Tonight's stupid resume trick

I'm reading through resumes again.

Tonight's doozie candidate took the posted job description, reworded it just a tiny bit, and then put it at the top of her resume as a "Summary of Qualifications."

I fell for it for about the first two lines, then recognized my wording.

Ethics question

A local store has a reasonable return policy: return the product in new condition within 30 days, and with your receipt, and get your money back. Since this store sells primarily electronics, it's easy enough to use something for a while then return it.

Do you consider it ethical to buy something from there with the full intention of returning it after you use it for a couple of weeks?
