God damn, what a horrible day. Hit 46 sales today.

First of all, NOBODY had videogame stuff. We either find stuff, or at least get "oh we already sold that today", but today we just got a bunch of straight "no" s. This made for a very painful and frustrating day. We almost ended the day with just the Interactor (a crappy 3rd party SNES/GEN peripheral), but managed to find the N64 games at noon.

Second of all, we missed a Phillips CD-I. This was at one of the few (maybe the only) sales that told us that they had already sold their game stuff. "Dad, did we already sell that Phillips game player?" We were pretty disappointed, because it's one of the few game consoles that we don't have. The only saving grace is the sale was pretty expensive (they were charging $50 for a Ronco Rotisserie that retails for $80 in store), so we can only hope that it went for a pretty penny. First mention of the CD-I in our yard saling career though.

Third of all, everybody was in super-wigged-out mode today. Everybody was giving us weird responses, walking in front of moving cars, just generally off their game. I've never seen so many confused old ladies in one day. Anybody that wasn't supremely confused today was in super-douche-bag mode. At our last sale, one of the customer ladies goes "Oh, are you interested in the original Sega? Oh we have tons and tons of games. Yeah tons! ...but they're in Maine. You know where you should try? Gamezone. It's a store right around the corner." Thanks for the advice lady. Ugh.

Crummiest day we've had in a long while. Even if we don't find really good stuff, it's usually a fun experience at least. Not today though, not today.
