I forgot to mention that yesterday I successfully returned that Black Diamond backpack to MEC. Although the guy at the returns counter wasn’t impressed. He said it was “normal wear and tear” on an item. But I had only used it for 4 hours! Oh well. I got my $35 back anyway.
After MEC, BF and I went for dinner with his parents (they treated). The food was below average, and our waitress was insane (not in a good way), but it was nice to see them again. I think we’re going to see them again one more time on Thursday before they leave to go back to Alberta.
As for those ridiculously expensive boots that I bought last night? Well it turns out that the extra padded tongue was missing from the box, so I’m going to have to call MEC and see if they have it somewhere in the back. Otherwise I’ll have to return them and buy them from another MEC store? Or … well I don’t know. We’ll see what they say.
