I have a story. A story about a boy. This boy, walking to his friend's house, notices it's bulk trash day.
This boy and his friend get industrious and go searching for treasures. The boy finds fifteen old records by Elvis and hauls them home, promptly listing them on eBay.
And he waits. No bids. No bids. Then, suddenly there are bids. Five, twelve, thirty one dollars, thank you very much.
A few short hours after the auction closes and the money is safely paypaled, the same boy blows the wad on a pair of tweed Chuck Taylors.
Free shoes. Cool shoes that Dad did not have to buy. Long live the teenage boy with an industrious streak!
