Recently Brandon put up a new security camera so he could monitor the infinitely interesting nothingness that goes on in the alley behind his house. And in order to do that he needed to get a new, cheap computer to run the recording software on. So, like any good bargain hunter with a low sense of self-preservation, he turned to Craigslist. And he was shocked to immediately find a tech geek selling just the computer he needed. Brandon was elated. Until he drove across town and knocked on the door...
Warning: the following story is 100% true.
But alas, the small zoo of cats that liked to pee everywhere wasn't even the weirdest part of Brandon's trip. No, not by a long shot.
That's right, the whole time Brandon and the tech geek were discussing computers, a fat, bearded, completely naked man was slumbering on the couch. And the tech geek didn't seem to think this was weird or inappropriate while having a complete stranger over. Also, the fat, naked guy was a pretty sound sleeper, as a loud sales transaction did not so much as stir him.
But that was not the end of it. No, because soon after another fellow came walking out of the bedroom. In his undies. Acting as if the room he walked into - full of cat piss and naked fat men - was just the most normal thing in the world.
And so it goes that Brandon was never heard from again. Let this be a tale of moral warning to all of you, dear readers, as we mourn Brandon's doubtless mauling. Craigslist may seem like an easy way to find some cheap, used junk...but you're probably more likely to wind up as a heroin-addicted sex-slave with a Craigslist "massage" ad of your own than you are to actually find a good deal.
Anyone else had a bizarre Craigslist sales experience?
Cheers and stay classy, folks!
