Selling stuff on Craigslist is like meeting the clients of Walmart in cyberspace.
For example, I am sick and tired of tripping over the bassinet we used ten months ago for three weeks. So I gave the word; post this thing on Craigslist and make it disappear. This is the same bassinet we bought off someone else from Craigslist, we paid them a handsome $25. They had also used it for the requisite three weeks. It has been used for a total of six weeks. No lie.
I want it out of the way so we posted it on Craigslist for $15. This thing, from a store is a $60 item. Okay it is not new, it is used. $15 and you can take it away.
The first response asked, “Are you taking offers on it.” C’mon shithead. This is a bassinet for $15, not a used car. Get a life.
Next shithead emails to say they live and work in Chilliwack. “Would you accept $10 and deliver it to my workplace?”
My response? I will deliver this thing as far as I can throw it. If you want it, it is sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac in Burnaby. Take it away.
