I don't understand people sometimes. Seriously.
Yesterday, I posted an ad on craigslist to sell my XL Dog Crate for $75. (Brand new it is around $130)
I bought it for Romey because he likes to lay down in closed-in/small spaces (not really sure why).
Unfortunately, he ended up not liking the crate (even though I removed the door so he could go in and out whenever he wanted).
Anyway, it's been sitting in my garage for the past year and I decided to sell it so I could get some extra money for my cruise.
So, I posted the ad.
Yesterday evening I received a message from a lady asking if I would sell it to her for $45. I responded and told her that I could only go down to $60.
Here is her response:
I lost all my stuff in the fire my house my everything.. And now I am trying to get things I really need and start our life over again..so if no one gives you what you want for it maybe you can just let me buy it for $45.. That would really help us out..Our puppy misses his safe place, but his melted in the fire..Thank you for your time...
Ok, wow! I felt really bad for her and almost emailed her right away to say that I would give it to her for $45. But my roommate said I was crazy and that she was probably just using that as an excuse to get a discount. I asked my mom and she said she wasn't going to tell me what I should do and she wouldn't even tell me what she would have done in my place. I called Sarah and she said that if I need the money then I can do what's best for me but she also said that you can never go wrong with helping someone out and if she is lying then that's on her.
So I decided that I would try to sell it for $75 the rest of this week and at the family garage sale this Saturday and if no one bought it I would give it to her for $45.
I sent her an email telling her how sorry I am about her loss. I told her that I really need the money which is why I'm selling the crate in the first place but that if no one bought it by Saturday afternoon - I would give it to her for $45.
After I sent the email, I had an idea. I decided to look her up on facebook. And guess what? She lives in Georgetown. 45-60 minutes AWAY from where the fires were!!!! There was no mention on her facebook about losing her house in a fire. Seriously, someone would have at least posted some comment about it, right?
I felt so sorry for her and was actually considering going way down on the price and she was LYING!! What kind of person uses other people's tragedies to get a discount? Seriously? Who does that?
Some people... tsk tsk tsk.
Ok. I'm done ranting.
