King size brown leather recliner – $650

King size brown leather recliner, awsome condition. Some minor defects, handel to recline is a lil chewed up. No tears or holes. Will saddel wax it befor it goes to give it an extra shine.

$650 or Best offer

Nothing wrong with that, right? I mean, yeah, there’s some spelling issues, but nothing too terrible. Not really worth snarking about. But then you see the pictures:

Her: “Honey, can you get off the chair for a second? I want to take a picture of it to put on Craigslist.”

Him: “Wait ’til I finish my smoke.”

Her: “But America’s Next Top Nanny is on in five minutes, and I want to do this now.”

Him: “Too bad. I’m comfortable.”

Her: “Actually, wait, that’s it! I can take a picture of you lounging in the chair to show just how comfortable it is! Pose for me, honey. Look comfortable.”

Him: *grunts and throws his leg on the arm of the chair*

Her: “Perfect! That says that you’re so comfortable you’ve even forgotten that you still have your shoes on. I like it.”

Him: *takes a drag from his cigarette*

Her: *click* *click* “Great. That way I don’t need to say in the description that it reeks of smoke; they’ll know.”

    The ad doesn’t mention whether the hairy troll is included with the couch.

    I’m sure it’s a matter of perspective, but I wouldn’t call that a “minor defect.”

    Why is it I get the distinct impression that the man who won’t drag himself off the chair before taking a picture of it is not, in fact, going to “saddel wax” it before it is sold?

      Feel bad for Kate, she’s obviously not shopped for leather recliners.
      La-Z-Boy asks $1200-1500 for their entry level recliners.

      And, if you shop the “Liquidation shows” and pay less, they often come with a sweaty, tattooed defect, too . . .

    The undoubtedly sweaty behemoth looks disturbingly similar to a guy I worked with on Okinawa back in ’92. If this ad is from the Pacific Northwest, you really don’t want this chair at any price. Because Eww.

    This brings back memories that I don’t want to discuss. Except for the smoking. The person this reminds me of did not smoke. Sometimes getting older is a good thing.
