Last month, I posted my 81 300SD in the free section of the Maui Craigslist. So one dude calls and says he'll take it, and pick it up with a tow truck later that evening. Cool! I leave the title and keys in the car for him which is setting at my work. Done deal, so I thought.
It's now morning, and I'm pul;ling up to my work. The W126 is there, oh well, try again then. All of a sudden, this fat, sloppy white dude with a cowboy hat, barges into the office and huffs, "Who is the owner of the Mercedes outside?"
I say ,"I am."
"You need to come outside and talk to me!!", said the fat bastard.
I then walk out to the car to see what this dudes malfunction was, and he orders, "You need to go to the auto parts store and buy me a battery!!"
I say, " Fuck you, and who the fuck are you to tell me to do anything! You want the car or you don't, simple as that!"
Dude stammers and said, " I'm calling the cops on you, for shady business!"
I'm like, whatever! I tell him to give me back the key and title, which he refused, and then walked off. First instinct was to punch him in the back of the head, but I was after all at my work.
15 minutes later, 3 cop cars pull up to my work. The guy called 911 and was telling them it might be a stolen car, etc,etc.. although he had the title and key in his hand. Cops thought he was an absolute douchebag and they order him to give me back the paperwork and key.
For the next 4 days, he called my work, threatening to take me to small claims court, if I didn't "do what was right and give him the car", and harassing the office staff.
For now, I haven't heard anything else from him
