=============================================

Thomas A: Would u take 2,000 cash if I pick up this weekend

Me: No

Thomas A: What all does it need to be on the rad? Road

Me: Nothing

Thomas A: What is the least I will take

Me: You honestly don't realize that offering me half of my asking pricing is insulting, do you? I mean, you're not trying to be a jerk, you just never stopped to think about it, did you?

Thomas A: Well I tell u what I have looked at about ten dumps in last 5 days days and nothing to make u mad but I have had several dumps in same condition as your s if not a little better for my asking price but needed a $100 break booster and only reason I didn’t buy them is because I’m usually 2 1/2 hours away to get home needing a break booster so yes I have thought of my asking price it’s reality man
Thomas A: So at this point I’m not interested in your dump

Me: That's good, because I sold it yesterday.

  • LOL, that guy must have taken the "Negotiating Skills" class offered at Vortex.
  • And when he says he will pick it up this weekend he really means that he won't be there at the appointed time and might show up late on Tuesday with $1,300 in cash and the rest at the bank if you really really want him to get it.

    There is an art to low-balling, this guy doesn't know it.
  • If I hadn’t been so tired I’d have dragged it out longer.
  • Thomas, take that money you had for the truck & sign up for
    a good, basic writing improvement course. Please.

    'cause u riting sucks bad

    Did he really just type the correct word after initially misspelling it rather than go back and just correct the wrong spelling?

    Oh - and what's a break booster? Is that something to help you dance better in the subway in the 80s?
