From Madam Cholet:

Saw this ‘for sale’ sign at Conder shopping centre. It also stated that there would be no negotiation!

What’s Your opinion?

I was thinking along the lines of some kid being very pissed off with his/her old man.
Trailer must be something that old man acquired recently.

I think the writing looks more like that of someone who doesn’t come from an english-speaking background, maybe doesnt write very often and probably had to work hard to write this (I am guessing an older tradie or the like).

Fair enough price, sounds like a super trailer…

Hmm… Does Anyone Remember The Person Who Used To Post Here Under The Username ‘krats’?

I think the most remarkable thing is how they’ve managed to emphasise the title and first few words by over-writing – there’s no way I could do that. Well, I could, but you’d no longer be able to read it.

I hadn’t thought about the style of the writing, but now I have had another look, it reminds me of the style that we had to learn in junior school. And it looks very much like someone of that age group may have written it. Either that or someone who has not practiced writing much since learning it in junior school. Very traditional letter ‘p’ that I remember having to try and do.

Interestingly or rather absurdly, we were taught ‘joined up writing’, followed the next year by having to write totally in italics, just because that’s how the teacher wrote. After that we skipped back to joined up with a whatever you can managed overtone. consequently my handwriting lurches from straight up to a circular sort of style, to right leaning once I get going.

Whether it’s a mill or thirteen hunj, it’s too much for a box trailer.

Option 1] that mark before the 3 is a minus sign.

Option 2] that word isn’t “Chassy”, it’s “Classy”. Damn thing might be gold-plated. Gold-plated platinum. That would explain the million-dollar price tag.

Of course, a seller with any nous marks it at $1,000,299.95.

Love the wonky old person’s running writing! This is practically a work of art! And those aren’t commas; all three are decimal points! Bargain!

Funny, my first thought was it looked like the dodgy, oversized cursive I saw people use in High School. Ironically the same high school in Southern Canberra where people were so bad at Maths, they had to introduce remedial classes.

One million three hundred dollars for a trailer and not negotiable too?

I wouldn’t pay a cent over one million one hundred.

Surely its $1,000,300.00! That price seems reasonable to me, especially as it has a unique chassy instead of a regular chassis.

dks00k 10:41 am 13 Mar 13

Does that mean one thousand three hundred dollars ??

Chassis*
