Old lady trouser-smell

Two of my lot did stints working in a local Charity shop in gap years before going to uni. And I can report that they got a LOT of new clothes in. People order them online, and then for one reason or another decide they don't want it. It doesn't fit, or isn't the colour they thought it would be, or the style is wrong...Techy and I recently bought jackets from a charity shop after being caught in heavy rain. One was a very nice, BNWT fleece. I can't understand how it would end up there, unworn!
and they can't be bothered to send it back. They literally cannot be bothered to pack it all back up and take it to the Post Office, or ask for a returns label. So they hand unworn and often quite expensive clothing to the charity shop.
I benefitted enormously in a sartorial way from their jobs.
