Save Tolstoy For When They’re Eight

, , , | Right | July 2, 2021

I’m having a yard sale to get rid of all of my old junk. An elderly lady checks out my things and picks up a book.

Lady: “How much for this?”

Me: “$5.”

Lady: “That’s way too much for a book! Can’t you do with 75¢?”

Me: *Surprised* “No, ma’am. That book is brand new, and I can’t give it for 75¢. $5 is the lowest.”

Lady: *Upset* “But it’s for my grandson’s birthday! He’s turning seven and I’m in tight with money right now. Can’t you just give it to me for lower?”

I know she’s lying, because there is no way a seven-year-old could read a book that thick and complicated.

Me: “Ma’am, I keep telling you, it’s $5, no lower. I’m sorry I can’t do lower even though it’s for your grandson.”

She attempted to throw some stuff off my tables and yelled rude things at me. She stomped off, nothing in hand, sassy-like, got in her car, and drove away angrily.
