    You might be a Craigslist Idiot if….

    Inspired by the "you might be a gym idiot" thread... This is intended to be light hearted. If it's too "Misc" for the equipment forum, I apologize and I'll close the thread.

    You might be a Craigslist Idiot if....

    (1) Your sale has no photos or your sale photos are stock photos from the manufacturer's website If your description is also poor, then you're 2x an idiot. But if you're selling cement weights, then you're an a**.

    (2) Your photos are smaller than a postage stamp and/or the same resolution as the photos of the Loch Ness monster.

    (3) You never take down your sales after the items are sold. Your time is too valuable. If other people still read your ad and reply, it's easier for you just ignore them.

    (4) You send a one line email: "is it still available?" the same day that the sale was posted.

    (5) You say "I'll take it" and then never contact the seller again

    (6) You spend $50 on gas and six hours driving to save $50.

    (7) You get chatty and stick around after a buy.

    (8) You think it's ok for the sale items to be picked up two feet away from used kitty litter or garbage.

    (9) You ask detailed questions in numerous emails before finally disclosing your ridiculously low offer

    (10) You take photos of your Craigslist score and then use the same photos to flip the gear even though you're keeping the good stuff in the photos.

    11) You list an item without searching CL to see what similar items are going for. If there's someone listing the exact same thing for $300 and it's not moving, you're wasting your time listing yours for $500.

    12) You put "$_____ FIRM" as your asking price. CL shoppers love to haggle, and everybody wants to feel like they got a good deal. By stating up front that you're unwilling to negotiate, you're driving away a lot of potential buyers.

    (14) you low ball someone repeatedly, then finally admit you have the lowest price the person you want to buy from will accept, after the low ball.

    It surprises me how many people refuse to buy equipment from Elitefts because its too expensive but they will buy equipment from their competitors, then continue to go on EFS website regulary to educate themselves for FREE

    15) You have an item for sale, but its buried under tools, clothes, trash, and generally indistinguishable from the clutter around it. Clearly you're a busy douchebag, so just take a quick blurry photo of it as it sits and post it as is.

    16) Even though flipping a photo is just about easier than turning on the computer....because you're still a busy douchebag, you never take the 2 seconds to do it. Turning your head sideways isn't a big deal and is a small price to pay for the awesome standard bench press you want $300 for.

    17) If the title of your CL posting is something very generic like "Exercise Equipment" and you waste your time clicking on it just to see a picture of a Made for TV Ab device or Perfect Pushup bars

    18) If your CL photos are posted sideways

    19) If you are selling used equipment at full price or more than brand new equipment.

    22. You feel the need to label every piece of cheaply made overpriced rusted garbage you sell as a "great Christmas gift". Santa must really hate some of these sellers.

    wow. thats crazy, that someone would go to all that trouble. Glad to hear you didnt sell them to him.

    23. Post reads "Gym Flooring" and its just used stall mats and he wont go less than $50 a mat (when there is 4 tractor supply stores in a 30 mile radius that sells for $40)

    24. When they refuse to meet you at a local location (walmart, cofee shop,etc.) when its a simple small item that can be transported. ( I hate going to peoples house, always feel like im gonna be set up)

    25. When they sell a piece of crap power rack for $400 (happens all the time on my local CL)

    26. When they sell semi-rusted 300lb olympic weight set for $150 (local academy sports sells them for $140 new like 4x a year)

    gee i should feel lucky considering all the rusty weights i've sold for $110 and $120 bucks then . the first one was less than 300 pounds, more like 225 pounds at the most. it included a45 pound bar though

    You're a craigslist idiot if:

    You post five copies of your ad all on the same day;

    You PUT EVERYTHING IN ALL CAPS;

    You use stupid little symbols to draw attention to your ad;

    You place the same ad all over the state;

    Or, you use exclamation marks.

    You don't post what vehicles the parts are for...

    Eg - I'm looking for a camper shell... and people are too retarded to post dimensions, or at least if it came off a full size or compact truck.

    Or my FAVORITE - Selling tires and or wheels with no size listed. DOH

    27. Person agrees to meet up in person to buy stuff. THEN they lowball you when they go to pay. Something like "well, I can do $120 instead of $150.."

    I don't mind when they lowball in person, because I know that if they're interested enough to make the drive over here to look at what I'm selling, they probably have my asking price in their pocket. Play hard ball and be prepared to walk away if you can't get what you want out of them. Most of the time they'll give in and raise their offer.

    I atually enjoy the haggling, but I do my research before I list my items, so I have a good idea what my stuff is worth in my local market.

    I owe some of you reps but it says that I've given out too many so I'll catch up later.

    Here's another one:

    So you've got the cash? Great! I didn't bring the stuff with me. It's in that storage facility over there... [points to a secluded area a block away].

    Thats when i say ok ill follow you there, get in car and go home.
    It surprises me how many people refuse to buy equipment from Elitefts because its too expensive but they will buy equipment from their competitors, then continue to go on EFS website regulary to educate themselves for FREE

    I love when they lowball me in person... Because I only do transactions at my house(I've met up with people before... They're late, lowball after I wasted my gas and time, etc), I have no problem sending someone on their way if they don't come correct.....it's almost as satisfying as getting my money.

    Yup. Deals for fitness equipment or fishing gear are done here, but deals for firearms are done in a public place during daylight.

    Hehehe....this hits kind of close to home.....a few months ago I had a guy who responded to my ad for a set of weights. I made arrangements for him to stop by one night after work, but for whatever reason I didn't give him the address right then. I didn't hear back from him until the next day. In the intervening time, I checked out his Facebook page. He mentioned that he had just been released from jail a month or two before, and one of his pictures showed him with a bunch of guys. He was holding a beer in one hand and a pistol in the other. When I heard back from him the next day, I told him that I had some errands to run that night, and could meet him at the local Walmart, which was closer to him anyway. He never showed.

    28. You drive an hour and a half to buy something and, when you get there, you ask the seller if he will negotiate a lower price. (I think they cover this in 'Negotiating 101', do they not?)

    I have a chest of drawers up for sale at £120, someone came to have a look today and offered £70. And they wanted me to deliver it to them for free!

    Guess what they got told...

    Sounds about right. You could be offering 5lb gold bars for $1 and some jackass would come along and offer you $.25, freakin' lowballers.

    I always worry about something bad happening but so far I have been lucky. I own multiple guns but I've never felt the need to ever carry one on me when someone comes over to buy something. I have had men come to buy things that are carrying guns though. Usually someone who is carrying (legally) is pretty responsible though. I always just figured if someone came over and decided to rob me of my equipment and cash then its not worth getting in a shootout over it anyway.

    Well, if someone does rob you, I hope they don't expect you to load up the weights too!!!!!

    I'm gonna stick it on ebay as well, I have seen a few other drawers of the same model going for circa £120 bidding.

    Who says such a person won't shoot before they do the robbing?
