    Talk about hot deals!!!



    Found this on Facebook For Sale items. $20.00? Hot deal? Meet on the corner of? Sounds like the merchandise might be hot, real hot! If someone gets this, I'd sure like to know, but then again so might the Sheriff's Department.

    You would think that they would have it fit more money, $20 seem low for even falling off the back of the truck discount. They may not know what they have and just want to get rid of it

    Just wait till you die, and family has a giant yard sale. I can hear it now. Those foreign made red blades are $2 each, or three for $5. That Forrest blade (never heard of them,) will set you back a buck. But now those Skil brand blades will cost you $5 each. This may be the case here.

    I thought along similar lines to Bruce, except divorce (had a friend this happened to with his clothes, exercise equipment, sports, hunting, and fishing gear). I'll take $20 for anything that takes two people to move and $5 a handful for as much as you can carry.

    Re: Talk about hot deals!!!

    When I went through the divorce wars of a quarter century ago, my former wit.. uhh, wife, invited people to come and take anything they wanted that was in my shop for whatever they wanted to pay. I was away from home weeks at a time as a truck driver, working as hard as I could to make money to pay off our bills. Those friendly freeloaders not only removed many of my tools and machines, they also removed the 10 x 10 overhead insulated garage door, and the shop lighting, then proceeded to remove the 200 amp service panel, fed from the house panel, by cutting the wires outside of the box, removing it complete with breakers and wires sticking out from it. We were married 27 years, and that was the best thing that happened in those 27 years. I had less after 27 years than I had before we married. So this raises the question, "Why does divorce cost so much?" BECAUSE IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY!
