Or, should I be as pissed off as I am?
I have a home gym and my dumbbells are 5 to 50 and 80’s. The obvious hole in my collection is 60’s and 70’s. I check Craig’s list twice a day Monday thru Friday and usually once on the weekend. I’ve been doing so for about six months.
Yesterday morning I check Craig’s and someone posted an add for a pair of 50’s and a pair of 60’s for 33 dollars. His add says to call between 6 and 10PM. I email him and say I want them at 7:30am. I call at exactly 6pm and get no answer. I called back at 6:30 and this time leave a message.
He calls me back at 9:30 and explains that someone already got them. I said “Dang! how did someone beat me? They must have called Sunday night, right?” He said “No, the kid called this afternoon.” I replied “Your add said to call after 6 and I emailed you early in the morning.” His explanation was that he got home and went through his messages and went in the order of the calls.
I seriously would like to lay a beating on him.
