“We cannot give you a raise right now, but we will compensate you as soon as the budget allows”. Turns out “when the budget allows” is “when you already have another job offer and put in your two weeks notice”.


“Your call is important to us.”


In high school a buddy told me that he didn’t steal our other buddies watch. He was wearing the watch when I asked him about it.


“The company is in a great shape so don’t pay any attention to rumours about financial trouble”


I was picking up a sofa from a guy I found on Kijiji and he stopped me right before leaving to see if I wanted to buy a mirror he was also looking to get rid of. I wasn’t really interested but my wife seemed keen so we stopped in the hallway to check it out. He said “It was a gift from my son in law. It’s a beautiful mid-century antique. I’ll let it go for $75.” He went on about what an amazing mirror it was and even told me “pick it up and feel how sturdy it is!”. I picked it up (it was really heavy actually) and took a peek at the back and saw a sticker from Value Village with a $30 price tag. I kinda chuckled to myself and asked if he would go any lower than $75. He said “I really couldn’t”. Then I said “Well, I can see a tag from Value Village on the back here…” We ended up getting the “mid-century antique” mirror for $15 and me and my wife still laugh about the amazing deal we got on it.
