So he asks to buy my car. We agree on a price... and then the idiocy begins:
First, he can't get the money because the insurance company gave him a check and he doesn't have a bank account. He tries to get it cashed at a bank but they won't do it unless he opens an account. So I think in the end he had to take it to a check cashing place and pay a ridiculous fee to get his money.
Next: he gets the car, we sign the papers and I think everything is fine... until he calls me up and says that he can't afford to pay to register the vehicle and pay sales tax on it. He wants me to print him a fake receipt saying I sold him the car for $100 instead of $4000 so that he doesn't have to pay tax. I told him fuck it, I'll just help him eat the cost of tax, it's not that big a deal anyways.
The next day I get a call again. He can't drive the car because he doesn't even have a valid drivers license. He can't afford to get a license because he has outstanding warrants for unpaid tickets. Now he can't afford to pay for a license to drive the car.
Today, I get a call again. He says that he needs to get the money back for the car because he just can't drive and can't even afford gas money. He wants me to buy the car back (umm, go fuck yourself, thank you very much) and I told him no, just try to sell it yourself. He says he doesn't even have internet access because he can't afford it and can't afford to take out a classified ad anywhere either... So in the end I offered to help list it on free classifieds for him and just have people call him to deal with it, just to try to be nice.
Seriously... what the fuck is wrong with people? How can you be so stupid to spend literally every penny you have to buy a car and not even leave enough money for 1) Gas, 2) Title and plates, 3) a fucking drivers license, and 4) Internet? The only reason he even has food and shelter is because his parents took him back. He's my age at 27 and has a daughter, but spent every penny he had buying a car he can't remotely afford to have and now he's gonna take a big hit trying to sell it again. Fucking morons, goddamnit....
