Wait. I’m supposed to know this shit?

I have been looking at my husband’s pickup truck sitting in it’s usual spot, unmoved for 6 weeks now.  I can’t drive it. I don’t want to drive it. It’s doing no one any good just sitting there and I said from the start I wanted to sell it.  But I kept putting it off. Today I grabbed my camera and the keys, gathered all the information I needed and placed an ad on craigslist.  I was very thorough, mentioning the mileage, work it needed, any features I could think of and within minutes I got an actual inquiry in my inbox.  “What is the engine”? Engine? I’m pretty sure it has one. I don’t want to look.  What if I find a large hamster wheel under the hood?   I’m not ready to deal with all of this. Shit.

    I laughed at this. Just respond that it has an engine that runs.

    If you need assistance with finding out what size engine, let me know. I can take a look, Sue.

    If someone wants to know about the engine, they can come take a look at it. 🙂

    Tell them to google the make and model of the truck and figure it out! On a side note….you should take a new pic w/the license plate not showing. They can easily track your personal information (name, home address, etc) with the license plate. I want to keep you safe so I can keep reading your posts! 🙂

      Omigosh! That’s so true! All you need is some Craig’s list loon coming and knocking on your door.
