You ARE right. It shouldn't be your problem. I just sold a car and used a bill of sale that identified the sale in "as is" condition with no written or implied warranties. Call him and tell him to get his truck out of your driveway.

We forgot to right "as is" on the reciept. But, I read on our Provincial Liscencing Office website, that a car sold without a valid warranty is sold as an "as is" vehicle.

Andy is right and so are you. Tell him to get his truck out of your driveway or you will have it towed. Leave the keys right where they are, you don't want to be accused of theft. If it gets stolen...not your fault.

Judge Joe Brown, Judge Judy, and Judge Mathis would concur.

Yeah. I agree, with you all. I actually like this guy, he is a brother of a good friend of mine and was my sons hockey coach for a season. Small village, see him passing by on a regular basis. I just want to make sure I'm not the unreasonable one, here.

Thanks, everybody.

If he raises a stink, I would tell him, (with a witness who knows you), that if he wants you to take the truck back, this is what it would cost you to restore it to the conditions prior to the sale. Add the original sale price and every cent you would have to spend, plus a reasonable wage for you for the hours that you spend doing it.

I would explain all of that in writing, make two copies and have both of your sigs and the witnesses sig on both originals. Give him one after he pays you that much.

If he refuses to pay you that much, then tell him you'll have to get the police involved to settle it.

I would call the police and discuss it with them first. They've already seen and done it a hundred times.

Wait until you talk to him, I have a feeling his Sweetie put her foot down and said get that thing out of my yard

I would explain your position and see where it goes but, I would not be the loser in this thing small town or not. After all he is the one who knocked on your door.

My thoughts too, AB.

I hear you AB. My wife and I had a chukle about that also. It boils down to principle for me. I was minding my own buisness, and I have my rights.

Tomorrow, friday the 12th I will officially be 37 weeks pregnant. I will have finally made it to my "safe date," and this pregnancy will be considered full term. Tomorrow I will also go to my OB office to find out if I'm going to have to continue the activity limitaions (basically bed rest) that they put me on today. Some may think "why on earth would they put a woman whose pregnancy is considered full term on such limitations?" I strained (pulled, if you prefer) the lowest segment of my rectus abdominus muscle (the muscle that makes "6-pack abs) and the tendon that attaches it to my pelvis. These, along with the other abdominal muscles, are what a woman flexes when she pushes in labor to help her uterus push the baby out. If they determine that I did enough damage, they'll limit my activity to give the muscles rest and allow them to heal, and to try to convince my body not to go into labor before they've had enough time to do so. So here I am, in what should be the home stretch, and I have to pray that I don't go into labor any time soon. They won't try to stop labor if it starts, of course, as the risks of intervention would be much greater than the risks of letting my body do its job, but if I do go into labor soon I'll likely do more damage to the injury and my recovery will be even more fun! Thank goodness my toddler is so loveable, because I already have many offers to take care of her while DH is at work so I can rest (we have no family in the area to help). Just when I'm ready to be done this pops up! Well, it won't kill me, so I just have to assume I'll be stronger once I make it out the other side.
