No sense in trying to be responsible for that.

When people buy stuff we call it "going out the back door." In other words... death sentence.
Most people do not pay attention, and you cannot train them, teach them, or guide them.
I have seen the most hilarious examples. I had a lady bring back some dead shrubs, I mean dead. I listened to her persuasive speech, then asked if she watered them. She said, " I sure did." I then pulled a plant from the container and poofs of dust came out. I could see the fresh water line on the pro mix, which is hydro phobic when bone dry, and how it channeled down a line right through the bottom. I do not reward liars, but will help a novice who made a mistake. In short, I use a case by case return clause.
