I don't know how many of you have tried to sell stuff on craigslist before. For those who haven't it can be a real PITA dealing with some absolute dumbasses. So I feel for this guy

That's great. The threat of being added to the man boy love association mailing list is bad enough.

when i moved recently, i had to get rid of a bunch of stuff, put it on CL. the most emails i got were on the free stuff, and you wouldn't believe the idiocracy of it all.

some people will look a gift horse in the mouth and ask you for a warantee.

LOL...no ****.

My favorite CL experience was selling a $400 professional series printer...since I didnt need it I thought I'd give somebody a deal at $25, the cartridges in it alone were $120. Some ignorant lowballing **** offered me $10. I told him I'd rather smash it with a sledgehammer and shove the jagged pieces up his mom's ***.

my dad did the same with a lawnmower. he can't really do it anymore and uses a service. he put it in the washington post for $25, the guy that sells the ad space came and bought it that day....he still paid for the ad and had to deal with all the calls that week.
