Once again Ted witnessed the power of wives at the car boot sale. “Will you take £2 for this?” said the punter to the husband, looking him in the eye. “Yes,” said the wife, “That’s fine.”
“How much is this?” asked someone. “I don’t know,” said the husband on the stall, “It’s my wife’s sale.”
And once again Ted witnessed honest people trying to sell the unsellable. “How much is the telly?” asked a man. “50 quid mate,” said the honest seller. “Does it work?” asked the interested prospective buyer. “It powers up but there ain’t no picture.”
