So I made a craigslist post for about 15 unopened toys (super hero barbie sized dolls, some barbies) that I wanted to get rid of. I was looking into selling them on ebay over the past month so been keeping track of what they were going for. Decided against if because I never shipped a collectible and really just didn't want to mess packing it correctly and someone saying it was damaged or something. I priced it about 20-25% lowers than what the auctions ended at the past couple weeks on ebay so I posted that in the ad and posted $240 FIRM. No negotiation on price.
Get to the meet up spot and some asshat old man in a beat down Buick Celebrity from the late 80s shows up and tries to negotiate the price before I even open my trunk to show them to him the dolls. He goes "will you take 150 for it" right after we exchange hellos. I didn't say anything, just turned around and got in my car and just left. I was out of the parking lot within a minute after he said that.
What was hilarious is that he called me from an area code that would have taken him 45 minutes at least to get to the bank I was meeting him at which is only 5 minutes from me. That is if he lived there which I hope he did. He tried calling my google voice number like 6 times in the past hour afterwards but didn't leave any messages. Luckily I had 3 other people also email me for it and it went to an older lady who collects barbies.
I'm getting rid of a lot of stuff on craigslist in the coming weeks and hope I don't deal with many more of these idiots. I'm cleaning out an extra room that was pushing an episode of hoarders... without all the garbage and bugs.
