I believe that certain behaviors are manifested only in thrift stores. I believe some people allow themselves to misbehave in a thrift store because, to them, a thrift store is not a “real” store: everything in it is used and/or old, so it is not worth any respect. [I feel like Rodney Dangerfield, now :-)].
In a previous post I wrote about customers leaving “gifts” in our store. This time I took pictures; they cover a period of a couple of weeks.
These gifts are just abandoned in the store, without any effort to find a trash can.
And then there is the donor who believes someone will use an item in this condition. Of course it never made it to sale floor.
Need I say anything more?
