Had (what used to be) A Good Friend Screw Me -
About 4-5 years ago, (at a different Job) I ate lunch with the same guys everyday, we were pretty close.
I had a set of 5 Goodyear Wrangler SRA tires (275/17) with low mileage I had taken off my Jeep, when I went with different mags/Tires. I had them for sale at $600 for the set. ($120/per mag w/tire.) An excellent deal. My friend wanted to "borrow one," to see if it would fit his Girlfriend's Jeep. ( Not a Wrangler.) He came to my house and picked it up, the same time I cut him a Killer deal on my old Riding mower. ($250) The new rims/tires I had just put on it were $200.) They were too big, like I told him they would be.
After repeated requests to get the Mag/tire back (all he had to do was bring it in to work.) He left that job. I stopped by his place a few times on the way home from work and could never catch him there. Left repeated phone messages/texts.
Turns out he had changed his #. 🤔
I finally ran in to him (small town) where I work about a mo. Ago. 1st thing I said when I saw him, "Dude, tell me you still have my Mag/Tire?" Conversation from there.
I communicated with him at his new # a few times, finally flat out telling him to bring my mag/tire to my house and drop it off so I could sell the set. (Like I wanted to, 4-5 years ago.)
Finally dropped it off yesterday, and took a picture of it, inside my garage to "prove," he returned it. 🤔
I communicated w/him via text just now. "I know it is waste of time for me to say this, but I have to. It was too much to expect you to return my Mag/tire in the same condition you got it from me 4-5 years ago. (Looking like new.) Not sun bleached/UV damaged with the Mag filthy because it's been riding in the back of your truck for 4-5 years."
Pissed me off.
(I'd never do that to a friend.)
*I had to let him know I was PO'd.
Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁
