HELP ME GET A CAR – $1000 | Craigslist: “im not the police or anything and if you are please don’t email me.”

Hi i need some help i need a car. I just graduated from high school and im starting college and i need transportation back and forth to school. I used to have a car but my parents took it away once they kicked me out. They kicked me out becuase my baby sister got drunk and called me at 5 in the morning to come pick her up. when i got there she had like 30 of her friends with her and i told her i could not take all of them home. The car was too small and i had to get up for work in a 4 hours. She got mad and would not get in the car. I called my parents to talk since into her but they were sleeping. So after waiting 45 minutes i just left.. But later after i left my sister was arrested. My parents blamed me. I really dont understand what i did wrong. It was her fault if anything. But anyway i was kicked out and they took my car. I had some money i had been saving up but i had to use that for me to have a place to stay. But now i need me a car. I tried car dealerships but they are not willing to take a chance on me cuz i just turned 18 i have no credit or a down payment. Me having a job is just not enough. I have beeen trying craigslist for sometime but it was no luck. Most people will email me saying they think what im doing is stupid and that is fine. If you know a different way then please tell me. Cause trust me i would rather get a car in a way where im not doing sexual favors but my back is up against the wall right now. And i dont know you or your situation so i dont want you to be offended by this at all. I dont know how much you need the money from selling the car but i was hoping maybe u can help me with the car. If its just sitting in ur drive way and you wana get rid of it then help me. I dont expect to get it for free of course. I was hoping that maybe you would accept oral sex or to let me make some small payments(and just cuz im offering oral sex dont think im some dirty slut whose been with a million guys. Cuz i have not not and i been tested and i have no STDs). I know its far fetched but i need some help desperately. So if you can please help me. I mean if you want to just give me the car that would be AMAZING but nothing comes free in this world. So im willing to try and pay. The payments wont be much but if you give me time i swear i will pay it all. Let me know if you can help me if not then i understand thank you and have a blessed day. Oh yeah by the way i really dont have the 1000 dollars i just put that up to attract more people and check my email like 3 times and hour so please respond as much as u can

Oh and let me tell u now im not the police or anything and if u are then please dont email me. I dont want any trouble and im not trying to get anyone in trouble. I just need help. If you feel like what im offering is not good enough for what u have then dont bother to email me. But if u do then let me know

Why Geeks and Nerds Are Worth It…
Date: 2005-04-03, 9:30PM PDT

In the wide world of dating, there are many options. Do you go for the flashy guy with the smooth smile, or the dude in the corner typing away on his laptop? The following are reasons why I think my fellow females should pay more attention to the quiet geeks and nerds, and less attention to the flashy boys.

1.) While geeks and nerds may be awkward, they’re well-meaning 9 out of 10 times. That smooth dude with the sly grin and the spider hands? Wonder what HIS intentions are… plus, I’ve never had a geek guy not call me when he said he would. Score major points THERE.

2.) They’re useful. In this tech-savvy world, it’s great to have a b/f who can make your laptop, desktop, and just about anything else that plugs into a wall behave itself.

3.) They’re more romantic than they’re given credit for. Ok true, their idea of romance might be to make up a spiffy web-page with all the reasons why they love you, with links to pics of you and sonnets and such… but hey. It lasts longer than flowers, plus you can show your friends.

4.) Due to their neglected status, there are plenty to choose from. You like ‘em tall and slender? There are plenty of geeks/nerds who are. You like ‘em smaller with more meat on their bones? Got that too.

5.) They’ve got brains. Come on now, how can intelligence be a bad thing?

6.) Most are quite good at remembering dates. Like birthdates and such, especially if they know it’ll make you happy. Due again to their neglected status, they’re more attentive than guys who “have more options”. Plus, with all that down time without a steady girlfriend, they’ll likely have mental lists of all the things they’d love to do once they GOT a girlfriend.

7.) Sex. Yep. Sex. I’m not really familiar with this myself, but I’ve friends who’ve been intimate with geek guys and it’s raves all around. They say a virgin wrote the Kama Sutra… all that time thinking about sex, imagining sex, dreaming about sex, (they are male after all) coupled with a desire to make you happy? Use your imagination.

8.) They’re relatively low-maintenance. Most can be fueled on pizza, Twinkies and Mt Dew. No complicated dinners needed here, so if you’re not the best cook, eh. Can you order a pizza?

9.) Most frequent bars as often as slugs frequent salt mines. You won’t have to worry much about your geek guy getting his “groove” on with club hotties because, frankly, he’ll be too busy rooting around under his computer wondering where that spare cable went. You won’t have to worry about him flirting with other women because, 9 out of 10 times, he’ll zip right by them in a perfect b-line towards the nearest electronics store. I’ve seen this happen.
Me: “Eww. Victoria Secret’s Models… They’re so skinny. How is that feminine? You can see her ribs!”
Geek Guy: “ooooooo…”
Me: “Hey!” *notices he is staring lustfully towards the computer store*
Geek Guy: “What?”
Me: “Never mind…”

10.) Although he may not want to go to every outing with you, you can arrange swaps, as in, you’ll go to his Gamer Con dressed as an elf princess if he’ll take you to the ballet. Plus, if he doesn’t want to go someplace with you, you won’t have to worry much about what he’s up to. You’ll probably come home to find him asleep on his keyboard in a sea of Mt. Dew cans with code blinking from the screen. It’s ok. He’s used to this. Just toss a blanket over him and turn out the light.

11.) His friends aren’t jerks. I can’t stress this enough. You’ll more likely get “Omg! A GIRL!! Can I see?!” than “Hey hot stuff back that ass up here and let me get some grub on…” They’re awkward geeks too and will, 9 times out of 10, treat you with the utmost respect and, more than likely, a note of awe. A cute girl picked one of their clan to date? It could happen to them! Hope! Drag some of your single girlfriends over, open up a pack of Mt. Dew, crack open the DnD set and get working. Nothing impresses geek guys more than a girl who can hack-n-slash (well ok maybe if she can code… a geek can dream).

12.) They’re rarely if ever possessive. They trust you, so you can be yourself around them. You like to walk around the house in a ratty t-shirt for comfort? He won’t care. He does too! They won’t get pissy if you don’t wear make-up or don’t want to bother primping your hair. If you gain a few pounds, they won’t try their best to make you feel like crap.

13.) They’re usually very well educated. Physics majors and the like. See #5. You won’t have to listen to him blathering on about his car (ok maybe a little), he’ll have loads of other interesting things to talk about. Politics, world events, how much the chicken burgers down at the local place rock, so long as you douse them in hot sauce…

14.) You’ll almost never have to hear, “Yaw dawg whazzap!!” plop out of their mouths. Unless it’s in jest. They spell properly, use correct punctuation, and are able to tell the difference between the toilet and the floor. They almost never get “wasted”, so you won’t have to worry about coming home to find him and his friends passed out on the floor amidst a pile of beer bottles. Mt. Dew cans, perhaps…

15.) And the final reason why geeks and nerds make great boyfriends: They actually give a damn about you. Not how you look (though that’s a plus), not how skinny you are, not how much make-up you primp yourself up with, but they like you for you. That kind of thing lasts longer than “DaMN baby you got a fine ass!!!” Believe me.
