You Snooze, You Pay
The Straight-Up Trade
there were reports about a barely used Blackberry, an Xbox 360, Taylor Swift tickets and a Nintendo Wii being offered up for trade in exchange for some Coachella tickets. All of those were pretty lame (especially the Taylor Swift tickets– no offense, Tay-Tay), but this year you'll have to up your game and offer up tickets to an equally drug-fueled summer festival in exchange for those Coachella passes. And then, of course, there's the greatest non-financial trade offer of all time:
The I'll-Do-Just-About-Anything Trade
"I am a board-certified primary care MD in the Manhattan Beach and West LA area, and an avid music fan. I will trade Medical Care Services for Coachella weekend 1 and/or weekend 2 GA passes and car camping passes. Lemme know what you need, and lets see if we can strike up a deal. As you know, medical care is UNGODLY expensive, so so this could be HUGELY in your favor, financially."Umm, unless you spent your heart medicine money on Coachella passes, this deal is only financially in favor of Dr. Manhattan; plus, what kind of doctor can't afford tickets on their own? That's right, the shady kind. Another Craigslist post offered up a "good kidney".
"Give me 2 coachella passes I give you 1 kidney. Plain and Simple."At current black market rates, your kidney should be worth passes for BOTH weekends.
You're Kidding Me, Right?
When it comes to hard to find tickets, you've got scalpers, and then you've got this guy asking $90,000 for one Coachella ticket.
I'm really not even sure what to make of this. It might have been the Craigslist equivalent of a drunk text.
