Majority sell on ebay for under $100.    I think I'd return it, especially if unit is already turning a profit.  I'd rather have the goodwill and good karma......

But here's an option.....

Funny thing is, she requested two items back. The prosthetic leg and an Asian vase that was full of candy. I found the vase. It's hand painted but there are no visible markings. I'm going to take it to someone who specializes in Asian pottery and have it checked out. I found it odd that she had $2400 in silver stuffed in a drawer but she asks for a vase to be returned. It's nice looking but so are the other 60K pieces for sale on eBay for under $50. It could be sentimental to her or it could be worth a fortune. We will see.

Thanks!

I know it's tough losing some of your belongings in a locker, but sometimes you have to look at the situation, and get back up on your foot.

To be honest, if she didn't drag her foot, she wouldn't be in this situation to begin with!

Well, that's what she gets for being footloose and fancy-free.   :D

You may not want to see her.. The last thing you need is for her to fall head over heel in love with you..

HAHA!

You don't know what it's like to walk in her shoe.

She would have paid her bill, but she got off on the wrong foot.

She wasn't able to get a foothold on her bill.

When she was pressured to pay her bill, she got cold foot.

She's trying real hard to find a job. She just wants to get a foot in the door.

She would take any job, she just wants to get her foot wet.

I heard she went toe to toe with the property manager.

During the argument, she said some things that she shouldn't have. She really put her foot in her mouth.

I'm sure she'll be okay. Everything will work out. She'll land on her foot.

After all, this may all be a big joke. Way to pull our leg, Travis!


...........and I'm done..

He kneeds to be, otherwise he gets upset. I figure that's his Achilles Heel. Of course things can always be smoothed over with a stack of pancakes over at the IHOP.

I would post a snarky reply and really put my foot down, but I'll put my best foot forward and take the high road. After all, if the shoe was on the other foot, I may feel the same way. So now I will go, and wait on my wife hand... and... I forget how that saying goes..

Look, I really don't want to get off on the wrong foot but I think this thread has one foot in the grave. I mean, how many leg, foot and toe idioms can we come up with? You really have to be on your toes to keep up with it all. So, I'm going to have to put my foot down and ask you to stop. If that doesn't work I'll have to pull the rug from under your feet.

At the risk of shooting myself in the foot, I will continue rather than set foot onto a different topic. Before the end of this horrific topic, I may need to stretch my legs, but I may end up sweeping someone off their feet. Or perhaps someone will run with their tail between their legs.

Not to step on anyone's toes, but I think this lady should get her prosthetic back. I'm sure she would come racing back to you with a lead foot. Good thing she doesn't have 2 left feet.. But what do you really want her to do? Throw herself at your feet? Cool your heels! So kick up those heels and celebrate the rest of the locker, because that prosthetic is not worth a whole lot.

I can be bribed into exiting this topic, I'm thinking of a figure with 5 digits.

This thread is a good example of toe jam.
