I don't know if I mentioned this, but my mom gave me her car. It's a Honda Accord, 4 door, automatic and in great condition. I love it!!
Yesterday while I was at work, my parents drove my car from their side of town all the way over to my house and gave roommate the keys. Then, a girl that I know was interested in buying my car, so her and her boyfriend came over and picked the car up and took it to a mechanic. I guess they found some stuff wrong with it so they decided not to buy it and I don't know why, but I sort of got pissed about it. I was practically giving the car away.
I looked it up in Kelly Blue Book and it was worth $2,900.00. I was selling it to her for $1,000.00 - Bargain right?
Anyway, I came home last night and put it on Craigslist around 9:30 p.m. for $2,000.00. I literally had 4 calls in the first ten minutes. People love Hondas and they really love cheap Hondas. A guy came over last night at 10 p.m. to test drive it. He wanted to buy it on the spot, but he only had a personal check and there was no way I was taking a check. I told him cash only. He said that his bank opens at 7:00 a.m. and that he'll be here this morning before I head off to work. He has 22 minutes because I'm leaving at 7:30. Anyway, I'm just feeling really confident about the car. Someone will definitely buy it for $2,000 even with the minor cosmetic and mechanical problems.
Now, I'm glad she didn't buy it. But, I can't help but still be a little annoyed with her. I told her exactly what was wrong with the car and her mechanic confirmed that I was 100 percent accurate. So, why even waste everyone's time if you know what's wrong with it and you aren't going to buy it? Her loss!
I kind of dropped the ball this season with Dancing with the Stars. I'm just not feeling it. I watched the first few episodes and now I just watch the clips on You Tube if I really get bored and I just follow the news stories. I'm glad Susan Lucci finally went home.
Guess what?! He showed up at 7:10 a.m. this morning with cash and my car is now SOLD!! Yay! I know he's going to turn around and sell it for more and make a profit, but I don't care. I'm just glad I got a little bit of dough. woo hoo!
