No real point to this thread, just a rant, you might find it humorous, might not …maybe you can relate if you’ve sold anything
Why can’t people pick up a phone and call when they want something? It’s pathetic I think, and is something I’ve really started to notice over the past couple of weeks. I’m selling a bunch of my stuff because I’m moving so I have it listed on a website, and in all my ads I say to call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx, and people ALWAYS email.
First email comes, I reply, answer their questions and end it by telling them if they have any more questions or want to look at the item to call me, do they? Nope, they insist on playing email tag.
And what’s with people asking a billion questions about $10 and $20 items? I post multiple pictures of my items and still get 100 questions about a fucking chair. Example, I sold this leather chair for 25 bucks, swival, recliner, rocker, big overstuffed thing, pretty good deal I’d say, considering they’re like $1000 new.
After being reassured that it worked this couple comes out to look at it, I open the door and say “so you’re here to buy my chair eh?” “Oh, were just here to LOOK at it first.” Alrighty then, you drove 20 mins to look at a chair that had 4 pictures posted of it that is worth 10x what I’m asking and you just want to look at it, good stuff.
Then of course you get the losers who want you to deliver $10 items for free or want to haggle for $5 bucks. And of course my favorite is the pricks who set up times for big ticket items, like cars, and don’t bother to show up, I’ve sold 3 in the past year, and 3/4s of never show. And hey, about the loser who said he was going to the bank to get some cash and would be right back?
I’ve also given some stuff away for free and holy fuck are people ignorant, I post something up for free and an hour later I got 100 emails saying “give it to me,” no please or thank you or nothing, and then when I do it give it away and tell them it’s gone some of them have the audacity to say stupid shit like “I was first to respond, it should’ve been mine” and “thanks for nothing”.
