A longtime journalist recently sent an email to a bunch of colleagues with notice of a typewriter for sale. The journalist sent along assurance that the machine works perfectly and is in excellent condition. His colleagues responded with some detailed queries about this “device.”
I must take issue with your comment that this device “works perfectly”. It appears to lack a monitor, has no ports, is minus a mouse and has no power cable. What sort of scam are you trying to pull?
What about your green eye-shade, your metal sleeve garters and the half bottle of rye in the bottom drawer? No journalist outfit is complete without ’em.
Does it come with a nervous, skinny kid who will come running when I scream, “COPY”?
Any questions of your own for the seller?
