Thank You Melissa and Sam

Dear Melissa and Sam,

Thank you for selling me this wonderful bike just 4 years ago for the generous price of only $10.
I have loved this bike and used it often.
It got me through that time when my car died and I rode it to work for a few weeks in the cold winter.
I rode that bike to friend's houses and on plenty of casual rides through the neighborhoods.
My first kiss with Ben when we were dating was after a ride on this bike you sold me.

And now the tires are worn, and need to be pumped before each time we take it for a ride.
The seat shows of sun damage, and the chain is a bit rusty.
It's time to say goodbye.

This thank you goes more out to Melissa for not knowing the real worth of this bike and for not consulting your husband before selling it to me just 4 years ago.

Because today I sold this bike to a nice gentleman for $80

I loved this bike and the memories I have with it are priceless.

Merry Christmas Melissa and Sam!

I don't know, Cathy. It sounds to me like the memories you have with that bike are worth about $70. Not priceless.

I think Melissa should get a $70 Christmas present.

What an amazing investment!

Melissa got had.

I knew it was worth a lot more than $10.00 dollars but Melissa said it was going to a good cause and you needed the help. Little did I know you would turn a profit on it 4 years later. Glad someone made money off the deal though.
