Well I either saved money or lost none.

I went to an auction a few days ago across the bay, which is a 75 mile ride one way and $17 in a toll.  The wife didn’t want to go, but I did and need the fix.  Instead my oldest daughter went with me, to “keep me under control”.  Well it didn’t work.  The last unit of the day was an old grandmothers unit 10x10 packed full and not been touched at all in years.  I tried to go high right off the bat to get it and get out.  Well it went  like this,  started off at 100, then 200, I went 400. Then 410 and I jumped to 500, the 510.  Then jumped it to 600, when is this guy going to stop, Daughter no help. The only thing that I hear out of her is “mom’s going to kill you”.  The next bid is 610, I’m thinking to myself dam jerk, ok 700.   And he went to 740.  He saved my marriage, and my  wife set the new rules into place, I will not ever go alone or with my daughter ever again.   I was fun for the time it lasted.  Trying to get her to go tomorrow.  :)

If I would have listened to my wife, I probably wouldn't still be in this business. The best unit I ever bought, my wife got pissed off at me and walked off. She told me I was a fool for spending that much on a locker. It's amazing how quickly you wife's opinion of you changes when you find a safe full of jewelry.

I prefer to be alone at the auctions. No distractions or opinions. Just business.

I will admit, my wife is better at bidding and knowing when to walk away.
