I passed a car today, sitting in the middle of an intersection. There was no driver, the flashers were blinking, and there was a “For Sale” sign in the rear windshield.
I hear two potential conversations in my mind. One goes like this:
“Mom, no one is going to see your car back here in this cul-de-sac. If you want to sell it, you need to put it somewhere that gets a lot of passers-by.”
The other conversation goes like this:
“Mom, this is the third time this has happened, and I’m tired calling AAA all the time. Let’s just throw a “For Sale” sign on it, and hope someone’s in the market.”
I thought the blinkers were a nice touch. You want your merchandise to catch the potential customer’s eye. It’s Marketing 101.
(Disclaimer: I discounted a third possible conversation, where the sign was unrelated to the car’s current location. John’s Razor applies here: Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however likely, is boring.)
