Strange FB Marketplace Encounters – Deer Jumps 30 Feet Into Parked Truck Moments Before Buyer Shows Up
Murphy’s Law, which states that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, often seems to manifest in random strings of bad luck that link multiple untimely events, leaving us in frustrating situations. It’s as if the universe enjoys playing tricks on us, orchestrating these unfortunate coincidences as they pop up at the worst time, leading to some unfortunate circumstances.
In this tale, we encounter a textbook example of Murphy’s Law in the context of a Facebook Marketplace transaction and as we know, dealing with people on marketplace is a venture that can already come with its fair share of challenges. Jay Vaughan, a Facebook user, decided to list his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado for sale on the platform. Operating within the world of Facebook Marketplace can be challenging, but the story we’re about to delve into is perhaps one of the most outrageous marketplace tales ever.
The truck’s owner had a potential buyer who displayed what he called “1000% interest” in the vehicle, with one condition – the truck’s condition must match the images posted. After assuring the buyer that the truck was exactly as advertised, the eager buyer set off to the seller’s location with cash in hand, ready to seal the deal.
As the buyer arrived at the end of the driveway in a white Chevrolet Tahoe, fate decided to intervene, turning the tide against this once pristine truck. Caught on a security camera, just as the buyer exited his vehicle, a deer appeared seemingly out of nowhere, leaping over the driveway and covering about 30 feet before crashing directly into the truck’s side, leaving a significant dent.
The transaction proceeded, and the buyer acquired the truck, albeit with a new and unexpected addition—a sizeable dent. To compensate for this unfortunate twist of fate, the seller had to reduce the price by $1000.
