I Hate the Local Paper

Last week I placed an ad with our local paper for a garage sale. The ad clearly states (as does my receipt) that the ad would come out in the 05/12/05 edition of the paper and that the garage sale would be Saturday, May 14th.

I read the (05/05/05 edition) paper this morning and there is my ad in the garage sale section clearly stating that Saturday (no date) we would be hosting a garage sale!

Pissed off garage salers have been drivng by my house all morning.

People are stupid. What time did they start driving by? If I had a yard sale, I'd have an "early birds pay double" policy.

No early birds, just people slowing down, realizing that there is no sale, then moving on. The real problem is that we actually are having the sale next weekend, so will the fact that I have pissed off some garage-salers this weekend influence how comes by next weekend?

They'll be back. They're like crack addicts.

ha! Eden is right. Even if they're angry, they'll be back. They can't help themselves. ;)
