what time did you purchase it?

The local Wal-Mart here only does exchanges/returns between 8am and 4pm
so ours sucks more than yours....

at least in the walmart I used to go to in college, exchanges and refunds were all handled by the customer service department in the store, which was only staffed during typical business hours.

it just irritated me that i just bought a defective product, brought it straight back and they made me buy another one...the manager wouldn't even do anything...then they want me to make another trip back to the store over 20 fvcking dollars

You bought it, walked back to your car, drove home, unpacked it, tried it, didn't work, repacked it, got back into your car, drove back to walmart all in 20 minutes?

Do you live in their parking lot or something?

They did something similar to me awhile back. I just swapped them on the shelf and called it a day.
