Craigslist you tease...

This past week I have been overwhelmed by my house. I kept finding things that needed to be put away, but we had so much stuff taking up our closet space. So the other night I decided our house needed to be de-cluttered, and we needed to donate all of our junk. Yesterday I came home from school around five, and got to work. I got all of the things I wanted to put on craigslist together, took pictures, and posted them in the free section, with pictures included. I posted, a floor lamp, table lamp, laundry sorter, and a very nice ottoman my mother-in-law gave us (beautiful, but not my style). Within 5-10 minutes I received phone call, after phone call of people wanting to come pick up my stuff. I was on the phone with one person giving them directions to my house, and five people called during that 3 minute conversation. I was so happy, within a few minutes I had everything arranged to be picked up. Mind you, I had a total of 10 calls, and 15 emails for my stuff, so I felt bad about all of the people that called in but I had to tell them they were already spoken for. Anyways, I wait for everyone to stop by, and I start to clean out my closets, Ryan and I threw away loads of stuff, and put together boxes to be donated. And, the hours pass, and NO ONE SHOWS UP! I had all of these people call to pick up the stuff, and many more dying to get the FREE stuff, and no one shows up. I was so irritated! So today I'm going to post all of my items again and specify that if they can't get here within an hour, don't bother showing up, because I don't want to waste another night waiting for people to come get my FREE stuff, when I could have easily dropped everything off at a goodwill so quickly! Sorry for the vent, but I had to get that out. Have a lovely Memorial day weekend, I'll be cleaning out my house, laying by the pool, and working on my summer tan :)

GEEZ that is so gay! i'd be soooo annoyed! craiglist shoppers can be frustrating, same thing happened with me when i tried selling my skateboard. i decided to keep it anyway, but i hate when people don't follow through. especially when it's FREE. WEIRD!
