Cheap people suck!

OK, not the nicest title I realize. BUT-you would not believe this guy I had in my garage. So, he has a handful of items, MAYBE totaling $10. So he asks if I will take 25 cents for everything. I, thinking he is joking, laugh and say yeah right. Dead serious, no smile, he asks if I will take 50 cents. Again, thinking he is joking, laugh and say maybe tomorrow. Since at this time, he is not smiling nor laughing at his own joke I see he is completely serious...you've GOT to be kidding me! I told him that I paid $15 for the baby pj's alone and that I will not take less than $1.00 for those and certainly will not part with $10 worth of stuff for 50 cents. So then he says, alright, 75 cents for the whole lot...what is wrong with this man??? I tell him no, he gets ticked, says FINE and throws it all down. As he walks away he says, this was for a church donation anyway...he goes to church? What a christian like attitude!!! And his wife is still shopping like nothing is wrong. My mom and I looked at each other in disbelief. Then my mom blurts out, "ok Tina, now you can go mark everything down." That made me laugh. I am one to bargain for a deal but that man was CHEAP. Sheesh!



I did manage to squeeze out a page for Crop Addict. I'm hoping to work on stuff tonight.

TOTALLY know what you are talking about! We had a garage sale last summer and towards the end we were telling people that we were ready to deal. We said DEAL - not give stuff away to you for the money that you found in your couch cushions! Dear LORD! What is WRONG with people?

Ypu should have berated his wonderful 'Christian' behavior at about 80 - 90 decibels. When I think someone is going to try to grind me at my church sales, and they are usually clutching and devaluing what they aren't going to get for free, I call the dog over. Then I start growling, lol.
