    Gutted, missed a bargain!

    Went to a local carboot sale on Sunday, noticed a PS2 (boxed), steering wheel, pedals and 10+ games for £20.
    Legged it to the cashpoint and ran back just as a young lad walked past with a massive grin on his face carrying the PS2 and extras.
    Didnt really need it but thought I could make a few bob on Ebay

    What a gutter!!

    Why didn't you say to the person on the store you was going to get some money and would be back in 5 mins?

    why did you go boot sale, looking for bargains with any cash???

    because they weren't many people around and the cashpoint was only a few yards away:x
    my missus said ''never mind, you didnt want another one''-they really dont understand do they?

    Because I dont really like boot sales, I feel embarrased looking at other peoples tat. Normally end up buying a pork roll:whistling:

    lol you conned by an old lady

    Maybe when the lad got it home, the steering wheel fell apart and the game cases actually contained a load of vintage Eldorado episodes, if it makes you feel any better about missing out

    I love car booties! I got an unlocked LG Viewty for £40 last week, with USB & Charger. Well sorted - it's a great phone!

    just think to yourself it must have been faulty - nothing is that much of a bargain

    Should always tke money to a bootsale, and if it was that good a deal (which it did indeed seem like it was) then you should have sent your GF to the cash point whilst you was packing the PS2 into a bag, saves time and means you would have had the deal.
    I bought a dreamcast and a box full of games about a month ago for £8, the guy said I could leave it there and collect at the end, but am always dubious about that sort of thing, so paid my money and took it to the car right away
