Stop asking stupid garage sale questions on Facebook
Just a tiny little morning rant over coffee....
You know how area cities and towns have local Facebook groups? And often they post that they are having a garage sale? And many times they post photos of some of the items so people can see what to expect if they come?
These are not marketplace listings selling things on Facebook. This is when they are holding a sale in their driveway or garage and simply posting the date and address of the physical sale.
There are a few really little towns around me and I've read their pages and I just shake my head at the people that ask all these insane questions, expecting the person hosting the garage sale to answer all of them... instead of just going to the address and looking at the item themselves.
These are tiny towns. Often they are with in a mile or so of the address.
Or funny, they ask 1 or 2 days AFTER the sale if the [hot item that obviously would have sold immediately] is still available.
This morning I read yet another post filled with comment questions and I was so happy to see the original garage sale poster is NOT answering some of their stupid questions. They are probably BUSY holding their sale!!
"Do you have any cheap priced toys for kids ages 2, 4, 6 and 8?"
"Do you have any furniture that is less than 31" wide? I don't care how deep or tall, but could measure everything and tell me what you have that is less than 31" wide?"
"How much is that little table?"
"How much is that plastic flower vase?"
"How much for that rake?"
(I'm thinking to myself STOP ASKING AND JUST GO THERE AND SEE HOW MUCH IT IS! THEY ARE BUSY WITH THEIR SALE AND CAN'T ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS!"
"I can't get there to look at that item until next Tuesday, could you hold it for me?"
"I might want that red chair..." (Um ok? SO? Thanks for sharing.)
"What items do you have under $1?"
It's a stinking garage sale and things are dirt cheap. You live 1 mile away. Just go to the darn sale and look at the items yourself and stop asking stupid questions. And no, that perfect condition kids Jeep ride on toy marked $25 is already SOLD since the sale started yesterday so... stop asking.
.... it's just the coffee talking again.
And I hate garage sales.
I don't hold them.
I don't go to them.
