Default Selling Bikes on Craigslist

One of the problems with Craigslist is that there is so many morons on it. Who would ask you about a part or a bike and say that they are going to come right over and get it? You sit around waiting for them and they never turn up and do not email you or return any emails asking if they changed their minds?

Girlfriend's favorite demurral phrase is, "Yes, dear. Just
walk down to the corner and wait for me."

When you calculate your dollars-per-hour take on your bike selling
enterprise, don't forget to include the wasted waiting time under "hours."

In case you're too stupid to think - I am salaried so I am not paid by the hour. And since I can call you stupid while I'm waiting I get a double return.

You are salaried? You mean that unemployment payments are considered a
salary these days?

You're "salaried" in the "buy Chinese parts and used frames and try to
sell them on Craigslist" business?

HA HA HA HA HA! :-)

Tell me Frank, what does selling things have to do with what I'm paid?

Isn't that the purpose of selling something? To get paid? Is this another trick question?

I am paid by Social Security and some stock dividends each month. Selling bikes or parts is helping my fellow man because I have never made a penny over the cost of these things ever.

I can believe the part about never making a penny over cost. You've
complained many times about people making low offers or otherwise not
properly valuing the bikes you throw together.

It seems your fellow men don't really want the sort of help you're
attempting to give. Perhaps it's time to move on to other endeavors.
