You might be pinching too many pennies if...


Your neighbor finds a brand new pair of boots in the dumpster, gives them to you, and you wear them...even though they are BOTH LEFT!

True story. My mom's neighbor, Wayne, found a pair of Brand new $75 boots in the dumpster at the Courtland Center. So kind neighbor that he is he brought them home for my mom. However, they are both LEFT. Yes, I said LEFT, as in 2 left boots no right boot. Also important to note. They did NOT go right back into the trash. She HAS worn them. Reason? Well, they are brand new $75 boots! Doesn't matter that they are BOTH LEFT!

That makes me laugh out loud...they don't look like boots sweet Di would wear! Betcha any money someone STOLE them and threw them in the dumpster when they realized their stolen purchase was a lefty pair of boots!

it totally reminds me of the movie "best in show". one of the guys (eugene levy) had 2 left feet, literally. hilarious movie, though not for when the kiddies are around.
