I have a love/hate relationship with Craigslist.
I want to love it, because it is free and
it does come in handy when you need to make something disappear.
ANYTHING you list as 'free' is gone in
half a second, tops.
BUT..I HATE it
mostly because of all the FLAKES that troll on there.
Say you advertise a job you need done.
You get instant responses from people 1000s of miles away, who really want the work, or people who say they are qualified, but don't leave a phone number.
Excuse me, I didn't mention I was
in the ad..don't make me try,
it gives me a headache.
And, last, but certainly most COMMON,
are the folks that actually seem to BE qualified,
but just can't do it TODAY, or tomorrow, or over the weekend, but for SURE can do it Monday, but when Monday rolls around they don't have the part, yadda, yadda, yadda.
The BEST part (my personal favorite part)
is, when you repost the ad again,
THAT guy gets all bent and sends you snarky email.
Because we had a DEAL, that somehow he just couldn't firm up, but we did anyway????
to which I say:
(You know who you are, Mr. formica installer
in Garden Grove CA.
There is a special place in
for all C-Fs, and it looks VERY much
like the DMV in Bell Gardens on a Monday morning,
and is JUST as eternal.
Btw, you are second to LAST in the line and the troll behind you has a huge boner.)
Why yes..I DO feel much better, thanks for asking!
Now I can get back to the
rainbows & unicorns
that my life is(mostly) made of.
