Things you never expect to see at a garage sale

So we recently had a garage sale. Some stuff was out on the sloped driveway and other things inside the garage. One item was an old five-wheeled desk chair, which we priced at $3.00.

A man and his wife came by and he was looking for tools, which we didn't have. On the way out, he spotted the chair and promptly sat down. He said something about having it for his weekly poker game because it was more comfortable than the folding chairs. He offered a buck and we said, sure.

As he started to leave, he said something about getting it to the van and thank you, etc. I said, "Or you could ride it down to the van."

The look he gave me was worth the $2 we gave up. He grinned, sat down and rolled downhill in the chair, much to the displeasure of his wife, who looked as if this was her normal day life with him.
