I was just shown this at work, I know nothing about the bike or the person that posted the ad on gumtree but figured someone here may know who’s it is.
Synchronised posts. Nice one!
fuck, that bike ad has had 52000 views!!
god bless the interwebz.
Thats awesome. Nice work!
"“He gave me a $100 and so I spent the extra on a bottle of whisky.”
what a happy ending
The guy is just a top bloke isn’t he!
He has another bike, not as nice as the last one,
If it wasn’t for the “apparent police” station, I’d say that he is the thief trying to make some small $$. If some junkie offered me a stolen bike (again), I’d call the police immediately, then flog him!
This is what I thought at first.
-He steals a bike
-Uses an excellent excuse that cannot be traced back to him stealing it
-Makes a bit of cash for it, because selling a stolen bike would no doubt be hard
Seems dodgy to me
Step 4 - Go viral?
Seems like a lot of effort for $100, plus he’s left a pretty large trail…
What a bunch of shit. You could stake out a thief and call the cops and they probably wouldn’t respond but instead you do what you can to help and could get fined? Rubbish.
*(conspiracy theories aside)
The lesson here is…
Thieves love triple triangles.
I once paid $15 to get my own stolen wheel back. Did I do a crime!?
Yes. I have alerted the appropriate authorities.
brb, gotta turn myself in. see u guys in 4 years
Geez, talk about missing the spirit of the law
