No One Wants To Come To Your Bed

, , , | Right | March 6, 2021

It’s my first time selling furniture online. I’m offering it for free as long as you pick it up, as there isn’t furniture donation pickup in my area. I post pictures of the bed and shelves and give the address to the closest store near me so people can gauge the distance.

Email: “I’d love to look at your bed! Where are you?”

Me: “We’re near [Store Address]. If you decide to take it home, I’ll send you my home address. When can you pick it up?”

Email: “I want to pick it up today! Send me the real address.”

Me: “Great! Here’s my actual address. You can pick it up now or anytime until nine.”

Email: “I’ll be there at four.”

Later, at 5:00 pm:

Me: “Hey! You didn’t show. Did something happen?”

Email: “I decided it was too far.”

This happened several more times, with slight variations, until I gave up and just trashed it. For the record, I stopped giving out my address and told them I’d meet them at that store. I didn’t want a million flaky strangers to have my address, after all.
