I went to the Goodwill after work, thinking I'd get something new and cheerful to wear to the theater tonight. I found a lovely chenille sweater...a Chaus, in a gorgeous shade of red. I found a silk scarf with red hand-painted flowers on it, and I found a killer jacket in silk that looked homespun. It had all sorts of lovely colours in it.
I took all three things up to the front. I had to wait a bit, as the three cashiers were discussing something with a couple of community service volunteers. Somebody finally noticed me (I was being nice, rather than snarky and impatient, as is my wont), and started to ring up my choices. She complimented me on the lovely sweater...a deal at $4.99. The she got to the scarf. I had looked at all their scarves, and all of them were marked $1.99, so I naturally assumed that all scarves were $1.99. Not the one I chose. It, I was informed, was $3.99. I set it aside, unwilling to pay twice what I had intended for it. Then she looked at the jacket. She said, "This is a woman's blazer. It will be $8.99." There was no tag on it, and I had got it off a rack with a sign that said "Light Jackets $5.99."
The cashier didn't believe me.
So I left. Without sweater, scarf, or that lovely jacket.
Look out for the Round Rock Goodwill. They will try to rob you.
