I don't actually do the shipping part, but I do know the boss has special guitar shipping boxes he uses.

Only six laptops today, and they were all monstrous pieces of crap.

My favorite item today was an Acer 10" tablet that would only boot every third time it was powered up. Good luck with that. I also sold an old sampler, a brand-new Dewalt 18V drill/impact drill kit, a brand new Beats headphone that someone will overpay for, a powerful Nikon flash, an old Sony 4-track recorder that records to Minidisk, a concrete cut-off saw and a DJ controller unit that you plug into a Mac.

Today I listed approximately $3000 worth of items. Some days I list more, some days less. I think the highest-priced item I've listed was some sort of high-falutin' audio processing studio gear. Either that or a designer watch.

Do you deal in guns? Antiques (pre-1899) are exempt from regulation

I don't think we do collectibles or antiques of any kind. Pawn Stars is fake...

A customer just came in and gave a USA Today newspaper to our man behind the counter.

Free of charge, he didn't want anything, wasn't shopping, wasn't pawning, just wanted to give someone his newspaper to read.

Only problem is, it wasn't today's edition. Or yesterday's.

This worked out OK because we use newspaper to pack items for shipping.

I sell a lot of iPhones in various states of disrepair. Just now I was given a broken iPhone 3GS to sell. It wouldn't slide to unlock and it was thought the screen was broken. I pressed a few other buttons and got it to unlock. Before erasing it, which we always do before selling any electronics gear, I figured I would take a look to see if there was anything illegal on it, because that can be fun. Went to the gallery and the first shot is a dick-pic, a dude with his junk all hanging out.

probably a prank by one of his buddys.

I do that any time someone leaves their phone in the bathroom. but i use my ass crack for the offensive photo. and then I make it their wallpaper.

good times.


So, I stopped at that pawn shop yesterday and replaced my son's laptop. he's stoked. and he owes me 12.5 hours of labor.

It was a good thing that Thinkpad was still around, because there were no new laptops for sale yesterday due to the short week after the storm.

Alan, the guy who runs the shop, was considering taking that laptop for his wife, but an even better one came off pawn this week. You got a good one!

We should have gotten a picture of us at the shop. WE R NOT SMRT

They had to let another guy go at the shop. So...

It turns out that I am going to be getting a lot more shifts at the pawn shop and I'm gonna be a part-time pawn broker, at least through the end of the year.

this is a good thing

I guess
