2 Saturdays ago I ran over to SA. Good Ole SA. It was 40% off day. I wasn't expecting to find anything because they have been cleared out for a while. So I go in. I find a lonely Autumn Harvest 403. Look in at my album on my phone to see if I have it (yes it has gotten hat bad). I didn't. So I grabbed it. Walked around for a while and nothing else caught my eye. Then I grabbed this FireKing duel casserole stand and dishes. It was marked at $50 but with a red 50% written on it. I took it up to the counter to nicely ask if it would also be an extra 40%. She said nope.
|Already washed and put away with the other 403s|
|THH ran into it last night because I had it on the floor in the kitchen. |
A while ago he told me to keep the dishes in the kitchen, so it was his own fault.
Anyone that loves Pyrex knows the "walk-n-stalk". For you that do not it is where you casually follow someone and hope they put whatever they have back on the shelf. I do not steal out of peoples carts. carts are off limits. I staled her through clear glass, then to bric a brac, then she headed back over to collectables. I stood at the counter telling the cashier she had it. And I was trying to get the price down on the FireKing. I kept watching her out of the corner of my eye. The cashier noticed I was stalking her. She laughed and we had a good giggle over my technique.
Then… wait for it…… I see it in her hand. WHAT WAS SHE DOING? Then she carefully sets it down. My heart races. The cashier looks at me. I do my "walk really fast but don't be noticeable" kind of run. I swiped that pink off that table like a baby falling off the couch. Smooth!
|So happy, it even got an "in the car" picture!|
As I walked back to the counter I raised it in my hand and did the victory wave it in the air. At this point I could care of the cart lady saw me. It is mine. All Mine. I saw in her cart a yellow 503.
WHO IN THEIR RIGHT EFFING MIND PUTS BACK A PINK SQUARE
BAKER FOR $6 AND KEEPS A YELLOW 503?
Needless to say I was the winner. I also got the Firkeing for an even more reduced price than marked. I am good like that.
I wish I had a camera around to film myself. It must be a riot to watch.
Oh and here is the fun thing I saw at St. Vincent's about an hour later.
|It is a lamp, they wanted $12.99. They are on crack too.|
