They think that because they spent money (any amount of it really... If it was $40.00 they would say that was a lot, it doesn't matter) that it must defy the laws of consumer electronics and arrive 100% flawless (no reason but because they spent their money and because they say so).

No ip5 is "perfect", sorry. Give me a microscope and a few hours and i can find a flaw. That's essentially what the ocd do, even if it's on a slightly larger scale. I've seen people at the apple store with magnifying glasses. They lose sleep much? Sheesh...

And yes, you are correct, a normal person that was really this upset by such a "travesty" (at least something horrible enough to warrant a dozen trips there) wouldn't keep returning for more punishment. A normal person would return it a couple times, and if it still didn't meet their expectations they'd move on to something else that did.

Then there's that definition of insanity...

It's certainly their right to return it as many times as apple will allow, but they're kidding themselves if they think the majority of the world considers it "normal". Just because you can do something doesn't mean it's the norm.

It's not. Sorry.

I'm on my third swap and they were annoyed with me (this was a different store from the other two) and they told me they'd start denying me swaps because I've done it too much. What ********.

I definitely would return it if I found a scratch on my new iPhone. For the price I'm paying, I expect it to look perfect out of the box. If it had any type of scratch or dent on it, it should be because I dropped it later on or something

Well good for them. I've been wanting them to start denying the more annoying requests. If you had a real issue they wouldn't have gotten annoyed with you.
