Need....More.....Ammo....

We found a family interested in buying our house in Oklahoma. They saw a flyer Mrs. Bogey put up in the area. They came and looked at the house twice. They brought their children to see their potential bedrooms. They asked us to hold off replacing a piece of carpet because they wanted to have a different color. They were very interested. They went to the bank and got pre-approved. They wanted to make an offer. A very GOOD offer. We were happy.

Mrs. Bogey tried to get ahold of our real estate agent to write up the offer. The agent was unavailable. She called the office to try to get another agent. They didn't seem to care. Finally in the evening after the family's second visit, I had to call and CHEW SOME ASS to get an agent to agree to help us. She said she would collect the offer from the family in the morning.

This morning the family has reconsidered. They own their double-wide outright and might not want to make house payments again. Our offer fell through. (Incidentally....three teenage children in a double-wide? Dante Alighieri couldn't imagine such a thing.)

It's very lucky I am in Tennessee. Otherwise someone would die a slow painful death today.

What's a "double-wide"? I'm from the UK and am unfamiliar with the phrase.

A Double-wide is a trailer, or a "mobile home."
