I have a real problem with the phrase above and it gets worse the older I get.
(I am not mentioning any names or locations or details of why I am writing this because this is only my opinion and others opinions may vary).
First, more and more I find pictures simply do not tell the truth in any way.......so we have to look and inspect for ourselves.
My definition of like new is simply............"Like New".
A car like new should be VERY close to the same exact car you locate on a new lot.
Of course we all know there are slight visual differences but not much in a like new car, camper, house etc.
A like new camper is not dirty, moldy, and dusty with spider webs under sinks etc.
A like new car has an almost perfect looking motor, interior etc.
As you might be able to tell.... I just experienced a "like new" sales pitch.
I am sorry if I come off as sounding mean but I really am tired of being let down because of this phrase.
Does anyone know why this happens other than the obvious thought that the seller actually thinks their for sale item is like new ?
Surely we are not that different in our visual interpetations ? Or are we...
Would you buy a like new dusty dirty car ? A like new moldy camper ?
I don't think so...........Rant off
Oh, my next rant will probably be about why people who try to sell something will not even try to clean it up.
I am actually amazed at some pictures I am seeing of for sale stuff lately........I saw a mower on craigs list for sale and the seller did not even pull the mower out from the knee deep grass that was growing all around it..........is this a new kind of advertising ?
You could not even make out where the mower was located... let alone the make and model.
BTW, this is a great forum with tons of very informative info. and very helpful people, thanks.
