I think so. Can't remember.

Begin short rant.

craigslist buyer:

"Will you take $XXX.00 cash?"

Why do you think it putting 'cash' in an offer makes it bettter? WTF did you think I was going to do, finance your stupid ass?

End of rant.

And usually the ones that do that are scams.

They dont wanna look at it just offer cash, then the goofy ass story begins.

I always think the same thing when I watch Pawn Stars. They always tell the customer that they'll give them $100 bills or cash money. Like the customer went in expecting to get paid in sea shells.

Here's a new one. I'm asking $450 for the item.

Buyer: "Will you take $375?"

Me: "No, but would consider $400."

Buyer: "Ok, I can do that. I live in Lapeer, can we meet in Flint?"

(In case you don't know where Lapeer is, it's 18 minutes or so from Flint. I am 1:15 from Flint.)

Me: "No. It'd cost me $25 in gas and 3 hours of my day. For $400, I can meet you in Ann Arbor. For $425, you get Brighton. Flint takes it back to $450."

Hmmm....no response....

Ok, it's 26 minutes. Not sure how it'd take an hour unless you went by way of Lansing....

LOL! I guesss you can find the long way around anything. Here's the same trip, different route. It cut 13 minutes off your travel time.

Oh yeah, your destination is Barnes Lake, MI, well north of Lapeer. This guy lived right in Lapeer.

Not sure why this turned into a debate? The entire point was, I'm not going to give you a price break then drive 2 -1/2 hours round trip to deliver something you want to buy unless you pay me for it, regardless of how far you have to travel yoursel.

It's sold anyway. Another guy drove down from...are you ready? Davison. Paid me full price.
