It seemed strange to me. I had been in and out of antique stores for several days and I saw one round glass dining table after another, covered with dust, so I could assume they had been there for a while.

Now I am seeing several in a store. I just came out of MISS MUFFET’S ANTIQUES, and I counted ten of them in there in a back room, covered with dust and some in really bad condition, with cracks and some with spilled paint.

I asked the woman, “Why do you have these tables back here?”

She answered, “What do you mean?”

“Well, would anybody buy any of these old beat-up tables. Like this for
example.”

She said, “Honey, it is obvious you know nothing about antiques and as far as I’m concerned, you can just leave my store. You have ruined the atmosphere.  This is the original location of MISS MUFFET’S ANTIQUES”
