I think people do take me for a Fool sometimes, here is an example of something like that, I need some money desperately so I planned to sell My bike, put it on selling websites and got funny offers which have left me surprised, I somehow dont trust myself anymore the more I think about myself

The Ad. for the bike says

Got a few offers ¬†and one came from Italy and here is what the person had to say, he offered to do a private sale via email ūüôā , I sent him a email saying it is available.. ¬†The response came

Hello
for the bike the offer price is ‚ā¨ 900.
the offer reason is because I live in Italy, and the bike should be sent in my city, so the shipping costs around 500 ‚ā¨.
I want to know, the bike has engine problems? Abuto has problems in
I Await your kind reply. Yours sincerely.
Antonio

I was pretty happy for that Offer ūüôā so Replied back ..

Hi

I have no idea how to ship it to italy. There were no problems with the engine , I been driving it around .. but this year its just been sitting in the garage .. hence selling it

I have tons of spare parts also along with it , almost everything .

Thanks
Bik

 

The reply came ..

Hello.
So you accept my offer of ‚ā¨ 900?
For shipment I inform me and I’ll let you know.
In the event that I agree to buy your bike, after seeing her in Italy and above all it checked by the mechanic, if you have problems we should feel.
It is a sign of assurance that I ask you, why
motorcycle goes first checked and then paid. I think even you would agree ..

This made me a bit curious, I wrote back

Hello

so you want me to send the motorcycle to Italy.. You will get it checked by a garage. and then pay me ..
What happens if you dont like the bike .. Who sends it BACK.. and What happens if you do not pay me after getting the bike in italy ..

Thanks

 

And the funniest was the reply.. have a read of this .. first the MATHS does not fit at all and I am a bit bamboozled

Hello.
Just what you say!
So I pay 50% deposit then shipping in Italy I checked by a mechanic. If there are problems I pay less according to the work that will have to carry the bike.
For example: the bike costs 900 ‚ā¨ you pay at the beginning ‚ā¨ 450 in Italy to the port there will be work to do than controlling costs 200/300 ‚ā¨, you pay the difference at the end ie 150/200 ‚ā¨.
I hope you understand.

 

I don’t understand the Maths as I said¬†, I get 450 .. I pay 450 to port, then 200/300 for something .. so that makes 750.. he has offered 900 Euros.. which means I get 150 euros for the BIKE and that is also up in air .. once the bike lands in Italy I may not get anything ūüôā

So basically I am selling the bike for 150 and doing all the exporting etc .. ūüôā BARGAINnnnnnnnnnnn

Or am I reading something Wrong here …

 

I have been away so first of all let me apologise to all the writers-bloggers-readers .. I have not been able to visit your blogs and not replied to your comments ..

Carrying on from the previous posts on thoughts here are a few , I have suddenly realised that English is such a funny Language.. I have my examples on that , you are walking down the road when a friend of yours¬†Pointing at a person, says “Have you seen that man” .. Now to me that is funny¬†what do they expect me to say NO, I¬†AM blind I can’t see ..

I am a sucker for a bargain, anything would do, Now here is a situation where I think I made a bargain deal.

I was standing at a bus stop waiting for a bus, a few others were also doing the same thing as I Was, Oh yes¬†waiting for the Bus that’s¬†what we do at a bus stop.. ¬†when a friendly MADMAN came on the other side of the road, He was big ,looked strong too, Had that mean look to him .. not washed .. well seeing me the only indian standing I guess his eyes lit up , because other than me rest all looked similar to him, I was the only odd one out in the whole group¬†.. Standing at the¬†bus stop waiting at the bus stop .. ¬†he looked at me, our eyes met , I looked away when I heard those words which I was dreading not to hear

OYE¬†YOU.. oye¬†you..youuuu ”¬† Now you can expect this to happen in a night or in a dark place but when it happens in the middle of the afternoon in broad daylight you kind of have that Gulp in your throat .. you are basically looking here and there hoping against hope that it’s not you who he is meaning to¬†call ..¬†¬† I ignored him

He crossed the road and¬†came over , Looking menacingly¬†at me says “Oye give me a pound or you going to get your head banged up and I am going to shove this knife somewhere”¬†

I am not joking here the moment he sayd ONE POUND.. My eyes lit up .. The gulp in the throat went away .. I took a deep breadth .. what a sense of  RELIEFFFFFFFF 

PHEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW 

I was like¬† phewwwwwwwwwwwww¬†…¬† that was close , he just wants a pound…¬† Sounds reasonable ….. ¬†BARGAINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.. What a DEALLLL¬† sir ji … .. HOT ONE

I have been stabbed earlier and I know it hurts and worst it puts a¬†dampener on the evening , it would be so very inconvenient, Having to go to a hospital, sp much time wasted there , when¬†to have a stab wound and that hole in the Suit I am wearing , there goes a¬†¬£200/- suit wasted, what with a hole and blood stains .. not just that even the shirt I was wearing would be stained .. My quick calculative¬†mind did some calculation .. as you can see How fast I was to point that ¬£200/- suit .. Oh yes people I bought one ūüôā¬†¬† (got a few weddings coming on this summer , so a good investment )

Anyway back to the scenario, So this person I was talking of, here was a gentleman who offered me a fair bargain.. rather than putting me to any  inconvenience he wanted a POUND, What an idealist, where can you find such bargains anymore .. Not even the pound shop can offer such juicy deals.

To make the deal more juicier¬†¬†and worth-while¬†I also thought of the current¬†¬†financial crisis .. yeah I know to bypass¬†¬†a horrendous ordeal this indeed was a bargain … I hope you all are nodding with me in agreement here ..

Thats¬†why I said I am a sucker for a good bargain ūüôā¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
