Tired of people wanting something for nothing!

Man, I know times are tuff, and people are selling things like crazy just for a few extra bucks. I know I am, but I swear one of these days real soon, I think I am going to snap.

You put somthing up for sale, maybe you put the price so low that it is your lowest possible take for it or you put best offer. What ever the case, and it is unbelievable the amount of people out there who expect you to basically give it to them. On top of that they might even want it delivered to thier front door.

I have a few cars for sale, two are best offers and one is firm. The one that is firm, I had two people today offer have of my price. Two other people called me, left messages and when I called them back, they asked where I am located. It is in the listing or in my information. Then they tell me, "Oh well that is too far for me!" Then don't f-ing call me and waste my time then.

Or the person who wants it, and tells you they are goning to come get it and post it sold or pending then they never show up or call!

Holy crap.

were you actually looking to sell anything? I noticed there are some open reasonable inquiries on your thread(mine included) that have been unaddressed.

Another way to look at it may be...when you put something up for sale with an asking price or best offer, you may be opening the door to that persons best offer! If you don't want legitimate offers (what someone is willing to pay) don't open that door by using o.b.o in your ad.
