    So this person has been trying to sell a Gameboy Color on Craigslist now for almost a year and a half. I messaged them once before when they first posted it saying I'd take it off their hands and never got a reply. I didn't see it again for like a month and then they reposted it, only this time they went from asking for 10 (fair) to 20 bucks!

    Now its been like this for over a year. I'd check the video game section and see it and laugh. But recently, I'm pretty tired of it being there. So I explained to them what it was, since they didn't know if it had games on it(lol) and the time period it was from. I told them that not many people nowadays would be interested in, save for old school gamers or a collector (which wouldn't cause its missing the battery cover) and that I would buy it but not for 20 bucks. At my local used game store I can get one for 12 bucks and that I'd give them that and bring a game to test it. It's been four days now and nothing. So I just wanna share this with you guys and hopefully ya'll can get a nice chuckle out of it.

    Gameboy Color

    And its not like I was even an asshole about it. I was really nice and explained what it was to them. Ugh, people.

    That's people for you.
    Just leave them be and search for a better one.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    woa... over a year? wonder why they still bother and don't just throw it away... 20 bucks is money but 1 year without getting rid of it, it doesn't' worth that time dealing with answers to costumers...

    Oh yeah. Every time I emailed them.

    Yeah, well, they probably think someone will buy. And that someone would've been me, but not anymore. Haha
