Mom and Dad



#5

So here's the deal - Like my mom, I go snooping around in junk stores on a fairly regular basis. Best HP deal I ever found in one was a 12C for about two bucks.

My dad on the other hand, can't stand those stores, so he seldom enters one. So he called me over the Christmas break, as he was standing in a store waiting for my mom (mom likes to shop), and asked if he should buy this calculator for $.98. It didn't have any batteries, so he couldn't tell if it worked. It was a 15C, so of course I told him to grab it. So he walks down the aisle a few steps, and lo and behold, there was another one! Two 15Cs for a buck a piece! But don't answer yet - Turns out, it was half price day, so he got both of them for a buck. :^) (Yeah, I feel kind of guilty for hoarding.)

He also found a 48GX once for $10 at a different store, also while waiting on my mom.

I hope I can grow up to be like my dad some day ;^)

Ron,

Are your parents open to adopt more children?????

Where do they shop?! I have never been to any store that would have calcs like that just lying around for sale. Were they in nice condition or for spare parts only?

I know this comes not even close to your luck but let me share it nonetheless: Just got my Sharp PC-1500 that I've 'won' on ebay. Used condition but ok. It was a big surprise that the seller left a 16KB module in it which is usually worth more than the calculator itself:).
