So while reading the Friggin Loon the other day, I notice a story about a woman named Trina Thompson who is suing her alma mater Monroe College because she has not been able to get a job. Her claim is that it is the universities fault and she would like a refund of her $70,000 tuition.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all get a refund for things that didn’t go exactly as we planned. Some things for me would be:
– Refund from my dates that I shelled out alot of money for dinner only to find out that they decided after the first five minutes that they weren’t all that into me.
– Refund from my personal trainer because after 3 years of paying him, I still don’t have six pack abs. Even though I only work out really once a week and still eat what I want. But really it is his fault.
So what would you like a refund for?

Refund for all of the money I’ve shelled out for wrinkle-reducing creams, eye puffiness erasers and makeup. I still don’t look like Halle Berry.
Refund for every “Angel” LP I ever bought. What the hell was I thinking?
I want a refund for all of the hair spray I purchased during the 80’s and I think the money should come from Jon Bon Jovi … if it wasn’t for him we’d probably still have an ozone layer!
Figures since “you give love a bad name”
I want a refund Publishers Clearing House for all the stamps I used and I’m still not a winner..
But how many magazines did you order?
i’d like a refund on the past 5 years.
cus wow. they definitely didn’t go as planned
Who are you asking to pay up?
bearman, I think we must have the same trainer. How can he not overcome a few beers and Twinkies?
I also want a refund for all of the guitar gear I have. I still don’t sound like Jeff Beck.
Never had beer with my twinkies. Any good?
She should have just dropped out like everyone else!
People piss me off with things like this. There was a story on the radio about a robber who sued the guy that put his head through glass in his own home that was being robbed! The robber won!
That’s why juries are stupid. Who would rule in the crooks favor
I think her lawsuit is both awesome and awful. I love that she is trying to get her tuition back but I mean come on now lady!
Can god give me a refund b/c I was born to parents who weren’t rich or famous?
I want a refund from the SeaMonkeys I bought … I followed all the directions but I don’t even see movement, much less crowned dudes playing with a little ball! 🙂
What about frolicking on the sand
For all the furniture in my house. It just doesn’t look as good as the day I purchased it.
Could it be ruined from all the Jumping “beans”?
Yes I want a seamonkey refund too, I was extremely disappointed as a child that I only had little sperm like things instead of the crowned dudes playing with balls & stuff. Unlike spilledinkguy at least I had movement, even if it did look like someone ejaculated into my bottle of water
Is that what that stuff was…freeze dried sperm?
i’d like a refund for my waxing cause the hair grew back!!
yeah well, i cant reach my back, and those pesky taint hairs bug me.
haha…not touching that comment or those hairs.
Oh man, I wish I had a better one than refunds for bad dates, but that’s gotta be the top one on my list.
I feel your pain.
BM, I want a refund for all the money I shelled out at a bar called “Cowboys”, that claims to be “The Most Fun You Can Have With Your Boots On”.
Turns out it isn’t.
Ah, if refunds could just re-fund, my son’s college bills might be fully funded.
There is something FUNDamentally wrong with your logic.
If we’re talking refunds, I’ll go for the big one….. ALL THE TAX I’VE PAID SINCE I STARTED WORK IN 1976.
I’ve not seen a fat lot for it, except successive British governments blowing it on wars, from The Falklands (to keep Thatcher in power) through to Afghanistan and Iraq (to keep the Yanks happy).
I’m not happy about any of it, and I want my bloody money back.
Don’t you always brag about your free healthcare…
It aint free if you’re a taxpayer.
Some bugger has to fund the NHS, and it sure as hell aint the people who seem to get most use out of it.
This is terrible… I’m beginning to sound positively right wing, old and opinionated. I’m turning into Don Mills!
Well see but you got something for all your high taxes..haha
I doubt she’s planning to hand her degree back if she did get the money back. Something for nothing, sounds like that’s her mindset. The college owed her an education but it does not owe her a job. It did not even owe her a degree. Your education is what you make of it and it hasn’t guaranteed employment for quite some time now. Anyone expecting to be able to just wander into graduate jobs after college is just very, very naive.
