I believe in karma.
Congratulations, you are now the proud recipient of BAD CRAIGSLIST KARMA.
Thanks for showing up last night, we really enjoyed waiting around for you.
Does the fact that I just emailed that to the chick who never showed up to buy our dresser last night make me a total asshole?
Kevin said it's to be expected, it's just an online sale....and to that I say: IT DOESN'T FUCKING MATTER! It's about being a nice person. Bitch had my phone number and everything....how hard is it to call and say "sorry we've changed our minds?"
There really should be a CL forum called "Bad Karma" or "The Forum of Shame" and everyone who rips people off, doesn't show up, has bad juju, etc gets their ass called out on it....that way, you can check to see if the person you're doing business with is a total fucktard.
So, here would be my entry:
Monica D. Trujillo SSgt 721 SFS/SFO. Don't be fooled by all the fancy trustworthy-sounding military gobbledygook behind the name. She will email you 5 times about how her cousin is going to help her move it and oh yeah, what's the address again? And then you will sit around for like 3 hours waiting, after you've totally destroyed your bedroom just to get the fucking dresser ready to move. Don't sell anything to this chick.
(Hmmmm, ya think someone has PMS?)
OK...I am feeling all bad now, like maybe she got in a wreck on the way to my house or she got hijacked on Federal or her car broke down and she was kidnapped?
Siiiggggggh. Being a bitch is incredibly guilt-inducing.
