Friends of mine asked me to put their Moped in my driveway, so they could possibly sell it. My friends live in a tucked away street that basically just has the residential traffic, whereas my street is frequently traveled, so being a good friend, I agreed, with the stipulation that the For Sale sign specifically state that any questions regarding this Moped, please call this number, as the homeowner does not own this Moped.
So today, I am in the garage, and a Mini-Van Mom pulls up...
Mini-Van Mom: "Do you own this Moped?"
Me: "No, I don't, it's a friends' Moped."
Mini-Van Mom: "So, what size is the engine?"
Me: "Ma'am, I really don't know, it's just parked here for a friend."
Mini-Van Mom: "You know, $900.00 dollars is a lot to ask for this."
Me: "Ain't mine, ain't selling it, ya might want to call the number."
Mini-Van Mom: "So, you don't know the size of the engine?"
Mini-Van Mom: "Well, you know if you want people to buy this, you might want to know more about it."
Me: "Ummm...like I said, it isn't mine...did you see the placard?
Mini-Van Mom: "Yes, I did, why?"
Me: "Ummm, nothing, just curious..."
Mini-Van Mom: "Is it under a warranty?"
Me: "Doubt it"
Mini-Van Mom: "Well, don't you know?"
Me: "Sigh...no, I don't."
Mini-Van Mom: "Well, I guess I should call that phone number, since you don't know anything about this Moped..."
Me: "Might be a good idea"
Mini-Van Mom: "Well, I'll give them a call...have a nice day."
Mini-Van Mom turns around to leave...
Me to Mini-Van Mom...
