    Favorite quotes from this ad...
    "I'VE BEEN OFFERED $1,500 by TONS of Antiques, but I didn't want to sell it then. SO THIS IS A GREAT DEAL."

    When the Antiques start talking and making offers it is time for me to get out of the business....

    "
    AFTER REFERRING TO eBAY ITEMS WOULD TOTAL WELL OVER $1,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Makes no sense at all

    "ALSO HAVE A SINGER SEWING MACHINE AS WELL THAT'S FOR SALE AS WELL."

    Well, that is certainly good news...

    I guess there are a lot of antiques with no financial sense. Could have to do with the fact that they're (typically?) inanimate objects...

    Oh that cranky Victoria! She's always making furniture talk. ... And give out prices too! $1000 here, $1500 there, here an offer there an offer, you make an offer, ... we can work it out. Here is an offer Vicky, how about you take the talking furniture and the sewing machine to La La Land on your next visit. Ok? I bet it is real soon. I hear you can get retail there. You don't know if it works or not? Well the sugar plum fairies can help you when you get there.
    Tra la la, of to the bank you go now....
    Geesh! I think it is wearing off on me now...
    Ok, who hasn't wanted to say something like that to a seller (or buyer) or two???

    I don't have to look very hard to find something to post on here.
    I wonder if they had it plugged in to that outlet?
    Seems like stupid is everywhere...
    Oh, the incompetence I see on my job...
    drivers.....
    Today:
    DH wrote a check to my son.
    DS took the check to the bank.
    The teller said there wasn't enough money in the account.
    Teller kept the check.
    Teller deducted the money from our account.
    Call the fraud squad.
    At any rate, take the money out of the bank and put it in a sock - probably just as safe.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You'd think the picture on the manual would give it away...

    LOL Miriam. Maybe that is the problem with all of these ads. Ah, if it were only that simple.
    Windblown, It is one of my biggest pet peeves too. Another one is that they have an ad for a machine and only show the cabinet.
    Hang in there Miriam. And when you talk to them next tell them that Jesse James used to do that too but he had to use a gun.

    AH - don't start that one... I have direct deposit from my job and I have messed up the on line program so bad I have to go to the bank to find out if I have any money. I just wish they would send some kind of paper out once in a while tells how much money I make... Kind of depressing. Who knows how much money the bank has stolen. I think I just need to use a sock.
