Contacted the person but no response. Plan to use it to hold RO water.. Will see.

I'll let you know but no respond from the person. Not a problem getting it from the city to my house. I'll probably need help getting it down to the basement (done it by myself in the pass but not a good idea now that I think about it).

I really wish the person would get back to me cause I would use it just for holding water (don't care about chip or scratch) and I have a place for it already.

Hmm.. the listing changed with location.

Look like a 90gal instead of a 125gal and not sure if it will hold water.

Oh well, take that one off the list. What were we saying about flaky people on cl? Lol

Oh don't go there. I had a person who called me from Indiana 5 times yesterday about the car. Wanted me to hold the car for him.. now he said he is leaving this afternoon and drive to NJ and wanted me to hold the car for him.

What's your address? I am going to have him come meet me at your address. .LOL

I don't know.. About 10 years ago when I listed my car for sale. A guy called me from Arkansas and asked me my closes airport. They were at the airport a few hours later that day and asked me to pick them up. I got there and they were on flip flop without any luggage but had the cash. I refused the cash and told them they needed to convert it to a certifield check. They had to get a hotel room and waited until the next day cause the bank was closed. Completed the sale at at AAA and they drove the car home. That was one of my craziest encounter with selling someone online.

Wow, that's nuts! A dealership i used to work for sold cars on the net also. We sold one to a guy in memphis. The owner talked the lot guy into driving it to memphis then catch a flight back. Well, the dumbassed lot guy forgot to take his coke out of his ciggarette pack and ended up spending a week in a memphis jail for possession. Lol ok, i know it's not a craigslist story, but i always get a chuckle out of it....lol

I called a guy about a boat on CL earlier today. Can be a disaster dealing with people on there but when it works out it's usually a great deal on whatever you're trying to buy.

Fishies_in_Philly 04-13-2012 08:38 PM

That is very true. Currently, i have my eye on a pair of 36" t5ho fixtures for $100. Of course when i get there, they will be t5NO......silly peoples....lol

kjnguy3nn 04-14-2012 05:04 AM
