If you know me.....and you should.
You'd know I hate to wait in line.
I do however like FREE stuff so (then) I'll wait in line
as needed. The other day posted
on the classifieds was posted
a local Marriott was remodeling
and everything in the rooms was to go.
To go FOR FREE!!
The ad stated to bring your own
tools and own man power. Being unemployed
I was game. I went down and the building was
was circled w/ U-Hauls. I was a small fish in a big pond!
I saw the very long line and waited. I made friends
w/ the woman next to me. We chatted as item after item
was unloaded from the building. She saved my place while I
snuck in a back door!! It is a weird feeling to be in a dark and
deserted hotel alone. So first let me tell you what was up for grabs!
The lamps, The desk. A buffet (the tv is sitting on) It is boosting a granite top.
The window coverings. The bed frames and head boards.
Door knobs. Art in the bathrooms. Oh and the red/orange side chair and ottoman. OH and HUGE
beautiful beveled glass mirrors in the bathrooms. Night stands too.
Oh and a duel layered computer desk.
So the way it worked was when you got to the head of the line the "man in charge"
would open a room and you could take what you wanted.
I noticed that some people also got to take what others left too.
Some people were after the metal. Door knobs and bed frames.
Someone people wanted the art. Others wanted only lamps
and easy things to carry.
Others wanted whatever they could get their hands on.
It was a grab and dash for sure.
Everything was clean, in great repair and SUPER heavy
duty quality. (and just plain heavy!!) Sadly after and hour and realizing
I had none of the tools or any of the braun needed. I left.
I did though come home knowing what I should do next time
so I can make a HUGE killing!!
Next time...you should go too!!!
