Delusions of a Goodwill Employee

Dear Goodwill Employee Deb:

Last week, I came to your store in search of furniture for Disgruntled Husband's new office. I found a nice computer desk for $10 that would work well for us and brought the tag to you.

You rang it up and indicated that someone would help me load it in The Limo if I brought it around front. Which I did. Everything was loaded up and brought back to the new office.

This week, as I was calculating all of the expenses of the Blaze of Glory, I entered the cost of the desk, from the receipt, on to my Excel spreadsheet.

Here it is:


Did you happen to catch what I saw? Here, let me point it out for you:

Hey Deb, I'm all for discounts and everything, but you're a good 30 years older than I am. If you think I get the SENIOR DISCOUNT because you do, one of two things is happening:

1.) You are delusional if you think you look to be about the same age as me...which is 32.
or
2.) I need to do a full-on glitz pageant beauty regiment before I shop at Goodwill.

I know I wasn't looking fabulous when I went to your store that day...I believe I was wearing a black sleeveless shirt, jean shorts, sandals, and no makeup, but in no way did I look to be 55, which is what I'm assuming your "seniority" starts at.

I saw people in there wearing mis-matched crocs and faded Sea World shirts, so please assure me it was you making the mistake that day.

I don't think I'll be back at your location any time soon. And, side note, I'm about at Platinum Shopper level at Sephora.com since I discovered my discount. I'm sure they thank you.

A few years away from Botox,
The Snarky Mom

  4. Ouch! There's a difference between being snarky, which I personally happen to love, and being unappreciative or so overly sensitive you didn't notice when someone was being nice to you!

  5. I think she was just being generous, darlin'. When stuff like that happens, I'm normally giddy. Even for a few cents, which is sad.
