[Balin] Kat of nine tales

Postby Balin » Sun Feb 21, 2021 6:17 pm

If Kat had bought it in person, she wouldn't have proved the adage. How?

OOATP rules apply

EDIT: OOATP rules no longer apply

Instead of buying it in person, did she buy it online? send someone else to buy it? get it as a gift?

Does the adage have anything to do with shopping/buying? buying gifts? being kind? the internet? prices?

Is it about being kind to other people in general? A specific person? A specific event?

Did the adage come true when Kat ordered the item? Paid for it? Waited for it? Received it?

Did Kat get the item as ordered? Did she get something else? Nothing? More than she had ordered? Less? Was it broken? Was the order delivered to someone else? Something about the payment relevant?

Did Kat end up happy after all? angry? disappointed?

Did she send the order back? keep it? use it instead of the intended thing? Did what she got turn out to be an even better choice than what she had actually ordered?
Was the item meant for someone else? maybe a gift?
