I received thirty emails today between 12pm and 2pm in regards to an ad I put on Craigslist...
Which specifically stated not to email me.
I guess these thirty are special snowflakes that couldn't imagine I could possibly mean THEM when I said no emails!
I recently purchased a new dishwasher. Due to the fact I am lazy and didn't want to deal with a bunch of emails, I decided not to attempt to sell the old one but simply list it in the FREE section of Craigslist with its description and my address to come pick the fucker up.
I couldn't believe the questions these people asked. It was like they were buying the darn thing. Actual quotes...
"Does it have any scratches because I don't want anything with scratches."
"Can you please deliver it and install it? I am a single mother and could really use it."
"If I pick it up and it doesn't work, I am bringing it back to you. I don't need other people's junk"
and my favorite...
"Do you happen to know the energy rating?"
At 2:15, I pulled the ad. My son asked if he was willing to deal with the phone calls and emails, if he could sell it and keep the money. I agreed. Just make the darn thing go away.
He sold it for 50 dollars within an hour and they just picked it up.
I do believe I live in the most fucked up community in the world.
