I am NOT making this up...read on............

Are you ready for this one?????......It's a goodie! Let me just set the stage for you.....so I am in Goodwill today and spy this "must have" little cupboard WAAAAAAAAAAYYYY on the top shelf. I reach for it and it is juuuuuuusssstt out of my reach by like an inch. So I decide to ask for some help.....the first person just looked at me and walked on.... next I see a tall guy walking by and ask him but his cell phone rings so no help there. I decide to ask an employee but they can't climb a ladder, I asked another worker and they said they'd be right there...so here I am GUARDING this cupboard and warding off any potential "thrift store pandemonium" if someone dared try to take this thing ...so I am waiting...and waiting...and waiting and nobody! So I go get this stool...you've seen them....they are used to put in bathtub to sit on ...anyway....I get up on the thing and ...well here it is...the legs fold up underneath it and I am left hanging...clinging to the top shelf of the Goodwill housewares display shelving!!! Can you believe this???? A lady sees me and runs to get a chair. I am beyond embarrassed but...........I GOT THE LITTLE CUPBOARD!!! The lady that helped me get down agreed that it was worth it. I was dying....then laughing at myself because this has got to be one of the most RIDICULOUS THINGS I HAVE EVER DONE TO GET A BARGAIN! Are you still picturing this? Have you peed your pants laughing? I am reliving it all over again this moment and still can't believe I did this!! It has made me think back on all the "situations" I have got myself into ...all in the name of junk! It's been quite a ride so far!!!

Too bad there wasn't anyone recording it on a camcorder. You might could've won a prize with that.

Thanks for the great laugh. I can picture you just hanging there ready to kick anyone who dared even ask about the cupboard!! That story behind getting a great piece makes it worth even more. Have a great day. Next time, take your own stool!!!

Lisa said...

PRICELESS. I can see that happening to you and actually all of us because quite frankly, I have used certain items around to get to something on the top shelf and in return it back fired (lol). I would have done the same thing and yep I think I pee'd my pants from laughing so hard. Thanks for the laugh. I needed it.

Hugs,
Lisa
