I am sure you are all familiar with the Kelley Blue Book. We have all used it to determine fair value for buying a used car. Who am I kidding? I use it to find out how much I can get for my old truck if I decide to sell it and ride a bike to work. I might find myself thinking, if I just replaced that donut tire in the back and got rid of that rag for a gas cap I could get enough money to pay the mortgage for another month.
When doing financial research using the Kelley Blue Book you have to identify the car's condition. The choices are excellent, good, fair, and poor. I think they should add another category after poor called Kids. At the very least they should ask, Do you have kids? What ages where they during the period of time that you owned this car? The consumer needs this information.
I started considering all this today after I cleaned Arica's car. Before we had Braden the back seat never needed to see a vacuum. It was always clean. Today when I opened the back doors it looked like we had been feeding chickens in the back seat.
Today I will continue my quest to show a lack of creativity by offering another list. This is a list of things I found in the back seat while vacuuming the car this morning.
- Untouched Fig Newton
- About 1/16th of a Pop Tart
- A rock
- Purple Froot Loop dust
- An unidentifiable plastic piece of a toy
- A bouncy ball
- A straw
