    Default Slight OT, but sadly funny

    I was grazing Craigslist today and found this ad for a tractor. I sure am glad that Wisconsin has good schools .....

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++
    MM 5 starpuller



    all set up 16-9 coops weight bars bult moter puuls 5500 and up ok pant not great. selling becuse want to do a biger tractor runs an drives great. 5000 firm would tack less with out the tayers and weeles. call 715 829 -****


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++


    The only change I made was to * the phone number. I counted 10 misspellings and several grammatical errors. Now, I don't normally begrudge a person poor English skills, but come on! If you can't spell "paint" or "pulls" sheeesh!

    This is not a sign of poor grammar.
    It's a dead give away of a scam artist.

    LE Brown, I think it's a real ad for a real MM tractor. It has a local phone number. I just think it's either a person that was too hurried to double check what was written or that can't spell very well.

    tanked up and ready to type... lets see if I can Translate... Nope... I need to drink some more...

    Maybe it should read.... "The tractor is field ready, all set up to go, tires are 16-9, purchased from a co-op, has a front weight bar, rebuilt motor, tractor can pull 5500 lbs, maybe more. The paint job is "ok" just not the greatest. I am selling the tractor because I want to get a bigger tractor that runs and drives better. $5000 firm but would take less without the tax and wheels."

    I worked with someone who was like this... (and I'm not much better )
