Sigh. I don't care anymore.

I sold three of these without any of these questions because people knew what they were...

I've been using eBay to sell extra car parts and it's so much easier than Facebook. I take the time to include part numbers and all models that the part fits in my listing and parts seem to sell within 1-2 days for what my full asking price on Facebook would have been. Paying the eBay service fees is well worth not having to talk or interact with idiots on Facebook marketplace.

I feel like Facebook marketplace is going the way of craigslist. Seems like nothing comes up in my search results but junk and ads now.

im wondering the same thing. i got on my dads account and searched for some of the items i have listed, and couldnt find anything. i wonder if theyre ghosting ads like craigslist did when you had a BUNCH of stuff listed.

I'm selling my 2010 Volvo C30.

This college kid gets right to the point which was a good first impression and probably a big reason why I've had so much patience. In the first message he asks when I'm available to show it. We agree on a rough window of time.

Window of time comes.

"Are you still planning on coming tonight?"

At least he actually said something?

"tmrw or Wedneday" comes and goes

👻

Thursday:

At this point, nobody has been interested in giving me a reasonable offer. Neither has this kid, but I've been at home a lot remodeling anyway, so if he wants to fuck around he isn't hurting me. I also found a truck that I really want to buy, so I have no problem trading this car in if he can't get his shit together in time.

Lo and behold! He actually shows up....

He doesn't ask any questions. He actually knows a thing or two about Volvos because he's helped his dad fix their S40 and XC90. He drives it, likes it and gives me a reasonable offer I can work with. We haggle a bit and come to an agreement. Then he says he doesn't have any money with him. He'll have to come tomorrow.

Knowing damn well when I come home from work every day, I get this bullshit on my lunch break.

Which was a lie. I'd love to go out and enjoy this gorgeous afternoon, but I'm not doing it for him! Fucking kids. He was trying to play me last night like he's broke despite wearing all designer clothes and fancy shoes. GTFO

I like to think he's just wasting his own time at this point, and he still may be. If the car isn't gone Sunday, it gets traded in on Monday.
