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.

I hate, HATE this crap. I do the exact same thing. I'd say one out of every 3 deals on CL I do this happens. The nerve of people to try that when you're in person, especially after agreeing to the price when they email you. Ugh, just gets my goat.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I've seen talk on CAG in one of the Craigslist threads about using that tactic.

I had it occur before but never before showing them and I never haggle. That is why I never budge on the meet up place when I am selling something since it is only 2 miles away. A friend of mine is a bank manager and doesn't care if I do the occasional transaction in his parking lot.
If I knew that I could 100% get away with assaulting someone i'd probably beat the shit out of them before I left. Where I do my transaction is recorded though.
Oh and a hilarious one. I sold a 27 inch old fat screen TV to a guy on a Harley who some how strapped it to the back and rode off. Has nothing to do with anything else. I just like that story.

My disdain for craigslist is what brought me to CAG, actually. Before, I primarily bought and sold lot of my stuff on craigslist and to be fair, did get some great deals. But the haggling and shady people took its toll. LOL, people would guilt me with stories of dying grandparents and pets; lost jobs; even had a "youth pastor" ask me to sell some PS3 games for a ridiculously reduced price because he was working with "orphaned" youth. I'm not saying these people were lying, but how fucking inappropriate is it to guilt people in negotiations? Word to the wise (sure most of you already know): Google Voice is your friend!

Anytime I get rid of my furniture or electronics on craigslist I always get people who claim to run foster homes or youth centers asking for cheaper rates. At least 1 a day before the post goes down. I usually respond with a one word no if they keep pestering me then depending how drunk I am then I might respond with my assholish banter.
I once put 8 things up in one day and got the same foster story thing on almost every one of my items. I responded no and they responded something about Jesus so I sent them to the mall to meet me and I never bothered showing up. I need to check my google voice because I think I still have the funny voicemails they left me from the mall because it was so funny how someone claiming to be christian was screaming dropping F bombs.

Damn, that dontevenreply.com collection is fantastic.

There are some angry replies to ads in the "Items Wanted" sections of the OC and IE (scroll down to the "here are some matching ads from nearby areas" section).

Probably all from the same guy, but he's really on fire and raging at all the deadbeats/beggars.

The Wii U isn't particularly hard to get right now, but before Walmart's layaway promotion, I saw several preorders like those sell on eBay for hundreds of dollars. People will pay a LOT of money to get new consoles, especially once demand goes up. The timing is bad for those ads, but as the release date nears, selling those little pieces of paper may become a real possibility.
