Challenge? Or opportunity?

Challenge? Or opportunity?

I was talking to a builder the other day.

He told me he had bought a scooter because petrol had gone up.

I was curious how he got all his tools to work.

He said he didn’t have to.

Because he had started leaving his van at work.

He explained he would be at each job for a couple of months.

So all he was doing was taking his one ton of tools from home to work.

And it was costing him a fortune.

But being a savvy builder, he didn’t just buy any scooter.

He bought one that is super rare.

Only 50 in the country.

He reckons the scooter will be worth more than the van one day.
