I have got to have a moan.
A couple of months ago we decided to sell our redundant Halogen Heaters, 2 of them for a tenner. No takers. So we shoved them back into storage.
Two days ago we decided to list them for FREE, under the FREEBIES section of the classifieds. I was immediately inundated with a flood of emails, well just a few, all asking if the heaters were FREE. At this point there was much gnashing of teeth. I replied to the first, telling them where we are and asking them to confirm a time, heard nothing all day.
So late last night I emailed the second interested person, they said they were still interested but were no longer in town, could I deliver. No. Move on to the next enquirer.
Again I told the person where we are, asked them to confirm a time. Silence. Nothing. Nada. Then eventually an email asking what time was best for me, I gave them a time. Silence again. I have no idea if they’re collecting them or not.
Dammit, we’re giving away 2 FREE Halogen Heaters, how hard can it be for someone, anyone, to turn up and collect them.
Even more gnashing of teeth.
If no one collects by the end of today they’ll go back in storage and damn well rot until they’re not usable by anyone.
End of moan.
Update 6.00pm – The heaters have finally been collected, the young man was most apologetic, actually shook my hand to say thank you, then sent me an email to say thank you again. All is well with the world. 🙂
