Mind fart.

I bought my niece a nice jacket for $50. I really like this jacket and wished that I could have gotten myself one just like it, but they only had one in our size. If she doesn't like this jacket, I am thinking about buying it off of her - therefore, her gift would be $50 cash (in exchange for the jacket).

All is good, but somehow I'd end up with a $50 jacket that I paid $100 for, $50 to her and $50 to the store. How am I being the one getting ripped off? And by whom?

What are you talking about Jsharr? I would be buying the jacket off of her if she doesn't like it.

Mind farts are waaaaay more dangerous than your average brain fart.

Ok, i'm going to go read the first post now.

Edit: Meh, don't buy it back unless it's a really really cool jacket that you'll never ever ever ever find anywhere else.

You are not getting ripped off. You are giving her $50 and also buying a $50 jacket for yourself.

What is she getting you? Tell her you want a $50 jacket and you come out even.

You figured it out, Cbad. Yep!! But for a second there I thought I was paying $100 for a $50 jacket.

And she's my niece. She doesn't have to get me anything but good grades in college.

Siu, I really hope you are kidding about just figuring this out. I mean I am simpleton, hence my selling the jacket to her to pay for the gift card.

Oh yeah? Well lets see you mind fart your way out of this one...

There are 3 guys, they are going to stay in a hotel, and the night is $30, so they each give $10, they go up to there room, but the manager sees that there is a special of $25 a night, so he takes $5 and gives it to the bellboy, the bellboy atomaticly takes $2 as tip and gives the other $3 to the guys, so each guy gets one dollar back, so is like saying that instead of giving $10 they each give $9, now $9+$9+$9 its $27 and the $2 that the bellboy took is $29 were is the other dollar.

You're not getting ripped off. You'd be buying yourself a jacket for $50 and still giving her a $50 gift (cash, in this case). If there were two, you'd have bought them both and paid the $100....

25/3 = 8.333

2/3 = .66666

8.333 + .6666 = 9

9 + 1 = 10

If the store had had 2 coats in that size, you'd've spent $100 on them but wound up keeping only the one for yourself. In the case that she doesn't like it, you will spend $100 and wind up with only the one for yourself. Same same.

So in essence the $25 room was split by the three guys - one paid 9, two paid 8. In reality it's 10,9,9. There's the other dollar.
