    Wants $125 firm for a total piece of junk:


    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Shithead even writes, "Have had it for years and never used it..... I was told it won't get as hot as some others b/c of the material. It is old and probably from the 70s."

    But then he writes this: "Price is firm, thanks for understanding" and once more for emphasis, "Again, the price is firm - no offers please."

    Firm? Really? Your price is firm for your non-working, rusted piece of junk? How is it possible people are this fucking stupid?

    "I know", says shithead, "people will try and low ball me.... that's not going to happen.... I'm standing FIRM at $125! You picked the wrong guy to negotiate with... I'm just too smart a business man"

    Pierre - you should move on. The marketplace will sort through this.

    Food tastes the same

    I know you think otherwise but if you did a blind taste test you couldn't consistently tell the diff

    I've experienced the opposite end of Craigslist stupidity too. I had a portable ac unit for sale. I wanted $125 so I purposely listed the ad at $175 so I have more negotiating room. I think I paid like $230 a year or two earlier.

    I probably would have taken $100 depending on the response. Anyway, 54 y/o obese female comes over and, after testing it our, hands over the full asking price. She didn't even ask once for a better offer
