Money-back guarantee

I heard a radio commercial the other day for Durex condoms, and it said they come with a "money-back guarantee."

How exactly would you go about getting your money back for something like that?

Why would you want your money back?

I am so glad I won't be working the returns desk the day someone returns a condom.

Do they pay to raise the child that comes from unwanted pregnancy? There was an attempt to sue doctors for failed tubal ligations and vasectomies for wrongful life, but the courts decided that was too much liability for a relatively low cost operation. They found the value of the child outweighed the cost so there was no damages! They obviously have not paid for private college tuition!

redmustang, that was the first thing I thought about when I thought of someone trying to return a defective condom! I suspect the Durex people were thinking about something else, though.

What claims do they actually make that you could claim against though? Do they guarantee safety from pregnancy, STD's, do they guarantee more pleasure for women from the ribbed ones? I'd like to claim on that last one if they do.

The things are always breaking on me.

Well not actually ON me you understand.

Perhaps I shouldn't put them on with my mouth, maybe the teeth are just too close? Does it say anything in the product disclaimer about teeth?

What do you think they're thinking of then Pill?

Pootle has a good point.
I don't think the fine print says they're 100% effective against anything.
Americans are too lazy to go the trouble anyway

I would love to hear the phone call from some poor sod saying it was ineffective.

Um hello, you said money back right? I now have a STD and twins on the way.

Damn that's just amazing.

One of the most difficult things to do is to take responsibility for our actions. It's no longer being honored because it is not longer being taught as a way of life. The blame shifts away from what's right or what's wrong to who has the best legal advise.

They always taught us more than one form of birth control at a time was optimum in Sex Ed and Family Planning. Enter corporate America with the almighty business money making false claims or promises.

Now, back to Pootle's comments ... THOSE were funny!!

Great comments, everyone.

Obviously there are a lot more reasons why someone would want their money back for a condom than it would appear at first glance. I didn't expect much detail from a radio commercial, but the Durex people have got to know there are people out here asking these questions. If they don't want people walking through that door, they shouldn't have opened it.
