 Something funny happened yesterday

PostSubject: Something funny happened yesterday   Mon Mar 04, 2013 10:44 am

I had one of them 5 ft long metal pry bars for sale on Craigslist. $25. Normally they sell for $45+. Had a local guy call me and wanted it. I meet him out at the street. He looks at it, says its not curved enough at the end, going to use it to pry broken concrete out. Wants to give me $20 instead. I said no. Said he found one he wanted at box store, I said, if thats what you need to do the job, then you should go buy that one instead. Finally, he pulls $25 out of his pocket lol.

Ironic amusing part: He's a young 30ish British guy, Drives up in a nice Range Rover, His wife(?) sitting up front wearing a nice fur coat & he whats to pay me $5 less? No way dude!

The bar cost me nothing, was worth more than I asked for, The price was more than fair. I was waiting for him to say something smart alec, So I could remind him we once kicked his ancestors ass off of America & I'd be glad to kick his ass off as well lol. Didn't happen .

I have a bar that size that has a point at one end and a flat angled section at the other.

I don't use it often but it sure comes in handy when I need it.

Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do.

Mine wasnt round at the top end (in the pic) & the end was cut like a wedge shaped point. I do have an old pry bar I keep but never use it.

A good CL tip if you ever sell something. If you want say $50 for an item, Post it for $60. Then, If they ask if you'll take less, you can drop to $50 & sell it & both of you are happy. I've done this plenty of times.
