Craigslist Etiquette Is For Suckers.
I am totally a nice person.
Like nice to a fault.
Normally, when I find something amazing on Craigslist or at the thrift store and its being held for someone I politely ask the seller to call me back if it falls through.
Do you know how many people have called me back?
Anyways there are a few things that still haunt me in my ultimate house makeover that haunt me in my sleep.
You know treasures that you just arent going to find again. Curse you stupid barstools.
So the reason for this post?
I found some dining room chairs on Craigslist tonight that I DIED over. Like really, I was hyperventilating when I called the seller.
Someone was supposed to pick them up tomorrow at noon. The seller was so nice and said she would call me tomorrow if they decided not to get them.
CRAP. CRAP. CRAP. CRAP. CRAP!
It was the “my life will never be compete without you feeling” that you get when your 8th grade boyfriend breaks up with you.
So what did I do?
I called the seller back and offered her more money.
She had to call her mom who owns the chairs.
FINALLY after like an hour she called back and told me that she would.
I am freakin excited and a little (ok a lot) guilty.
I would never do this on something that I thought I could find again.
I mean I have been thrifting and hunting CL for a year solid and have never seen anything like these chairs.
Am I evil?
Please tell me no.
And please don’t ever do this to a piece I have on hold. Mmmmkay thanks.
So what do you think? Have you ever been a CL cheater? Do you hate me now?
