Do you go to garage sales?

Why do people throw stuff around with NO respect?!
Why do people steal stuff that cost .50 - $1.00!! Is it really worth it?!
If something is organized perfectly making it easy to find the sizes you want AND the type of clothes (pants/shirts/outfits (matched together!)/PJS) does it not make you appreciate even a LITTLE the people that put the work into it!?
(I expected them to rummage thru stuff, but some of this behavior is RUDE! and disrespectful!)
Today I am reminded of just how senselessness can hurt..
It just plain out HURTS seeing our stuff being tossed- unmatching stuff to buy only the shirt, people trying to trick you (switch $ tags), STEALING, giving you a dirty look when you tell their kid not to play with breakables like action figures (nicely).
Today I made about $600.00 + and still have FRI/SAT .. Why am I not happy? Why do I feel so angry and disrespected?!

  • Yes I love them and I also have them from time to time. I always respect the sales people and expect the same when I have them.

  • Hugs for you. Sorry that you feel this way. I felt like that the very first time that I had a garage sale, so the next time I had one, I tried to hang as much stuff as I could on hangers. I had a few racks, and the rest of the clothes that I had on hangers I layed them across the car. Good Luck If you decide to continue.

  • I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience! If it upsets you so much, maybe put a little less effort into organizing the stuff for sale, and maybe it won't bother you so much?

  • Because people don't care and have the "it's junk at a yard sale" attitude.
