One of my favorite ads was for a car no longer needed because its owner was "going off to collage." Now, while the practice of using media in a collective fashion to create art can certainly be so rewarding and time-consuming that some are left with no time to drive, I had a feeling he meant "college." Hopefully, once he gets there, he'll learn how to spell "college" and also how to leave vital information. See, this was early in my search, before I instituted my one-strike policy of dealing with people, so I actually contacted him. (In fairness, he took several hours to reply to my email, so perhaps his fingers were sticky with glue and covered in bits of construction paper.)

"Sorry, no time to drive, must finish my masterpiece!"
I asked where I could see the car, and he said he'd "be at the location all day." I replied that the location wasn't provided, to which he responded, "I'LL BE AT THE LOCATION ALL DAY." Five minutes later, someone impressed with his collage must have taken pity on him and explained the communication problem because I finally got an address, which, of course, I did not go to.
