Last week's poll contained a series of questions describing the ridiculous exchange that resulted from my selling a massage chair cushion thing
on Craigslist. Evan's stepfather's mom had given it to Evan's uncle, the uncle never used it and when we mentioned we were going to buy one of these at Bed Bath and Beyond, he gave it to us with the stepgrandmother's blessing, who was happy to see it get used. I assume she got it on QVC, since that was the only place on the intarnets that had a photo of it. I was happy enough to throw it away, but gave it a shot on Craigslist and got a response within an hour.
The opening emails were normal enough, establishing location and pickup times and such. When I told the lady which metro stops I was near, she wrote back saying one was convenient and would meet me there at 7am. I'll be damned if I'm at
the metro at 7, so I tell her the afternoon is better. She says she can't do the afternoon since she uses a vanpool to get home, but could drive into work one day and meet me at my house at 7am, since she has to be at work at 7:45. I say as long as she doesn't mind me being in my pajamas, that's fine by me. She said she's thinking of coming the following morning, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut....( Ooh! Ooh! Interactive Story!!!Collapse )
