I had to laugh at what this guy wants for this mower

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/cs...696846854.html

$3500 for a belt drive 48" Gravely WB w/ side bagger. Granted is has a Kawi on it, but it sure doesn't look like it has only 400 hrs on it. I feel bad for whoever buys the person that buys that mower.

Ah, yes. Another craigslist toolbag who is asking too much for his item. I'm going to offer him some majic beans as trade since I'm getting all the craigslist 'tards offering me junk for my truck.

Some people on Craigslist are real Idiots.

I have never bought a new mower or a new truck. Every single one of them came off Craigslist. When I choose to upgrade, I usually sell the old one on Craigslist. Over the past couple of years people have gotten just silly on the asking price for stuff. When I sell something on Craigslist I shop around for similar items and see what they are going for. Like everyone I want the most for my stuff but I price it in a manner that I won't have to deal with ten idiots a day. Tools are the worst. Most of the time I can buy a tool new for what they want for some on there.

Ya, but when I go fishing I'm not wasting other peoples time. That's if I caught the drift of your comment right.

Fair enough and that's true, but it gets tiring sifting through all the BS ads.

It goes the other way, too. My Chevy is on craigslist and I was offered a lap top computer and a mini fridge for it by one person. WTF? I just delete and move on, so my time is minimal. I have three leads right now that seem like they may be good deals, but I've had to sort through 30 kids playing on moms computer for these three honest replies.
