I'm really puzzled by the offers I get when I sell stuff on Craigslist. A guy just offered me half of what I was asking for an item, difference is $600 and then says "would you take $600 if I pay cash?" I'm asking $1200, original sale price was $2400. It's in excellent and probably mint condition. But it's the "cash" that has me flabbergasted. Do these people think I'm taking a check from them? Do they think I have my own personal credit card charging system? Do people today take checks from complete strangers in these situations? If someone pays "cash" does that automatically give them the clearance to insult the seller by offering half of a very reasonable asking price? Public Service Announcement to those who offer "cash" prices on Craigslist. My guess is the vast majority of people selling anything on Craigslist assumes you'll be paying in cash. In fact, my guess is 99 percent or more will insist you pay in cash. Sorry, I'm working on my taxes right now, so I'm a bit grumpy and then this offer came through. Just had to rant. I'll get back to finding out how much the government will screw me instead.
