What I find amazing about this kind of thing is that so many freeby-chasers have internet access and pickup trucks.

Maybe it is a cultural thing but if I ever was in a financial situation that required me to go hunting for free stuff, things like a computer, internet, smartphone, and a pickup truck would be long gone, having been sold off to pay for more important stuff.

People need a zombie apocalypse. The kind of moron that loots a house that way would be the first in line yelling "I was here first, let me pass" and getting eaten/converted, then those of us that use our brains would take care of those morons.

I felt bad for them until I read the ad they posted.

Words have meaning, they're not just random letters thrown together.

Ditto, that wasn't written with much thought.

Sad for them though

Of all the Americans I've met, Texans have been the most polite, but I'm sure there will be some downright jackasses in Texas.
You are absolutely correct - on both counts.

One thing my Dad always said when I was kid -
"Texans will whip your ass if you really, really, really want them to."

They are mostly polite to a fault, but wary of insults and/or blatant disrespect.
The up-side is that they will usually offer you a gracious face-saving opportunity to fix it.
Then they will forget it.

It's the odd ass hole who will skip the formalities of the Texas Code of Conduct and simply whip your ass.

I always thought YARD sale meant in a yard and of stuff in said yard.
This is what surprises me too.

Who was the person who actually opened the damned door?

There's your culprit.
The rest were just lemmings and bottom-feeders.



Anyway that shows how much people can be morons, it says 10:00 and everyone got there early?
I bet none of those idiots would arrive early to a job interview.
American phenomenon maybe.
Put an ad in the paper stating that the sale begins at 10:00, and people will be in your driveway before sunrise.

The best way is to put signs out except at your house.
The morning of, when you have everything ready, put the sign at your place.

If you run an ad, just tell what street it will be on, and to follow the signs.
Don't put any signs up until the advertised time.



My ex-mother in law was one of these.
Early bird - gotta get the GOOD stuff! :rolleyes: :facepalm:

She spent every weekend scouring garage/yard sales to buy sh!t to sell at her own yard sale.
When we moved nearby, her husband put his foot down.
Clever bastard - then she started having yard sales at MY fxcking house.
And I actually USE my garage - she couldn't inderstand why she couldn't fill it with sh!t like hers.

I swear to God, it was like something out of a Seinfeld episode.
They had a two car garage for forty years, and had NEVER, EVER parked a vehicle inside.
Not even once.

Her attic was well-insulated too - sh!t was stuffed all the way to the rafters.
So she always had plenty of GOOD stuff to haul over to my house...

After four or five of those, I put my foot down too.
I got divorced.

:lol:

Remember after the LA cops were acquitted of the Rodney King beating.
