I posted some tablecloths from the wedding on craigslist and can’t believe how many stupid responses. I very clearly said the tablecloths were rectangular and gave the dimensions and that I was a person, not a business. I have had SEVERAL people ask if they were round, and four people said they needed round ones. I have had people offer insanely low prices (no, I am not willing to sell $300 worth of tablecloths for $20!) or ask to rent them from me. I finally sold it, but am really amused at people. I am fighting the urge to be obnoxious in my replies.
Anyone else have good stories about people with no common sense?

@guitargirl: People in Canada use Kijiji a lot. I was looking for a dinning room table and found a perfect one really cheap. I made all the arrangements to go and pick it up. Well the day came and I called the guy, no answer. Ok, so I send him an e-mail, he sends me back “Oh, well my wife pointed out that we are actually going to need this table at our new place so I am not selling it now.” THEN WHY DID YOU PUT IT ONLINE TO SELL IF YOU WEREN’T SURE!?!
Really? You couldn’t of sent me an e-mail back and told me that you couldn’t sell it to me! You had three weeks to tell me but you waited until the week after I was suppose to get the table to tell me this? After I pestered you with phone calls and an e-mail!?
Anyways I ended up getting a dinning room table with stools for FREE. So it all worked out. People are just internet dumb sometimes.

@guitargirl: I have never had success on craigslist. I tried selling a clarinet and I’d get so many spammers.

I put a lamp on Craigslist and gave a CLEAR description of it along with photos. I clearly said it’s gun metal grey in colour, blah blah blah. This woman shows up to pick it up and is surprised it’s not purple. Where did I say it was purple?! THEN she has the audacity to offer me less money because it’s not the colour she wanted. I nearly punched her.
There are WAY too many tire kickers on Craigslist, it’s awful.
