Having a whinge

You know what gets me a little mad?
A charity op shop asking for $8 for a stinky old t shirt.
You know who you are! There was one in Sth Melbourne today and my local one in Yarraville is doing it too. My local one also sells 'new' items ie made in China sort of cheap stuff, not what an op shop does, that's not recycling! We don't need more crappy garments, that will then be donated back and you will charge twice the original price. The Sth Melb one says on the tag that "your purchase helps people in need"- der, people in need usually shop there too! A lot of people bag Salvo's and Savers for charging more because they pay people to work there, I will gladly pay a bit more to help out people who need a job and have no other skills and get off their butt and work, but charging heaps to get people in wealthier areas to pay more is a scam, as far as I'm concerned.
Just wanted to get that off my chest.
