Default Christmas Came Early This Year!

Finally, something good happens to me this year. So, I'm just driving down the road, when I see people ahead swerving, so I slow down and.....holy crap, it's a bunch of BRAND NEW high quality styrofoam coolers strewn all around the road....they kind you'd ship ice cream in, that kind of thing.

Well, heck, I figure I'll pick them up and prevent someone else from having an accident over it, and maybe I can sell them. So I put them all in the bed of my truck, and strapped them down (because what kind of idiot doesn't strap down lightweight coolers that could blow out of a moving vehicle).

So I drove by a guy selling cocos frio and other fruit by the side of the road and sold them all to him. I made a quick $ 200, and he probably could sell them one by one and make, oh, I don't know, maybe $ 600 or so for them, so we were both pretty happy.

Anyway, it was a good day.

Coolers looked like this:

I have over a dozen of them stacked up in the garage. I'll give them to you free of charge. All you need to do is come and get them. You may be able to get more than $200 for them.
