YSAK 352: My mom's furniture, is, like, gross

Please buy my mom's funky retro couch so she'll stop bugging me.

Okay, here's the deal. My mom has this couch and chair set, plus some matching lamps. Check out the picture. I love my mom. She's old. It's old. But it's in good-as-new shape. It's a weird furniture set. I think they got it when they got married in the sixties. It was always in the front room. Remember when houses had front rooms? Those rooms where no one ever went? With furniture, carefully placed but never used, like in a museum? Couches that were never besmirched by any human butt? That's where this set was parked for decades. I always thought it looked creepy. But someone might like it. Maybe you. Maybe not.

But that's not the problem. The problem is, my mom lives in Sherwood Park. I live three hours away. And they can barely surf the web, let alone set up a Kijiji account, place an ad, and upload a digital picture. So they've got me doing it. And, don't get me wrong, I like doing them favors, but the whole "Have you posted the ad yet?" phone call thing is wearing me out.

So please, as a favor to me, call them and buy this couch set. They're absolutely asking too much, but that's my mom's influence. She's pricing out of nostalgia. It's not like the Queen once farted on the damn thing. If it were up to my dad, this set would go for ten bucks. So talk them down in price and my dad will convince my mom to take your lower offer so he can reclaim that piece of the garage.

Please... just call them. So they stop calling me.
