Craigslist Fun

Do you ever read Craigslist ads just to see what dumb things people say? I guess I have too much time on my hands and found this entry recently.

Free Crap Ski Boots to the person who stole my Crap Skis

If you really want the crap skis you stole out of the back of my truck last week that bad, you might as well have the crap boots that go with them. I was about ready to give them away anyway, it might as well be you as anyone else. By the way, these are cross country (AKA Nordic) skis, that's why they're so skinny. If you've never tried it before, it's a great winter workout. I could give you a couple quick lessons and you'd be on your way.

I hope you wear a men's 10.5, or maybe you can trade them for a size that fits.

Just to be clear about which stolen crap skis we're talking about, these were a pair of well worn Fischer Nordic Cruising skis, I forget how long, around 205cm, maybe 210, 5 or 6 years old. They were about the cheapest waxless cross country skis you could get at the time, and these crap Fischer Touring boots that go with them are of similar low quality, and pretty well stretched out.

I would appreciate it if we could trade poles though, the ones you stole were really nice Swix carbon with cork grips, way too nice for those crap skis. I'll trade you back the crap poles that go with those skis if you still have them. This is not a deal breaker though, poles or not, you can have the boots.

By the way, in an attempt to go faster, I sanded down the fish scales (kick zone) about 15% or so, so if you're just starting out, you might not have enough grip. Maybe try a little kick wax if they slip too much for you.

Give me a call, my first name is Chris, my last name is on the skis in permanent marker, I'm in the book.
Can't you just feel the sarcasm....loved it.

Great stuff. Wish my mind worked that way. Speaking of Craigslist. There's a gal near me here who was having some fun on Craigslist. She was advertising on it. She came up missing the other day. They found her body in OKC. Her husband said they were swingers and that she did a little prostitution on the side. She made dates on Craigslist. Police have a person of interest in mind but can't find him.

I wish my mind worked like that too Bill, I envy others' cleverness. CL can be scarey, I have seen those ads, you wonder 'what are they thinking?'

Awesome. I sincerely hope he gets a response from the ass hat who stole his stuff. Have a good one, and I like the new look of your blog.
