Just got back from driving 300+ miles round-trip involving a failed Craigslist sale. It was my item for sale. I'd listed it as "$xxx firm" and exchanged emails with the buyer confirming that. Not only did I not request any gas money for the "delivery", I'd gone out of my way to accomodate his schedule.
Got to the buyer's place and he tried to renegotiate immediately, at a 20% lower price than I'd listed. I had printed out all our emails, as is my normal way of ensuring my memory is "correct". Showed him his own words and he just grins and says, "Well, what do you want to do now? $xxx is my offer" (again, the same lowball offer).
It was all I could do not to punch him in the face, something I haven't done to anyone in nearly 35 years.
I need a drink - another thing I havent done in 30 years.
