Some more context. The shovel in my pic was listed for $10. I live about a 30 minute drive from the seller, and was going to pick it up this morning. Then, when the seller contacted me, I volunteered to back out of the sale so that the other guy driving 120 miles can buy the shovel instead of me. The seller was thrilled. The other buyer is driving today and arriving tonight. Maybe he offered to buy it at a higher price than the original $10 listed price, and so that’s why the seller was happy when I backed out?
It’s still uncertain whether the shovel is really a TT and/or whether it’s even in usable condition (e.g., not bent or rusted out etc.)
another TT will eventually show up in goodwill, garage sale, or craigslist
some people are nuts.
