    A Shoddy Cart ?? I sold a Shoddy Cart ?? Never !!!! I offered a nice, previously driven cart - and the option to purchase wheels for same -- that option was not selected -- and the cart has yet to be paid for -- rumor has it that the Bank of Rome has a "retrieve order' out for the cart -- they purchase all of our paper at a discount.

    I would ask that if a wheel-less cart is seen being dragged through the streets of Rome that the Bank be immediately advised of it's whereabouts !!

    • Having just reviewed the aforementioned thread regarding the sentencing of Senator Honorius, I find myself in a bit of an embarrassing position.

      The Specifications were not made know to me in advance - I prepared no shop drawings or submittals for approval - we provided the cart and donkey based upon a verbal agreement and received no change order for adding wheels to the cart so that Gaius could kick them

      The donkey, a prime specimen in his day, had just recovered from an intestinal affliction that caused him to shed some excess poundage - he was, however fully qualified to drag the cart (empty) to the city gates and perhaps a short distance beyond so as not to restrict their ability to close.

      We regret any inconvenience our minor deviation from the requirements may have caused -- we simply had not been appraised of your specific needs -- Blame your agent - not us.

        Now we're never gonna get our noodles! Honorius will be lucky to make it to Illyria let alone China.

            Not so far.



            The cart you provided probably won't make it much farther than that.

            • There may be a minor complication the - umm "cart" was manufactured as a lumber skid -- we had intended to add wheels for a nominal extra charge - but that was rejected -- in it's "sold as is" condition -- it may make it to the city gates -- with some minimal assistance and a veterinarian strategically located to provide Zeb the Donkey with a little motivational adrenaline shot.

              This is all too embarrassing

                Hopefully (for you, not Plinius) your lions perform better than Zeb!

                    Perhaps a rescue expedition is in order. Honorius couldn't possibly made it even to the Rubicon.

                      I can't cross the Rubicon. I might get my toes wet.
