Buying stuff on Facebook, when you're trying to arrange payment and time to pick it up - and half of the lot gets sold out from under you. =_=

Don't think folks want to pay $169.97 for a 2 lb. block of vintage extra-sharp cheddar.

Or they can order from Amazon.com and get a 2 lb. block of medium cheddar for $25.37 + $79.96 shipping.

Well until border crossing is allowed it’s only game happening.

I guess someone could make a killing by meeting at Peace Arch park with 10 lbs brick. Oops customs officers [icon_lol2.gif]

People who misrepresent their items for sale. IF you had your art work framed and matted, you KNEW it was a print. Don't advertise it on facebook as an "original watercolour." Don't be a jerk in otherwords.
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Delivery companies who tell you one thing and then don't do it. Talked to a rep on Thursday and they who promised there would be 2 drivers delivering the kitchen island on Monday or Tuesday and I'd get a call the day before. Thing weighs 135 lbs. and no way could I move it into the house. Knock on the door yesterday and there's the driver saying my delivery was there. Oh yeah, on the driveway at the bottom of the stairs. Told him there was supposed to be 2 people who would take it into the house for me. He said there were no notes on the deivery ship but reluctanty walked it up the steps, across the deck and just inside the door. Great, now I have to walk it across the floor so it's not blocking the door.

Another delivery company had my parcel out for delivery at 9:01am on Friday. Guess he/she decided to start their weekend early - parcel was marked "Delivery rescheduled for the next business day" at 2:39pm. Hopefully they get their act together and it's here today.

So why can I watch a show on TV that every few words is a swear word but can't even post certain letter combinations on Castanet without being "Bleeped"?

She is an awesome negotiator. I just sit back and tell the Sales Manager to talk to her.

She dealt with car dealerships for years when she worked at the Bank so she knows how they operate.
