Buy Low… Sell high

socks

My friend Jimmy bought some socks today on the popular site craigslist. He paid less than 4 dollars for 6 pairs. That’s 12 socks! The total per sock price is about 34 cents! Jimmy only had to drive to Orlando (from Sarasota). The guy selling the socks wasn’t home the first time, but later that week Jimmy went back and sure enough the socks where in great shape. Jimmy was so proud of his “great buy” he drove over to my place in Tampa just to show me. I’ll never forget how happy Jimmy looked driving up to my house and waiving those socks out the window of his Hummer!
