So who is the GRIM REAPER? Posted 24th August
Saturday-TRURO CITY CATTLE MARKET-CAR BOOT SALE
John & Beth opened the gates at 8.30 am to prepare for the 10.00 am sale the forecast was showers to heavy rain so they asked the sellers “INSIDE or OUTSIDE”
INSIDE means you carry your selling items into the spacious cow pens!
OUTSIDE means you sell besides your car! CHILDS PLAY!
I asked 12 of the sellers ‘IN or OUT’ and the majority said OUT!
The 32 sellers were then parked outside to set up their stall and I started the sale at 9.55am
Shortly afterwards it started to rain and two sellers asked if they could ‘GO INSIDE’ I told most of the other sellers ‘if you want to go inside help yourself’
I travelled on to Mitchell to see the Landlord so we could make a decision if the 1.00 pm CAR BOOT SALE would go ahead because of the rain.
A lady phoned in a furious state calling me a conman and demanding a refund as she had been to TRURO selling in the rain!
I advised her that other sellers had moved inside but her complaint was so offensive I told her to send me an email about the complaint, more abuse so the call was ended!
I then received this text;
Your Boot Sale all weather Scam has been rumbled your £6.00 charge is for all facilities is false.
I will take my business elsewhere.
Your £6.00 gain will become a much greater loss. What goes around comes around.
Remember my words.
The Grim Reaper!
So she took her business elsewhere and arrived at MITCHELL (ours) to be told that the Car Boot Sale was cancelled due to rain!
