Don't get me wrong, I understand completely. But in this case, with
photos showing the damage, and considering it'll cost at least another $30
to have this shipped back to her, the question is WHY? What the hell is
she going to do with a 40 pound pile of crap? It'll probably cost her
another $5 to dispose of it. And whatever insurance claim she tries to
file will probably not cover the return postage, let alone the damage to
the unit since she didn't bother packing it properly.

It just doesn't make sense. Hence, my complete and total moron
