Coincidence?

By in Uncategorized

As I was paying bills yesterday, and noticing that I had spent $102 on postage, I wondered to myself about stamps. What if I bought a ridiculous amount of forever stamps before the price went up and then sold them down the road below face value, but for more than what I had paid for them. What kind of profit could I make? I have random thoughts like this all the time, and as quickly as it popped in my head, it popped back out. Later that day, a woman came by to do some research. While she was there, her cellphone rang, and I couldn’t help hearing her conversation since she was sitting right behind me. Someone wanted to sell her husband stamps below face value. She was trying to figure out if they were stolen or if that was even legal; I was trying to figure out what were the odds of this happening the same day I was randomly thinking about it. I wont lie, it kind of freaked me out.

    This reminds me of a Seinfeld episode, where Kramer tried to return a sh*tload of bottles with his van in a another state in which they were more worth as in NY. Well, of course it didn't work out like he planned.
