Speaking of love …
When do most people drop the L word for the first time? According to a new survey, more than 50 percent of respondents said they would wait at least three months before saying I love you for the first time. 33 percent of women and 29 percent of men were somewhere in between, saying they would say those three little words between one and three months into the relationship. But when it came to early L word users, men were more than twice as likely than women to say I love you after only knowing someone for a week. Five percent of men said they’d profess their love after one week compared to 2 percent of women. (Elite Daily)
L.L. Bean Changes Its Generous Return Policy
L.L. Bean has always been known for having one of the most generous return policies of any company, but that’s about to change, and you can blame customers for it.
The 106-year-old company has always offered a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their products, meaning they could return things at any time, but it seems a growing number of people have been abusing L.L.Bean’s generosity. According to the company, in the past five years, returns of products that have been destroyed, or even ones purchased from third-party sellers or retrieved from the garbage, have doubled, so now they are imposing some restrictions.
The company will still accept returns for any reason, but they are now imposing a one-year limit from time of purchase, and people must show proof of purchase. If a product has a manufacturing defect though, they’ll still take it back past the one-year timeframe.
And while you may expect customers to be up in arms over the change, a survey finds that 85% are actually okay with the update. “It was bound to happen," one Montana resident said. "It doesn't change my opinion of the company at all. I understand why're they're doing it."
