Got some pretty lucky stuff happen to me. Before the SM Tactical Squad prices went up, I had a box lying in the room where I keep ma spacemen, which I wasn't aware of. When I was clearing it out I saw the unopened box with a receipt. I took it back to the store, with a receipt from before the prices went up, and they gave me a refund worth what the squad cost after the price rise. Profit

bought a Box of warriors of chaos, that only came with enough heads to make half of them complete. Called the customer line, and they sent me a whole new box. Which comes with enough heads for both

Received Assault on Black Reach as a gift.

One Deffkopta had a molding error, making it unassemblable.

I was sent an entirely new copy of Assault on Black Reach.

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Was helping the manager at my GW store clean out the back of stuff. We pick up four cases to look through and add to the display cases. One of them had random stuff in it that the manager called trash and was going to throw away. I said that there was a "metric shit tonne of lizardmen in there that I'll use" got away with 10 temple guard, 13 saurus warriors, 30 skinks, and 8 cold blood riders. I was happy xD

three years ago, I left highschool a year early cause i got a scollarship, once the third year hit the lecturer we had retired and they got a fresh one in still doing modules to become a fully qualified teacher.... (retarded i know) anyway, due to him not fully knowing what he was doing (he needed an answer key to mark my test on network protocols despite having worked as a network admin for 3 years) i got a debt with a government organisation that helps students and low income families (apparently i didnt submit enough work to have qualified for them to pay me, so i have to pay it back, and apealing it yielding no results) anyway... after the scolarship finished, I faced a choice by the same organisation, submit applications to a number of employers every fortnight, go back to school, or lose my payments, I chose school so i could get my SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education), shortly after doing so, I met a girl in the year level below mine, and not long after, we started going out (little over 8 months ago :D)

thats probably not going to read well and is full of extra notes but 'tis my tale of how leaving school got me a debt and a girlfriend

Well... It's not warhammer related - but I once bought some haribo and found a piece of wood in it.

I told them about it; and they replied: "Oh! I hope this doesn't make you frown upon haribo - Here take a small gift from us"

13 packets of haribo later, I regretted buying the first bag.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.
