    Shit you are so fucking fat and lazy you can’t even take your fat ass up the stairs for a coke anymore? You need a mini fridge in the basement?
    How sad of a person are you trying to be, man? Your hate-driven rant doesn't even work. Here, let me ease the situation. 1. I thought this a weird situation and wished to gauge how others would deal with returning a large and expensive item. I still don't know how it's going to work out being a larger package. 2. I don't live in a basement. 3. So you don't want something dedicated to cold beverages? No room for cans in the regular fridge. It's full of other essentials like eggs, cheese, milk\creamer, condiments, and salad veggies. Mini fridges are designed more for beverages. Now chill that rattler, you snap at people like a pissy teenager for little reason.

    I don't seek reward for doing what's right.

    They might cost you about $25 a month each to run. Look at your electric bill and determining the price per hour. Note the kilowatt/hour of the device. Multiply by the number of hours per month you would run it. I have one in the hangar and it's unplugged at the moment. I'll only plug it in if I plan on spending a lot of time out there.

    In this case it's compensation for your time, gas and wear and tear on your car. They made a mistake. It doesn't hurt to ask. If they say fuck you, then you could still send it in.

    Contact the seller often they will say just keep it, or pay the return shipping. Only honest thing to do. Let us know what happens.

    We have a large loft upstairs that's divided into his and mine. His is an office space but also includes bookcases, a fat comfy chair, table, lamp, hassock -- so it's also a reading area. There are two mini fridges in the basement that we don't use. I keep muttering about trucking one upstairs so I don't have to get up and go ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE KITCHEN to get more ice for my tea. Because I am just that lazy. lol

    You are not lazy, it’s just convenient. I’m impressed you do stairs. When we moved the only thing I demanded is that the house be a single story. My brother in law fell down the steps and broke his ankle at his house. They are good exercise, but dangerous for little old people

    I used to keep one in the office at work for cold beer.

    Agreed about convenience, especially with stairs.

    BTW, I redid the math on my Midea mini-fridge. My mistake; it's a lot better than I thought. We pay 9 cents a kilowatt hour and the fridge uses 207 KW/year which means an average cost of $18.63/year. I'll be plugging my fridge back in and stock it with beer and sodas.

    FWIW, and I'm sure many know this, a full fridge is easier and cheaper to keep cool then an empty one.

    Hey! Who you calling little old people? lol When we first saw this house online the stairs thing didn't even occur to either of us. Mr. Owl has slipped on them a couple of times but I've managed so far to stay upright. They really are good exercise, especially on laundry days.

    It's a stainless steel fridge, so it has a good look. Ebay was acting weird but Walmart has the specs. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Galanz-2-...?selected=true Too bad Walmart didn't have any, it would have been cheaper.

    An honest person would return it. If you're honest, you'd do the right thing. If you're not, you'll do the left wing thing and keep it believing it's owed to you.

    Look at it this way....this indicates that you are a better person than a lot of your peers are. I know that of my grandparents generation almost everyone would have contacted the seller for guidance.
