What do you mean you won’t take it?
By Austin Light Like many people who purchased upgrades on Black Friday, I was stuck with an old product that I no longer needed. For me it was an almost five-year-old, 27-inch TV, one of Wal-Mart’s first high-def sets. Though I was eventually unsatisfied with my old TV and its lack of features, I figured someone might want it; I mean it worked just fine. So I hefted it into the back of our car along with another older TV we had sitting around and headed to the pawn shop. I knew I wouldn’t get much for them — my brother sold his old computer monitor a few months ago for about $20 — but I’d take what I could get. I pulled up to the pawn shop and a girl followed me out to assess my electronics. She took a look at both TVs and went back in the store. She came back out a moment later and told me they couldn’t take them; they were too big and too old. I was stunned. Four and a half years is too old?
