I also hate when people put $1 in the cost so it comes up for searches with a max of $50 or $100 for example, then in the listing it mentions they want $350 for it. I would never trust someone who did that. And the antique thing kills me. 70s/80s items are not antiques ...

A girlfriend of mine brought me some stargazers as a housewarming present. My mother always taught me to pull off the anthers (pollen sticks) as soon as I put them in a vase, but I procrastinated. Sure enough, one day I knocked them over and the red/orange pollen got all over our new carpet in our new apartment. I (freaked out) remained calm and (sped) drove to the grocery store and bought some Resolve carpet cleaner. Got it out like a charm, no harm done! Then the next week, I tried to make some fancy raspberry lemonade and froze raspberries in lemon icecubes... except one fell on the floor that I didnt see and the next morning there was a melted berry stain. Resolve to the rescue again! No stains, carpet looks like new.
