AHHHHHHHH!


I get so aggravated sometimes with Craiglist! I found this dresser late last night and thought it would be perfect for our bedroom. No e-mail on the listing, so I waited till the morning to call. I called at 10am and he told me to call back at noon. Called at noon and left a message. He called me back at 4pm. I planned on picking up the piece at 7pm after work. He told me to call when I was on my way for the address. Did just that. But when I called, he said he sold it! NOOOOOO! I was thinking about it all day! I was decorating in my head!

I am so with you! Craigslist is awesome, but some of the folks that have things on there could use a tad more tack. It's so sad to loose out like you did today. Hopefully tomorrow will land you something good! Love your blog, I've been following you for awhile, I think you are close to me, I live in Snohomish!

I totally agree with the others!!
Craigslist can be so good, yet so frustrating. But I also agree that something better is coming your way!!
Keep looking :)

UGH! Id be so mad! Unlike the others, I havent gotten any furniture on there thus far but after reading this it makes me skeptical to do so in the future! I do hope you find a better piece in the future!

Bad juju and karma for a year to that guy!
I never understand why people feel the need to be a huge jerk.
This just means..........you will find a more better one for less money!

Pamela said...

That would suck!! I had a lady who was selling a buffet and I was on my way out the door and she called to say she changed her mind and wanted to keep it. I dreamed abt it all night long. Feel your pain!

David said...

hi susan! how have you been? i saw your sweet comment on madebygirl's blog and just had to come over to and say hi! i hope you're doing well. p.s. you are looking really hot in your profile photo... todd is one lucky man.

Susan said...

so..I only know one David...and that's my dad...which would make that comment completely inappropriate. :) So....I'm gonna say that Yvonne is using her husband's account? :) If so--as soon as I have a baby I'm gonna need you to take some pics! :)
