What the bleep bleepity bleep!!

Ok... tell me if I'm totally naive or what...

I decided for Ryan's upcoming birthday to surprise him with guitar lessons for both of us. He's always wanted to learn the guitar and I thought it'd be fun to take lessons together. So I found this guy on Craigslist that "advertised" "lessons" in our area. Here is his ad:


My name is Michael, and I am offering guitar, and drum lessons. I have experience playing both for over 5 years. For drum lessons you need to have the drum set. I can't use my drumset in my townhouse.

I am sick of seeing people charge 20 dollars for lessons so I will charge $10. That will not change. I am currently giving lessons now, and have a couple of spots open. We can work out time slots for what works with you. Great with kids.

For guitar-
I can teach you chords, scales, songs, any many styles of music. I will most likely not have you read sheet music, unless you really want to learn that way.

For drums-
You will learn proper technique for playing. You will learn beats, fills, Reading sheet music, and much more.

I have music theory, and piano experience. I'm currently in a band, and have played all over the state, and have done a national tour.

Please if your child wants lessons, and they are young make sure they really want lessons. I don't want to waste your time, or mine.

Please contact by email for questions.

Please email at

So I emailed him this:


I am looking for someone to give guitar lessons to my husband and I. I'm wanting to surprise him for his birthday- he's always wanted to learn to play the guitar and I thought it'd be a surprise for me to learn with him. This is just a last minute idea I've had... neither of us have a guitar. Do you do semi-private lessons (two people) and if so, how much would it be? Do you have guitars we can use until we find out if this is something we want to further pursue, or should we buy guitars beforehand? When do you have times available? We are available Monday, Thursday or Friday evenings or the weekends.



And I got back this....

I don't give guitar lessons. Only c%ck s%cking lessons. If you want me to give them to you that will be alright. You need a d$ck for me suck. Just want to let you know that i like d$ck in my butt.
Seriously... WHAT THE HELLL!!!! My jaw literally DROPPED when I read his email. I was like... uh... did I miss something?!?


  1. ehhh. what the? i didn't know that guitar was code for um, other things. lol!

  2. r u kidding?? Did you report it to criagslist? That's horrible! What about the "great with kids" disclaimer? WOW

  3. What a bargain!
    I have a friend who's son has tried to sell an item on CL & he has had 3 bogus sales (bad checks, etc) sent his way. 1 sale went as far as to send a ck via fedex bounced from 3 locations made on a closed acct. Selling or buying, I'd just be cautious.

  4. I'd be reporting him, what a jerk!

  5. OH MY GOSH!!!! I'm sitting here in between laughing and jaw dropping awe! What in the world? Are you kidding me??

  6. I am literally speechless. I would be reporting his ass. What a creep.

  7. I don't mean to laugh, but I seriously couldn't help it. That's hilarious and extremely creepy! Are you going to write back?

  8. ummmmm what!?!?
    I have heard of a local band named Astral Feedback. I've met the girl in the band, but none of the guys. As far as I knew, I thought they were pretty cool people... GUESS NOT!

  9. Horrible! Why are there such a$$holes out there. Report him.

  10. what in the EFF?

    do you think maybe someone got ahold of his email and sent it back without him knowing? that would be my hope... it just seems so WEIRD...


  11. this has to be a mistake, right? all i can say is whoa!!

  12. so did you sign up? ha ha=) Aren't you glad he threw in that disclaimer before you showed up for your first "lesson"!?

  13. Oh MY GOD! I'm speechless. Creepo

  14. OK, I'm peeing myself laughing - WTH?????? My guess is that a room mate was using his computer or something, why would you go to the trouble of posting the ad if you didn't mean it?

  15. Oh and by the way, the reason I was thinking it could be someone else on his computer is that the girls and I do that at work to each other if one of us hasn't locked their computer LOL We send weird messages and it looks like they sent them HAHA

  16. My jaw is still on the floor! Unbelievable!! did you report him to craigslist?

  17. WTF?!?!?! HAHAHAHHA My jaw dropped too! What great luck! hahha

  18. I would seriously call the police department. You don't want some parent to send their little boy their for guitar lessons - CREEP!

  19. THIS is nuts! Ask Ashley to ask around to the band member she knows and see if she can find more out. This is really funny, but sorry at the same time! Wish you could've gotten the guitar lessons.

  20. I think Jason knows the guys in that band so I asked him if that's something they would normally do... he said it doesn't sound like it, his roommates probably got a hold of his computer or something. I'd still steer clear just to be safe. Weirdos. Yikes!

  21. um wow. that must be why peyton's guitar teacher is always chatty with me. ha. kidding. he is really good at guitar lessons if you are interested...
