Dude Wants To Fight Rockford Guy Because He Sucks At Online Shopping
It's no secret that Facebook Marketplace can be a little confusing to navigate, but one man's misunderstanding led to quite a hilarious (and slightly terrifying) situation.
Let's set the scene: A guy in Rockford, let's call him Jim, was trying to sell an Xbox on Facebook Marketplace. He posted a photo of the console with a few accessories, including a controller and a cord. The post clearly states that the Xbox is for sale, including the power cord.
Enter our unsuspecting hero, let's call him Bob. Bob is in the market for an Xbox cord and stumbles upon Jim's post. He sees the photo of the cord and assumes he can buy just that item, without actually reading the post. Classic mistake.
Bob sends Jim a message, asking if he can buy just the cord. He kindly explains that he's selling everything together, but Bob persists. He starts pressuring Jim over selling just the cord, even though it's clearly stated that the whole console is for sale.
Bob tells JIm "no one bouta buy" his Xbox. Jim lets Bob know others have inquired about the Xbox with the power cord. That should have been the end of it, right? Wrong.

Bob's tactic to get this power cord takes a bizarre turn. Bob suggests he and Jim have a boxing match for the cord. You have to believe Jim is thinking, "what the heck is the matter with this guy?"
Once again, Jim stresses he is not selling JUST the cord, he isn't separating the package deal.
"Box me for it."

Yes, you read that right. Bob was so adamant about buying just the cord that he apparently felt the need to physically confront Jim. Over an Xbox cord.
Moral of the story? Always read what exactly is for sale and never assume you can pick and choose based on what is in the photo. And maybe, just maybe, don't threaten to fight someone over a piece of gaming equipment.
