If you need a new car, and are strapped for cash, why not just use your pet bird as a down payment? Reddit user Sloshua posted quite an interesting text message conversation. He had acquired a 1992 Nissan 300ZX from his father-in-law. When asked about the history of the 300, he said:
It’s a two-owner, garage kept, no door dings, 9/10 leather interior, etc. Since it is a somewhat desirable car that is in amazing shape, in order to gauge the interest in the car, I decided to put up a feeler ad Craigslist
In the ad, he was also up for trades. Well…someone offered him one. A truck and a parakeet. The truck in consideration was a 1959 Ford F100. Sloshua then replied:
Why was the guy getting rid of the bird? Well according to the not-so-loving owner, apparently the bird only seems to care for women. No matter how much he feeds the bird or cleans its cage, there’s no affection. Oh, and a $1500 bird cage. Now I see why the guy wants the bird to fly the coop.
