Not...

Other grandson is looking for a dirt bike. Guy has one he's interested in, wants me to look at it for him.

Originally scheduled for yesterday after work (grandson's, not mine...) but canceled, rescheduled for today.

Grandson is already into overtime for this pay period so he said he'd meet me at his work and we'd go from there to look at the bike as it was pretty much in the neighborhood.

He works for a construction outfit on Mount Desert Island, Sou'west Harbor to be exact. An hour away this time of year.

So I grab a handful of tools, hop in the truck, drive over. Got there a bit early so I'm sitting in the parking lot waiting.

Phone rings. Guy cancelled at the last minute, I drove 2 hours round trip, burned around $15 worth of gas all for nothing. Not grandson's fault, but I told him "Look, the guy cancelled twice in two days. There are plenty of people out there that actually WANT to sell a bike. Invite him to explore the joys of single-participant reproduction and go to the next one on your list."

You need to acquire a little more patience :-D :-D :-D
nah, you done good!!
