So, I live in a state where the people seem overly…well, cheap. I won’t mention the state because I actually like living here, but let’s just say, it is the Jello capital of the US, was founded by pioneers, has all sorts of religious rumors surrounding it, starts with a “U” and ends with a “tah”.
Okay, this is a bargain blog, but I think sometimes the people in my blessed state take it to an extreme!
I went to a garage sale this last weekend and was blown away by the stinginess of the people running the sale. I saw a stylus for sale. A nice stylus as a matter of fact. Here’s a picture of it:
I’ve been looking for a stylus just like this! I want something fine point. But I digress…
I took it up to the lady in charge and she said, $50. I blinked then said, “How much?” She repeated, “$50”. I’ve done my research, and you can buy this exact same stylus from Walmart for $35. I told her that and she said, “Then go to Walmart.” She turned away from me and went to organize all the clothes she had spread out on the lawn.
I’m all for making a quick buck, but come on lady! If you’re reading this, maybe you ought to consider the definition of a bargain.
Anyway, thanks for putting up with my rant.
What is the most ridiculous “bargain” you’ve run across? Comment below! Maybe I’ll buy the winner an overpriced stylus.
