When we were leaving Scott's Bargain Barn yesterday, Cliff told me about an item he really wanted, but the price was unacceptable to him: 5/16- (or possibly 3/8-) sized star washers for six cents each. He says they should be sold by the pound, not so much per piece.
"Where else can you buy them?" I asked.
"I haven't been able to find them anywhere else."
"So, how many of them could you use?" I asked him.
"Oh, I probably only need a dozen."
So I'm doing the math in my head. Seventy-two cents. Why would a man not spend a buck or so to get those washers he needs? Especially a man who has spent quite a bit of money buying tractors and motorcycles.
"It's just the idea of it," says Cliff.
Must be a guy thing.
