    Default OK.... Tell me Im not a sucker!

    So........ some of you know we bought a new car, my old car that I have owned since '98 a Pontiac Grand Prix supercharger was in rough shape but man it flew!!!! , but I didn't want a car payment. Car looks fantastic due to living in FL. and not having to deal with weather elements but........Driver's side window would not roll down ($350.00 to fix) and air not working (cylinder $900.00) other than that great shape, leather interior with no rips etc.....

    Posted it this afternoon for sale on Craigslist, got a call within 15 minutes, CASH ONLY, and the guy came and bought it. He knows a great mechanic and what he does is buy cheap car's for his church, has them fixed, (funded from his church) and gives them to needy church members. We ask a certain price, he of course tried to get us down. We actually went $50 below what our "fixed" price was.

    He left to go get another driver and I was so taken by his church story and it seemed so sincere and honest, that when he came to pick it up I gave him $50 bucks to donate to his church. Joe was totally against this, saying he already gave him a break by coming down the extra 50, but his cause was so sincere. This car has been paid off for years so not like Im loosing anything. Joe is not happy with me........ME??? I feel very good about it, and I have no regrets. What do you all think? Am I being a sucker???? It was my car in my name.

    No not a sucker, and like me you have a great big heart, and always want to beleive that people are good and honest. If you feel good about it, and it goes to a good cause then even better. Maybe you'll never know if he was telling the truth or to, but you can feel good that you potentially helped someone. Continue to be the good person you are and you can never go wrong.

    I totally agree with Monica, whether or not it was true, if it is then you did a wonderful deed and service to his church. Yep, you are a good egg.

    NOPE I don't believe you are a sucker!!! My hubby & I have had this discussion many times… it doesn't matter if this guy is telling the truth or not, what matters is that you gave from the heart & that's what God sees!!! Whatever happens after that is on that guys conscience NOT yours

    50 bucks is a small price to pay for feeling good. Nobody knows for sure where their money goes when they donate it. What's important for your soul is your intention in giving it.
