Duh?

I just wonder how many people had to attempt to return their damaged purchases before Goodwill decided to bite the bullet & hang this sign on their door.

  1. I would never even THINK of returning anything to the Goodwill. I mean, it's THE GOODWILL. If I do return anything, I just re-donate it.

    I'd love to see what people try and return. Or maybe, I'd be totally traumatized.

  2. Oh, I've thought of returning stuff to Goodwill, I just know I can't... the shirt I bought for my husband for the disco party that he refused to wear on account that it was actually a women's shirt. It is a size XXL and gold and I thought for sure he would never guess about it not being a man's shirt.... he knew instantly. It was the way shirt buttons work that foiled me. So I'm stuck with a gold lamé disco shirt that soooo doesn't fit me and I can't return it and I now just stare at it resentfully whenever I'm in my closet. Three dollars... wasted.

  4. Wouldn't it be embarrassing to ask for you 50 cents back? Some people have no shame...

  5. My girlfriend appalled me by declaring her intention to return to Goodwill a purse that turned out to be a fake rather than designer item. It was difficult to explain why this should not be done. She's from Eastern Europe, with English as a fourth language, she returns about 90 percent of everything she buys that isn't perishable. SHe doesn't have the cultural experience that says 'don't stiff the charity." But once I explained to her finally that Goodwill wasn't just a greedy for-profit company that took free stuff from suckers to resell for cash, she grudgingly agreed not to attempt a return.
    Point is, yeah, you need the sign. Not that it would have stopped her if she'd been determined to do it, but not everyone packs so much sheer bloodymindedness into a small package.
