A good piece of advice

My good piece of advice is to never say you have a fast car until you actually have a fast car.
I spoke to the buyer last night and he informed me that he has lost the key. Am I the only person out there who finds a suitable motor vehicle, within my price range and 3 miles from my post code, only to be told that the key is missing in action? Before writing this, I contacted the buyer again, for the latest in the missing key saga, but his mobile when to voice mail. I have also noticed the car in pursuit has been removed from Auto Traders website. So what's a girl to do?

Yesterday, the question from http://thecenterforimprovedliving.blogspot.com/
was 'Give a good piece of advice to live by' and I can't take any credit for the below profound slices of wisdom, but here are some of my favourites:

Keep clean hands
If you are wrong admit it, if you have wronged another apologize, make a choice every moment to do what is right.
If "you" are wronged forgive.

I'm attending a lunch date now, with an ex colleague who once worked in the office, and she may be freelancing for us when the schedules become chocker blocked again. I'm trying not to think about mislaid keys and cars removed from websites, instead I will concentrate on the lunch menu and the work load ahead.

But why has the vehicle been removed?! Surely he can't sell it without a key?! And surely he would have told me if he had sold it since last nights conversation?! What a palava.
