I appreciate this advice I have never thought about doing that! Knowing me it’ll take some time to put my foot down but I’m getting extremely frustrated with people wasting my time when I need to try to keep a roof over our heads and I’m hanging on by a thread and people wanna bull$!*t all week about something they have no intention on ever buying. It gets our hopes up and then let down🙃 anyway, great advice and post thank u!

I feel like people get bored or something and instead of using their phone to play solitaire or something to be productive they decide that they want to waste someone’s time. I don’t know about you but I feel like everyone of these people come to my page. I’m unsure why I always have interacting with people who don’t show up or lowball me to begin with and then hit me again upon closing the deal with can you please just take ... I mean come on I’m selling my things to try to keep my apartment because emergencies have me almost homeless, so please have common courtesy and don’t rob me if the little me and my kids are trying to part with to survive!! I work, care for my kids, one disabled and I’m the only one everyone is counting on to keep our heads above water, but for some reason I always answer the low ballers and cheapskates with “sure that’s fine” or “why not”, though I need the money and something is better than nothing I can’t help but feel bad and I’m pretty sure the reason I do this is because I’m so tired of going back and forth with people an out something when 8 out of 10 people are seriously considering and out of the two that are serious one may show up half the time! Sorry I’m just frustrated at how some people don’t know how to be fair and respectful of people’s needs and more importantly time! Basic common courtesy would be a start! Anyways, I have a new way of dealing with this problem. I prevent being strung along by setting a time limit the day we start the conversation. It always starts with a low all offer and I come back with.... something we agree on anyway and then I say “but only if you come by this time..” then after that time I no longer answer that person. Helps with me being a people pleaser and having people make me wait around all day and waste my time. 😬🤪🤔
