I was recently given some concert tickets, but I couldn't use them, because I had a prior commitment that night; and an exchange wasn't possible. I had to give them up. Five days past the concert date, someone else gave me other tickets that were even better for us. We attended and had a great time.

I was recently shopping on Ebay, losing three bidding contests for items I wanted. On the fourth try, after a week; I won the item I wanted, for a lower price, from a man who seemed to have more integrity than the other sellers I encountered.

My son wanted a new, lawn decoration, that really isn't in the budget. Yesterday, a relative got one for free and gave it to us.
