First of all, it sure does look like I goofed in yesterdays pollution post! :o(

I went to the 2nd hand store last week, and spotted this cute coffee mug sitting on top of one of the many shelves.

I walk up toward it to get a better view and was just about to grab it, when someone shoved me a few feet back. I turned quickly to see who had pushed me in such a vicious way, and saw these two women start attacking each other violently. They were both yanking as each others hair, then this other woman who had a baby in her arms joined in the fight, then more women joined in. There must have been a total of 10 women. It was horrible!

They were getting dangerously close to the coffee mug, so I quickly took a couple of steps forward, grabbed it, and got the hell out of there!

It was the very first time in my life that I actually saw a fight of this nature among women happen in a store. The male employees quickly approached them and tried to separate them, but it was impossible because they found themselves getting attacked, also.

I have no idea what happened next, because I quickly paid for my mug and left!

This is the adorable mug I saved from those horrible women!

Oh, and before the brawl started, I found 2 gumball machines to add to my growing collection, and one of them is a Scooby-Doo gumball machine!!!!

These are the two new ones I found!

My gumball collection.

Here they are scrubbed, and filled with gumballs perchased at the Dollar Store! The plastic one in the middle was given to me by my friend Lolly for Christmas.

Someday, I hope to buy myself a Red Lamborghini, so anyone who visits me, either friend or foe, must buy one gumball for a quarter from each and every one of my gumballs!

I must find many more gumball machines!! :o)

i've heard of brawls like that but i always thought they were an urban legend. christ. i would've gotten the mug, put it in a car and went back in and watched the wrestlemania brawl from a safe distance.


seriously though, i'm glad you weren't hurt. and you did the smart thing.

i normally don't get into cars. because to me cars are cars. and i'll take a ford focus over say a bmw. that's my mentality. cars are cars.

with the exception............of....you guessed it, the lamborghini. i have been in love with that car ever since moonwalker. any mention of the l-word in my presence and i make the oh-face. as was the case when i read it and clicked the link.

tell you what, you get a red one and i'll try to get a black one. and we can like take each other for a spin in the automotive orgasms that are lamborghinis.

I have no earthly idea what started the fight, but I got the hell out of there, because my only concern was for the safty of my mug and gumball machines! haaaaaaa

This guy once asked me out on a date who owned a Pantera. When I told him his Pantera didn't hold a candle to a Lamborghini, I never saw him again! I've often wondered why! ;o)

OMG! Wouldn't we look spiffy; you driving your black Lamborghini, and I driving my Candy Apple red one!!!

Fighting women
What part of the Wild Wild West do you live in? In a thrift store no less, sounded like a bar-room brawl. You do live in an interesting and maybe dangerous place.

Be careful of that "to whom it may concern." bullet.

Re: Fighting women
There was one time when this very expensive women's clothes store was closing it's doors forever, and were selling all these EXTREMELY expensive clothes and shoes for just a few bucks.

Lolly and I took a big box each, and started grabbing everything in sight, just as all the rest of the women were doing.

I remember going into the HUGE one room fitting room to try out the dresses and skirts. There we were ALL in only panties and bra. This one woman grabbed the pants and shirt I had put on at home. I grabbed them back, and we both started pulling on them! I kept screaming at her that they were MY OWN clothes, but she wouldn't believe me! Finally, Lolly came to my rescue and helped me yank them out of her hands!!

That was a truly unforgettable adventure in my life! Don't you ever enter a women's clothing store when there's a sale of the century, cause you could very well lose your pants! We women are vicious when it comes to sales!! haaaaaaaaa

Re: Fighting women
You are totally cracking me up. Best laugh I have had in a long time.

I will remember your advice. LOL
May. 20th, 2007 04:09 pm (UTC)
hahaha how old were these women?
May. 20th, 2007 04:25 pm (UTC)
They look to be in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s, and they were all huge!! Oh, and there was a baby there, too! :o)

The last thing I saw as I ran out was a woman yanking on another’s pony tail!

A diabetic who collects gumbal machines...you are too funny!
I know why they were fighting...don't you??
They saw SLPG and are jealous of your hotness and were trying to disfigure you.....good thing you ran when you did!!!
May. 20th, 2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
I know it's hard to believe, but I haven't ever sampled even one of my gumballs. But, you put chocolate in front of my face, and it's impossible to resist, and could care less if I come close to going into a coma for gobbling it all up! :o)

Aw... you're so sweet, but they had absolutely no interest in SLPG, 'cuz they're only interest was in killing themselves, for God knows what reason!

Sounds like the thrift stores around here when they put out new things from the back. I use to go to this one thrift store here to what they called ((the as is yard)) you could get some great stuff for all most free. everyone would line up a hour ahead of time and when they open the gate it was the same way you just described it :o) lol you know I was the first one in line every day!! =o) lol

I found fore gumball machines this last two weeks maybe I will put a pic of them.
You know sunshine I do not have a red Lamborghini but I do have a Red Dodge Ram :o)

It's been so long since I've been to one of those once in a lifetime sales, Sweety Pie! But I still get quite a rush every time I go to the 2nd hand store and flea markets!

I hope you do post pics of your gumball machines.

I'm honestly not a materialistic kind of girl. I think Red Dodge Rams are great vehicles!

I'm having a very quite and relaxing Sunday, and enjoying it very much. Hope you enjoy yours, too!

You know every time I go out to yard sales 2nd hand stores or estate sales I get so excited because you never know what you will fine kind of like forest Gump :o) and I just love dickering people down and you can meet some real nice people too. But I do have to keep my self from spending to much some times I find my self buying some thing from some one just because I know they really need the money
And I know your not a materialistic kind of girl, and I got the pics of the gumball machines, but I will not be able to get it up for two days, I will be on the road.

((“But I will not be able to get it up for two days,” Oh boy I just read what I just said and it does not sound to good does it :o) lol)) hahahaaaaa...

Thank you!

There's nothing like a gumball machine to bring on the happy smiles! :o)
May. 20th, 2007 08:48 pm (UTC)
Gotta love a gal who has a gumball machine collection!
May. 21st, 2007 12:56 am (UTC)
That was as sweet as can be, and for it, you get two of my gumballs for FREE!
May. 21st, 2007 02:43 am (UTC)
Thankyou! :)

What the hell? I didn't think things like that actually happened in stores. Were they fighting over an item or just fighting? Just fighting I can see happening. However immature it is. :)
May. 21st, 2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
I thought it only happened in movies, but I saw it happen for the first time in a store, and it was quite shocking!

I have no idea what started the fight.
May. 21st, 2007 04:54 am (UTC)
Nice mug!
May. 21st, 2007 02:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

It's quite thick and heavy, and very well made. It will always hold fond memories for me of a gang of over grown women fighting to the death inside a store! ;o)
May. 21st, 2007 07:33 am (UTC)
! were they fighting over the mug? or for some other reason?
May. 21st, 2007 02:49 pm (UTC)
I don't believe the mug had anything to do with the fight, because when I spotted it, there was no one around.

I did stand in front of the mug for quite a while, contemplating whether to buy it or not, and that's when I was suddenly shoved with great force to the side by a woman who was pushed by the other woman. Then this other woman who was holding a baby started pulling on the woman's pony tail, and before I knew it, there were many more women attacking each other. That's when I decided I wanted the mug more than anything in the world, grabbed it, and ran! heh heh

My Grandson's a Scooby-Doo freak...he'd love that.

The "old, original" Filene's Basement in Boston was good for women battling for bargains. There were no changing rooms...so use your imagination. There was an elevated walkway around the perimeter. So many men came in during there lunch hours to get an eyeful, that they had to put up plywood barriers to block the view. They still have a once a year designer wedding gown sale that's a trip.

Aye! Scooby, Scooby Doo, I love you!!

I once had the opportunity of undressing in one of those huge dressing rooms that had no stalls. I tell you, never had I seen so many boobies, big, small, up, down, and rumps, small, flat, big, and HUGE, where I had to sometimes take a double look to see if I was halucinating! I'm sure those guys who got an eyeful in Filene's basement, couldn't believe their eyes at times!! haaaaaaaa
