I've had that experience and I never let the opportunity go by without giving my "expert" opinion.

It even happened with one of the magazines I donated to one local thrift. It was several years old and should have been priced on a par with other old knitting mags (fifty cents to a dollar). They had priced it at $3! I told the gals in the back room that if they continued to overprice I'd move my contributions to a thrift that people could afford.

I also found out at that same place that the women working there kept all of the good stuff for each other. When I went to poke through a bag of yarn it was snapped out from under me. When I asked why, the woman who did the snapping said that so-and-so (a uniformed volunteer) always like to have first dibs on yarn. As so-and-so was still in the building I let her know that that was insider trading and that they should be ashamed of themselves. I was met with an icy stare. I learned later that some people volunteer there for exactly that reason.
