Really? Man, as a seller I try to answer/respond to pm's as soon as I can. I at least let them know if I can't get measurements right away and let them know when I can get them.

Re: Anyone else getting played?

I'm getting that way posting locally on kijiji. Everyone says they want a bunch of stuff right away... I give them a discount for a bunch of items being sold all at once. Then I get "Oh I live an hour and a half away.. can you drop them off, or meet me half way?" When I say no... I get "OH.. well I have to figure out when I can come down to pick them up" and I don't hear anything. It's so frustrating. In the meantime I'm saying "they're pending" and I feel like a jerk. Even some of the back-up people who want it "RIGHT NOW" are making me wait. I'm not a store.... I don't deliver and honestly for the effort I may consider just listing them on here and eating the cost of shipping in order to sell something to someone who will actually send money in a reasonable time frame.

I tell myself that I will remember them and not deal w/ them again but, of course by the next day I have no clue who it was, just another sign that I do too many FSOT deals

Not on here but I responded to an ISO with "I have 2 crib sheets FFS." Buyer sent me her addy so I could calculate shipping, I PMed her a total (around $5) and my Paypal email addy, ages later she PMs me and says another seller went ahead and mailed her package without waiting to be paid for shipping, so she's no longer interested.

Anyone need two crib sheets? They're ready to mail!

That is so annoying. I don't usually get it here but on FB & esp CL. I emailed this lady back & forth for 3 days, told her I would take her insanely low ball offer, said I would meet her & packed up the items(41 bells) only to have her go poof. Ugh. Some people...

Yes. I had a mama tell me she wanted something a couple days ago and ask for my paypal address, then nothing. I even pm'd her a day later and told her someone else had asked about the item and to please let me know her intentions and she still didn't write back.
