Just had to vent. I get so tired of people sometimes. There just doesn’t seem to be much trust anymore. Just recently I thought I would get on FB marketplace to see if I could find a couple things. A few campouts ago I accidentally backed over my favorite lightweight camp kitchen I used for scout camping. Not salvageable. Since we haven’t been camping since it wasn’t a big issue, but every once in a while I’ll do a search in case I find a decent one that would work. Sure enough, find a guy about 30 min away who has a Kelty Basecamp kitchen, been discontinued for a couple years. Looks like it will fit the bill and then some, good condition although bag is a little worn/faded. Tell him I will get it, gives me his address. He advises today doesn’t work, I had conference calls all day on Monday, but I could come up Wed and pick it up. All good. Message him tonight to confirm a time to meet “Oh, meant to text you, some guy came and picked it up today”. Ugh - I am half tempted to sign him up for porn or something. Got a busted ipod classic, needs a new motherboard. Same thing - thought I would lookk jsut to see, find one in the next town over, same model but bad battery, selling cheap. Figured why not, message him, again get an address, agree to meet in the morning since it is late. Text him that I am about to leave, “Oh sorry, I just sold it to someone else”. Really? I mean, is it really that hard to be decent and have good manners? I ran into the same thing years ago when I was looking for my pup, but that was about the only time I saw this behavior with any regularity, and considering it took time out of your day to show a pup and not have it sell I can understand that. I have bought and sold stuff off CL and FB for years, and it seems within the last year I have seen more examples of this sort of thing. Really makes you wonder about our collective future. I always advise other potential buyers of their place in line, it just seems the right thing to do, and keep everyone informed of what is transpiring. Ok, rant over, thanks for listening/reading, or not. I’m just going to forget about the general public for a bit, and go back into my cave.
