Lime performer! luck or kettle karma?
« on: May 30, 2019, 11:51:02 AM »
3 weeks ago someone posted a crate and barrel lime performer on market place for $125. I replied within the 1st hr posted. 3 hrs after that he replied and said someone is coming to look at it... I said let me know if they don't show. An hr later he mesgs saying he doesn't think the guy is coming and what was my offer? I said I would pay asking and can come pickup now. He then said okay the guy should be there in a few minutes.?? I said okay and was completely confused.
He mesgs me 20min later saying the guy took it and he got him to pay $175.
Now I feel like shit... I didn't get the grill and worst he used my eagerness to gouge another kettler. I am bummed for a week.
I know, pretty dumb but it stuck with me for some reason.
Then I am scrolling through instgram and find a newer weberitis victim. He has a Kmart Red, I just scrapped a Kmart 18 for parts and turned the bowl into a planter.
I reach out and send him the perfect Kmart clip on handle I have in the parts bin.
I am feeling better about my Weber world. Then my sister says she might be ready for a kettle. I send her home with a green platinum 22... Within a week I find this one!!

$25 bucks $30 more in gas and a couple hrs later
Comes with 2 boxes of lighting cubes
1.5 bags of coal
Weber Chimney starter
And a Weber cover
Full propane bottle
Whoo

I am not a believer of doing something to get something, but doing something to feel better about bad karma resulting to something good! I am all in! Small subtle difference but good. Enough for me

Thanks
That $50 carrier and $7 nets have been awesome to me. I have had WAY too much stuff on there. Plus ratchet straps and grills don't work for me. Lord help my wife if I ever find a decently cheap trailer.

My vote is for karma.  Having shipped a few kettles to you I could tell good things were coming your way.  You're  a pleasure to agent for. You’re patient and always grateful.  Good things come to good people.

This from the guy that sent me back money cause he thought I overpaid.!!

I am still looking for the right situation to pay that one forward.

Contributers on here are amazing, I am sorry I stayed a lurker for so long. [emoji16] [emoji1]
