lol. i know what u r saying. i like to look at things from a positive point of view. i still dont see how the manager at swf.com can say the clam looks blue bc of my t5. this was actually my 2nd order the last 2 weeks. i ordered a gold maxima last week, and it looked gold! btw, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. maybe u guys can send him some email on my behalf.
