what a fucking idiot.


guy was asking way too much to start off with 90% of msrp (we're talking about a 3000$ synth, in production, available in store). Maybe the high asking price was just to keep away the tweakers?? So I go see the item and talk him down, we negotiate back and forth, we settle and agree on a price (78% of msrp). and then he tells me he has to call his friend cause he's only a part owner. turns out his friend wants 50$ more then what was even listed in the ad and won't budge on the price.

what a waste of time.
turns out they actually own it 4 ways, which is causing them sharing problems and why they need to sell it. had I known I wouldn't have even bothered.
clowns.

Why didn't he pay the other owner the original 50%, that he wanted, then keep the remaining cash for himself? You didn't consider making that offer to the guy?

coordinating how they share the money isn't my business.
the one guy holding out wanted an extra 100$ for himself (quick math).

i think a lot of those craigslist posts that are fake. why do they always demand a photo of your dick before they're respond?

one time i answered a roommate ad on craigslist. it was a pair of girls. we arranged over email to meet at a starbucks. gave them my number too. sat there for like an hour after the arranged meeting time at which point i got an ip-relay call from them telling me that they got into a fight and one of them got stabbed and there was blood everywhere, and therefore couldn't come to starbucks.

That's crazy. why are people so shootey shootey or stabey stabey in austin?

in unrelated news.
I live in a triplex, and the two other floors are empty because my landlord is selling. The Realtor has taken it upon himself to leave the doors to those apartments unlocked. is that legit?


and to get back on topic, should I just forget about that synth, or should I bother and manage the idiots to get what I want? how soon should I call em back?

Our rent is $3250 a month. The landlord wanted $3423.33/month but we managed to talk him down because it's ugly and old and has no character and falling apart. We pretty much never have anything to do with each other, but when the bees came and set up shop in one of the walls we called him and he sent a guy around to kill them.

is that nz dollar?
still, $3250 is a lot, even if it's nz dollar. i hope it's nz dollar, though, otherwise it'd be even more.

for $3200 a month you could get a hella nice McMansion in American suburbia. Assuming you have another grand a month left over for an Escalade to roll around in

but no, you're right, if you can afford such a rent, why don't you buy a palace or something? in fifteen years, you'll own it.

some people don't know how to deal with larger transactions?


I guess I'm asking:
is 300$ off a 1000 item is the same to them as 300$ off a 3000$ item.
vs
30% less is across the board regardless of the starting price?

I need to sell two old sets of wheels for my Z on Clist. Not looking forward to being offered $800.00 for a $1500.00 set of wheels and tires and/or being stabbed.

I could stab the guy and get the synth for free.

I'll consider it.
