Perusing Craigslist today as I often do, my interest was piqued by a free vintage steelcase desk. Upon further inspection, I realized that it just might not be worth my while:
The ad reads: "There is a pile of leftovers from my carport sale that are free to a good home- One large steel desk with chair, one nice white curtain rod (6', maybe?), a pair of counter brackets with countertop, and a few nick-nacks/bric-a-brac on top of the desk. Take what you need or all of it, but stay OUT of my patio, or I WILL shoot you. What I'm giving away is located at the end of the carport, under the mailbox, alongside the blacktop driveway. If it's gone when you get there, that means you were too late. Do not knock, do not call out, and do not go snooping. It's not worth it for you."
Then they give their address and "Thanks, and good luck " as if before you leave to pick up the stuff, you'd better lay your best dress clothes out on the bed for your relatives to take to the funeral home. Wow, this person sounds INTENSE. I love that "Do not call out " part as if the mere sound of another human's voice is going to send them into a hellish rage. That must have been one great yard sale.
Until next time,
x's and o's,
