160 Economic Stress

Fidgeting nervously
at the counter,
the woman waited
until the clerk was alone.
Pulling an object
from her purse,
she barked,
“I’ve never bought resale before.”

If you wish to take the challenge, here is a quick look at the rules.

For the original Sunday 160 post click here.

The Sunday 160 only uses 160 characters (including spaces).
Keep on schedule - post Sunday.
Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
Visit at least one other Sunday 160.

I like resale - good deals are okay by me. Was inspired to write this while shopping resale and people watching.

I hardly ever buy retail unless I'm buying ranch at Wallyworld! ;)

Resale rocks!

Caty said...

Enchanted Oak said...

I'm a bargain hunter from way back. I hate paying full retail price. So to me this was a funny 160, and she deserves her comeuppance.

Maude Lynn said...

And, then, she got over herself!

Good one, Monkey Man!

Dianne said...

Ha! And some people don't want the "cooties" seriously. I haven't bought anything for myself new in years, except hiking shoes/boots as you can tell from my blog.
Mine is up HERE
Have a primitive primate week

It's amazing how many buttons you pushed with this one- just reading the comments brought a measure of insight.

Well done!

I've been buying resale proudly my whole life. Now the call it "recessionista chic". I call it, "nothing wrong with being poor."
