Yesterday afternoon my neighbor Girly Girl sent me a text.
GG: Do you have any beets? My friend wants to pickle some and she will trade you for some of the jars of pickled beets for beets.
Mavis: I will only trade beets for candy. When do you want them?
GG: Tomorrow? She has candy.
Mavis: No hard candy. It’s crap. Do you want me to pull them now and you can just stick the beets in the refrigerator?
GG: So chocolate only? We will be driving by in 30 minutes, if you want to trade today.
Mavis: When will I get my candy?
GG: 30 minutes
Mavis: K. Deal. I’m leaving to go to Home Depot in a few minutes. They will be on the porch.
When I came home this is what I found on the porch.
1 pint sized jar of Dove chocolates.
I think I seriously got ripped off.
Note to self: Always barter in person, never leave vegetables unattended on the porch.
