Friday Fictioneers — Pretty in Pink

“Pink?” Adam said. “You didn’t say in the ad that it was pink. You’d think you would have noted that in the ad.”

“My wife’s favorite colors was pink, young man,” the seller said. “I bought this boat for her for our thirtieth anniversary.”

“I hate pink,” Adam said. “If I’d known that, I wouldn’t have ridden my bike all the way here to see it.”

“So paint the damn thing if you don’t like the color,” the seller said.

“I don’t think so,” Adam said. “You should have said in the ad that the boat was pink.”

    Obviously doesn’t want to purchase the boat and wants to ‘bow’ out gracefully.

        We had an instance selling the cottage…. the viewer wanted a property in the country. We were apparently too remote….. read didn’t have a pub, shop, church, post office in fact nothing at all in the village, but we were on a main road!!.

    I don’t think Adam really likes boats. I’ve known people buy a car only because of its colour.
