So this week I've been bitten by the Craigslist bug. I really want to find a Little Tykes outdoor play scape, slide, or something like it. I don't want to buy it new and I don't want to pay 100 bucks for it either.
I've found two ads in the last two days that were DEALS, but alas they have slipped through my fingers. The second one I replied to 11 minutes after it was posted. And that would have been an awesome deal. Two playscapes for $25!!! Argh.
I did however find a great deal on a Vtech Smartville Alphabet Train Station. It was only $15!! Wahoo. Although I paid for it dearly in annoying email communication:
My first email:
Is this still available? If so, I'd be interested in buying. Thanks.
Yes it is. Let me know if you want to look at it. Thanks.
.....Uh, what part of "I'd be interested in buying" was unclear? Of course I want to look at it...
My second email:
Yes, I'd love to buy it.
Okay well I am home all day except for this tues. Let me know.
...Okay, we're getting somewhere...
My third email:
I can stop by tomorrow morning. Just let me know where and what time is best for you. Thanks.
I live off kelly ln in pflugerville past falcon pointe. Anytime after 9 is fine just let me know.
...Off kelly ln where? What's the friggin' address? What do I have TO DO to buy this thing?!!!!
My fourth email:
Great. I can come by around 10am if that works. What's the address and I can map it? Thank you.
(**finally reveals address, which I will not post here, haha**)
Oh my goodness!!!!!! This could so have been a 3 email conversation instead of 8. Like:
Me: Hey I want to buy this.
Her: Great, I live HERE and am available at THIS time.
Me: Great, see you THEN.
