The annoying side of the basement sale

Posted by Meghan in Hey Salers, Sales We've Had | Comments Off on The annoying side of the basement sale

As Jenny mentioned, our basement sale was great. However, besides the guy showing up two days early, there were more than a few other annoying incidents that she neglected to mention. Most people were great, but some of them were driving us crazy with behavior such as the following:

  • People came an hour early (the line was huge).
  • Someone stole one of the planters in front of my house!
  • After we let 10 people in some folks demanded (and I mean verbally upset DEMANDED) to be let in, and when we told them “no” they threatened to leave. This was a farce, since we knew in the middle of March no one else is having a sale. (O.K. unless someone died, you got me there!)
  • Complained that it was too dark. It’s a basement, lady.
  • One confused woman lost her coin purse in our “free box,” then made me spend 20 minutes helping her look for it.
  • A couple wanted to purchase one of the book shelves, so I had to take everything out of it, moved it over by the door, and then they decided not to buy it.
  • Another woman had me help her out to her car with her stuff, she was old and I was fine with helping, but then she asked me to rearrange all of the items in her car for her (no, I’m not kidding).

Still, it was an awesome sale.
