Oh, How I Hate You Yard Sale

Let me count the ways.

One, you take an enormous amount of time and effort before you even begin…and after. 5 days into this deal and I still have work to do thanks to you!

Two, you make me invite strangers to my house. I don’t like people Yard Sale, especially people I don’t know.

Three, you bring these strangers here to look through my used items, items I’d just assume donate except I need some extra cash. Well, played Yard Sale. Well, played.

Four, these strangers then haggle me for an even lower price on my already ridiculously low priced items. I mean, it’s only a DOLLAR and it’s in perfect condition! You’d pay $50 if you went to the store for that!!!

Five, you have me sitting outside in the sun for 10 hours a day, 3 days in a row. I got lots of dishes and laundry to catch up on today Yard Sale. Thanks a lot. And I probably spent all the money I earned while having you on eating out since I didn’t feel like cooking since you exhausted me Yard Sale.

Six, you made me get a sunburn on my scalp of all places. That hurts Yard Sale. It really does.

Seven, I really thought things would be different this time Yard Sale. I thought I was more prepared. I thought it would be worth a little lot of hassle to make a lot little money. But you never change Yard Sale. You’re still the same. Uprooting my entire life over one weekend just to make a couple hundred dollars. Smh. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

Never again, Yard Sale. Never. Ever. Again.

    My mother was the queen of all yard sales. She would have had one every week if she could have. But the last one I had was a lot like your experience except I only made SIXTY DOLLARS for all my trouble. Forget that noise–Goodwill here I come. Goodwill karma when I go shopping for clothes is worth more than I made at that yard sale!
