Super Savings Continued...

After my last post, I'll bet you thought those people at the consignment sale were pretty silly, didn't you.'s the rest of the tale.

After H's nap, I loaded the girls back up in the car and drove back across town to the sale.  I put H in the Ergo and M in the stroller and headed in.  All the while I was feeling slightly irritated that I had to do all this because of someone else's mistake.  I was also really hoping I'd get my money back.  You see, the receipt was just printed on regular printer paper and if I really wanted to, I could have fabricated it.  I was afraid they'd say "Too bad, all sales are final," and leave me stuck with a $20 monitor that I only thought was worth $2.

I went right up to the lady at the desk and told her the situation.  I showed her the receipt that said $20 and the monitor that said $20.  Wait.  What?  The monitor said $20???  I honestly did not realize until I was handing the lady at the checkout the monitor that it said $20!  In that moment, I was just sure I was stuck with something I didn't plan on paying that much for!  After all, the signs do say, "All Sales Final."  The lady asked me if I thought it cost $2 and I said I did.  I apologized and before I could say anything more, she said she'd take care of it.  Amazing!  I thanked her over and over and told her I wouldn't spread it around that they'd done a return.  (Don't spread it around, okay???)

So, I guess God wanted to humble me that day.  I was more embarrassed than I have been in a long time and at the same time, I knew someone was showing me mercy for my stupid mistake.  Oh, and I must confess, the fact that I posted this on my blog for all the world to see makes it even more embarrassing.  But like I said, I guess God wanted to give me a good humbling experience.
