Had to share this.
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, September 27, 2003 1:42 PM
I just couldn't help but share this little experiance I had today. A friend of mine from work who's divorce was final a couple days ago asked me to come to her house this morning a see if her bum left anything I might be interested in. (she caught him in a year long affair and basicly cleaned him out as far as his possesions go) I had never met the guy so I figured I might find some assorted tools for my garage toolbox or something. I went in the back room and about had heart failure![:0] The dude was a modeler! I picked up 8 kits, Tamiya all, a Swordfish, Skyray, ME262, Skyraider, to name a few. Also got a bucket full of assorted paints, sanding sticks, a nice exacto set, and about 50 sheets of bare metal foil, all for the low low price of........are you ready.........50 dollars!Big Smile [:D] Just goes to show you guys, be faithful or someone else my just clean your bench off for you.

Gives me the heebie jeebies to think of someone else rifling through my kits and supplies. I guess your good luck is his misfortune.

Felt a little bad until she told me how he had an apartment for this girl he was seeing and the excuses he would use to be away from her to go see his mistress. He is a reserve helicopter pilot in the Army and even used Sept. 11th as a reason to be away for three weeks, she later found out he was with her and not called for any action or training. That took any guilt I had away.

Sound kind of like the story about a kid who saw a car for sale for $10. He called the owner and went to look at it. The lady wound up selling him a brand new Mercedes SL-series for the ten spot. Asked why the price was so low, she said that her recently-divorced husband had called from Bermuda and had asked her to sell it and send him the money. So she did.

That was a good deal. The Swordfish alone is worth the $50!

Nice deal,
I'd keep one eye over your shoulder though for a bit. Domestic pissing contests never go well and the ones who get the worst of it are the guys that step in the middle of it. Usually unknowingly. Had a similar experience and not too long after had the guy calling me for his stuff back. What a soap opera....

I hope you found out whether or not he's a member of this website ! Although I don't condone his behavior, I try not to capitalize on another's misfortune. But that's just me.

He got what he deserved. All's fair in love, war, and jilted wives I couldn't imagine doing something like that to my wife, though. Some people just have no morals anymore.

I suppose if I were given an opportunity at a find like that I take advantadge of it.
Because if I didn't someone would or that stuff would end up in the trash.
Or even in this case "BURNED".

I showed this topic to my wife, and she informed me that her response would be to castrate me, then send me video of her dancing the Jitterbug around the flaming pyre of my kits while I was still in the hospital. She figures the heart attack would finish me off.
Nice of her to share with me, don't you think?

At my age, it wouldn't do any good to chase after another woman. I wouldn't know what to do if I cought her. Big Smile [:D] Not only that, I wouldn't have time to train her. Wink [;)] I am happy with what I have. No need to go looking somewhere else. She lets me do my model building and doesn't bother me when I am in my model room. She gives me at least 15 minutes notice, so I will have time to complete or reach a stopping point.

I think i'll keep what I have. She is a diamond in the world of stones.Smile [:)]Smile [:)]Smile [:)]
