Angry Pretty sick and Tired of Craigslist and the people.

As u know i deal alot on craigslist... Mainly Car audio. Things used to go so smoothly, made good money and kept upgrading big time!

Now i make a great deal.. the other person is pumped also, then right before we r supposed to meet up to they cancel on me.. I am a impatient person, and when it comes to car audio i dont mess around. So i tend to get pretty pissed.

TODAY! I was supposed to meet a guy at my work when i got out, he contacted me and said he had a PPI DCX1500.1 amp and wanted to trade it for a nice set of subs and a descent amp. So i was excited! I told him last night that people have been shiting on my alot and ill only deal with him if its a sure thing, he said definatly, then asked if my work was hiring, i said ya, he asked for a app, i got him one. Anyhow, less than an hour before we were suppost to trade he text and says he changed his mind cause he is gonna sell it instead. I FLIPPED! I think im done with it all

I cant change people, places, or things and that pisses me off. lol.
to hell with it all, all u inconsiderate ignorant people... (not u guys, the people that contact me, then **** on me at the last minute)

If other people can get to me enough were i mess up a bunch of stuff at work, leave early, bust my knuckles up punching ****, i need to retire.

Thanks for listening to me rant and rave

I always expect the worst. People don't show up, or sell something out from under you. I lost two tablet PCs because we had a sale, and before I could get over there, they just stopped replying. Then come back with it'* sold. Ahh, I thought it was sold to me.

Got stuck with a broke ps3. Dude said it sometimes over heated...turns out it wouldn't even stay on and needed a new board, I call him and he says he can only give me a 3rd back since he spent the rest already. I wound up parting it and making my money back on ebay but the whole thing pisses me off though.

( talk about a fruedian slip I just had to correct the sentence "the whole thong pisses me off" I need to go to bed lol)

I haven't had to deal with that, but I have had to deal with the spam aspect of it. To get around it, I mentioned in the ad that any response must directly mention the item, and that any spam, 3rd party services, etc are not welcome. What do I get? A crap load of spam directly referencing the item I posted.

I cant stand craigslist. I was trying to sell an 87 Fiero that i did up. i have thousands of dollars into it and i priced it up at $4000 firm and no trades unless it was something high preformance or muscle. now only am i getting offers way below my firm asking price but i have these idiots trying to trade me a stock hyundai elantra trying to call it a preformance car and anothger one trying to pass a ford escort off as a muscle car... i cant stand craigslist anymore.
