Isn't this strange?
« on: March 18, 2014, 11:41:27 am »
I find it so strange in the buy, sell, trade section that a person advertises a product, you PM them, leave a message on the thread and email them and you never get a response.

I can understand if the item was advertised some time back but when it is current, then there is really no reason not to respond.

If it is sold, then just put that on the thread.

This has happened to me quite often, more than 5 times at least.

Weird.

Waygooks being inconsiderate? Hardly that odd, is it?

Waiting for OP's response on a potentially sold item:

i have posted in there, and never had anyone respond to me (on some posts) 

1) requested an item.
2) sold items.

i did sell some heaters back in the fall, and those had a good response...to bad you didnt want one, i could have replied to your email/pm/posts ;)

Oh man, one of my biggest frustrations.  When I was coming here I sold most of my household items and furniture on craigslist.  People would email again and again, I'd send more pics, we'd set up a time for them to come over and be ready and they wouldn't show.  If they did come, they'd start haggling on the price we already agreed on, or start trying to offer half the price for half the item (I don't need the dish in the microwave, so how about I give you 15 instead of 30!).  It was insane.  People are idiots. 

I haven't bought that much online on this site, but when I have it's been mostly good.  Except one time the girl who I talked to about buying things wasn't home and her boyfriend acted like it was news to him and wouldn't sell me the stuff at the agreed upon prices.  It was a hassle because I had not gotten similar things from someone else due to this deal and I had to take 2 buses just to get there.   As I looked up our emails on my phone he called her and she denied it, too, until I showed him the emails.  Then he wouldn't even open the door for me as I carried the stuff out.  People are idiots. 

I think it's important to remember that people are idiots.

This! OMG. I was leaving CO to come here last year and I was selling my car and that is where I got the weirdest people. One guy asked me to SHIP the car to him!?!  :huh: Another lady didn't have a valid license so she couldn't register the car and wanted me to sell it to her and keep it registered under me... :shocked:
I finally sold it to a college kid who drove it once and paid me cash that day and registered it that day, but it took a whole lot of weirdos to get that darn car sold.  And others who came for my little stuff did the haggling crap.

One guy refused to clean his oven, said it was the buyers problem. It looked straight up gross.

Also, I bought a broken guitar. I wondered why the price was so low, but I figured they were just trying to get rid of it. It looked and seemed fine when I bought it, just thought it needed tuning and new strings...

Honestly, I haven't had a problem buying stuff from other Waygooks. I really don't want to go through the hassle of selling my own things though, so I'll probably just give them away.
