At least that is how I read it and I am not reading it again.
Thanks, I didn't read it. I saw a small blurb about it the other day but didn't read much more.

How do you know this? I'm not even sure how much I am worth, let alone others.

I will say that Barry seems to "know" everyone, and given some of the cars he drives, it doesn't look like he's hurting for money.

I read an article on Yahoo once that stated most people think Dave has the biggest bankroll, but he doesn't Barry does. Of course i don't remember them saying how much he was worth though.

I assumed they opened them after the auctions were over, I mean how do go through a locker and then make it to the next auction before it even starts? lol

I love some of Barry's vehicles, so oddball but they fit his personality perfectly. lol

Flower dies!

My kids got really into this show but we only saw 1 season or so because it was on Netflix.

I really enjoyed that show.

After this cycle I'll never have to hear another yuuuuup ever again?
whoo hooo!

I decided the show was fake after the episode when they traveled to Oxnard and tried to describe it as a very upscale, new money type of city. Oxnard is the toilet of Ventura County.

The sad part is I wonder how many people decided to start buying storage lockers hoping to find treasure.
Nope, but they only show the ayctions that the cast members win. If you pay attention at the beginning of the episode they sometimes say how many units are for auction at the facility, yet they only show 3 or 4. And a few this season they have been showing snippets of the other auctions in between scenes of the auctions they show.

However, I wish they'd knock off the blatantly contrived office antics.
In the book he says they close the store completely when they tape, and yes, people with interesting stuff are asked to come back for when they tape.

What is Storage Wars anyway? I'm picturing trucks full of boxes bashing into each other.

There is another side to this story that says that Hester is merely crying for the Waaaahmbulance.
