I put two single box springs on craigs list for 60 dollars, they were brand new and I just wanted to get them out of the house. The guy tried to get me to sell them to him for forty dollars claiming it would cost him twenty in gas, I started to get pissed and told him if sixty was too much for him then he needed to go buy brand new ones, what a fucking asshole. He shows up at my house and tries to talk me down to fifty and I told him take them for sixty or leave.
He hands over the sixty dollars and then asks if his wife can use the bathroom and I said yes, she said no that’s ok and I told them they could go to the Marathon down the street and they had a real nice bathroom, then I closed the door. Shelby tells me a few minutes later that someone is walking up to the front door and it’s the asshole, he says he needs some rope or twine to tie down the mattresses and I told him he should have thought about that before he showed up here and home depot was down the freeway, then I closed the door in his face.
Was I rude? Absolutely, was he an asshole? without a doubt and once again here is another motherfucker wanting to take advantage of me but he didn’t get away with it and his wife was obviously embarrassed because he was such a cheap ass. I really hate people and I would be fine if I never spoke to another stranger again as long as I live because I am really tired of the bullshit and people trying to fuck me over. I am getting tougher and not playing games any longer and I refuse to give my time for free just to anybody.
I am nothing spectacular but I am nobody’s fool either, at least not any longer as I have been taught by the best how to block the bullshit kicks coming my way. I mean really, 60 bucks for two box springs and you are going to try to jew me down? Did you ever look at a couple a wonder what the fuck one of them saw in the other? Well that was the case here as I looked at his wife and wondered what the fuck he had because he was nothing to look at and he had no fucking class what so ever.
I may swear a lot and I may speak my mind but I know I am not an asshole all of the time at least and yes I will try to barter with people but I am not going to try to screw them when I can see a deal in front of me. You have to be so damn careful especially dealing with craigs list and I didn’t even let that sob in my front door, o no I had one mattress on the front porch and the other I quickly shoved out the door and there was no way I was letting him in even if his wife did use my bathroom, which she didn’t.
I am learning to stand up against the jerks of the world and stand up for myself finally and it feels damn good because I refuse to be anybody’s victim as I once was. I must say if I can’t been scammed I would still be stupid and naive and I learned so much from that set of mistakes and it has served me well in my current life. I just cannot steal from anyone and I have tried, seriously I have but I cannot do it because my conscience will not let me and I do not get off on hurting others.
I have found most people do not care who they hurt and they do not care if you lose everything you have because they scammed you, people are just fucked up and I so do not belong here and I am so sure of it. I am only here because God obviously has me do his work in the form and time he so chooses. If it were up to me I would be so fucking gone, like yesterday’s weather because I seriously hate this world and cannot stand the people in it and how they are these days.
