Garage Sales...I can live without em....

THANK GOD the garage sale is over. No more digging out, pricing, or selling! We met some really nice people that like to buy other peoples junk... but a couple just wore me out! One guy comes up, (I'm not telling you his ethnic origin) and said how much for the whole table of clothes....there were shorts, and tons of shirts on there. We were selling everything for a $1 at that point. So I said $50...and he said $20...I said NO and was ready to go about my busines...we were so cheap on stuff I hate to barter... So his friend that was with him said, are ready for this??.... she said he wants to buy them all to send to Mexico... I just about flipped a lid.... it is one thing for us to give Americans bargains, but to give Mexico a bargain....what kind of bargain do I get when the cruise ship pulls up and I step off the boat? Are they giving me a shirt for 2/$.25???? I don't think so... so I told him sure, I've got some shirts for you...so I went through my many piles of clothes and found every free t-shirt that anyone in my family has ever gotten. Then I put them up there and charged 2/.25 I got $4 out of him and felt like that was one heck of a bargain seeing as we had gotten them free....
It was a full day of that crap on Saturday.... I had really gotten my fill of it by 9am... So needless to say by the time I made it to Walmart yesterday I didn't have my smiley face on to deal with foreign people and their 19 kids they drag along with them....
