Over the last few weeks, I have listed some things on Craig’s List. We had way too many big “things” laying around collecting dust. But beware… you get some interesting offers. Here are a few examples:
- I had a 125 gallon fish tank with all accessories and stand listed for $600. A woman offered to trade me a used car. She sent me pictures of the 10 junkers sitting in her yard. I recognized one as a rusted, white 1990 Chevy Cavalier. The best comment was when she said “Some of them even run!”
- We are getting rid of our pool table. It was a fun toy in Boston, but we never really use it. The best offer was a trade for some guns. We are in Tennessee, so that wasn’t surprising.
- I have a mini-fridge that we used for 3 months when I was pumping a ton and was too lazy to take the milk downstairs. I just received another “trade” offer … of another mini-fridge that’s been sitting in a semi. Nice.
- I have our old vacuum cleaner listed. Some woman keeps sending me a sob stories about how she has to use a broom to clean the carpet in her entire house. She wants me to deliver the vacuum cleaner to her because she doesn’t have a car. She lives about 50 miles away. Seriously?!?
Craig’s List attracts a ton of crazies. But hey, its free and it provides some great entertainment.
