Like Son, Like Father
My parents are headed to Texas this weekend – Dallas, specifically. It seems my dad won an eBay auction for a pickup truck. Sound familiar?
Here’s the even-stranger part: last weekend he was in Michigan retrieving a pickup truck that he also won on eBay.
My dad has extra vehicles like some people have mice.
Apparently, while they were here earlier this month, the hotel they stayed at had free high-speed Internet access. Before they left, my dad made final bids on two separate trucks hoping to win one of them. I’ve already given you the punchline – he found out when he got home 7 hours later that he had won both.
My brother said it best: “Turns out the free high-speed Internet wasn’t exactly free.”
