What is up with people on craigslist? Some people are STUPID.
3 days ago I came across a post for $1500 worth of Lemax Spookytown stuff for $200....WOW!! And it was the 2nd post, it had been offered 3 weeks earlier too, with no takers.
I freaked, I emailed....and being broke, got my wife and mom involved.....they were going to get it for gifts...xmas, bday, whatever...as I told them, a cheap way of making me VERY happy for months...
So the lady emails me back saying that she had it and she was having a moving sale today, and if I wanted she would send the address. I knew from the post that she lived over 50 miles away from me. But I said sure, but I want this stuff...we'll come get it, etc.
Never heard another word. But this morning, we found a post advertising the moving sale, withthe address posted, AND still advertising the Spookytown.
So we drove all the way there, to find it gone, and one of the dumbest rednecks I have ever met minding the sale. All he would ever grunt was"Uh, I think its sold...."
Can you call her and make sure?"
$#^#^ IDIOTS!!! I could have had a friggin great deal...
Here's the thing with CL people...when you respond to an ad..leave a phone number-I did!!
And when you are advertising....when someone emails you...send them your phone number!!! Or at least CALL THEM!!!
