Like the man who came to my garage sale yesterday and paid me a quarter for an old remote control.
I don't even know what it was for (old TV, VCR, air-conditioner? Who Knows?)
Likelihood that he owns the object that it's compatible for? Zero
Maybe he lost his remote at home and just wants to be able to sit around in his Lazy-Boy holding on to something. I'll leave it at that.
