I finally managed to seal the deal on my two phones for sale (both were delivered into the buyers’ hands day before yesterday YAYY!!), but to do that I had to go through some specimens of humanity I'd like to never meet again in multiple existences....the last of them being the worst.
The guy contacted me about the costlier phone; after we sealed the deal (setting up the delivery meeting and everything), he started sending me WhatsApp vocal messages - 2-3 of them each day. At first he asked me help on how to do some tasks on the phone (googling them would’ve been much faster), but then the messages became pretty random and he started talking and generally addressing me as if we were long-time friends. That gave me strong “unease” vibes, so I cancelled the sale with an excuse....and it turns out my gut was right: in his last message the guy talked about meeting and having lunch together as if, again, we were close friends (and not two strangers about to meet once and for like 5 minutes)....WTF!?
That really creeped me out. That guy is not a friend. He’s not even an acquaintance; he and I never even met in person, we just talked on the phone once and chatted on WhatsApp - not for long and only to finalize the delivery of a phone I was about to sell him - and that is sure as he*l not enough to become friends. So I blocked him on WhatsApp....and I hope he will not call again, as I don't want to be rude - even if he creeped the fu*k out of me.
Sorry for the mini-rant, but I really need to share this in order to get it out of my chest.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO
