Getting what you paid for..........

*****remembering a while back I stopped at one of those
giant type yard sales where you park in a farm field and
dodge cow shit so you can give some guy $5.00 a head to get
in to buy some cheap ass crap that they couldn't sell in the
stores legally, only to find some crap you gave to the goodwill
store is now sell for 3 times what you paid for it to begin with;
now as I am trying to work my way around to the tool vendors
I am now dodging Raul and Rosita in their Sunday best as
Mom & Pop argue over pricing of a 75 cent toy....geeezh

*****dam almost forgot I bought an extention cord the
packaging label indicates it is 100ft long but when I went to
us it I found out it was only 72.5ft long, now I'm twenty miles
from that dump that is only open on Sundays, so screwed
again never fails....

I'm going to go measure mine. I'll bet it's longer than yours.

I can't tell if I'm dealing well with life these days or I just don't give a shit any more.
