Like. Looking good.
I'm not sure I agree with this analysis. Could depend on state law and/or civil versus criminal. At the very least, it cannot be that the pocket of someone else's property (be it the store's or mine) is a public place. And as for the buttons thing, the dude meant the spare buttons, in the little baggie. Not the ones attached to the jacket. Either way I've already lost sufficient interest to mount a cogent rebuttal. Plus, nobody's paying my fee.
As for why there are so many lawyers on the thrift thread: a) we don't get paid as much as you think we do; 2) we're smart enough not to pay retail, and d) we're probably one of the few professions that still has to wear the stuff found at these shops on any regular basis.
I wasn't asking why there's so many, just pointing out y'all like to argue... at length... Dig answered this in one word
