the pleasure of denialPosted: August 29, 2013
We sat around our table, boxes as companions, drinking champagne from antique glasses supping on Chinese takeout on paper plates. We toasted Jan who in one week had prepared, boxed and cleared out twenty-eight years of possessions.
The new buyers offered a cash deal if we could be out in two weeks, but we lost the first week because we were on vacation. The new tenants asked to buy our lawn-mower, freezer, three desks, some mirrors and some other items. We made them a very good price offer, and they countered with $100.00.
We kept the mower and the mirrors and I took $101.00 worth of pleasure of donating everything else to charity.
Moral: Look for win/win propositions that are fair. Sometimes you might just screw yourself.
