W in TF is wrong with people!?! If you advertise something for sale, ESPECIALLY if you actually are the small independent upstart you are portraying, and are contacted by a potential customer...I would think that you would be especially helpful when answering questions!
I found an 80 series I saw on FB marketplace that is in Raleigh. It meets the criteria for me to take the time and actually go look at it. Like always, I dug a little deeper into the seller's profile to see if there were any red-flags. This one was actually a "business" page for what looks like a one-man niche LC sales upstart....cool...seems legit...I'll see if I can help a brother out during all this COVID nonsense.
I contact the guy and get an immediate response. He openly gives an unsolicited reminder about some minor rust issues he noted in the write-up and with pics...I'm feeling good b/c I was aware, and it didn't seem like he was trying to hide anything. I asked if I could come see the truck this weekend...as his schedule allows...."no problem, how about such and such time?". Cool...all I need now is a specific location to go to...
me: "Great, see you then. All I need is an address for where you are."
him: "I'm around Capital Blvd and 540"
me: "There's a lot around Cap Blvd & 540 and I'm unfamiliar with the area. Is there a more specific location you can give me?"
him: *couple hours later* Sunday may be a better time.
me: no problem, what time and where?
him: around lunch
MFer....I don't thing you understand how this works!!! I am 100% WILLING to alter my schedule, drive an hour away from home, and potentially hand you THOUSANDS of dollars...ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GIVE ME A REFERENCE POINT CLOSE ENOUGH FOR ME TO COME FIND YOU!!!!
Every time I talk myself into being more positive and accepting of the general masses, some f@ckt@rd like this comes along. If anyone needs me, I'll be back here in full "I f@cking hate John Q. Public" mode.
P.S. - I still don't have an actual location.
We went through similar recently when looking for a pulling truck
"Oh yeah, come by Saturday and I can show you the truck"
Heather " Cool, we'll come by Saturday and if I like the truck I'll give you a deposit, you get the title and we will pick it up Monday"
Idiot, "Well we have a month old baby and I only want to bring her out in the cold once in order to sell the truck""
What? Who the hell brings a month old kid outside for someone to look at a truck?? Does the kid have the title?
Heather "I'd like to see it in daylight"
Idiot "I don't get home till 7PM weekdays"
Heather "That's why I want to come Saturday during the day"
Idiot "Can only bring the kid out of the house once when it is this cold"
They probably are attracted to your sweet, lovable nature. Its like a nectar to themLegit rant. Why do wasps like to make nests behind my driver side side view mirror every spring? Especially in the truck with no AC???
Last year they were even finding their way into the 80’s headlights!
This! I love Carolina wrens, they also evidently love my riding mower. So much so that they made a nest in it during early spring of 2020. I didn't realize that they had moved in until the eggs had hatched. Couldn't move the nest after that. I also found out it's illegal to do so because of the migratory bird act. So my mower was a home for birds all summer long.For me it’s not wasps, but wrens! I can’t leave my garage open for more than an hour a day without a couple of wrens trying to build nests. Last night I shut the garage door and one got trapped in there overnight. Bird sh@t all over Amanda’s LX and the poor bird was practically squawking its head off at 6:00 this morning, wanting out.
