Pet Peeve #5,873

July 19, 2009

When you put something for sale on craigslist, explicitly state “e-mail contact preferred”, and you get an e-mail to the effect of:

“I’m interested in the item you’re selling. Call me at…”

I don’t want to call you. I don’t want to talk to you on the phone. I want to arrange a time and place for you to pick it up, and that information is easily relayed over e-mail. You can even copy and paste right into Google Maps.

A corallary – asking if I will take less than half what I’m asking. No, I won’t. Asshats.
