Craigslist Fails

I, like everyone else on rs, am constantly searching CL for anything from furniture to vehicles to the free section to jobs to real estate. At least once a day I come across a TERRIBLE ad; whether is to poor grammar, bad pictures, random job requirements, or and ad that is just plain hilarious.

I thought that maybe I would start a thread where we could all post our ridiculous finds in the same fashion as the "cute animal" thread, "where to find" thread, and "no need to start a new thread" thread.

Happy sharing

Creepy wardrobe in the corner.

Here is a tip: if you are taking a pic of something you are trying to sell....don't make it look like you are trying to take a picture of a weird dude on the bus without him knowing.

I recommend screenshotting the ad and then posting because CL ads eventually expire/get removed =)

Slightly OT but this may be of interest.

E-mails from an Asshole

A guy trolling people's Craigslist ads. Gave me some good laughs during my work day.

Tokina 11-16mm (Nikon) - $650

Tokina 11-16mm (Nikon) - $650
Hi there

I'm selling my Tokina 11-16mm. If you look at the lens, it looks totally brand new!

It's a great lens for those who like landscape or architectural photography!

The lens has 5 year warranty from Nikon Canada. It comes the box and the receipt and I added 2 filters of $55 value each.

I barely use the lens so it's time to sell it out. I jut realized that I don't really need that lens for the type of photography I do. I

Let me know if you are interested.

Thank you!
