Best blonde joke ever

| Posted on

I normally dislike blond jokes, and jokes in general are more of an annoyance than anything respectable, but sometimes there are exceptions worth making.

We sold over 1300 items in Olathe on Saturday, setting a record not for the number of lots but for the number of hours in a Purple Wave auction squarely at 12.5 hours. A long day indeed, we started at 10 a.m. and finished at 10:30 p.m., packed up and came home braving the wintered roads making it back hours after midnight.

It was the first away auction in a long time that I wasn’t scrambling to make things go correctly. The last auction found me coding well into the third hour of the event before I could relax and know that our item presentation display wasn’t going to break. I could relax at this auction, which went quite smoothly, knowing that the improvements to our systems are starting to pay off.
