This is my second day of writing, I already missed yesterday. I truly admire anyone who writes everyday.
If anyone knows me at all, they know I have a long standing strong dislike relationship with my car. There seems to be a cycle going on. Run for a few weeks, break down, costly repairs, repeat. Tuesday my car broke down again. This time I managed to break down at a busy intersection in Elm Grove and blocked traffic coming off I 70. Traffic quickly became backed up and I quickly became frustrated. Some wonderful good samaritans came to my rescue and pushed my car off the road while I waited to once again have my car towed home.
This quickly became the proverbial last straw. Out of curiosity, (and probably sheer frustration), I posted an ad to sell my car on Craig's list. Two and one half hours later, I have nine inquiries. By the next morning the number was up to twenty five. I was completely dumbfounded. Who would want to buy a car that breaks down on a regular basis.
After sending out a mass email explaining all the problems with the car, I still had six people interested in buying my car.
I do understand the dangers of selling or buying on Craig's list. I have taken all the precautions. Cash only, I will not go on a test drive with anyone and you can only come to see the car when Dale is here also.
I have some people coming to see the car tomorrow and hopefully this saga will soon be over. Then the next saga begins, I need to buy a new car. That is going to be a whole other story. Wish me luck.
