Found on "Best of Craigslist"

Since I own a hot tub and have become aware of how fragile they can be (never let them sit empty, pray you don't have an extended power outage in winter, etc.) this caught my eye. I would have linked directly to it, but "Best of Craigslist" can sometimes get pretty raw.

Free Hot Tub

Date: 2008-10-15, 8:57AM AKDT

Do you need a year round way to water your lawn, deck, yard, garage? Have you ever wondered what a 425 gallon colander looks like? Ever really wanted a motorized dog bath? Today is your lucky day. I have a free hot tub. Yes it is complete and it is drained. I drained part of it and it drained itself the rest of the way. Where does it leak??? Find that and you have found the leprechaun with the pot of gold. This unit is perfect for the individual who knows no limit to frustration. The type of person who likes a challenge even when there is no chance of winning. This will build the kind of character in you the armed forces dream of. You will find yourself exhibiting behavior that you never thought possible, but ITS FREE!!!! You will need strong backs to load and a trailer. I will be able to offer short bouts of sympathy and witty banter while you prepare to begin your journey.

If this interests you, and it should because ITS FREE, you will need to call and schedule to come by and pick it up. Please remember, I am not a business as it is hard to make a living giving things away. Please call and let me know when you will be there as I have other things to do. I will not guarantee anything except you have your work cut out for you. I will not deliver it, save it, paint it, or take photos of it for you until it is on your trailer....again...ITS FREE. Please call me if you want it. [DELETED]

Coleman 411 – 5 Person tub
Has Cover
Pumps, heater, etc did work
Air injector pump has been disconnected
The rest is a foam filled crap shoot

Hee hee hee hee! I love it! I'd go hang out to watch just for the witty banter. This guy sounds like someone after my own heart. I wonder if he'd be willing to trade for a $3,000.00 laser engraver that works about like his hot tub does?

Thanks for the link and the recommendation, Miz D!

That hot tub is a wonderful relaxation tool. Yes, it should be kept in tip-top condition for all to enjoy.

I really enjoyed this... LOL these are exactly the kind of deals Rob and I look for LOL.... I can see us scratching our heads wondering where all the water is coming from and if anyone could figure it out and fix it would be my apartment man my home repair business man husband Rob. LOL No chance that this guy is in Kentucky eh? LOL I would be on my way and hitching up a UHAUL in a heartbeat. We are dreaming of putting one on the deck someday... and we keep saying we will maybe buy used... but I see visions of waterfalls pouring yonder the yard. Where we have no grass. So I would have mud. Lots of it sounds like. LOL Happy Thanksgiving Mo.

Hilarious. Could be describing our hot tub except ours is dismantled in the barn and the rats have been peeing on it for the last 26 years.

Rachel said...

Haha!! What an ad! Surely someone will take the challenge and pick it up!!

Wanted to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
