Thick Skin Bargain Bitch

I'm the kind of shopaholic that is attracted to bargains. I can't resist cheap stuff. I end up buying 2 or 3 of the same thing if its cheap. 20% discounts never fool me.

So i call myself a Bargain Bitch. I love shopping but i don't buy unless its cheap...

I need a chair... or two. To dump my laptop bag and stuff on in my room. Stupid chairs here are expensive. Like 39 dollars for a good one. The stupid stool, the plastic kind u sit on when u are at the pasar malam costs 5 dollars. =

One fine day as i was walking back from class, there at the trash area were two perfectly good blue (matches my room) chairs with armrests! There was also a blue computer chair with wheels!!! I want them all!!!!

I started to pull the computer chair away... and my friend told me to better not do that... I turned around and saw "Under survelience" (forgive my spelling, i seem to have forgotten how to spell everything).

Scared, i put back the chair and decided to go ask someone if i could recycle the trash. So i went to the closest building and asked. I was told to ask the works department. And so i did. And they said "Why not?"!!!! =) =) =)

But it wasn't meant to be. By the time i went back to the trash area... my chairs were all gone... =(

When you see things beside the trash outside, you can take it. People don't care wan...which is the point that it is with the trash right?

It is very typical at western countries.
