Flipping Houses – Ooops

By Tessa Dean February 2021

Joey and Willy picked up this house for $1.00. All they had to do was move it to another location. Willy told Joey it wouldn’t be a problem. His brother, Mac, could move the house for them. He’s a house mover he told Joey.

Mac arrives at the house and finally manages to get the house up on his truck. He never thought to ask the guys where he had to move it to so when they pointed at the skyscrapers, he was puzzled. On one side of the house was a community and on one side was all skyscrapers.

“Wait,” he said puzzled. “Are you telling me this house has to go through those skyscrapers to the other side of the city?”

Both guys just nodded lazily, grinning.

‘How am I supposed to get to the other side?”

“There’s a large park down the center of the skyscrapers. Just make it through the first tight street and enter the park and then exit at the end and go through that last tight street and there’s a piece of land on the other side waiting for it. We got it for a $1.00, all we have to do is move it. Cool, don’t you think?”

Mac shook his head. “This ain’t going to work fellas. I’m not sure I can get the house through the first set of skyscrapers even. What about the traffic lights and wires? Do you have permits to drive through there and then through a park and then through another set of skyscrapers?”

Willy asks, “What do need with all of that? Just drive through it. I seen you do it hunnerts of times.”

“Look guys, it ain’t that easy. You just can’t drive it through there.” He turned away, shaking his head. “I am going to get dinner while you guys figure this out.”

Willy left his truck and walked across the street to a restaurant to get dinner. Suddenly there was a ruckus going on outside. He felt his pockets and said, “Damn, I left the keys in the truck. I bet those fools tried to move it themselves.”

Sure enough Joey and Willy had drove off and as they were passing through the skyscrapers they took down the first set of traffic lights and wires and then hit the park with the house half off the truck. They kept driving until the house was all the way off of the truck and stuck with one side buried in the park and the other end up in the air. They didn’t stop either. They kept on driving pulling whatever happened to remain attached to the truck behind it.

Everyone was talking about these two crazy guys in the truck, but Mac stayed quiet. This was all gonna come back on him and his boss was gonna kill him.

    1. Thank you Sadje. It seemed perfectly logical to me and I watch way too many shows that flip houses and not all of them successfully move them. I had fun with that one.
