If Only I Had 22 Inch Rims

posted by Momo Fali on March 31, 2008

This weekend while looking for a used table to refinish, I developed a new web obsession. Craigslist.

If you haven’t been there, don’t go. Some of the deals are unbelievably good. I never found a table, but I did spend the better part of yesterday wondering where I would put the antique dry sink that someone was selling for $25.00. I could probably squeeze it in next to the “NEW” elliptical trainer for which the seller was requesting $10.00. Technically, aren’t all elliptical trainers new, since all they do in most homes is hold clothing?

But, Craigslist isn’t all about buying and selling. There’s a bartering section too. That’s where I found this…

I HAVE TRYING TO GET RID OF MY WIFE. SHE IS DRIVING ME NUTS. WILL SELL FOR THE RIGHT PRICE BUT WANTING A CAR, TRUCK, MOTORCYCLE, 4 WHEELER, PS3 WITH GAMES, 22 INCH RIMS, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU GOT. I HAVE PICS IF INTERESTED. SEND PICS OF TRADE

If she does windows, I’m going to strike up a deal.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s a riot! I love craigslist. There are 2 other sites that are similiar. I thought there names were Freecycle and curbside, but when I typed them in, they weren’t there. Try a search…they’re worth it!! I’m an Ebay junkie too……

  • Stacey @Real World Mom


    LOL! I think most women could use a wife!

  • Stella


    I love craigslist! I find ebay easier to sell on but craigslist is GREAT!
    You know, if we pool our energies and crap we could get ourselves a pretty good deal going. She can do your windows and my bathrooms!

  • BusyDad


    No… no she doesn’t. But she’s great at sweeping up dog hair.
    (before I get konked in the head because I know my wife reads your blog… JUST KIDDING!)

    I could so use a wife… she doesn’t even have to wash windows.

  • Ashley


    Ha! YOu should send them a msg and see what they say! Did you for real find that or are you making it up? lol

    And haha at BDs comment too. He deserves a bonk on the head. lol.

  • Joeprah


    I think she will nag your windows into submission, be warned!

    Too funny! Great catch.

  • Heather


    I remember my craigslist phase. It was blessedly short. I spent way too much time reading the insults people were posting to each other. Now I am just simply afraid I will be lured to someone’s house to buy something from them, and will end up buried in their basement.

    i LOVE Craigs list!!! LOVE IT!!!! 🙂

    This post, of course, was hilarious!

    Ashley,

    I can assure you, that if I were to make up a listing like that, I wouldn’t write, “I have trying to get rid of my wife”. No doubt, the poor woman just wants someone who can spell.

  • HRH


    If you find 2 for the price of one, I will chip in–I need a wife too.

  • Lisa


    I could see if I have those 22 inch rims–we could swap every other week (I just really want a maid, em, wife, to scrub the bathrooms)–I’ll check the garage 😉

  • Angie


    LOL!!! I discovered Craigslist today too. How funny. Only I am trying to sell some stamps in order to get new. And I took your advice. I renamed my blog “My Boat” Thanks so much for the suggestion. BTW, I think you are incredibly talented too. You have a way with words, and that’s quite a skill. I’m an avid reader, but sorta picky too, and your style of writing really makes me smile. THANK YOU.

  • Selma


    That is hilarious. I’d love to know if he manages to trade her in successfully!

  • Heather


    We love Craigslist. Have sold and bought many items. One time, we tried to give something away for free. People wanted pictures. People wanted specifications. People wanted this and that. We reposted. It’s in the driveway. If you want it, come and get it. That’s it. No more info! They drove us crazy.

    The only time I have ever actually been on craigslist, I typed it in wrong and hit a porn site (FYI, make sure you have the ‘s” in craigslist!); I was at work. It was an eye opener, I tell you!
