John on the Sunset Coast BS: Yard sales... a nickel? You serious? (38) RE: BS: Yard sales... a nickel? You serious? 18 Aug 14

Gnu, this is nothing new (pardon the homophone).

Many years ago, pre home computer, we had a garage sale. One of the items for sale was a working office manual typewriter. A recent immigrant went through our treasures; everything she pointed to she offered a dime, including the typewriter. My wife and I got a big kick out of her, and often when passing a garage sale, one to the other of us would say, "Dime?", and have a good chuckle.

Fast forward about forty years; the joke's on us. We still have the damned Underwood, because hardly anybody wants a typewriter these days. We could have gotten a cup of coffee for it, but missed out.
