Sometimes events in my life end with a Seinfeld ending, and tonight was no exception. Earlier this week, my condo building informed me that they are power-washing the garage, so I need to remove my car from my parking spot this Friday. Well there are a couple issues with this. First of all, I have a car and a motorcycle and a bicycle in my parking spot. Second of all, I’m going to be in Montreal on Friday playing in a hockey tournament so I’ll be unable to move it that day. The last issue is that there is nowhere to park my car outside because there is only 1 hour parking on the streets from Monday to Friday. So you might say I’m in a bit of a bind.
Well I brought the Jeep back from my parents last weekend and left the Acura at their house because I figured I’d have a better chance of selling the Jeep if I had it with me in Toronto. As it turns out I was able to sell the Jeep tonight, so now I don’t have to worry about clearing my parking spot on Friday because the Jeep is gone. I’m sure I can find somewhere out back to put my motorcycle for the weekend, so that shouldn’t be an issue.
Although I didn’t get as much as I had hoped for the Jeep, the buyer paid mostly in twenty dollar bills, so it sure feels like a lot of money. The smart half of me says the money should go on my line of credit, but the crazy side of me wants to purchase a BMW FS650 GS motorcycle. I think I’ll make the smart choice this time and either invest the cash or put it toward my line of credit. I’ll make sure not to bring the cash with me to Montreal, now that would be calling for trouble, eh Mikey?
Good choice,Jim. Save the money and don’t push your good luck.
