I have been guilty myself of responding at late or early hours but my situation and thought is.. situation/ I get cramps and constant pain wake up on and off thru the night ..I get on my sites and write a response and thinking ...when they wake up for the day they will check and then respond back at their convenience...it's not out of inconsideration..or anything else ..I try to redirect my attention off the pain until I can fall back to sleep ..just a different point of view ..hope it may help..
First off I'd like to say that yes people wanting to make late night transactions doesn't automatically make them tweekers or criminals that's a nasty stereotype and to lump everyone into it is wrong because I have found people have a variety of reasons for wanting to make purchase late. Just the other day I had a woman message me around 10pm wanting to purchase a small bench I made. I asked when she wanted to pick it up and she asked if she could after she got off work at midnight. Because she lived 35 miles away and would be easier to pick up on way home. I said yes and it was fine. Then there are people who are just afraid that if they don't pick up an item right away then the seller might sell it to someone else before they meet. I get tat because that sort of thing happens a lot around here. Sellers setting up a meet with a buyer only to not show or message saying the sold it to so!done else. Don't get me wrong there are creeps out there but I don't think its fair to label all people who are night owls as druggies or criminals 😀👍
@Frankiej Yeah, this guy sounds sketchy as all get out and I'm glad you declined to buy from him. There are other fish (and digital cameras) in the sea.
In more general terms, I can't agree with a strict "don't meet anyone after dark" rule, because here in the Pacific NW, "after dark" on December 21 is 4:30 in the afternoon. Flip side of the same coin, there are some people I wouldn't want to meet in the full daylight of 9:30 at night on June 21.
I'm another night owl/insomniac, and I nearly sent a seller an inquiry* at 4:00 this morning; but stopped myself because I was afraid I'd come off like a weirdo. And while I might message you at 4:00 am, I would never ask you to meet me in the middle of the night.
(*Yes, your item is "large," but is it 8 inches large or 18 inches? I need one that's 12".)
