Dan and I want to buy a rocking chair. One of those simple decisions that you make, act on and accomplish. Or so we thought.
One night last week, we came up with an idea. A perfect idea. We’d check on usedottawa.com to find ourselves a used, old fashioned, wood rocker to buy. I was amazed. There were quite a few available, some with an asking price above what I’d pay for an old fashioned wood rocker, but some were crazy reasonable. We made two offers and one was accepted. It was too easy.
Of course it was. After a plan to pick up the rocker in Orleans last weekend went bust (we couldn’t find a time when we were both available to meet), we made plans to make the drive out this weekend and pick it up. That is until this morning when I received this email:
Good Morning Shannen,
Bad news. My husband was not aware of our email exchanges and sold the chair to a neighbour yesterday. I’m very sorry but hope you find another.
Ummmmm…Thanks Christine. What part of “yes it’s still available” was she unclear about? Wouldn’t you think that would be something you’d discuss with the other person selling the item?
Anyway, no point in getting irritated with the ‘sell-challenged’ lady in Orleans…won’t do me much good as her neighbour rocks herself to sleep in my chair. Boo. I hope it wasn’t as mint as they claimed in their ad.
Back to the drawing board.
Jerk number 2 sold our rocker. Even though we tried to call him for pick up last night and he didn’t answer., which was probably because he was SELLING OUR ROCKER TO SOMEONE ELSE! Grrrrr.
So, so, so annoyed. I’m boycotting usedottawa.com. Jerks.
