|This would look good |
with all our coats draped across it
I did like this item pictured here. It would work beautifully in the space that is our hallway. Unfortunately, it was listed for $1600 or so. I don't remember the exact amount. I'm sure there was some wiggle room built into it but I really didn't have the money for such a lovely piece of woodwork.
However when the store proprietors told me the price I said it was out of my budget. He asked me what my budget was and I said I wasn't sure. I said that because I didn't have it in my mind how much we thought we'd have to spend on the Ikea Hack Project I've mentioned here.
That apparently was the wrong thing to say because Mr. Personality decided that it was wasting his time by breathing the same oxygen and occupying the same zip code.
"You don't have a budget," he said. "You are wasting my time." He went on to mumble a few more things about how he doesn't have time for this because he's going out of business.
A couple of things. First, when someone says the item is out of the budget it just might be their polite way of saying your shit is really overpriced.
Second, blaming customers for your failure to succeed in business is wrong on so many levels.
Third, your wife -- if you have a wife -- is undoubtedly sleeping with other people because she has long regretted the moment she ever gave you a blowjob.
