Craiglist Ad for a gun safe. Had to share this - funny and disturbing.

    Somebody email him and offer $100.00 then post the response. I would but my email reflects my office address and I really don't want Bubba showing up with a baseball bat.

    Yeah, it is actually a clean safe at a good price. If he really is a big strong guy he'd probably help someone move it if they kicked in $20.00. If I was in the market for one I'd want to go just for the life experience. Get ready for the 'all women are all greedy whores and leaches' speech; that is if he lost all his stuff in a divorce. Would suck though if he was really mental and started swinging over any little comment.

    Yeah, I am 255 lbs and no wimp so unless he is Shaq he is out of luck. Most guys that talked like that are little and have something to prove. Still - entertaining though.

    A lot of people are going through that. Doing real good providing. Then goes the job and he's slowly losing everything. I hope he doesn't lose "IT". It sounds like it could be really serious. Get that guy someone to talk to. We've all read it in the paper or seen it in the news. And he has guns...?

    Ok, if I were a prospective purchaser of this I'd have to wonder just what his threat means. Honestly, the guy said that he's basically sold off/lost his guns...but the person coming to look at it wants to put guns IN IT, meaning I'm armed and he isn't. Hollow threat? Pretty obvious!

    whatta rube. But it is an ok price I think.

    Saved for posterity as the ad will soon disappear. Hope the guy lands on his feet and gets a new job and girlfriend (although from the ad, I suspect I know why she left). I still find the story sad. I suppose that it can't be that bad that he'd just run out and buy another xbox....unless maybe he's planning on the government feeding him and paying his rent. I X-ed out the phone number is all.

    Why not show a little compasion for your fellow white person and just let it go or ,actually buy his safe rather than showing not only me but everyone else how childish this all looks and sounds

    It's a good price. If I actually needed it, I'd already be on my way.

    Part of me wants to call to ask about the safe, part of me wants to instigate. What to do?:angeldevil:

    At least craigslist still has some humor.

    I live real close to Kennedy School, It is tempting as I have 2 safes about that size that have proved to be not that big!
