    The saga continues... I'm almost ready to put the busted iPad in the recycle pile. A guy kept emailing me again and again and AGAIN to text him with info and directions, but just couldn't get through his head that I couldn't deduce his cell# from his email address.:D He's finally says "ok, ok, I just come to your house" and I said, "No, no you will not." (he didn't have my address). After all this back and forth (more than a day... hey, I was amused) he asks "what version is iPad Air? 1, 2, 3??" [smacks forehead]
    I'm reminded of the Harvey Danger song "I've been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding...":rolleyes:

    Maybe I will keep it listed for another month or so, just for material for this thread.:D

    (P.S. loaded that song up on Youtube... it's 22!!! years old. What. the. hell. happened to the years?)

    Write a book like, oh nuts, I forget his username - the one that wrote the book about his adventures answering ads like "Beautiful Russian women want to meet you now".

    My new favorite thing is people who want to meet you at your home and you tell them to meet at the corner, they suddenly disappear.

    A lot of thieves and hustlers on Criagslist and Offer Up. Jackbags.

    There was a guy here locally that got jacked for a laptop he was selling. They met a McDonalds and the two dudes robbed him. Everyone needs to be careful, buyers and sellers.

    And I remember when buying a 9mm pistol I just went to the guys house, confirmed that he was the true owner, gave him 500 bucks and left with the gun, times sure have changed, HAA HA

    The iPad saga ends... She decided she had to come get it today. It's been snowing since 5pm yesterday, probably about 7" on the ground. Roads are passable, but covered with snow so you're not going anywhere fast. She texted me at 4pm! about coming to get it. "Ok, please drive safe." I waited over an hour for her at Target (shopped some too), no show. I drove home (7-8min). She calls me at 6:30! she's there.
    This woman (Asian, VERY heavy accent) showed up in a Porsche Cayenne Turbo with 20+" tires, super low profile, in the damn snow. 60 miles, 2.5 hours, sliding all over the place (her actual words were "I'm so loose, side side"- SWEAR TO GOD!) to buy a $50 iPad with a busted screen. It's for her store cameras, she says.. $100k+ SUV, but can't spring $125-150 for a more local iPad that doesn't have a busted screen.

    MAN, SOME PEOPLE?!?!

    I've noticed repeatedly through the years that rich people get that way by squeezing every buck they can. I had an Uncle like that. My cousins thought he was comfortable but he was loaded. He never gave them anything until they went to dispose of his estate. Both can probably retire now.
