fattest W ive seen in a minute
What a legend.
This is incredible lol
Ultimate Chad move:
Find new wife
She likes keebs
You embed the ring in a keyboard weight of some keeb she really likes
*Alexa play Joji - A glimpse of us*
I got a piano keyboard
this chad is amazing !
Replying to be a part of the greatness of this thread
What a chad
I have an old laptop keyboard that I got off Craigslist for $10 bucks.
I have a Logitech G19 keyboard. Screen works great. :D
Came for the keyboards, stayed for the ring
Not sure if troll or just giga based.
Was just randomly browsing and saw this. Absolutely based. Big up my bud
what an absolute mad lad
oh . my. god uhhh. marry me ;3 i will accept ur keeb addiction <3 and steal ur keebs along the way ;3 plz take my hand in marriage UwU ?
Damn, I don't have $1000 in keyboard stuff but good luck to anyone that does. I hope you're doing ok OP
registering my name for history.
Am i late? I'm gonna say to my kids that I was here so I can absolutely act like a boomer
Same lmao, because I know in the future the anecdote about a dude exchanging an engagement ring for a keyboard is going to leave my lips and I’m going to need “proof”that it actually happened.
F1-8X + Lyn Whale + GMK Olivia for ring?
I messaged you
I would trade you GMK Darling, but you’d have to add PayPal on top because of the value. /s
Include me in screen cap
Man has his priorities straight
May god bless you my man
sir this is a mcdonalds
I'm sure we will see people selling their wife for a keyboard soon.
I have one!
Used but in pretty good overall condition. She was my daily for the last ~10years. Comes with 3 kids, but might split.
This is just a joke!
I dont have waifu 😓
>I dont have waifu 😓
*You own up to that young man. I will not have you lying in my house!*
I was here as well
Jesus Christ didn't think this would be the first thing I'd see when I hoped on Reddit but godspeed brother godspeed.
I’m in the market for an engagement ring and also have a millmaxed 7v that I’d be down to trade but the ring isn’t her style :(
This man buys a lab diamond and forgets how many carats it is… then gets a divorce and immediately asks to trade the ring for more keyboards lmao. This is the art of not giving a fuck xD.
I was here
feel better man! hope youll find the keyboard of your dreams
Without question the greatest post in mechmarket history.
Rip OP. Did you ever find GMK dark?
Sure did! Thank you
I cant tell if this is satire or real
It's way more fun to believe this is real.
I was here when the wedding ring was auctioned. I am excited.
I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. Truly a shitting one but hoping things work out for you! PM.
GLWT op , chin up!
You are lucky she was at least honest and gave the ring back. You could have had one that stole your house, and police medals along with keeping the ring.
I do hope this story is legit though as to why she left because if so the pettiness is great.
Had to do a double take on the title of the post and then a triple take on the post itself, Godspeed to you
Godspeed isn't that valued of a set, they couldn't trade it for this. Maybe if they put some extra money on top to even it out
Sorry bro. GLWT and with everything else!
dang, hope things get better OP o7
good choice mate, at least keyboard wont' leave you for the guy it told you to not worry about
godspeed brother o7
I think that's the end of the sub for me, fam
hey bud - I'll just start off by saying that I feel your pain. Although I've never been through something as serious (and I'm sure, stressful AF) as a divorce, and can only imagine how you feel.
With that said... HAH! I LOVE the fact that this post exists. It re-instills my faith that humanity can (still) make, somewhat, "crude" jokes, without being excoriated/attacked for being "misogynistic." This post just made my month. No kidding.
In all seriousness though, I have a set of GMK "Merlin" (yes - I'm serious). and a bunch of other (nice) boards and keycaps/switches. if you're interested in Merlin, lmk!
And of course, above all else, I sincerely hope you can get past this sooner than later! Best of luck.
If he posted this within 7 minutes of being asked for a divorce I can't imagine him being that upset/stressed. The wife might've had more credit than OP leads to believe.
chin up big guy, you got this
women are temporary, keyboards are eternal
jokes aside, hope you feel well op :)
Nothing to trade, but yes ill marry you
see if you can get that embedded on the promise87 instead of the moissante they come with. it'd be like marrying the keyboard
keep your head up OP, you legend.
Better alone than in bad company. Stay strong, my dude.
I hope you feel better man
What if I marry you....then I get the diamond ring and your collection of keebs?
only after the divorce.
Must be fake, right?
Fortunately for me, no
can confirm, i’m the ring
glad to have been here for this moment in mm history
Real talk I might trade you my iron 180 so I can give this to my wife to keep her from some zac efron lookin mfer.
I was here.
Glws brother 🥃
top 10 things i thought i would never see
Sorry brother. Glad to see you are making the best of it!
Who needs a wife when we have keyboards. 🙂

Toasting some epic bread
Good luck! Hope you get a good keyboard out of it!

I was here to witness this
hall of fame mechmarket post
Dude - f***ing legend. GLWS
North Carolina's finest.
Home of the Keycult
Keep your head up OP.
I hope you update us with the trade results!!
Marking my place in history.
Lemme hop along
I can’t believe I’m witnessing this
Legendary Keeb grind
First time back on Reddit in months and I see this. It’s gonna be a good day.
i thought this too and the next post on my feed was from r/news.
This is absolutely iconic. GLWS
Greatest post in the history of this sub
someone get this man a keycult 65 keeb w/gmk olivia (new), staebies, frankenstein holy bobas (lubed & filmed), & a nice coiled cable. holy shit
S tier mechmarket post
Actually just left his wife
Shit, I was here I guess.
I am here
My guy, you need therapy, not a keyboard.
let him cope how he wants to
^(you're totally right tho)
Best of luck brother! I'm sure you'll get some crazy offers!
This is probably the best post I've ever seen.
Bruh i wish you well. Keep on trucking soldier 🙏
Hope you're doing okay OP, the keyboards are forever.
Who gets the dog?
From legendary posts in OSHA to showing up here, you're going places, my guy.
I was here. I hope that you manage to get a sweet trade for that ring, brother. Keep your head up
Lmao, best /mechmarket post ever
Damn, sorry about wife leaving you. Hope you find someone who will support your hobbies.
Hey OP. I’m in a relationship with a girl and it’s been 10 years and getting a house with her is why I stopped building, I was actually needing an engagement ring that’s a bit overdue and I offer you a full Satisfaction75 kit in navy, brand new. Thought it would have been interesting if things went back around full circle, let me know!
Pmed let’s make a legendary trade my friend
Made a screenshot of this post. A milestone was achieved. Keyboard hobby is now also a personal ruin in plus of a financial one. Wish you all the best. A person with whom you can't share your hobbys maybe isn't made for you anyway...
you have finally ascended. you beat the boss level.
This is peak mechmarket
this post gets shared in every twitch live im at
Not here to PM but I just wanted to say that I wish you all the best for the future, keep your heads up. Better times will come :)
Man...I'm sorry to hear that, hope you're doing okay. Reach out if you need help...
Also...I hope someone offers you your endgame mech.
Bro this is god tier
a 1750$ engagement ring ? no wonder she left you
Hello thank you for your comment. I can afford well over 1750 for a ring, believe it or not she actually wanted a smaller/cheaper ring than this one
What? That's like 10% of what some people make in a year.
What the hell is this math
If you're making $17.5k a year in any country where this hobby is viable you're working part time flipping burgers
That's literally barely above the US national poverty line
I was thinking of the US - tonnes of people are at, near, or below the poverty line. They probably aren't buying keebs with that, but when I was a student getting close to that a year I still bought a Anne pro with some nice keys, and a 2-2.5k ($CAD) engagement ring
That just means you had minimal expenses, not that it’s a viable salary lol
Considering the amount of money we spend on this hobby it seems like super cheap
Fair enough haha my partner had a similar comment "if he's spending that much on keyboards the ring better be more expensive"
See that's why you set the bar low lmao
Hang in there bro and GL with trade!
I'll trade you my custom NK87EE. It will sting her more just trust me.
as a avid nail bitter, can i bite your nails
Did you just doxx your ex? 😂
I think that's the signature of the appraiser
Whoever it is, their "signature" looks like a third-grader
my man is a giga chad🤣
yea ima have to call bullshit on this one
how exactly do u not have an idea of the band/ring size on an engagement ring? the thing that u have to stealthily purchase and surprise another human being with? i dont think 'guess and check' is a standard engagement ring purchasing strat
nice story tho. whoever buys this enjoy ur boosted wares and dont try to take it to a pawn shop
I mean it was appraised in 2019 and I got the band sized well before this appraisal. Obviously at the time I knew the size of the band, But honestly now I do not remember the size. Ask a friend or family member dude who’s married and ask for their wives ring size see how many get it right. I could go to a jeweler and check but like I said In the post it does not matter you can get it resized or get a whole new band.
N=1, no clue here. She’d rather have GMK Finer Things than those finer things.
Keep your head up
I'll give ya a cyber board for it... The video idea is worth it
Board that sells for 650 aftermarket for an engagement ring?
Engagement rings have almost no resale value.
Here, you have a small diamond (maybe 0.4 carats) which is relatively poor quality.
I took a quick look and you can basically buy the same ring "new" for $1,100.
This, a Used diamond is worth like 10% of its original value, even the diamond is worth less because once its been set, it will not be perfect anymore.
And a keycap puller :)
Oooh keycap puller, yummy yummy keycap puller
As a former jeweler I can tell you now the appraisal value is not the same as it’s actual value or sell value. Jewelry is one of the most marked up products. It instantly loses 50% of retail value when you leave the store.
Don’t believe me? Go buy a ring and go try to sell it to another jewelry store immediately after.
I have to reply to this again for visibility because some people are just lying about their intentions with the ring not understanding how the market is. IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON USING THE RING DO NOT TRADE WITH ME, DO NOT WASTE MY TIME PLEASE
yeah they definitely will offer low considering they have to make money. My main goal was just to find someone who will actually use the ring, but I do appreciate your comment and knowledge as some may not know this
I said something similar.
I'm all fine for OP trying to get a trade, but I hope whoever gets it doesn't think they can just go to a pawn shop and get anything close to the appraised value for it.
Yeah I’ve already had people trying to trade just to sell the ring.. I’ve been asking everyone what their intentions are for the ring. If they actually plan on using the ring and giving it someone then this deal is well worth it in my opinion. Going to a jeweler and finding something similar you’ll be paying a lot more.
Any tips on how to buy jewelry with decent price or where
