Hi there!
I saw your ad on craigslist, do you still have the spin bike? I was about to buy a spin bike on Amazon, but I’d rather buy a used one (reduce, reuse, recycle!). I’ve only got $250 to spend on a bike, and I know this is half of what you’re asking, but I thought I’d at least email to see if you’re interested. Let me know if this is something you could do, if not, no big deal!

Well, I don’t mind washing my car, but if you wouldn’t mind…it does need to be vacuumed.

Settle down! I just don’t want to waste my time or yours if you aren’t in my price range. It’s not a big deal. I will get one off Amazon.

What a JERK. You can see from my first email that I was really nice and immediately his first response is short, curt and riddled with horrible grammar. I was trying to make fun of him in my second email with the “U” and the “ur”, but I don’t think he got it.  If I could hit rewind and do it again, I would have responded with the following:


Just because your name sucks, don’t take it out on me. Why would I waste my time looking at the bike if you aren’t going to be flexible with the price? It’s pointless.

Just a tip, using ridiculous abbreviations and poor grammar is only acceptable if you’re a 4th grader or you’re sexting. It’s not ok for a grown man to write this: “Its still available. Not gonna talk price until U take a look first.” There are at least three mistakes in your response! Also, an earthlink email address? Why don’t you join us in the 21st century and get a real email address. Let me guess, you still use AOL as your web browser?

Good luck selling your bike, ASS.

Hehehe. I would never send an email like that, but it sure would be funny if I did. P.S. – I don’t really think the name Don sucks, I was just trying to think of mean things to say. I also don’t mind abbreviations in moderation. Oh, and the “DonX” is not really the first part of his email.


weird story.

This weekend we posted our barstools on craigslist. In our new place, we don’t have a need for them and they were just sitting around taking up space. We got several emails expressing interest but there was one in particular that caught our eye. It was from a girl and she gave a long winded story about when they (her and her bf) had been apartment hunting they had seen a set of barstools in an apartment and her bf fell in love with them. She explained how they’d been searching and searching, but couldn’t find the ones they’d seen anywhere. And he was not going to be happy until they found them. In the email, she expressed that our barstools looked pretty close.

This morning, her and her bf came over to pick up the barstools. We started chatting with them, and it turns out they are moving into OUR old apartment! I nearly fell out of my freakin’ barstool! It was OUR barstools they’d seen in the first place during an apartment viewing!  WEIRD. Needless to say, they bought them!

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
