That's pretty funny. Thanks for sharing. Reminds me I need to keep closer tabs on CL.

It'd be even funnier if he were asking like $250 for it. At lease, as is, it's a comedically veiled sale of an old frame.

Was he offering the $50 to take it off his hands? I laughed at the gift suggestion idea!

Now, that's salesmanship. My favorite is the misspelling of 'breaks'...classic.
