I love going to garage sales. Looking over other peoples’ junk can be fun. Sometimes I find something worth buying, but regardless how much they want for it, I try to talk them down to $1. Yes, I’m annoying in person, too.
Some garage sales attract a lot of people. Most of the people I see at garage sales are people I would never be friends with in real life: they park in a way that blocks somebody’s driveway, they step right through the garden to get to the sale tables, they get grabby, they’re in a hurry to get in and out so they can move on to the next garage sale, and they’re just generally rude.
So Eddie Lacy is having a moving sale this weekend. And he’s selling a lot of Packers gear, and a lot of laundry detergent. Seriously. I have never had more than two jugs of laundry detergent at a time, but Lacy has six large, unopened containers of Tide. Maybe Lacy just gets really dirty several times a day, or maybe he’s a hoarder…who knows.
Obviously, a lot of people are interested in a large bottle of laundry detergent for $5, because half of Green Bay descended on Lacy’s moving sale today. But what I found interesting was how polite these Green Bay people are: they’re waiting in line to get in to the moving sale. I’ve never seen such a thing for a garage sale. Green Bay fans are weird.
