    A Guy Was Going To Give Me Romeo 1s For Free And Then...: - image.jpg

    I was wearing my Romeo 1s yesterday at the office. Probably the first time they have seen the sun in months. One of my coworkers walks up and says "hey I have a set of those" of course I kinda didn't but kinda did believe him.

    Talked to him a bit and realized he really didn't like them or wear them. And asked if he wanted to get rid of them. Instantly he says "sure I will bring them tomorrow". I didn't sleep last night thinking about it.

    This morning I strolled in the office at 6:45 and there they were on my desk. Just left there in the soft bag.

    No scratches, factory lenses, no cracks, good rubber, great condition X-metal/ black iridium romeo 1s

    I found him in the office and asked what he wanted for them. His reply "No worries I don't wear them anymore"

    Long story short I brought $500 to work this morning and he ended up giving them to me. Out of pure guilt I gave him $250 and told him that he can't take them back now and I showed him how much they were worth on EBay(ridiculous). ;-) anyways I got some new Romeos!

    Real good. He still didn't really want the money. I told him I wouldn't sell them to make a dime at his expense. I just was happy to find another pair.
