Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-17Wk34-2108


Odd Ball

Week 34, 2017


Not an Odd Ball photo this week, more an oddity which seems to be on the increase on our internet.

Over recent weeks I have been posting items

for sale for my Father-in-law.

He is downsizing.

One such item was this hand painted vase.

Below is the advertisement I posted on Facebook after researching how old ‘Vintage’ items should be to be called ‘vintage’

Vintage Hand Painted Vase
Asking $40.00 O.N.O
Approx 10 cm high
Excellent condition
The 1978 image was found inside the top
Definitely a New Vintage (20+ years) piece, and well on the way to being a True Vintage (50+ years) item……based on the 1978 date.

Deceased estate and downsizing, no further use.
Local pick up only at…….


And this is a comment I received:

You need a new calculator as its only 39 years young not more than 50 as you’ve stated! 2017- 1978 = 39.


This is the Facebook work history and education of that person.

Student – certificate IV & Diploma in Accounting

Ambulance    Accounts Receivable Officer

Department of Human Services-Housing Services Officer

Telephone Company – Customer service representative

Real Estate- Property Manager

Real Estate, Property Manager


Institute of Technical And Further Education 

Actively pursuing a Diploma in Accounting

Achieved a Certificate IV in Accounting

University Class of Early 2000s · Bachelor of Rural Social Welfare Studies


Personally, I think

Literacy and Customer/Public Relations courses

should be next on the agenda, me thinks.

Do you have these situations arise in your area?

  1. Maybe it’s the accounting. Working with numbers has alienated him/her from relating to other humans. 🙂 It is nice to know I am true vintage and well on my way to being antique. 🙂


      • Yes we try and teach respect for others and then quite often there is an inaccurate tirade….perhaps I am doing similar?…. There have been many times I have seen this type of thing on community Facebook pages…and to a lesser degree some FB groups. Frustrating.
