Criagslist....it's killing me!!! aaahhh!!!

So I always look in the freebie section and right now there's a hutch and a dresser FOR FREE. My husband is at work and I can't go along nor have a car to pick them up with....it's KILLING ME that I can't go pick these items up right now! Ugh!

Do you think I should call and ask them to hold it? Do you think they would??? DH won't be home til about 10:30 tonight though.....

  • I think that it will not hurt to just ask them to hold it for you. All they can say is yes or no. Jist think positive.

  • No one on craigslist is going to hold anything. I was literally driving an hour for a puppy and the girl gave it to someone else right before I got there! Just rude. Knew I was on my way, just spoke to her! It's probably not what you think it is anyway. It never is. Lol lol

  • Ivebeen on the other end as well! I was selling atv for dirt cheap and was overwhelmed with emails requesting to hold it! But, maybe you'll get lucky! I figure with craigslist if it's meant to happen it will. :)

  • It never hurt to ask but know it's first come first serve alot of times because people want to get rid of that stuff despite ! I am sorry to here that Musicmom80 especially if u came all that way. I wish it was some type of code of promise with people, but I guess with some but not most, because it business :(
