we had a garage sale yesterday. the weather was AWFUL, so the turnout was blah. we only made a little bit of cash, but at this point- a little bit of cash is better than no cash, so it's all good. right? right.
but dude. when did garage sales turn into these total freak show parades? i mean, i had people FIGHTING in my garage over some fucking toys. i think i even heard the woman snarl at the guy and hiss and maybe bite him. who knows. but it's crazy.
and these people came to buy things so they could resell them. i swear it. and i don't like that. because i want to sell things to people who genuinely want them. or need them. and i think in all of the people who came by, there were only 2 people that i really thought were coming to get things they truly "needed." you know, like perfectly good kids clothes. and brand new shoes. i'm not going to find those on ebay today.
but the others? i felt a little used and a little dirty at the way they pawed the stuff with dollar signs in their eyes. it made me not want to have one ever again if you ask me. i'd rather just donate it all. i don't know. it was just... odd. and kinda violating.
