So tonight some chick posted this on a Worcester County Yard Sale Facebook Page:
As you can see, she is selling a toy called “Hatchimals” for $200, which evidently are the latest version of Tickle Me Elmo. And make no doubt about it – this chick is definitely a Worcester ratchet. You need only look at the chosen headgear of her lifelong boyfriend to understand that:
Flat brimmed Chicago Bulls hat. The official hat of deadbeat dads everywhere.
Anyway, people were really fired up about this. Let’s see why….
No, they’re not $50 toys. They WERE $50 toys. Now they’re $200 toys. If the demand isn’t there for them then she will have no choice but to reduce the price, or else she will suffer a heavy loss. This is how capitalism works.
The Christmas Spirit? HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!! If the “Christmas spirit” for you means buying some piece of shit viral toy because your kids won’t shut up about them, then you don’t understand what the Christmas spirit is. Go buy a sandwich for a homeless guy or make your peace with Old Man Marley like Kevin McCallister did. That’s the Christmas Spirit. Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” ends with Scrooge wishing everyone a merry Christmas and buying Tiny Tim a turkey. It doesn’t end with him going to Wal-Mart and buying Tiny Tim a Tickle Me Elmo.
Only a Nazi brags about reporting Facebook posts they don’t like. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it? Don’t agree with it? Move on with your life. There is a special place in hell for these sort of fascists.
Wait a minute. Wal-Mart is now selling them for $50? It’s almost as if you could go to Wal-Mart and buy it there for a fraction of the price.
If this were my kid, besides from her obviously flawed taste in men and proclivity for bathroom selfies, I would be quite proud of her entrepreneurial spirit.
“I don’t wanna pay the price they’re asking for, therefore they shouldn’t be allowed.” More Facebook Nazis doing what they do best.
So it’s OK for them to double the retail price, but not muliply it by four? Thank you for arbitrarily deciding how much money is too much money for someone to make in a free market. The Red Chinese approve of this message.
LOL. Doug Slinn has decided that this act of free enterprise, “doesn’t make it right.” Because that means something. This man right here gets to decided what is and is not “right”:
Not surprisingly Doug Slinn was one of the idiots involved in “Occupy Worcester” in 2011. Remember them? They pitched a bunch of tents and complained that they were poor and other people were rich. They were jealous of other people’s wealth because their lives were pure and utter failures. Shocking that he would have a problem with people profitting in a free society.
“My daughter wants one so bad, but instead of telling her no or buying her a better toy for less money, I blame the person who is charging a price I don’t agree with.”
“I refuse to put money in other people’s pockets for greed. Unless this toy is being sold at Wal-Mart. They’re not greedy at all.”
“I want something that I’m not willing to pay for. This makes me sad.”
I have been through a lot of Christmases as a kid. Never once got a Hatchimal. But yet my Christmas experiences were amazing and pleasant. How is that possible? The only way a kid can be happy on Christmas is when their parents buy some overpriced toy made by an 8 year old in China. Sure, they could just buy it next year for $10, but they want it now. Therefore, how can you live with yourself?
“It should be illegal because I don’t like it.”
Oh yea, and if she gets stuck with them then it will be because she set her prices too high. Then she will have no choice but to lower the prices. This is how a free market works.
No, they’re not taking away from any other kids on Christmas. More than likely she’ll find plenty of morons who will pay the $200, and their kids will like their stupid Christmas gift. Then they’ll stop playing with it after a couple weeks and Mom and Dad will feel like fucking idiots for buying into the latest viral craze.
If anything, blame the company for not making enough of these to meet demand. They knew people would want these and they are intentionally keeping them off the market in order to drive up demand. But why take your anger out on the gigantic corporation who is robbing you blind when you can blame the Webster Square chick who’s trying to raise money for scratch tickets and Newport Lights?
Call the IRS????!!! HAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA!!! Yea, this is the sort of thing the IRS investigated. Definitely.
Oh snap!! Game changer!! Jenny Vautour has really good friends who work for the IRS. They’re gonna stop what they’re doing and investigate some Worcester hoodrat selling a Christmas toy on the Internet!! Because when I see this face:
The first thing I think is, “that chick knows someone at the IRS – better not mess with her.”
I LOVE when legal experts start listing off all these laws the rest of us are unfamiliar with. Yea, selling something for more than you paid for it is ILLEGAL!!! Literally no one does that. When I go to a restaurant and buy a cheeseburger and fries for $11.99, that means that the restaurant paid $11.99 for it too.
When Michelle Arnhold isn’t busy saving France from terrorists she is scouring the Internet offering free legal advice. Well Michelle, she actually marked it up 400%, but who’s counting? However, I’m curious about how much you can legally mark up an item for sale? 150%? 200%? Because I’m sure this law exists and you can show it to us. Definitely.
Oh look, ANOTHER Internet lawyer!! He’s obviously not familiar with a magical place called “Stubhub.” If he was, then he could go and see what people are charging for tickets to the Patriots-Rams game on December 4. Since the Rams suck balls, people should be able to get tickets for face value, right? Let’s see what they cost:
$858. I’m sure that’s what the seller paid for them. It’s almost as if the guy bought these tickets ahead of time, knowing that people would want them and then he could raise the price and make a profit off of it!! And there’s nothing more anti-American than making a profit off of the buying and selling of goods. How much for the nose bleed tickets?
$244. For last row seats in the upper left hand corner of the stadium. Sounds legit!! Better call the IRS on Stubhub!! After all, some guy on Facebook said that scalping was illegal. And don’t tell them about what Cubs tickets cost for the World Series (average price was $3,000 per ticket) because their heads will explode.
If you bought into this shit then shame on you. The mere fact that you WANT this is what is driving up demand and thus driving up the price. Of course you would never be able to understand simple microeconomics because you’d rather spend your time whining instead of learning how a fucking economy works. Don’t like the price of something? Don’t buy it. But the company has already outsourced the labor to a country with no labor or environmental laws, lobbied politicians for favorable trade deals, and marked up the price for retail value. So why can’t this chick? Just buy your kid a fucking book and give them a hug and maybe they won’t turn out to be a giant dumbass.
P.S. If you really want your kid to have one of these toys then just wait until after Christmas when the price plummets. In the mean time leave this not under the tree:
