L.L.Bean (Long Scum)

Maine's fifth-largest employer, the outdoor goods retailer started buying out 500 of its 5000 employees and stopped contributing to its pension plan. The company also announced that it would limit its return policy to one year, saying that returned items have cost it $250mm over the last 5 years. Customers have apparently become bigger scumbags over the years, making the policy untenable; they would scour discount racks, thrift stores and trash cans with the hope of making returns and capitalizing on the company's generously lenient policy.
