    Next solid item you thrift, search that dude out, then proceed to tell him how much your gonna make off of it. Then downplay the number like it's pennies even though you'll both know it's half his weekly take home after taxes. Then tell him you'll probably make more off the shit you stole the other week than what your holding, then passively say "told you you should have checked the tapes." Then walk out.....If a man is going to come at you for you doing nothing wrong but your job, the proceed to assassinate character and insinuate felonious behavior, you have every right to emasculate this man in a manner that will leave him totally hating his life. People need to learn their boundaries and to watch their fucking mouths and it sounds like this guy needs a fucking taste.

    @Jompso thats cool. we both find great value in direct experience. but i will say i've learned a bunch, gotten ideas, rejected ideas, etc from this thread without hardly asking anything.

    somebody should post a carrot top routine with the contents of the KnowBox.

    Your absolutely right, I have acquired a great deal, I cannot speak enough to what this thread has brought to me and my thrifting, I sorta overlooked it, however I also categorized it in the self reliance category too, because although you are gaining knowledge from others, it is on you and only you to retain it and put it to use. But your absolutely correct.

    Wow, its different if he catches someone stealing and says what he did, but to just say that with no evidence? I am not sure how I would respond, but I know I wouldnt leave there without completely tearing this guy (in womens clothing) a new one. I am not a confrontational person either but when people like to run there mouth they should be able to back it up or at least face the consequences.

    I'd just ask to speak with his supervisor. And if he is the supervisor, ask for the number of his district manager. If they go back and look through how much you spend there, they'll tear the guy a new asshole for you.

    Shout outs to my boy, troika for helping to id these. The insoles are gone but in great once worn condition with margom soles. We think this is bottega veneta crisscross leather woven slip on sneakers. I think these might be buttero. Anyways, this is almost thrift prices. Not a bad day.

    My phone ring used to be a codec sound. Metal gear is my shit. Grew up playing the original on NES. Just picked up Phantom. Need to carve out some time to crush that
