Craigslist came through for me in the end. I was able to sell the Toby Keith tickets and I also found tickets to another concert I really wanted to go to (Coldplay, if you're curious). Has anyone else ever used Craigslist? It feels a little weird when you go meet the person. First of all, you have to be careful and meet in a public place and all of that. And it just feels kind of shady, handing over a wad of cash for whatever it is you're buying (or the other way around). It's just that both parties, the seller and the buyer, don't want to be the victim of a scam so both are probably extra suspicious (are these fake tickets? Is this counterfeit money?) I think most scams involve fake checks or requests for wiring money, so I wasn't too worried since I was dealing with cash. Luckily I don't think I look too intimidating and luckily both of my transactions were with nice young women. I had Charlie with me when I bought the Coldplay tickets so I looked extra safe. I guess we'll find out at the concert if my tickets are the real deal.
