So, Mr "Maybe" house-purchaser who was oh, so enthusiatic about buying our home that he was even asking what would be a amenable date to move in. Then he shook our hands, said he'd go home (interstate) to discuss it all with his partner and get back to us. Well, he "got back to us" (as I have reported earlier) with an offer to buy at $65,000 under the price we are asking. We said a resounding 'No' and that, it seems, is the end of that! Oh, ha, ha!
Now I am reminded of the wonderful quote from A.J.Balfour, (in his 1918 Letter to Mrs Drew) who wrote, "It is unfortunate, considering that enthusiasm moves the world, that so few enthusiasts can be trusted to speak the truth".
What an excellent politician he would make! (Mr "Maybe", that is).
I hope there is a next chapter to this house-selling saga.
In the meantime, beware of enthusiasts in any guise.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
