What's REALLY Important....
Just some random hilariousness for the day. We moved a couch for a guy today. No real adventure as far as the moving aspect goes. However, the seller was officially "A Trip". Do people still say that?!
Anyway, she was a very (ok VERY) attractive woman in her late 20s, early 30s...."with the mind of a much younger woman". She had just sold her "$2600 couch for $225", so business and math was NOT her forte. And from the look of her home, she may not have had the best domestic skill set other. Everything was very nice, and very expensive (for the sake of being expensive) but very dirty. The house was a mess.
She was mourning the loss of her couch. She said that the new, bigger, better, more expensive couch wouldn't get there for three days. "We'll have to break out the bean bag chairs....like in college." She even mentioned "Mad Dog 20 20", and all I could think was WOW. Because to look at her you would think she was a prim and proper "lady". She actually was married and had a kid. Her husband was there during all this. I failed to mention him until now because he never said a word and hardly made any eye contact.
When we went to leave she mentioned that they were relocating and might need our help. We asked where and she said "I dunno he hasn't decided yet." Turns out her husband is a partner in a law firm (Theres a CLUE). When we asked which one she literally said, " I dunno....one downtown, it has a really long name...I have a debit card from them though *hehe*".
All I could think again was WOW!! No wonder this guy never made eye contact. He was just counting the hours until Monday when he could go back to work and support his HABIT...which obviously was her. I would venture to guess where her true talents lie, and what she was bringing to the marriage that he would want to support "the lifestyle she was accustomed to....", but I will let you draw your own conclusions......
