Body of content:
In this robbery prank I hit up a driver for hire as Tyrone and Rakesh to ask about what he'd charge to be my getaway driver. Sadly, he was not too excited to oblige! When he realized he would be driving around a bunch of thieves, he immediately got freaked out and threatened to call the cops!
This is a rare instance where I prank called someone from Craigslist and they actually responded in a reasonable way! Do you think he was freaked out about picking up people after this? Should I call up more Craigslist driver ads? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
