It started at 6:30 when some guy called about the van Tom is trying to sell. He wanted to come see it, but T said it wasn't a good time, so they decided on tonight. That would have been fine - if he had stuck to that. I went out early, got my blood drawn and went to the dentist. On the way home I stopped at the grocery store. I no sooner got in than the guy called, wanting to come see the van in an hour! I know T wanted to sell it, so I said okay, then tore around here, putting away the groceries, emailing T to ask what to do about his set of keys - that he has at work - and the title which he has to sign. He called saying we'd have to send the guy the keys and title. Then I ran out to look the van over and take off the license plates and they pulled up. All went pretty well. They seemed to like it and I was able to answer most of their questions. Then they tried to turn on the radio. ....it didn't work! I said I knew it worked, because it was working the last time I drove it, but Tom decided one day to turn it off and he is the only one who knows how to turn it on, apparently. I called him, but he couldn't tell me what button to push without seeing the radio, so was no help.
Then, suddenly, they said they had to go! I don't blame them. With my frustration at the radio and trying to talk to Tom on the phone and the buyers I must have looked like a real ditz! They said they had to check out a few more, but I really don't think so. It seemed as if they were real interested until the fiasco with the radio happened. I told them to come back when Tom was here and he'd show them anything they wanted to know about the radio - and anything else, but I don't think they'll be back. I think I scared them off. If only Tom had not turned the radio off, I really think they'd have taken the van. Maybe not, but it's what I feel. I hate that radio anyway. It's frustrating to use (an "ON" button would be nice, instead of expecting you to just know what button turns it on) and I don't know WHY Tom turned it off! We NEVER turn it off (for good reason).
Oh well, there have been a few other people interested. Maybe one of them will buy it. Or maybe these people will come back. I don't know.... I'd rather not sell it anyway, I like that van, lol!
So now I'm trying to settle my mind after a frustrating, hectic, HOT day. I think it's Diet Coke and Jeopardy time, lol!
