Buy This Guy’s Deadbeat Housemate’s Copy of “Rock Band”

Packaging for the videogame “Rock Band”Brent Ashley knows that I’ve had my troubles with a deadbeat housemate (whose debt of thousands of dollars I forgave recently), so he knew I’d be amused at this classified ad that appeared in the Toronto edition of the classified ad website, Kijiji:

Selling my deadbeat roommate’s Rock Band

Price: Best offer
Street address: Yonge & Finch, Toronto View map
Location: Toronto
Date listed: 28-Dec-07

First of all, yes I know this falls in the really mean category and yes I know they’re supposed to really be hard to come by, but you’d be this pissed too. I can understand paying for plane ticket to see fam during Christmas, but dropping $300 on a video game while skipping out on his share of the rent during a really expensive time?!?!?! WTF?

Well payback’s a byatch. I will consider this as the December rent. Highest bidder gets a PS3 Rock Band Special Edition. Comes with drums, a guitar, and a mic apparently. I need this done by next week, for obvious reasons.
Yes it’s been opened and he played for two hours before having to leave for the airport. But Mr. Anal actually packed it away because he didn’t want anyone else playing it while he was gone. *Are you kidding me? At least it saves me the trouble.

Oh and if you’re reading this, consider this your last payment. To everyone else, have a happy holidays.

Alas, it’s for the PlayStation 3. If it were the XBox 360 version, I’d have bought it from him for the full retail price because:

  • I really want this game, and
  • I know this guy’s frustration.
