Default Craigslist is crazy....

I don't use it very often, but I have a portable dishwasher that i wanted to sell. I redid my kitchen recently and bought all new appliances. I posted it about 15 minutes ago. I have received 3 calls saying they want it and can come over in a half an hour with cash...I guess I priced it too low...lol. Amazing..

Maybe they thought you were selling a Mexican dishwasher. They want to murder and rape HIM.

Actually, I've been with my wife for almost twenty years, getting some attention from a stranger might be kinda nice..

Same thing happened to me last spring when I listed my '94 Toyota 4x4 with a Meyer 6' poly plow. I actually had a bidding war on my property! I listed it for $1K, by the time the dust settled, I had $1500 cash!

Yep. Craigslist is filled with lots of interest and no shows. Good luck with the sale, try not to get murdered over a dishwasher.

There were some really old curtains in my house when I bought it. I decided to leave them for a little while so it was one less thing that I needed to deal with at the moment. When I repainted the living room, it was time for the curtains to go. I washed them and put them on craigslist for free, explaining to people that the first person to show up would get them and that I would remove the listing as soon as they were gone. I got a total of around 20 emails about them and they were gone within the hour. But what really gets me is that one person, the fourth person to respond, I think, actually got mad at me because I didn't save them for her. She claimed that her families house burned down and that they were in the process of rebuilding their lives. First, I didn't know anything about this until after they were gone. Second, I didn't know if she was making stuff up to try and get ahold of them to resell them and make money, but when I asked her to prove what she said, she got even more mad at me.

All I could do was laugh. Which apparently got her really p!ssed at me.
