Well, it's Friday and since I'm still rather occupied with running the Hinckleyville garage sale, I invited someone new from my neighborhood to drop by and tell you about my favorite customer so far -- a sort of garage-sale-version of "Overheard at the Show":
It is, without question, the African gentleman who stopped by to explain that God led him to my sale because he's starting a ministry and we have exactly what he needs.
I was pleased to help out, selling him a like-new 4-input amplifier with microphone and speakers for 5 dollars below the asking price -- which was already a steal!
But I was less pleased when he actually stole a pair of sunglasses.
I guess I don't really understand the term "starting a ministry".
At least there was another shopper in the garage at the time who witnessed it all and we shared a good laugh. And a good laugh is definitely worth the 25 cents the theft cost me.
But I'd kinda like my 5 dollars, please.
