1) THE SELLER.
Since beginning of time it seems that whenever we've wanted to sell something we've either hung a notice outside our cave, or on our local shop's notice board, or placed classified advertisements in Local, State, or Trade newspapers. Today we can even try placing for-sale ads on internet.
After placing our ads and seeing them published we expect phone to ring, or emails to come pouring in, so put off going shopping confident that we'll still get to game in afternoon after making our sale. When phone does eventually ring it's our friend asking for confirmation of our presence at stadium in an hour. The phone then starts going crazy and emails dribble in, so we have to stay in, only for those people to be "time wasters" or not to show at all.
The next call is from our friend giving us a serve for missing best game of season!.
There must be a better way!
2) THE BUYER.
It's time to look for our Daughter's first car, so after checking bank account we head off to local, then not so local used-car lots to get an idea of what's available.
Well now we know what to look for, so it's time to start looking through Local, State, and Trade newspapers to find car at a bargain basement price. A week and two missed games later this small task we've set ourselves is becoming a chore but we've got to do right thing for our all-of-a-sudden grown up Daughter ( seems like she was in diapers only a year or so ago!) haven't we?
