'I would rather not make the trip only to find out that it has been sold': Internet divided over second-hand sale etiquette

'I would rather not make the trip only to find out that it has been sold': Internet divided over second-hand sale etiquette

This person is completely confused after a second-hand sale gone wrong. I'm on this person's side… but commenters agree with the seller. Buying second-hand items is a great way to save money and recycle. These days, it's a great way to get reliable clothing, since clothes from past decades last longer than the current brands of fast fashion. For people who are just getting started in their first apartments, it's a great way to get some nice furniture at a cheap price. And others use it to spruc…

Entitled dude messages seller wanting a free motorcycle, won't take no for an answer: 'I can file a lawsuit'

When we were kids, bratty kids on the playground would claim that their dad, uncle, or other random family member worked for Nintendo. They'd always be spouting some bogus insider information or rumors as if they were undeniable facts, all in the name of getting much-needed attention and clout. These were the days when the internet was just getting started, so it was never really possible to prove their audacious claims to be false, but there certainly were some heated 'uh-uh's' and 'yeah-huh's…

'You could probably get the yarn for a LOT less': Customer advises blanket creator to lower prices and respond to messages faster

Some crafty folks enjoy selling their creations, but their customers seem to feel entitled to every step of the process. In the social media era, it's never been easier to feel closer to your favorite artist. The common adage is that people are attracted to the process of creating art, and lots of social media savvy creators are now showing their processes publically. This especially draws attention if your artwork involves dripping lots of paint down a canvas or frosting a cake at 5x speed. Th…

'Spiderman 3: Beans Edition': 20+ Oddball objects up for sale

Save the planet by buying all your cursed objects secondhand. Reduce, reuse, recycle, revenant. While I've never experienced a haunting, I want to believe in ghosts. I'm afraid if I don't believe in spirits, they'll try to prove me wrong. I've watched enough horror movies to have some hubris about these things. If my home ever does become haunted, I might not ever know, because my earbuds block out noise pretty well. A ghost would have to start slamming doors or knocking over belongings to get…

Update: 'Buyer claims to never have received order, but posed on social media with item': Jewelry seller confronts lying influencer

This seller is way too smart to be fooled by this influencer's tricks. Running a small business seems both incredibly rewarding, and also really difficult. They're often run by just one or two people who handle everything from listing the order online , to promoting the product on social media, to packing and shipping the product, to talking with customers who need assistance. On top of all of it, some people will still go out of their way to try and fool these sellers. This influencer did exac…

AITA: 'He found out when he was served an eviction notice': Immature brother expects family freebies after avoiding paying rent to his brother for months, older sibling sells the house in retaliation, family drama ensues

There's a reason that people wear stupid masks to cover their identity when they accept lottery winnings on public broadcast. It's simple– they don't want their family knowing that they're overnight billionaires. For some reason, people think that they're entitled to a portion of any family member's financial success just because you're related.

Twitter Thread: The Gaudiest Castle For Sale In Connecticut

Rebecca Makkai did a deep dive into an amazingly over-the-top castle built by the kin of a steel tycoon in 2010. As we all know, wealth hardly ever really translates to taste, and it all looks like a 3rd grader's idea of luxury. Anyway it's for sale if anyone has the scratch for it. The dude selling it seems like a bit of a prickly customer, though. For another wonderful listing, here's the Tumblr Thread on the 70s house that looks like carpeted geometry salad.
