He’s telling them about Ray’s request to use his warehouse for his furniture, Adam didn’t want the clutter and came up with a better and cheaper solution, 100 bucks to hire his guy Rob to drive the truck and keep all of the furniture in Adam’s racing trailer.
Adam’s super generous and perfect offer was soundly rejected and it wasn’t due to malice or incompetence but Adam wants to know what did cause this to happen, again.
