Story Of My Life

The thrift store by my house had a 50% off sale Thursday Friday and Saturday. I was hoping to buy this fruit stand/display I saw there on Monday. I arrived 10 minutes after opening, only to see it in someone's cart. I kept my eye on her hoping she would change her mind but she didn't.

Friday I went back to get a bed frame, headboard and footboard for Ryker. I asked the clerk if she could hold it for me and before I could finish my sentence, she said no we don't do that. I had to explain I was going to buy it but I wanted to look around first. She told me I could bring it up to the side of the check out.

When I put it together at home, the frame was about 1/8" wider than the box spring. How does that happen? I also discovered the box spring was completely broken. We ended up using a piece of board to support the mattress.
