*Sorry for the long story*
Saw this ad on one of the fb shopping pages.
A very cool dresser but ~almost an hour’s drive.
B U T~
the price—makes. it. w o r t h while?
You just know it’s gonna need work.
So I messaged her to ask about it.
And this is how it went.
How long would YOU have stuck with this?
All I did was click on the pic-icon from my phone to see a bigger picture of the dresser—and it changed her ad…???
Take notice of the silence~gaps in time just to arrange this whole thing…
(this was all while I was working on the 3rd looooong table)
When I STILL hadn’t heard anything around 6:30 I was reluctant to start out in her direction. What if I get to her small town and still haven’t heard from her?…. Is this a new “Craigslist killer” on the loose??
All of this “communication” was through fb message. Which I hate.
Now almost 8:30 (original appointment SET BY HER was for 6pm) Oh yeah! She gave me a phone number to text her on—so I called it.
Of course- got voicemail. I left a –frustrated– message.
DID YOU SEE THAT? 10:44 Can you come tomorrow?
Are you REALLY trying to sell something?
I stewed on it for a while. Looked at the picture a few more times—do I really want this? IS IT REALLY WORTH THIS MUCH TROUBLE? I toyed with setting another appointment and NEVER SHOWING UP to get even…
…and then -foolishly- text back I could come at 10am. . . F O O L.
She responded with it WOULD HAVE TO BE 9.
O. M. G.
I returned to ideas of NEVER SHOWING UP again.
…how generous. Did you notice how many times I had to ask for the address?
Just to finish~ when I got to the address at 9:45, there were 5 or 6 cars on the long driveway — but I had to keep knocking to get anyone to answer the door. Then, another 15 minutes to get her kids up to move cars just to get to the dresser in the garage.
Is this a joke?
Figuring I might be on my own to load it—I made her help me before I would pay. No ‘thank you‘s were exchanged—I sure wasn’t feeling very -kindly.
Here’s my before –treasure–.
Airing out ’cause -omg- it stinks. Can I report her to fb?
I’ve lost my mind~haven’t I?
-ugh, stay tuned
