I can sum up everything you need to know about garage sales in four lines:
(Scene: buyer picks up a beautiful child’s designer dress that still has original price tag of $30.00 on it)
Buyer: How much for this dress?
Seller: It’s $5.00. It’s still brand new, never worn.
Buyer: (thinking) I’ll give you a quarter.
Seller: *blink* (long pause, then sigh) Ok, fine.
And that just about covers it all. Yet somehow, we did manage to make a little bit of money, and clear some junk out of the house, so the day wasn’t a waste.
