bonus post, collective #5 (double-length) - bargain hunters

Not a pivotal person, more a type
- shudder - skinflints buying used.

how two looked our nearly new
couch that wouldn't fit the new
place, sniffing. suppoooose
it could go in the rec room as
the dog's bed. then haggled
the 9/10 depreciation price.

buyers of the entertainment unit
examined skeptically, complained
seemed to say you owe us
for our mercy in taking it away.

why impose such dismissive
emotional loads, contentiousness
on what is a transaction
as guests to our home?
