Craigslist Games

So I got a guy who called right away asking to buy my mini fridge, and now he's playing games with me. First he made a big fuss about whether it works or not (why would I sell a broken fridge?) and then asked me if I could bring the fridge to HIM. I told him I would do that, since I was going up to the area on Saturday anyway. Saturday morning rolls around, I call him asking him for his address and what time would be a good time to meet, and I don't get a call back until Sunday night??? Apparently he went to NYC for the weekend?? This might have been some good info to tell me earlier... And he still wants to meet to buy it. I'm pretty peeved. I know he doesn't know me, but some courtesy would be nice!

Ugh, I hate it when they fool around like that.

Everyone seems to think that because it's the internet the people on the other end aren't real, and that their time isn't valuable.

Sometimes I would like to reach through the screen and bitch slap some sense into them.

People are retarded. Enough said. Better luck with your potential buyer.

Craigslist can be frustrating at times--I hope you find another buyer who's a little more courteous!
