What I think? Or "you" as in all of castanet posters?

I think a multibillion dollar company can go two ways on this:

Say, "no." But they should not because the tree was especially made for their retail sales and they know it. So they SHOULD just refund you the money and take their tree back. Even if they junk it in the dumpster in under one minute.
Could it be that a whole life can shift the day one starts telling the truth about what makes one happy?

Funny because I loaded into by damn car, not knowing how I felt about it, other than I felt like I literally used a tree out of a box for about 3 weeks that cost $175.00 on clearance and $400 regularly.

I took a shot at it, and they denied me, and looked at me like I was ... Well...An entitled snowflake [icon_lol2.gif]

However, after I charmed them with my winning personality and my stubbornness to not take crap and smile while I eat it, they did replace it, with the lesser quality tree. But they were shaking their heads at me out the door I know it.

Sleeveless Dress Demeaning according to Kim Campbell:
https://www.castanet.net/news/Canada/218764/Sleeveless-dress-demeaning
Honestly, don't people have more important issues to complain about?
If a news anchor chooses to wear a sleeveless dress, then how is that demeaning? It would be a different issue if they were being forced to wear them.

What is demeaning is any woman having to justify something as pithy as a sleeveless dress to another woman, and then some!

Some folks are so easily offended. Perhaps they should get over themselves. This was clearly tongue in cheek on the part of the restaurant owner. It's not a public washroom. If you don't like it, eat elsewhere.

I am curious as to what you are talking about and how this relates to political correctness?

Store return policy = people being offended?

I haven't read the previous conversations, so I'm only guessing on what's been said. All I would add is that women generally look a lot better/attractive with sleeves. Going sleeveless is not going to attract any positive male attention, especially if you have large shoulders or arms.

Keep in mind that the kerfuffle over the sign on the bathroom door is limited to one person. One person, who no doubt contacted the media herself. The media ran with it, hoping to generate discussion and attention just like it's getting here.

It reminds me of the Starbucks "red cup" fiasco of a few years ago. A tiny number of people complained, and it seemed like half the world jumped in to backlash against them. It made it seem like a much bigger deal than it actually was.

Whenever someone does something, there will likely be a few outliers who are furious about it. The media loves to cover them. Don't let that be your guide to what the world is coming to.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.
