Just had a little old lady come look at my sofas for sale



First of all, I received many a humorous voicemail in this process. She and her daughter came by to look at the sofas and decided they wanted them but have no truck and, what became apparent to me, no males to assist them. It looks like I'll likely have to be calling a friend with a truck and we'll have to do the moving for them.

Definitely not something I would have considered doing for someone buying these before but damn it, when you have a nice little old lady in your apartment with no way to move any furniture for her new place it becomes exceedingly difficult to not offer to help. So word to the wise, never let little old ladies into your home or you will find yourselves compelled to labor for them.

She had this planned from the start. Scheming old ladies.

Nah. The OT wouldn't be interested. They were black.

I have to say, she most likely did, because she has known all along that they had no truck and no people to move it.

She played her old lady card well, because in spite of knowing that, I still feel obliged to help her out.

I'm sure you can trust them to pay you later on after you've moved the furniture too...

How about make them hire some movers to move it? If you have time and its not an inconvenience to you or whoever you get to help move then go for it, and hopefully they end up returning the favor to someone else somewhere, otherwise make them find their own movers.

i hope i'm not going to have to the same shite today. i put about 100 bricks and an old wheelbarrow on craigslist and its a lady coming to get them.

i really, really don't want to help her load these things up, so i'm hoping she has a guy with her.

Yeah, good call on that. Will be requiring the money up front.

I'm selling the couches for $50. I'm pretty sure they don't have much money. But the fact that I'm selling them for just $50 also makes it more of a pain in my arse to help them move it across town because then I have to inconvenience a friend and throw him some money as well. Also, I'd have to do it after work on a weekday.

I don't know. It feels like an ethical conundrum.
