Allrighty... Just starting back home from a long 7 hour (one way) drive to get an "almost new" leather RV sofa that came out of a 2006 Newmar Mountain Aire. According to the owner, it is a $2,495 sofa. Unfortunately, it turned out to be kind of an unpleasant deal though. The gentleman had advertised the sofa for $500 and had lowered it a few days later to $400. While I was on the phone with him and found out how far away he was,(350 miles) I paused, letting him know I would have to consider whether or not it was worth the trip. He then said "I'll knock off $100 since you are the only one who has called and you have to come so far."
But when we got there and I held out $300, he freaked. "What? I need $400, not $300. I had it advertised for $500!" I told him "No, it's in there for $400 and I can show you if you would like." He said, "Yes, show me!".... So I did. After coughing a little pride and attitude, he pulled up on his pants and went in to ask his wife if it was okay to sell it for what he said.
She came storming out with major attitude saying "NO WAY! We can't sell it for $300!" He then turned and shook his head to me saying "No, we can't do that." I then said, "Boy, I sure wish I knew you were going to change the deal before I left Charlotte 350 miles ago." Then the wife turned and asked him if he told me $300. He said, "Well, I guess I did because he showed me the ad for $400 and I said I'd knock off $100." So the queen waved her hand and said "Give it to him! We don't go back on our word." Then she quickly disappeared back into the house, cussing and grumbling all the way.
The good news is we got a GREAT deal on a nearly new beautiful leather RV sofa... Woohoo! And the wife and I both like the color, can you believe it?
Now we start the 7 hour drive home...
