I thought about this post today. I was out trying to get some stores back on schedule and some guy tries to sell me a coin collection. He was obviously on drugs because he couldn't hardly walk without stumbling.
It was a very nice collection of very old coins and paper all preserved in those plastic things for coins etc...
Anyway he said $500 right away and I said no, he said $200 and I said $40, he packed them up and muttered to himself.
I called the cops and they took a report. The girl in the store gave the cops his name and the cop said this guys father had reported his collection stolen.
I knew it was stolen and also knew that who ever owned it would have gladly given me my $40 back.
Wait til you have something stolen and let's see how you feel about those "good deals".
Remembering all my departed friends.
