    The other day, I was taking my defective Droid back to Wal-Mart ($100 cheaper than at Verizon or Best Buy) for a replacement. Before I went into the store, I took out my 16GB microSD card so that I could exchange it for the one that comes with the new Droid. The woman at the counter tried to tell me that I needed my contract in order to do the exchange. Not understanding why, we argued for about 3 minutes before she decided to look at my receipt and saw that I payed full price for it. The woman apologized and proceeded to examine the device. I explained to her how to remove the battery after a few seconds of watching her struggle. Her excuse was "That's what I thought, but I didn't want to break my nails". She tried to do some stuff on the cash register, then called for a Costumer Service Manager to come back. We waited for about 10 minutes, then she called again. The woman asked if I had the original credit card. After I explained that it was a gift and that I was out of town, she tried to tell me that there was nothing she could do without it. Cutting to the end, it took 4 people over a half an hour to work the cash register for the exchange. Through all the frustration, I forgot to mention that I still had the old MicroSD card (got out with 2 16GB SD cards). I remembered later while I was doing some grocery shopping but decided not to do anything about it. Some friends of mine say I was wrong for not saying anything. What do you guys think? What would you have done?

    I doubt she could be this bad. This has to be by far the least attractive woman I have ever seen.

    After all the crap they gave you probably cause they were "going by the rules" they failed the "check for the microSD card" rule so I think you are fine.

    I'm afraid if you go back you are going to get more of a headache for trying to the "the right thing" I suppose you could say you found it on the ground...

    I hate when people ask for the original credit card, I want to hurt them. I've been asked for the original credit card for purchases 4-5 years before...

    I disagree, when you get down to it, no mater the reason it's not yours.

    If you are okay with your self, keep it. I would personally take it back, but I'm weird I guess.

    As a rep, its my job to account for everything before I process the return or exchange. If she realizes that she doesn't have it, then its gonna be her problem. Not yours.

    I had to walk a walmart employee through an exchange myself it was pathetic. Matter of fact I know employees of verizon have to fix peoples accounts sometimes. You get what you pay for I guess.
