Last year, I attempted to sell my car via the website Carsales.com.au…..the following is an account of one experience I had during this process….
For the most part, the people interested in buying the car were a bunch of scrotums! They were either ‘Tyre Kickers’ or fucking ‘Low-ballers’ – I think one guy offered me $4k….I was asking $7…..I politlely told him to ‘Fuck off’.
Eventually, after a few months of complete sales frustration, I received an email….
Now buy this point, might I start by saying, I had completely had enough! I was a live-wire…..a raw bundle of emotion, balanced precariously on the edge of sanity and madness….
I was literally ready to stab the next motherfucker who kicked my rim, or offered to buy the car for a fiver, a packet of Mentos and a reach around….
Anyway….so then I got this email….
Hello, just wondering if you are negotiable on the price as I have $6000 cash . Thanks Jacqui

I am no longer going to sell the car. I would rather keep it than sell it for the price you and many others are asking. I wish you the greatest fortune in your elusive hunt to buy something for nothing. Perhaps you might like to reconsider your choice? Why not find something in your price-range…..like a 1980 datsun 120y? It comes with a free midget and will definately fit in your mum’s garage…….Pfffft.
Maybe I was a little too harsh….but it’s like MacGuyver always says –
