We have been selling a heap of DDs old things through Gumtree.
It's been great. No problems.
The last item I had left was a Highchair.
We paid $120 for it, it reclines, the hight adjusts, has wheels, removable tray and also converts to a chair when bub is bigger.
We only used for or about 3 months so it's in excellent condition.
It still has its box. We just want the thing GONE. Right now I'm willing to give it away!
We had $40 on it.
On saturday One of my sisters friends said she wanted it but only for $20.
My husband is sick of it taking up space and just told me to sell for the $20 so I agreed..
This happened on Saturday.
I get told after the agreed $20 this lady can't come and get it until Thursday (today) because she has to wait until pay day.
No problems, that's fine, I just asked that on Thursday she could be here at 9am because i had a few things planed.
Well it's now 1:00pm and she hasn't shown up, So she is 4 hours late.
I have tried calling my sister because this friend isn't answering her phone and my sister isn't answering hers(no surprise she never does)
At this point I'm pretty p!ssed off!
I had a play date with some friends and their children this morning at 10:00am and had to cancel because I was waiting and giving this lady some extra time... I have plans to go out for lunch with my mum at 1:30, I also have plans to go to the Dr at 3:30.
I KNOW if I go out she will rock up and no one will be home.. And my sister will cause a fuss and this friend will get her knickers in a knot.. It's the kind of people they are.. But at the same time... WTF!
I have things to do.. I agreed to sell the frikin Highchair to you for 1/2 the original price, agreed to hold it here and take it off Gumtree until today..
you are either stuffing me around with my time or not coming.
Would it be rude for me to just go to lunch and if she rocks up well tough?
I mean I did tell her 9am because I had things to do!
when selling things should I just expect lateness?
And if she doesn't come and get the high chair today would it be rude of me to sell it to someone else?
At what point can I say "Nope I have waited long enough, not waiting around any more someone else can have it?"
Is there an unspoken code that I'm not aware of when it comes to selling second hand things to family friends!?
