The Creepy World of Craigslist: Hog Wild


Though this post under Craigslist’s “Items Wanted” category gave me a case of the WTFs on first glimpse, after further inspection, I decided the dude might not actually be all that nuts.

“After loosing my job I need a motorcycle to ride ... I need to have at leat 600cc. I have some cash, but I would like to trade my gorgeous rings for someone who would appreciat them. Please call Shawn at ... ”

“This beautiful 1 3/4 ct. tw. Diamond engagement ring features a 3/4 ct. princess cut center Diamond with 1 ct. tw. princess cut side Diamonds set in classic 14K white gold.

Retails at $7195.00 Gorgeous Ring”

OK, so let’s break down why this dude’s life totally sucks. First, he lost his job. Crappy. Second, he lost his girl (re: the diamond engagement ring he’s now trying to hawk.) Burn. Third, he can’t spell for shit and has a propensity to stretch the truth (is it worth $8,000 or $7,195?)

Somebody get this guy a hog. With the hand he’s been dealt, he belongs on the open road.
