    Seems to be slowing down though. I think you know what you have to do. Head to The Green Mill, ask for a guy named JJ Watts. Tell him that you want a guy should meet with an unfortunate accident. Then, be first in line at the estate sale.

    That's because Waffle House is really a secret government front run by the NSA. All this mess about the phone tapping is nothing. They have had everyone in Waffle Houses around the Country under surveillance for years! They can accurately predict where the billionth waffle is sold because all of them are being watched!

    You don't think some of those freaky looking people that work at Waffle House are normal, do you? Did you ever see Men in Black where the aliens work as Postal Employees? The folks at Waffle House are not aliens, but they are government agents.

    Here's proof, next time you are in a Waffle House, tell the waiter that "The Eagle's Nest is largest in North America." They should say, "actually, I believe its the Condor." If they do that, you will eat for free. Its the secret NSA code that allows an agent to seek refuge in a Waffle House. In order to keep up the cover, you'll order but not be required to pay.

    Thanks to everyone who makes this thread so interesting to read. I needed to put together a wardrobe after losing some weight, and found in the process that I really like thrifting. So I’ve been lurking for a while, reading some older posts in this thread, and trying to learn. However, at this point, I wonder if I’ll ever find out if Wes won that grill…

    Wes got a grill. Wendy cheated but SF gang pitched in to get him a grill. So in the end Wes won.

    Just ordered this....well, maybe. Wasn't sure how to use a visa gift card online, there was no place to put in the remainder payment method online. So, chances are it will not go through, and I will have to call it in tomorrow. Hopefully they will still honor the sale price.

    40% off original retail after 4th of July sale and promo code I found online. Still gotta get a cover for it, but I'll shop out a better deal on one of those later.

    Thanks y'all. I'll let you know when it arrives.

    I'm really excited, we have never had a brand new grill before!


    And I absolutely love and appreciate the grill. Anyone who follows my instagram can tell you that I use it about 6 days a week.
