Hi this is Mabel Jorge (Charlie's) mom the call should come on 06/17 after 5pm. Yes, that box return was torture. My son's box only had paperwork in it but the box was huge and opened. I later found out that Charlie threw his clothes away because he knew he would loose more weight and wouldn't be wearing it.. Sure enough he laughed and wrote he's got a nice 6 pack... oh my... so proud of him (and that's because Charlie was not fat to start,lol). hope to see you and your son soon(you know there is a website where all the moms from Ship 13 Div 247 go to write to each other, try that. It really helps.
