What attributes does a good-quality olive have?

Sometimes when I get non-canned olives, they are a bit soft or mushy, instead of firm and juicy, and may have darkened, indented spots. The flavor doesn't seem to be greatly affected.
Are these qualities generally considered defects? If so, would it be fussy for me to complain about them or return such olives to the seller? Or, if its normal, then how do you identify an olive thats gone bad?
