I always post the most relevant information: make, model, age, condition, cross streets, pickup conditions, etc.
And often I get questions for info that is already there. Now I know that many people have a very short attention span these days but can't they even ready 6 short lines of easy to understand text?
On top of that: I always start the description with: Please read the whole post before you respond.
I had people denying categorically that the info was in the post while I was looking at it from my end. I even got into an argument with someone who flat out called me a liar.
The problem lies in the fact that many of them don't see, or don't bother to click on: Read more...
It seems that they are not familiar with it.
Is this just ignorance and/or lack of attention that we have to accept as a general problem or is there a way to make it more pronounced so people can't miss it?
I fear the worst. I also post on Craigslist saying: Email only, DO NOT ask me to call or text.
This week alone I had 6 people emailing me saying: Here is my phone #, call me.
I experience the same issues, I’m simply tired of people asking “Hi, is this available?”, I then take time out of my busy day to respond right away because it’s the right thing to do, only to never get a response back. So so tired of people wasting my time. Then I get those who take 3 days to respond to each of my responses. Very aggravating.
