out to buy a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of conditioner that I check the price, content and read the labels. Okay so happy when I get a great deal as I have long hair down to my waist. So lots of shampoo and conditioning for me. So I get home and ready to store them a way and I read them again, to find I either have two shampoos and two conditioners. Never one of each. Happens so often it feels like something is snickering.

I probably done it several times in the past. But I learn it in a hard way already. I should try it out whether the belt fit me or not first, before I actually fork over my money. Can you actually bring your belt back to the store, and exchange another one? You can do it too right?

A belt is one thing I always test first, but I have bought other things, ended up not having them fit, and had to take them back.

Hi Professor2010, Yes you would have checked the size buy just wearing on top of your shirt, generally I check the size of the belt when I buy and if it is holes model with buckle I ask the shop keeper to make some more holes. Generally senior persons like you will cross check the things twice to thrice but somehow you missed it means you might busy or having something else in mind if I am right. Anyways you can simply exchange it for a bigger size since it is smaller one for you and I don't think the shopkeeper will not no to you. Happy Living Calpro
