I love it because you get money for what you don't need anymore. I hate it because the people are usually idiots... in this case, it's nearly a love, because this person is hilarious. Here's my conversation so far with a potential buyer for my 50D...
Buyer is in bold, I'm in normal. This is all via text.
HI do u still have d Canon 50DD?
Yes, I do
Hw much did u sell it?!
I've lowered the price to 720.
Oh where u at though?!
Oh ur kinda far
Where do you live? I can ship it if it's that far away.
I'm frum don mills...
That isn't very far at all. I go to school in Toronto, at York University. We can meet up anywhere on the subway if you'd like. I don't go back to school until January though.
Oh okay dats a gud idea
So are you interested in buying it? We can meet up in the first week of January
Oh okay I'm gna ask my husbnd first then ill get back to u, im intersted though
Ok Cool. Let me know.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm happy to have a buyer for my camera. I'm not picky about who it is either. But this woman (who I REALLY didn't think was a woman for the first while) is about as dumb as a pile of bricks. For those that don't know, Don Mills is one of the nicest areas of Toronto, so she probably isn't poor like her horrendous english makes her seem. Just strange she talks that way and wants to buy a camera if you ask me.
So, M&A, should I sell my camera to the mysterious stupid texter? Not really a question, if she puts up the money I'm gonna do it regardless.
