I Wish Itunes had a Return Policy

I am not sure how it would work, but it would definitely be helpful.  How many times have you bought a song on Itunes because you were in a certain mood?  Maybe you just broke up with someone and all you want to listen to is sad music like Sinead O’Connors “Nothing Compares to You”, Boyz II Men’s “It’s so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”, or pretty much any song written by Adele.  Or maybe you are having a bad day.  You know, the kind of day when you wake up late for work, no clean underwear, only 1 pair of socks and those have a hole in the heel, your car’s gas light is on, your boss yells at you when you finally get to work and makes you stay late and since it is Wednesday that really ticks you off because that means you are going to miss the new episode of Modern Family and since your DVR is busted you know it won’t record so you are going to have to wait a few days for it to be posted on Hulu but you know everybody at work is going to be talking about it the next day so by the time it is available on Hulu you will have already heard about all of the funny parts.  Guess what, time to go to Itunes and buy some Limp Bizkit.  The problem is Fred Durst never sounds all that good or intelligent when you are not angry at the world.  Or how about when they have a special where you can buy 4 movies for $20.  Sure, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, “The Girl Next Door”, and “Wedding Crashers” was a good idea.  But what were you thinking when you included,                                                                                                                                                                                                  You really should have known better.

 

I want to be able to return my bad purchases, just like I can do any pretty much every other store.

I don’t really know what the solution is.  I understand that as a business model Itunes would not be successful if people could return music and movies.  They aren’t Blockbuster after all.  Maybe they could flag certain songs to pop up warnings when you try to buy them.  For example, you try to buy “Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit.  When you click the purchase button a window pops up and says, “Are you sure you want to do this?  I realize you are probably having a bad day and this song appeals to your anger but think about the future.  You are going to have to explain the presence of this song on your Ipod to anyone that sees it”.  Or maybe you try the aforementioned Boyz II Men song.  In this instance the pop up window could just say, “Really?  Could you get any more cliché?  Get over it.”  Movies would be a little more complicated because you have to draw a line between a warning and a film review.  Warnings are helpful, film reviews are not.  I rarely read/listen to film reviews because many times they are wrong or just plain ridiculous.  I remember reading one review to a movie recently and it said, “Tasteless, juvenile, low budget.  The plot was not believable and the acting was mediocre at best.” I think he took his job a little too serious.  It was a porn movie after all.

Something must be done, of this I am certain.  And if anyone can pull it off, it would be Apple.  They  did come out with SIRI after all and that thing is able to tell you where to find a picture of a Liger racing a Unicorn while eating the best Chinese food in town.
