Hilarious. This one gave me some ideas about my neighbor situation:

I had a nice hedge on my property line, but my neighbor said it was a ratty eyesore and killed it. I would like a bus? a train car? huge peice of rusted heavy equiptment?? This is not a joke If you have something huge and ugly you need to be rid of perhaps we can help eachother out! I would prefer something tall and ominous but will consider any old peice of ****. Wreckage from a airplane would also fit the bill. Also, if part of it squeekes in the wind or is highly reflective in the sun that would be a plus

Thanks for posting that link! LOVE IT!
Alrighty then!!! I like the way you think.

Maybe the rusted out, highly reflective yet squeaky airplane wreckage will help me with my neighbor. If you find a couple, let me know!

Oh, Craigslist. It used to be so much fun, but now you can apparently ad the word 'vintage', 'antique' or 'one of a kind' to just about everything. We have a lot of people in my area trying to sell Ashley furniture and thinking they can get current retail for it.... Or how about the vintage table and chairs, only rusted in a few spots for $300?? Or maybe that stylish teal and pink southwestern patterned couch with only a few cat scratches (i.e. missing half of one of the armrests) for $800?? It's only a few years old!! Hell, they're throwing in the 'matching' throwpillows for $10 a piece! What a deal!!

You can even adopt a dog on there, they paid $1200 for this lovely Pomi-poo puppy at a petstore, and you can have it for the low low 'adoption' fee of $600!!

I also love people who say in their ad that they got an item for free, but are now selling it for a couple hundred bucks. Really? Sheesh. And the people who browse the free ads and then repost the stuff for sale a few days later.

craigslist irritates me sometimes, but we did find a Cal King bed on there for $100. That was awesome.
