500 for a couple K?

Recommended Posts

Had a feller call me yesterday wanting to pay me 500.00 cash to get him into a spot where he could find a couple ounces of nuggets...

I asked if he was kidding and he got mad at me, called me a greedy bastard and hung up :nutty:

I was very polite and offered to help him by referring him to educational material and clubs to join before he hung up, but he simply wanted gold.

I would think it funny I guess if I wasn't getting several calls like this a month now :grr01:

Why you know that golds just laying all over the place and he thought he could get it out of your way.

In these days where greed and selfishness know no bounds people think money can buy anything.

Just imagine how mad he would have gotten if you took his money and they didn't find anything.

What a jerk.

Bill- That is just another example of our school system dumbing down the requirements to graduate from high school. It probably seemed reasonable enough to him. Math wasn't his strong subject. Dave
