    futuremyth is right on. You can call people out without going 80s bad guy businessman on them. If someone said something like that to me in that way, I'd laugh in their face. It wouldn't break me down at all. I'd realize I was an infinitely better human being and I'd ban the prick from the store.

    If this doesn't make you love @Jompso I don't know what will. Also, this sounds like Donald Trump biz rhetoric and I love it.

    Agreed. Definitely not a cool move, though I'm certainly not condoning the GW employee being an asshole for no reason.

    I worked in a goodwill for a few years in college and my sister is a current manager at one. The issue employees have with eBay sellers is a lot of them are assholes. You might be super polite, so just kill them with kindness and eventually they'll be cool. A lot of sellers though push employees out of the way to get at carts, demand special treatment, and make no effort to be good customers. If you're awesome and employees see that you will get tips and help.

    I'm not sure if there is such as thing as Semi Thriftening, but that might describe my trip to the estate sale. BUT, I am going back this afternoon. Mostly, because they had a CAMERA ROOM. Seriously. And Most of it was underwater camera equipment.

    Take a look at this:

    These pictures show about half of the camera equipment in the house.

    My wife bought a tripod. Just a tripod for $20. They retail for $1300 and sell on ebay for $500-700.

    So, perhaps when I go back to the sale, I'll have the thriftening in full force.

    I definitely had it in part.

    Here is a group shot of the stuff so far:

    If you are interested in wine or wine glasses, you'll know what kind of a find these are because they are made by Riedel (and there are 26 glasses).

    More to come later.

    Plus, I need to report on the mini thriftcation/ anniversary in Oklahoma City this past weekend.

    The thrifting was okay. But, we were excited to get the day started each day with this:


    WAFFLE HOUSE!
