I Told You So

"This has really accentuated all your faults."  Mrs F says this morning.

"Thanks."  Mr F remarks sarcastically.

He pauses then continues...

"I know.  For me too." He adds regrettably.

I take it the selling of the car didn't go as planned? :) Ahh..but if everything went as planned where would we ever find the humor? :P

Mrs Furious said...

Marie,
"I take it the selling of the car didn't go as planned?"
yeah... you could say that.



Mr F,
can I?

Mr Furious said...

In an attempt to be as fair as possible to too many people, I ended up creating a disaster. Like Mrs F I have a hard time not trying to accommodate everyone, and unlike Mrs F, I don't have a filter for myself, and I am incapable of lying effectively—both of which are key to successfully selling an old car.

At the end of the day, I may or may not have even sold it (?!?!) And I'm fine with it either way.

Night.Mare.

(Mrs F is free to have whatever fun she desires with this fiasco. It's the least I deserve.)

For your Easy bread recipe, is it regular yeast (not rapid rise)? Thanks!

Mrs Furious said...

Hey Colleen,
I always use rapid rise yeast.
Good luck!

Hmmm... Curious as to why the car selling was a disaster. Sounds like it could be one of those "funny-in-hindsight" stories?

Mrs Furious said...

Gigs,
Well it is actually hard to describe what happened.
He listed his car (w/o telling me) at what he thought was a good price for it. It is worth less blue book wise but here this particular car is worth more. Okay he got immediate interest and the first guy out offered to buy it on the spot. Well he got so much interest he realized he could get more for it. Instead of taking it down and relisting it for more (as I suggested) he had everyone come see it (some driving 3 hours) and make an offer. Well not everyone was down with it being a bidding situation when it was just a regular car ad with a price and they all offered to pay it and then he wanted to wait for everyone to see it and take the best offer. Understandably some people got pissed. The scenario was quickly confusing and over his head and he complicated matters by sending everyone over the top explanations for what he was doing every step of the way. He went further allowing some people the opportunity to match the highest offer but not everyone... this was quickly looking and feeling shady. He was trying to be *fair* to everyone but in the end you can't be fair to everyone someone is getting the car and the rest are not. He got way too many people involved. Then he started freaking out that he shouldn't sell the car since he doesn't have a new job yet (hmm sounds like what I said last week!). He also only wanted to sell it to people he thought didn't need it or could afford for it to explode on them next week and not someone he'd feel bad for if it died on them (it is a 15 year old car... everyone understands the risks involved). See? Crazy.
Right now we don't even know if the person who bid highest wants it anymore... which on one hand is good... we'll see.

Mr Furious said...

More like "idiot-in-hindsight."

This story almost makes me feel better about my husband not paying his quarterly taxes on freelance work and now being hit with the big lump sum, which he hasn't saved for... for the SECOND year in a row. What is that expression, "fool me once..."?

It's okay Mr F, we all know your good qualities too! :) Hope it all works out the best way possible!

Mr Furious said...

What is that expression, "fool me once..."?

If you're talking quarterly taxes for freelance, the expression is "Fool me ten times."

At least for me.

Mrs Furious said...

Mr F,
"If you're talking quarterly taxes for freelance, the expression is "Fool me ten times."
"
ROFL... oh god that is one of your best lines yet.

RE: taxes... yeah... I didn't want to say it.
