We've all had a bad experience with an internet scam, but Shelmar Pierre Roseman of Largo, Florida, wanted to be sure to avoid misunderstanding when he put his 2002 Oldsmobile Alero for sale on Facebook last week.
Roseman warned, "This will get you from A to B. Just dont try to make it to C," to remind potential suitors that this car may not be a long-time fix to their transportation needs. His hilarious and honest Facebook ad has the internet cackling with laughter.
No news on whether or not Shelmar's car has found a happy new owner.
While It was Shelmar's car that was for sale...
The caption on his ad was the real prize:
"PLEASEEEEEE READ CAREFULLY SO THERE'S NO MISUNDERSTANDING
2002 OLDSMOBILE ALERO LOCATED AT JOURNEE AUTOS
Nothing special or pretty about this car.
Rust on the side. I even zoomed in on the rust so you can see it. This car runs and drives. The air blows cold and it has a cd player. Thats it. Nothing more nothing less. Dont bring your a** down here saying it looks different in the pics or you didnt know it had that much rust. Im telling you right now. This b***h rusty. This shit is $900 dollars. You're getting 900 dollars worth of car. No I do not have any wiggle room. You can wiggle yo a** down to another dealership. Dont ask me about the check engine light or this light or that light. Its 900 dollars. Its gone be some lights on in this mothaf**ka. As is. Dont bring this s**t back for nothing. It has 200k plus miles. You damn right u gone find something wrong with it but as for now it cranks. Steers an drives. Blows cold a** air. An wont leave your pockets bare. This will get you from A to B. Just dont try to make it to C. An don't bring that b***h back to me. This car will last you at least ALL SPRING '17."
It gave a lot of folks a good laugh (Thanks, Shelmar):
Others saw a career as rapper or salesman in his future
Many more thought Shelmar served as a perfect example of how they could sell their own beaters:
