Some folks are soooooooo picky.

When someone asks me a stupid question twice I come back with "What kind of oil did you want to have been used in the engine? or "How often would you like to have had the oil changed?"  I'm thinking some of you know how this scenario goes.  I first heard it from a "previously owned transportation facilitator" - "If it were that color in the morning lady would you buy it then?  "And No, we're required to return the log books to the manufacture by law!"

It has two bids and rests at $531.
