 Over the willows and through the woods to my buyer home tour I drove. Near the end I almost put the Jeep into 4 wheel drive, that's how far out we were.

 What? The buyer wants me to pay HIS closing costs? How rude! Why shouldn't I pay the note on his Hyundai just to seal the deal? Some agent you are!
