Craigslist Gripes
« on: April 26, 2011, 07:58:57 PM »
Gripe #1 Don't show up to buy furniture without the exact agreed amount of money on hand. I am not a bank and I can't break your fifty, and no I won't take less than the agreed upon amount because you don't have the exact amount on hand. Go to the gas station across the street and get change, thank you.

Gripe #2 Does everybody on Craigslist think they are the next "American Pickers"? No I won't take $100 for the furniture I have listed for $300 that retails for $1200. I have already cut the price to make it affordable for people who normally would not be able to buy furniture of this quality. You are not going to make money re-flipping furniture I sell on Craigslist.

Gripe #3 the never ending questions, "Was this furniture yours or someone elses?" or "So where did you get this furniture?" Why? Do you want the furniture or not? I think it has something to do with Gripe #2.

Thanks for listening, that is all...

Not a gripe, so technically hijacking thread, but here goes...

I was to meet a fellow at 6:30 this eve...this was from a 5 pm phone call...that's how I have them contact me...I feel it's more sincere than an email through CL.

Anyway, 6 pm comes and phone's the guy saying he can't make it. Disappointing, BUT courteous is a close 2nd to actually selling the item.

Sorry for the hijack...just wanted to say they're not all bad.

Do you put a map in your Craigslist ad?
