Had a transaction recently for a truck - $7200 was the agreed upon price. Guy shows up to "take another look at it" and they says will you take this, as he hands me an envelope. I open it in front of him and it is full of cash. He says it is $7200. I say - yep, good enough for me.
I walk over to a bench to count the cash....while I'm counting I don't notice that he walks off to talk to his buddy near the truck. When I see this happened, well, I just knew I was screwed as I continued to count.
At the end of the count, it is $1000 short! Oh crap.....
He comes over, looks as my little piles of $1000 and says..."Crap - I'll be back..." He leaves the money with me while he goes and gets the other $1000.
Who know who screwed up - it it all worked out OK
