Nope. It was a computer glitch. Cabela’s will refund the money.

How does a 'glitch' like that happen? What hoops do I have to jump through to get my refund? Why did this crap happen in the first place?

Why the heck did you bring Laz into this discussion? He's not on this thread...yet. I have read every comment of yours and all you have done is defend this travesty.

"They will refund your money".

Screw that! Don't steal it from me in the first place!

I hope you're not really from Texas, and if you are, you're probably from Austin.

Dude, WTF is your problem? Laz is a good friend of mine, who is also a fellow programmer. Not that you deserve an explanation after being so rude, but I was pinging Laz for his thoughts on the oddity of this “computer glitch.” It seems extremely random and I’m not sure I buy the explanation of “computer glitch.”

Nonetheless, I am not defending jack sh*t. The article attempts to anger the reader and as it turns out ... for no damn reason. Cabela’s offered an explanation that the author conveniently buried in the story. The author just wanted hits. I didn’t want fellow FReepers to get jerked around by the author’s horsesh*t. Also, I happen to really like Cabela’s. They don’t deserve bad publicity linking them to Obamacare.

You don’t have to jump through any hoops to get a refund. If you paid by CC, call customer service, they’ll expedite a refund of the erroneous charge. If you paid with cash, go the store. They’ll give you cash back. It ain’t difficult.

No, I don’t live in Austin. I live in DFW. Take your knee-jerk insults and hit the road.

I obviously misunderstood your intentions. For that, I publically apologize to you BuckeyeTexan.

Wow. I am humbled. That took significant moral character. You are absolutely forgiven. I, too, apologize for the tone of my reply.
