Someone from one of the Facebook resell groups I belonged to was selling a dining set. This was the picture posted. The person wanted $30 for it.
I picked up the set and I was horrified by what I saw. The apartment I went to looked like a scene straight from the TV show "Hoarders". The place was packed with trash, and the carpet was gray (but I could tell it was once light brown). I took a quick glance at the dining set and decided to purchase it. The man helped me load the pieces into the back of my minivan.
Upon arriving home, my husband was not at all please by what he saw. He pointed out all of the things that were wrong with it. Upon a closer inspection of the chairs and table, I had to agree that I should have asked man to lower the price even further.
