Re: Holy Craigslist!


its even worse here in Colorado... I use craigslist alot to advertise my services and have noticed a HUGE amount of "handyman for hire" ad's. Everyone claims they can do just about everything to helping you wrap christmas presents. Its kind of sad compared to how things were this summer. I have placed over 9 ads in the last 2 weeks and have had 3 responses. 1 of which I got the bid for the job (small drywall job).

hopefully things get better... but hey, its a great time to buy used tools on craigslist! I got a brand new dewalt chop saw for 65 dollars the other day... and a nice tile saw for 100.

Great idea, I need a back-up table saw.

You'll have to drive a bit to get here, but the grounds of the Los Angeles Public Library in downtown LA is a target rich environment if you're looking for women who like to, shall we say, relieve themselves in public.
Bring your pick-up truck though, she'll probably have a shopping cart that she'll want to bring with her.

Re: Holy Craigslist!


One of the problems in our area and so much of the southwest i'm sure is the huge number of unlicensed workers and illegals that will work for nothing and take jobs away from those who are legitimate contractors. Craigslist has ads every day from these people. But also one of my favorite things about craigslist is the "Best of Craigslist" section....always good for a laugh. Such as this one:

FOUND - Briefcase w/ Odd Items
Large silver briefcase (metal). No locks. Odd items inside include a 14 inch length of plastic tube about one and a half inches in diameter, a solid rod of plastic about 20 inches long and a little under one and a half inches in diameter. Several tubes of KY jelly (don't ask me, I just found it). Here's the really odd thing: there were five Gerbils in a plastic container with breather holes in it. I put them in a mouse cage with some shredded wood chips, water, and food. Respond to this add so I can return your stuff. If no respone in a week, I'll give the Gerbils to the animal shelter and turn the rest of the stuff over to the Sheriff Dept. Thanks.

I hope he kept those rectum-seeking gerbils well caged. I wouldn't want to bend over near them!
