    So I have been trying to sell my del sol rims/tires on craigslist. They are in pretty good shape for 15+yr/old rims but they're at my parents house and I am trying to get rid of them.
    Asking $150obo (and IMO they're worth more)

    I had them up for a month and got one bite. I told him I would meet him on Friday (it was a Tuesday) and when I called him Friday....he decided to do something else. My dad said...."Shit, tell me, next time, and I'll meet up with the buyer" So I got a call last night from some guy (who sounded waaaaaaaay stoned). It was 8:30pm and he wanted them that night. I said...."uh (as I think of my dad passing out already) no." So they said tomorrow at noon (but they wanted me to call to remind them of the time/engagement....like a flippin' wake up call). I called my dad about their need for a wake up call....he said he would call and all was set. They finally showed up at a C.J's (late) and the guys were all effed up (but not stoned.....tweaking instead) Soars all over their face from picking and everything. Vets of the spoofinating (aka tweakers) lmao. The guy tried to say he didn't want the tires....and then offered $130. My dad said "No." I told my dad no lower then $140 (b/c 2 tires are worth $40 a piece) But before my dad could tell him that I'll take the $140....the guy got all aggressive and pissed off. He said, "But is says Best Offer!!" So my dad said he was authorized to take $140. The guy became even more aggressive (like he was about to beat up my old man) so my dad slammed the tailgate of the truck and told the guy he was outta there. He called my dad a bunch of old man names and my dad left (driving in different directions to avoid them following)

    So....my rims are still for sale!

    this is why my friends and i pretty much always bring someone else with us when we are going to meet someone to buy from, or sell stuff to... regardless how much money is involved
    and as a general rule at least one of us is armed

    wow that would have likely gotten really ugly if that happened to me or my friends

    being accosted by multiple non uniformed "officers", in what appears to be a strong arm robbery, is definitely likely to result in weapons being drawn... and the situation really doesnt look like it has any chance of getting better from that point forward...

    doesnt sound like much fun at all really

    Word. I have a friend and knife or Leatherman in my back pocket.
    This would have ended really badly.

    I had a friend who was basically snuck up on by a police officer. Came up behind him and threw his arm around his neck. My friend, on instinct, tossed him. Left with pretty bracelets on. Had it thrown out later because the cop did not properly identify himself.

    I forgot to mention he called my dad "Effing old man....you don't know $hit" And my dad replied, "Oh thanks, effing strung out tweaker."

    Never thought I would have such a hard time getting rid of 150 used rims/tires

    remember, they want your shit. It's their problem if they have an issue with price and delivery. next time, have the buyer meet you and a friend near home infront of a large parking lot with alot of people.

    make sure you have discussed price and a specific time before hand. If they show up late GTFO, it shows them you dont fuck around and your serious. Make the frice firm next time too.

    well i knew he had a LS block with CTR's in it so.... I Waited a few months and found this guy because he wa slling his LS with CTR pistons, I asked my buddy to call him on speaker phone, I recognized his voice instantly! I gave my buddy a thumbs up and he agreed to meet us up at the same gas station were he sol me the tranny.

    So we took my buds car and I hid in the back seat(his windows are tinted and it was dark out). When we got there I instantly felt my stomache in a knot.....It was him in the same car. I told my buddy to " talk to him and make him get out of his car". He was bullshitting with him for about two mins and then I pop out of the back with a smile on my face. I asked him "do you remember me??" He then starts to try to go back to his car but I grab him by the back of his pants, threw him against his car, and beat him silly.

    Once that was said and done I quickly told him " dont scam people asshole, Next time some one might kill you".

    since the gas station was close to the 99 we quickly got out of there and headed to a walmart to buy a new shirt for me because mine was stained lol.

    Its been some time, but i still get the chills when I see the fuzz in my apartment complex.

    couldn't have said it better myself. if ya have friends always bring one with you when your selling or buying, if there is cash involved times are tough ya have to remember, not all people are honest and all it takes is some douche to jump you and your out the cash and the product. 10 times out of 10 whenever i buy or sell anything i always have at least 12 little friends with me that can run faster than you.
