Default DAMNITTTTTT

okay so i placed an order with john and ordered 4 250grs a new bowl and a razan hose...i was really looking forward to it...so today the post dude comes to my door with a huge box..and me like an idiot i have a smile on my face because i was exited. Little did i know..i was getting custom taxed for 132$ ..so i refused the package and now im not sure if i should pay the 132 or send it back..i live in canada,quebec btw. So with the curency and shipping price i payed 140$ canadian total for the order ...plus 132 for the taxes..it would be insane for me to pay almost 300$ for 4 250grs and a hose..so any ideas on what i should do ?

Well, I don't agree with Negs descriptor, that does suck a lot man. How close are you to the border, as in could you find someone to pick stuff up from just on the cheap side of the line? I live in Vermont during the summer, so who knows - we could work something out if you have no resolution by then. Course, then there may be taxes involved in bringing it over the boarder yourself...

Anyway, just food for thought. Keep us posted, and good luck!

which boarder do you use? Its a little further, but they never do a thorough check at the main Vermont boarder going north.

I've been to a few hookah shops in Montreal - the bars seemed pretty good, but the shops were god awful every time. cheap, plastic, touristy crap.

yeah man, I go up to montreal now and then for a few days with a girlfriend - stuff like the comedy festival is always awesome. Its a great town, but the number of hookahs in shop windows is deceiving because the only good smoke is in bars. Oh well, still a great town!

he may have, or he could have forgot or still listed it so they charged you, plenty of reasons, also it may have had his company name on it so they might have voided the gift note on it, shoot him an email and see if he just forgot or something

LISTEN UP. We will not talk about ways to skirt tax laws. It is illegal and we will not condone it. This is against the forum rules, this is a public warning to all. Read and heed!
