Yard Sale UPDATE!!!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So I am out and about today I spy a yard sale. I roll up the lady has everything nicely laid out and good prices. Lots of tables which I was looking for.

An then I saw her set her lap top down and come to speak to me. I said sell me your lap top I'll give you $5. She said no she needs it for work and school. I laid into her telling her if she is poor and is having a yard sale she shouldn't be sitting on her laptop. She should be kissing my ass for even looking at her shit.

I told her no legit job or school would allow you to use a laptop I offered her $20 she still wouldn't take it. What a fucken bitch!!!

She showed me in her home where she was selling her couch, china hutch, 2 large office desks and a very large coffee table.

I saw she had a TV with a XBox I offered her $30 for the TV and XBox she refused to sell it saying it was the kids. Umm bitch you shouldn't have nice things. You are poor and trying to sell things you should take any offer some one gives you.

Umm poor people who are running yard sales shouldn't have lap tops and nice things. 

If she is needing money why wouldn't she sell me her laptop or her kids XBox and TV.

Such trashy people!!!


I don't care if it was a gift or the kids worked for it. I have learned on here POOR PEOPLE SHOULDN'T have NICE THINGS. It is always said first thing that should go is gaming systems, TV's, cable, Internet and cell phones. Every tme I read a post and some one say they are hurting for money. You all say they should sell their computers, gaming systems, and ect. Why are you all being so bitchy about what I did and learned from you all. I wanted this lady to know what others think. Reason I know she was poor is she told me they were downsizing do to her poor old husband getting laid off and they were avoiding having to get any kind of aid.

I sell stuff I don't need all the time just to keep out clutter and keep my home looking fresh. I also buy stuff from others occassionally when I am looking for things that are hard to find and that I want but don't want to spend lots of money on.

I am struggling a little bit financially, but I am definitley not white trash... and I am a teacher and work for a school that gave all of the teachers a laptop to use, as long as they are employed by the district. If I was to quit, I would have to give it back to the school. It is mine to use for work, not mine to keep or sell if I choose. They also gave me an ipad to use for work and with my students. Again, not truly mine to sell.

OP, your statements are ignorant. People should not have to sell anything they don't want to. Maybe the woman was just trying to declutter and have a yard sale. If her kids want their xbox, and it is not for sale she does not have to give it to you... and legitimate businesses and schools do give electronics to staff and students to use....

educate yourself, lady. And don't be greedy trying to get other people's stuff for such a low price.

No story and not a lie. No need to lie about the shit going on with the scummy poor people.

Quoting two4one:

Sooo, did it take you all day to come up with this story? or do you fib on the fly?

 If they were scummy, why were you trying to buy their shit and since you wanted their scummy shit, what does that say about you?

OP--where do you live that this happened? Just curious. I have been to TONS of garage sales. The last one I went to was a JOKE!! She REFUSED to accept any offers! Whatever price she told you, was the price period! One guy was interested in some used tupperware containers with lids. She wanted $5.00/EACH!! WTH???? The guy said, "No way! That's too much!" He set the containers down and left! She had several cabbage patch dolls--used-they had 'wear and tear' on them. She was NOT selling them individually. She wanted $75 for all of them! She was selling no-name purses--small for $10.00 medium size $15.00 and large for $20.00!!!! And yes--they had signs of wear and tear--not all pristeen or anything! It was ridiculous! She also wanted $100.00 for a used metal dog crate! You can go buy one at my local pet store BRAND NEW for $85 for the exact, same size, model etc!
