So OP, since you've now admitted to chronic and persistent unethical behavior can we assume you will no longer start threads lecturing those with whom you disagree politically about ethics?

Or do you have a blind spot when it comes to your unethical and disgraceful behavior?

You do realize that one of the reasons for the high prices you complained about is because of you, and people like you, who practice this unethical behavior?
You brought up good points.

Calm down, fellow posters. It should be obvious this thread is as fabricated as a polyester pantsuit.

My mother used to work in fine china. She said every year customers would buy whole sets of china, use them, keep the box, then return them shortly after the holidays. Of course, they kept the receipt, too! What those customers didn't realize, or care if they did, was that the sales commission Mom earned was backed out upon returns. I don't know if its the same today, this was back in the 50's, but still, think about the other guy you are screwing around! There are places you can rent china, you know!

Talk to anyone who ever worked in retail, no shame.

If you are not trolling....


This practice is disgusting- are you bothering to wash the clothes that you have worn and returning? Or do you just bring back clothes that are soiled with your body fluids and who knows what else?

It's probably illegal and making too many returns to a store can get you flagged as a serial returner. Soon you'll be unable to return anything, even if you have the receipt.

If you feel the need to continue to do this, buy cheaper clothes or look into stores like Rent the Runway where you can actually rent dresses/special occasion outfits.

Seriously?

I would not want someone so lacking in ethics, so incapable of even realizing why doing such a thing is unethical without being told it is, to be 'teaching' children.

Teachers are one of the groups of public employees that should be held to the highest standards of ethical behavior.

A clothing store is not a library, you aren't supposed to check out clothing to use a few times and then return it!

Perhaps that is why she is only dreaming of being a teacher.

Now -- I've purchased clothing on occasion with quality issues and those went back. Bought a t shirt that fit perfectly, tag said machine wash and dry -- and it stretched out like you couldn't believe. That went back. I'm not going to spend good money on a single wear item, unless I intend to wear it once and then donate (Yeah -- I don't wear dresses anymore and if I have to buy one for something, I buy it and wash/dryclean it and take it to St Vincents.)

But to buy and return is just awful.
