BTW, I had my own craigslist stupidity moment the other day. My friends and I had been talking about craigslist experiences and the general stupidity we've encountered. Well, during the middle of the 4th
ing quarter of the Super Bowl, this guy calls me up on my google voice number tied to my phone so I picked it up. He wanted to know about some building/construction supplies/material that I had left over from a project that I had a craigslist ad up for. Yes I paused the game but I have people over and I'm in a bit of a catch 22.
I'm thinking to myself, "yeah a potential sale is a sale, but this is the mother
ing fourth quarter of an amazing Super Bowl. This guy doesn't sound gay
yes I know it's a stereotype to think that gays don't watch team sports, and that all hetero guys are into football...and that you can tell the sexual orientation of someone by the way they sound on the phone...but I had a few drinks in me so that's what I was thinking
, so why the
is he calling me right now?!?"
So we agree on a price and I try to quickly get him off the phone after promising to shortly send him a text message with when and where we can meet for the deal, not at my address thankfully. So after I send him the text, I accidentally send a follow up to him that was the following commentary that I meant to send a group of friends:
"WTF, some guy just called me about a Craigslist ad I got up. A DUDE who was looking for construction material. Didn't sound gay at all. Yet during the 4th quarter of the super bowl he's calling me about this. ???"
Anyway, met up with the guy the next day no problem. He didn't mention the text and I just pretended it never happened.
