Craig's List, who wants your CRAP?!

Ok this is another venting/ranting post. But I just have to do it because my husband has spent a lot of time on Craig's List lately "window shopping" and he always has to bring to my attention the funny things he finds on there. We love Craig's list and actually sold our truck on it. Also let me also preface this by saying I AM NOT THE BEST SPELLER! And if you have read much of my blog you also know that my grammar is not the best! But I do know how to use spell check and I do try to proof read for the most part of my posts. So here is my rant. Why do people post things that are so obviously spelled terribly!!!! Or the grammar is horrid!!! There was one man posting that he wanted to help others list there stuff and sell it and everything was misspelled, and the grammar was terrible! Who wants that guy to sell your stuff when he can't even write a decent add to try to help others sell. Here is my other problem with Craig's list. Or the there are the people who post picture where you can't even see what it is they are selling. Sometimes they take the picture at night and you can barely see the out line of the thing or they take a picture of a boat and they leave the cover on so you can 't see much of the boat. Larry loves to look at the free section here is a few of the crazy things he has found, half used box of Maxi pads with wings, half used box of condoms, 3 pairs of used tightie whitie under ware (only worn once or twice), punch bowl with only one crack and chipped mismatched cups, the dog igloo that has bullet holes and a large crack, used carpet dirty, worn and stained, a couch that is worn out and has the springs sticking out but they have suggested you could put cardboard over that, Old broken TVs, worn out car tires, Dogs that have only bitten one person, broken ceramic tiles they suggest someone could use them for a mosaic, a bloody mattress from a home birth (don't worry it has been professionally cleaned!), and someone offering to give free hair cuts because they like "playing with hair." Have any of these people ever heard of a GARBAGE CAN??????? Are they crazy? Who wants their crap?!

Oh my gosh I laughed so hard at this post that I almost peed my pants! I loved the bloody matress. ICK! I agree who the freak wants this crap. It's called the DUMP for a reason people!

not to meantion that the gas to pick up some of this "Free stuff" would cost me more than just going to the store and buying it new. My advice, put a block on Craig's list, so Larry can't surf there for a while. Then he will just think the site is down. LOL
Though it is kind of funny.

It's amazing what people will try to give away. It's called "I'm too lazy to get rid of my junk myself." My pet peeve with craigslist is when I post free stuff and people call and say their coming and then they don't show up. NO more mrs. nice gal for me!

That is HILARIOUS! I feel the same way about pictures. If there's no picture or an unclear picture, forget about it. BTW, it's "underwear", not "under ware"...it's an important word, probably will be used a lot in upcoming posts, so I thought I ought to correct it for you :)
