The Power of the Craigslist

0
Well I posted an ad on craigslist to part with my dear sweet dining room table. It has served two functions.

  1. To put a table runner on.
  2. To put some vases filled with stones and water and a curly Bamboo thingy.

Other then that I have used it as an ironing board a few times and it was given to me for free. I was hoping to part with it for the matter of $30 for the ex roommates power bill. But that didn’t seem reasonable since I acquired the table from a previous roommate for $0. So I listed it on craigslist.

I have received so many phone calls about this table.  So far everyone has flaked out. A woman called me this morning named Linda and she is supposed to be coming to pick it up tonight. If she doesn’t I am going to this woman named Kelly. Oddly enough she is a Utah phone number. She sounds rather peppy. Peppy people always have good energy that is nice to absorb. But I am getting all these calls and voicemails and haven’t figured out a system to call these people back.

Anyone have any recommendations on how to handle a large amount of phone calls. I just want the table out of the house. I am moving on Saturday and can’t take it with me. If you are a local to me feel free to shoot me a notice with your contact info if Linda bails out or Kelly.

    Man, that’s why when I have free stuff on Craigslist, I never give out my phone number–I just have them reply to email. I don’t get slammed with emails because once I have someone coming to get it, I delete the add!
