Of buyer-seller conversations

Small tip for people who want to sell their old things online: be ready and prepared for lots of headaches and (above all) to deal with heaps of penniless timewasters who think that “used” equals dirty/half-broken junk that can be bought paying cents instead of dollars; a good example of this is my last chat with a possible buyer.
The discussed item has a starting price of $200 - I I use dollars for readers’ convenience, but the prices were in euros (which means a bit higher).

Buyer ::: Hi, I’m very interested. Is item still available?
Seller (Me) ::: Sure. Price starts at $200, but it’s slightly negotiable.
Buyer ::: Can you do $120? I can pick up the item on my way back from my business trip.
Seller (Me) ::: No, sorry. Item is immaculate and last model, new is $260.
Buyer ::: What about $130?
Seller (Me) ::: No, sorry. The absolute lowest I can do is $165. It’s less than I usually ask (my usual final price is $180), I gave you a further tiny discount because of your detour to pick it up.

No peep. The guy replies a few hours later....yet again trying to lower the price, even after I told him very clearly I wouldn’t go below $165.

Buyer ::: Can you do $150?
Seller (Me) ::: No. I already gave you a larger discount than I usually give to others, and considering the items’ conditions I cannot do less than $165.

Radio silence again, lasting to the following day. Since I heard nothing by dinner time, I messaged him.

Seller (Me) ::: Since I haven’t heard nothing, I’m closing the negotiation and unblocking the item. Sorry we weren’t able to close the deal.
Buyer ::: I’m sorry too. I found another seller who’s giving me a lower price. Thank you.

Basically the timewaster pretended to be very interested only until he thought he could get me to go down to the price he wanted, vanishing when he realized that wasn’t gonna happen and then bailing out for good with a very classic excuse - I’ve heard the “found another seller giving me a lower price” dozens of times, it’s classic BS to push a seller to lower the price further (if he really found a lower price offer, it’s because it’s not the last model) - when I got back to him to follow up on the “super interest” he had claimed (read *faked) to have....what a loser. LMFAO

Sorry for the long post, but I needed to share this because people like him deserve to have others making fun of their ridiculous attempts at buying things without having the required money.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO

Of (not so) temporary insanity

I’ve always been a bit crazy...probably more than a bit, to be honest. LOL But what I think what I did this month tops everything else crazy I’ve ever done; but let me share the details and explain.

For the past year I’ve been considering testing out the services of a new mobile provider that broke onto my country’s market a couple of years ago, but I’ve always dropped that idea because my current provider is excellent and I’ve always been extremely happy with it.
I’ve also been thinking about getting a secondary phone and above all number to deal with the swamp of messages from scammers (because of the stuff I’m selling online) coming to main phone and above all to keep the latter hidden. And since I’m kinda fed up with Android phones, I’ve been looking at iPhones as secondary device.
Anway. Last Sunday I was on the aforementioned mobile provider’s site and decided to stop procrastinating, so I finally bit the bullet...and got myself a new phone number and contract; right now I’m waiting for their SIM card to arrive (but it should be here in a few days) so that I can activate and use it. And since I don’t want to use the SIM card on my main phone, I decided to buy an iPhone on Amazon; my idea was to get an iPhone XR 64GB (the model I had been looking at as secondary phone) but, again because I’m crazy, I ended up getting an iPhone 11 128GB (which is about to be shipped to me) - Amazon was having a huge deal on it, but I still paid it around $880 (more precisely 749 Euros)...I paid 880 bucks for a secondary device....O. M. G. o_o
If that ain’t insane, I don’t know what is. What’s it’s even crazier is, if I have to be completely honest with myself, that in truth I got the iPhone mainly because I wanted it to play around with iOS 14 widget....O. M. F. G. LMFAO

Sorry for the craziness-infused post, but I couldn’t keep this down any longer and had to share it. Hopefully you found it at least a little bit funny.
See you on next entry; many cheers. XOXO
