I wanted to buy a Cole Haan tote at Nordstrom Rack the other day, but they had written a number - six digits or so - in permanent black marker in a very noticeable spot on the lining, near the zippered pocket. I am sure this is done to prevent some type of scam (it's only done on some bags, not all) but it really annoys me. I do not want to buy a bag that has been defaced in this way. True, it is on sale, but even so....I still expect to get a bag in brand-new, unmarked condition as the condition of the bag has nothing to do with why it is on sale. Does this bother anyone else? Does it stop you from buying the bag?
