Most stupid message while flogging a shiter


Recommended Posts

I was idly looking at local cars on the Gumtree app on my phone for no good reason a while back. Saw a Merc W201 and while checking out the photos managed to accidentally tap the automatic "Hi, is this still available?" message button. Seller responded quite quickly and I had to explain sheepishly that I wasn't actually interested in buying his car...😳

I did that with a house in Wales after looking at the shitemove thread.

After selli g a car stereo back in the day, the boy haggled, searched internet, called at least three folks, then an offer was made for it as it was not seen working just over half aski g price i said no and walked away, then  the prospective purchaser asked if i could fit it. No problems i said as i was in that business anyways. (think he was calling my bluff)

 

So purchaser calls someone for some more cash to be dropped off to buy the stereo. ( who ac5ually goes to buy something with lack of funds...)

Eventually the deal is done. He hands over the cash in coins, i hand over the stereo and associated wires, no problems. (Alittlemmiffed and heavier with the loose change) Then i said so what car is it going in... 

 

He said it was going in his nissan primera that was en route... waited an hour for it to arrive, then went inside the house amazed at the brass neck of the boy.

Two weeks later i heard from him again. Saying that i was  a crook as i never fitted the stereo.

Lost the plot by then and needless to say i never fitted it....

 

Still got a jar of 5p,10p,20p,50p coins somewhere..

The penny didn’t drop right away that he was asking if I had anything else for sale. I’m tempted to say yes just to see how many times he’ll ask “last price”.

Actually elaborate reasons why a lower price should be accepted are a good one. The only one I’ve had on gumtree is the commonly deployed distance card-

Im coming from X so will you acccept Y

Im sure there are much more short story worthy corkers out there

When i was selling my Discovery, i had hundreds of these.

the best one was a bloke in Glasgow offering me £100 because 'that's it's worth mate thats what they sell for and by time i've paid for fuel to collect and get home i'd be as well buying one local, it'd be cheaper for me m8'.

I really should have just responded with a simple 'Well fuck off and buy one locally then'.

People these days like to make their problem yours. That’s to say if they live in Dundee and you live in Portsmouth it’s your problem for living so far away so you really owe them a bucket of fucking cash. Same for the old vulnerability card, the amount of penniless, poor, amputee, divorced, decorated ex military personnel that I’ve had giving me a pitch first about why they’ve only got £50 to spend.

People flat out refuse to get the concept of an asking price.

The price stated is what the seller wishes to receive in their pocket. It's not the maximum of what the seller believes a buyer should spend including any associated expenses.

Imagine rocking up at a £500 car, no offers, and handing the seller £348 and telling him that's actually  £500 but the rest spent Money to get there, money to get back...oh and the 2 quid was for a ginster pasty i had on the way.... £500 as advertised M8.

The twat then went on to send me the full list of advisories on my own car as if I didn’t know, should of suggested if he wants something to love he could always buy one of these ...D4857A46-5AFB-4E90-910D-18B5FA176385.thumb.jpeg.273cbab9152059a3ef933e51cca0ddb0.jpeg

I often wonder what these people expect on a £600 car. Hopefully they just get royally fucked up the arse meddling about with minor problems at the garage. 

By sounds of it retirement hasn’t been kind to Ian if he’s dithering over a few hundred quid. 🤣

Here we have the curse of Mike Brewer.

Fucker thinks he can do an Edd China on it, get it for pennies, throw a bit of Auto Glym on it, sell it for £999.
