Since this gun sold (for TWENTY SEVEN HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNDRED BUCKAROONIES), and editing my post won't bump this up, I'm going to use this space to make fun of lovdasnow.
1. When people say "I don't mean to be rude" or "I don't mean to insult you" it's really an outright lie. You know you are being rude and/or insulting and you feel guilty about it, but rationalize it away by couching your lowball cheapskate offer with weasel words up front.
2. If you had any idea what you were trying to buy, you never would have offered such a pathetic amount. How about jogging down to the local Chevy dealer and tell the sales guy "I don't mean to be rude or insulting, but I think I could come up with $20k for that shiny black Z06 Corvette." I'm sure if you ask nicely and bat your eyelashes he just might go for it.
3. Lastly, if you are trying to lowball someone on a price, out of ignorance and/or greed, how about trying it out ON A GUN THAT ISN'T SOLD ALREADY!
lovdasnow - you're not welcome to buy anything I might post in the future. In fact I won't sell anything to you at any price. I am, however, debating whether or not to make fun of you in every post I make by putting you in my sigline. Watch the space below and find out!
