Elizabeth has gotten a lot of useful feedback at LBYM, seems to me.

For the record, any time we've taken anything substantial from a curb (like a desk, for example), we've asked the person who owns the house. But when we've left substantial stuff at the curb, people don't usually ask us if it's okay to take it.

Elizabeth clearly labeled the boxes with the name of the charity, and people started to take them anyway. Then she caught them and apparently went back in her house before they had finished unloading all the stuff they said they'd put back. Why she would trust people who could see big labels on her stuff (whether or not they could read them) to put it all back is beyond me.
