I figured it was a steaming large load of what the bull left behind but decided to play along for sh-ts and giggles.

We can set up a time for you to look at the book. Be aware, I am requiring cash for all purchases, no checks. And the price on this one is non-negotiable since it is a very rare item.

Immediate reply (note different email for reply, and ignoring totally the “Be aware, I am requiring cash for all purchases, no checks.”
