Winter Storm Nemo is barreling down on the Northeast, ready to bury Boston and New York in feet of snow. While most people are preparing for the horrors of a three day weekend by tweeting about it ad nauseam, others have a better idea.
Looking for a junkyard Ford Explorer in the range of $1,500? John Lindsay’s got an ‘85 Bronco you can take off his hands for $7,500. Manual transmission and the gears don’t work so great outside of the fifth. Airbags are a little messed in the makeup, too. “The front one” deployed in Lindsay’s last accident, and he hasn’t bothered to go and get it replaced.
$7,500, though, and he’s willing to negotiate.
Maybe it’s a microwave you want, and you need it to be white because that’s what’ll match the color of your kitchen. It’s only a matter of time before John Lindsay’s in your inbox, pushing a $30 LG microwave you and calling you a racist.
Misinterpreted or simply misinformed, John Lindsay is coming after every crack in your most recent Craigslist post. He’ll work you over slowly if he has to, even sound like a normal, everyday Craigslist client in need of a translator or a shovel.
But once he gets ahold of you, you’re in for quite the ride.
