Years ago, when you wanted to sell something, an automobile for example, you put a classified advertisement in the newspaper. There were hundreds of those ads published every day. Usually there were fixed rates (ten words for $5 to run three days) and this brought a lot of money into the papers. Sadly, newspapers are disappearing and the “quaintness” of these ads is being lost.
Eventually, even ten words weren’t enough when cars began to be equipped with “power” which might (or might not) refer to steering and/or brakes. And then “air” came along. Ten words weren’t enough any longer. And that was the beginning of the demise of short classified ads in the newspapers. Put that in your Bluetooth and smoke it as you watch your rain-sensitive wiper blades go into action as you drive by an overactive lawn sprinkler.
