YSAK 74: A man learns facts are irrelevant when arguing with his wife

Joe found this fabulous post in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and it turned his nose into a Coca-Cola fountain:


WILL TRADE ENCYCLOPEDIAS FOR BOTTLE OF TYLENOL
Price: Swap / Trade

OK, I WILL TRADE YOU A FULL SET OF ENCYCLOPEDIAS THAT I BOUGHT FOR COLLEGE FOR A BOTTLE OF TYLENOL.. ( WHY TYLENOL ?.. KEEP READING )
. I JUST GOT MARRIED AND MY NEW WIFE APPARENTLY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING. SHE WON'T SHUT UP AND I GET A LOT OF MIGRAINES FROM LISTENING TO HER GOING ON AND ON AND ON AND ON.

SO PLEASE , BRING SOME BOXES/BAGS I DON'T CARE AND SOME TYLENOL AND COME GET THEM, THEY ARE APPARENTLY NO LONGER GOING TO BE NEEDED.

THANKS.

Apparently this man has finally learned the lesson that you can't win an argument with your wife. Even when you win, you lose.

I think the guy's aiming a little low, though. If he really wanted to cash in, he'd ask to trade the books for Imitrex.

Why don't you include links to or screenshots of the ads? :)

Good question!

First, no one has sent me a screenshot. So, submitters: make sure you send me the ad # as well as the ad copy.

Secondly, I'm lazy and don't have expertise in screenshot capture. I'm certain I could figure it out within ten minutes, but it's an extra step of complication.

And fifth, search engines don't read screenshots.

Having said allll that, if it's the kind of ad that can really only be appreciated by seeing the screenshot, I wouldn't be above posting it.

Thanks for the note!
