I have had great experiences (I know, that’s unusual) with selling and buying stuff on CL, but man, freelance job hunting sucks. Everyone wants you to work for free (writer), especially in Los Angeles.

Once I had put some concert tickets up for sale on Craigslist and after the first reply, I had arranged to meet someone to sell him the tickets. Before I left, I got another call about the tickets and I told them that I was meeting someone else to sell the tickets shortly and they offered me a bit more to sell the tickets to them instead and they were much closer so it was more convenient to meet. I thought that sounded great, so I called the first guy to tell him that I wasn’t coming and as he was expressing his disappointment, I realized what I was doing and if I were in his shoes, I would be kinda ticked off, so I said forget all that, I will sell you the tickets as I had originally agreed to. I called the 2nd guy back to tell him and he understood, then I drove 30 minutes to meet the first guy and make less money, but at least I kept my word. I’m with you Link! That backpack dude should have kept his word.

I still feel the rage welling within when I recount my experience: 9-piece wicker patio furniture, $100. Several e-mails back and forth led to us setting Monday at 5 for pick-up. I went to the trouble to borrow a friend’s truck, took off work early to go by the bank, and another friend got a last-minute sitter so he could help. At 5 I start backing into the driveway, and in the rearview mirror I see someone putting furniture into a truck. I think, “There’s no way that is what it looks like it is.”

It was.

It seems someone had offered more, and she must have told him, “Fine, but get here before 5.” I was beyond shocked and offended, even more so when she acted like she was clueless as to who I was. It got worse, but it’s making me angry recounting it.

I am with Link. When you make a verbal agreement, you deal with it, even if you get a higher offer. That civility and courtesy is what makes us human.

Link, if you got to the place and tried it out and didn’t quite like it, would you have not payed the $55? Then that guy probably would have been thinking, “I should have sold it to the guy who was going to pay $60 and pick it up earlier…”

I think Link is correct. Once you tell someone you are selling it to them at a given price and a given time. Even if someone offers you MORE than the previous offer and will get it earlier, you have to turn them down. Your word is your bond. If people cannot trust what you say what can they trust? Sadly that way of thinking has died.

Ok, I’m feeling a tad bit of guilt now. I offered a car to my church’s benevolence ministry. They beat around the bush, then said they had someone who needed it, and then didn’t get back with me for a day or two, so I gave it to my neighbor who needed a car. Now I’m thinking I should have called the church back first if only to double check or back out gratiously.
