I must have a Stupid sign

There's a couple sites I've detected in town and this real friendly guy comes round, to ask what I'm finding as he's a fellow detectorist. The first time he told me about a detector he bought from Kellyco on clearance, a great buy at 99.00. I don't even remember the name of it.

Yesterday he must have forgotten he told me he paid 99.00 because he wanted to sell it to me for 300. Then he wanted to trade it for my 704 Minelab.
My husband said I should have messed with him and asked how much he'd need to boot.

I don't like to offend people by saying outright no so I said, i'll think about it.

Kind of an insult to my intelligence but I still appreciate him as a fellow hobbyist.

Greetings and good luck from West Virginia

Why do you appreciate him....he's an idiot, & a pest.

Metal detecting has nothing to do with it; if he was trying to sell you chocolate covered grasshoppers, or crack, would you put up with it?
Next time say, "Sprechen sie Deutsch" (do you speak German?)-if he does not answer you in German, ignore him and keep hunting-everytime he says something,
repeat the phrase, and just hunt.
If he answers in German, say good for you--ignore him and hunt.
(but don't turn your back on him)
Its a good idea to hunt with a partner-most of us do. :twodetecting:

WV girls are not dumb. Heck one was even smart enough to marry me. LOL You just need to tell him that you are not interested in his used machine as you prefer to purchase new. That way you don't have to hurt his feelings. Of course this old hillbilly boy would tell him where he could put his Machine.
