seriously??

do you ever check out craigslist? it's great, i've bought and sold things on it and i think it's a beautiful thing but everyone once in a while you'll be perusing the ads and find some total piece of junk whose owner is convinced is worth waaaaaaay more than it actually is. i know a lot of us are guilty of this, it's hard not to attach "sentimental value" to your junk but it's important to put yourself in your prospective buyer's position and understand that they are not going to think your 20-year-old rust colored Lazyboy recliner's stains give it "character".

this may not be the best example but i was just checking things out when i saw this post about an iron bed. $150??? just because you use the word ANTIQUE doesn't make it so! and i guess what also rubbed my the wrong way about this post is that this is at least the third time the owner has posted it. hello??? and geez, in looking at an older post for it, it started at $300! glad they at least cut the price in half but it doesn't look promising, does it?

when people post stuff like this, or some vague post like "bedroom set for sale, wood, some scratches--$800 with NO pictures you want to post to them just saying, "seriously?" do they think that's going to move the items?

i apologize if i sound a bit bitter, i'm sick today and hugely pregnant. 'nuff said.

i would love for someone else to post an example of a lame craigstlist post, come on, play along and find a fun link we can laugh at!

Ok...I found one! An "erotic" watch?!?

I'm a bit scared to think of a grown woman size 14 wearing this dress...except as a Halloween costume I don't see how or where this would EVER be appropriate!!!

these are both awesome!!!

is it the USB drive that's erotic? or just the watch in general? after looking at it for a few seconds i did find it pretty attractive....don't know that i was turned on necessarily but who knows what might happen if i wore it on my wrist?

and i love the dress, i like how they say it's really appropriate for ANY occasion. the only foreseeable concern with getting the dress would be where on earth will i find shoes that might perfectly compliment it?? you know, why do i have this feeling that if i look around for them hard enough i could find them on craigslist somewhere?
