Short Code

Saturday January 17 19:48

Shorthand code, accepted by convention and practice. Minivan. For sale. Call this number to discuss. Oftentimes a price will appear in grease pencil like this, along with the number. Here, just a dollar sign, as if written in haste and without consideration as to price.

Why do I blog this? Observation of the use of this curious short code relying on conventions for owner sold vehicles. Not necessarily true, but what struck me as well was the possible correlation between selling a minivan and the current credit crisis or whatever the heck is going on. Aren’t minivans the kind of thing you get when your second kid comes along and the one thing you basically keep for quite some time?
