Vivichase I once met up with some guy on Craigslist to buy his used copy of Fallout 3, and I had deliberately left out the fact that I was girl since I assumed that it would help minimize the creeper potential. 40 minutes later, he’s still trying to convince me to trade the game for sex. Well, unfortunately, he had my phone number and email address, as I had responded to his ad.
Here are 25 of the most bizarre and just plain terrible Craigslist encounters from Ask Reddit.1. He was selling a graphing calculator and arranged to meet the buyer at a shopping center.
I was just going to rob you, but I heard some kids in the background when we were talking on the phone”3.
He plays with it for a minute, agrees it is in good condition, and passes it back to my friend.
On the screen, the buyer had typed, “You are kidnapped.” My friend finishes reading it; buyer locks doors and speeds up. Then the buyer stops, laughs, gives my friend money, lets him out and tells him to be more careful.2.
Jaydickchest My friend was trying to buy something off Craigslist.
He made arrangements to meet somewhere, agreed on price blah blah blah.
My friend agreed to ride to a grocery store with him to pick up batteries.
On the way back to where they originally met, buyer took the calculator to test it out.
You would think the possibility of being murdered and dismembered by a psycho would deter shoppers from Craigslist, but somehow it does not.
As much as we’d all want to save on a Play Station 3, sometimes you’ve got to weigh out value versus your life.
