Should I return this??

I bought my son some realy cute shoes from Payless because at the time he needed some bigger ones. Luckly I was blessed with 6 pairs of used shoes in good condition for him by someone else.

The shoes I got are 6.5 and he is like 5.5 or a 6. I got them for $7. Reason i am considering returning them is because I overdrafted my account and if I return them thaat is $ back to me (I overdrafted because my cell phone company took 7 days to claim the money from my account and my available balance didnt reflect it so I thought it was right and maybe I did some wrong math...silly I know). Also the shoes are a bit big for him. but they are rally nice and I kinda want to keep them because they are new. I always want him to have the best so I kinda feel bad I am considering taking something for him back...advice please :(

  • Naw, I would keep them cause that's a deal and well I don't know that the $7 will be enough to cover overdraft fee.

  • Depending on how big the shoes given to you are, if they are his current size and the new ones the next size up then I would say keep them. If they are all the same size then return the new ones if you need the money and he wouldn't really wear them, since he has the used one.

  • I don't see how returning $7 shoes will "fix" the overdraft.

  • Do you have any idea how fast does a boy grow? And how many shoes does he need? They use up shoes like eating breakfast. And they grow like beans (fast:) So surely keep the shoes. If you want to get money from somewhere than get your old mobile phone and send it to the phone recycling. So you get good money for it. Or sell something you don't need on the ebay. Never think about returning thing you need. Always think about sell something that you don't need but someone else might. Mhaw:P

  • its only 7 dollars you're overdraft fee will be more then that anyways,. You wont find $7 dollar shoes again ,keep them until he can fit into them. i buy bigger sizes for my kids all the time if its good deal. I have their closets organized by size.
