It's the most returny time of the year!

It might startle you to learn that some people return their ThinkGeek goodies after the holidays.

We assume that some items just don't fit. Or maybe grandma got a lil' laser-pointer happy this year. The alternative is just unnatural.

And thus we are confronted with mountains of boxes in our smallish Fairfax, Virginia office, where our customer service monkeys sort and reship items back to our warehouse in New Jersey.

Every afternoon Mt. Boxmore is moved; each morning a new craggy peak appears. And our FedEx, UPS, and USPS delivery people are our friendly sherpa guides. (We <3 Chuck, Shirley, and Crazy Cross-Eyed Bob.)

meaningless icon! Who the heck would return a ThinkGeek gift?! Hahaha, I just realized that's essentially what AutomaticLimit just posted...

meaningless icon! Ah yes, Mt. Returnage. I'm convinced that it's actually there all the time, but simply cloaked most of the year. Then, Customer Service simply turns the cloaking device back on, and it goes away. Right, Janel?

meaningless icon! Who gets to open all of them? ;)

meaningless icon! @Magmma Me! And about 10 other people. It's like Christmas every day!

meaningless icon! More like antiChristmas. You get paid to open boxes of stuff you already had, but had sent to someone else. Man I'm glad I don't do holidays. Pictures like these make me sad.

meaningless icon! Hmm, prehaps Thinkgeek could do a grab-bag of all these used toys? I'd be up for buying a few...

meaningless icon! NEWS FLASH: Conspiracy theory - ThinkGeek is run by AI bots who don't want us humans to enjoy are blinky-winky toys!
zinc said this 2108 days ago.
meaningless icon! There's an idea. Kinda like does with the B.O.C. Just a bag of random stuff for $10. It's a big hit there on the Wootoffs.

meaningless icon! I'm with the others...who would send back ThinkGeek stuff?? I love everything I've ever gotten and if I tire of something, there is always another Geek without in my circle who would love the thingie for a while.

meaningless icon! @ Mustadio Yeah I loved the Monkeybreath packing poppers too! Best use of corporate revenue ever.

meaningless icon! I bought my dad a bunch of thinkgeek stuff a few years back and he returned it and made me get him something off his amazon wishlist. He threw a hissy fit, I couldn't believe that he would do such a thing but it happened... WTF.
