as far as covering the racks, have you tried saying, god forbid, "excuse me, would you mind if I look at that rack, thanks..." or is it just easier to kick the guy out of the way...
Now if he's trying on EVERY coat, he might have no idea what size he is, tried telling him where the label is? tried giving him an idea of his size to get started? course not... he's in the way... just harass him...
As far as thr guy trying on shirts, chances are he was after one for himself... ever consider he might have next to no money (thrift stores were traditionally not hangouts for flippers) he might have travelled a good distance (gas costs $$) and not want to have to bring it back... but most of all... he might not know there's a changing room... but why would we tell him...?
no offence, but some people in this thread should be ashamed of their attitudes...
i was gonna let this go,but im having a slow day so i will enlighten you.

you are either very naive or incredibly ignorant.
i see you are from the mid west,i dont know what kind of hayseed utopia you live in,but i live in toronto.
an amalgamated city of close to 5 million people and its a fucking zoo,im talking prison rules on the street when driving (boy racers,general shit heads) ,in the bars (more shit heads,i used to be a bouncer i know what i speak of) and even in the thrifts.
this happened just last night 2 dead and 21 people shot including a 22 month old at a BBQ,at a fucking BBQ okay
anyway i hit 8 stores today and this is what i saw,third store a guy cut in line in front a of older lady with a huge pile in her cart (mind you she should have let him in .im sure she would have if he asked) but he didnt he just cut in.
she asked him why he did that and he told her to mind her own "damn" business,which ironically was being in line to pay for her wares.
in the fifth store a guy scored a really nice Pioneer receiver.he put it down for a split second on the counter in front of the cash to look for his wallet (the thing weighs 30 ponds) when another guy scooped it up.
last i saw they were still in a tug of war over it with the asshole proclaiming "possession is nine tenths of the law rule".
now i will get to my own personal experiences,remember the guy who was trying on suits in the aisle?
i politely asked him if he could move it so i could take a look at whats underneath,his response : "wait your turn"
my response :his shit flying across to the next aisle.
second guy who did that about 6 months later,actually told me to go fuck myself after i asked him why he doesnt use the change room instead of blocking the whole aisle.
again his shit flew across aisle and hes lucky he didnt get a punch in the face.
the cart blocker,he was at the end of the aisle and i was trying to get out of it (the freaking thing was like a mile long) i politely asked him if he could move it.
his response," wait or go back the entire aisle if you want to get to the next one",my response :a fucking kick to the cart.
second guy with a cart,this was about two weeks ago.
i asked if he could move it so i could get through,his response: he just looked at me smirked and ignored me
you know what my response was.
maybe i made it sound like this happens every week,it doesnt but it does happen.
you ask why would someone not move when you politely ask them to,who the fuck knows probably the same missing chromosome that makes people take shit out of your cart and put stuff in it.
some people are just fucked.
so let me ask you madmacs,how would you deal with those situations?would you just hold your cock in your hand or be a man?
see unless you are in this FULL time you dont know the FULL picture,taking a weekend stroll to your local thrift is not the same as 40-50 hours a week and hitting 12 stores a day.
ask DM7 as nataku,ask mainy...theres some crazy shit out there,so get off your fucking high horse and stop pontificating.
another couple of examples,
a good friend of mine is a glass/ceramics ,Gold/silver picker in thrifts.
there is a very attractive female picker who accused him and a few other guys of sexual harassment and assault to get them banned and t get rid of the competition,it actually backfired and now she is banned from every VV in north america because he is gay so it kinda didnt add up in court when he sued her ass for defamation.
this one i was actually witness to: about a month ago,a girl put down her brand new Samsung Note on the counter to pay for her stuff when her phone went missing,she accused this middle age guy who was carrying a bible no less,he denied it but then she had the bright idea of calling her phone with the store phone sure enough it started ringing the katy perry song is his breast pocket.
the guy put her in a head lock and he had to be restrained till the cops came,i think he was charged with theft,assault and something else.
anyway,just some fun stuff that happens in thrifts.
