Dragged me to KMart yesterday to help her shop for a friend of ours' bridal shower. The shower has a "Shit For The Yard" theme. I bought her a hoe...[argue] While there, I spied 2 20 gallon 5HP air compressors. Brand new Coleman Powermates. They both had 50' hoses around the handles. CLEARANCE ITEM!!! Originally $269.99. Marked down to $134.99. I've been putting off buying one, cause I need more gun stuff, but half price was too much to pass up. [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=24&t=137003]THANKS X--Kill!!![/url] I wheel the compressor (and the hoes) to the checkout. No UPC code...dammit. New computerized registers won't let you manually key in a price. Only UPC was on the hose. It rang up $6.99. I told the pimply faced kid that "The guy in that Department said the hose was free when I buy the compressor". Pretty slick, eh? Well, shit, after he calls twice for a UPC, the manager comes over and she can manually key a price in...how convenient. She says something about "What a pain it's gonna be when they sell the other one". I tell her I can help her out. "I'll give ya $200 for the both of them". "Sold" she says. Damn! What a deal! Sold one to my next door neighbor upon returning home. He was more than happy to give me $150 for it. I knew I shoulda drove the truck... You oughta seen me & the old lady stuffing those things in her Mustang...

One time I was at the K mart buying some 22 rim ammo I asked how much for a box, the lady picks up a brick and says 1.22, I said you sure , yes she says, I said since they are on sale give me 3, she did, and charged 1.22 per brick, must have been a clearence item.

What a great lady you have for bringing you to K-Mart at just the right time! You should buy her a rake and a shovel too as a reward. [:)]
