What the hell is wrong with people nowadays? My wife is a teacher at a small private school. They have (I wish I could say had) a small antique-style couch and chair (not real antiques) that they want to get rid of. They asked me to put it on FB Marketplace and Offer-Up for FREE. It's been listed on both since Tuesday. I've had many people (I think 18 at this point) contacting me and saying they want them. The first four people that supposedly wanted them have all flaked and have not shown up to get them. Basically ghosting me after not showing up. It's like what the hell! I even rescheduled a doctor's appointment today because this last guy swore he'd show up by 5 pm at the latest to get them. This guy wanted them so bad he offered me $100 to let him come get them yesterday before the last person that was supposedly on the way to get them (who also flaked). So, I've now offered them to the next person in line. I wonder how many times I'm going to have to do this to get rid of these things. You'd think these people would at least let me know if they changed their minds or got tied up and couldn't make the meet.
