Auto Sales Crisis May Explain Some Things...

Like why my freakin' Vespa hasn't sold yet. Evidentally, auto sales are at a 20-year low.

See? It's not that I'm an idiot, I just have really, really, really bad timing. Three months ago, people couldn't get enough gas-efficient transport, and now they aren't buying anything.

Here I was getting all down on myself.

For the time being, I'm going to keep trying to sell the darn thing.

Also, this is my 700th post. That means there must be, like, 10 that are worth reading. Go me.

I don't understand why scooters (or anything fuel efficient) isn't selling as that is a perfect way to reduce expenses, but perhaps people are still locked into loan payments, but even though you park your gas guzzler, you are still saving every time you scoot around. Also there are always those who can afford to buy, but don't when they read the doom and gloom on the internet. Perhaps you should change the wording of your ads to reflect the economies of having a scooter. It only takes ONE buyer to make your day.

It seems like since you live where you can ride all year 'round that someone would be able to afford your scooter. There are still some of us who are working and CAN buy things. Congrats on your 700th post. Are your fingers tired yet?

I've had Sophie up for sale for 5 weeks and only gotten 1 call. My timing must be bad, too! Although I'm not heartbroken about it.

700 posts or have you typed 700 letters? I'm only taking this jab because we live so far apart!
