Seriously... I have like 10 that either don't fit me or aren't the right kind for my company. Store them in a box somewhere, give them to goodwill, etc. What do you guys do?

Hopefully can get at least a couple serious answers.

Public school art teachers...the shirts make great smocks (especially for 4th-8th graders).

Goodwill
You get to write it off for buying it and then write it off for donating it...

Tie the tail of the shirt to the collar, stick it between your legs, pull the sleeves around and tie them at the waist, and proudly walk around your house in your new diaper.

Sign your sweat-stained shirts and hand them out to the wide-eyed kids in the terminal. It's like being a superstar.

The ones from my previous employer I chose to urinate on being the helped reign in profits for a corrupted CEO.

You can yard sale them or donate them. Many security guards or bus drivers (save it clowns I am being serious here) wear the same type. I had a yard sale years ago and a woman wanted as many as I had for her husband who worked as a security guard. They were having a rough time and I just gave them to her. I still remember it because she cried. The company charged him like $10 a piece for them and she simply didn't have it.

I keep them as a reminder that I'm a lot fatter than I was a few years ago. I keep thinking that someday I'll wear those old shirts again.

I give them to my special FA's/overnight bar girls so they can remember our good times.

I donate mine to the riddle kids that have so much debt they can't afford to buy them.

After years of being pressed up against a stinky back rest, I give them a proper burial.
