The Horrible Boppy

I have never had a bad experience buying things from Fort Campbell Yard Sales. I have some absolutely STUPID people buy from me, but I have never been screwed. Well this woman advertised a Boppy (the U-shaped pillow you can use for breastfeeding or lay your bigger baby in to drink their bottle). Her description said "hardly used, brand-new condition" and she was asking $10. That's a little steep for a used Boppy (they are $30 new), but I figured what the heck, if it's like new then I'll get it, saves me $20. WRONG. She lives about 15 miles away and met me outside of gate 4, I handed her husband (who was smoking) the $10 and took the Boppy. The part that was hanging out of the bag looked nice and round and fluffy, so I didn't bother pulling it out and inspecting it. WELL, I got it in the car and I could smell the stale smoke on the Boppy, then when I took it out of the bag, the one side was fluffed, but the rest was flat as a pancake!!! This Boppy looked like it had been rode hard and put away wet. I was so pissed off, I got home and immediately washed and dried it, then fluffed the heck out of that stupid thing. Now it is round again, but lumpy as ever. I am so mad. And of COURSE, the first thing Randy did when I put him in it was throw up all over it. This Boppy is cursed.
