    Okay, so I have this HUGE Dogloo dog house, (it might be the biggest one there is) that my husband picked up for free from a job site, that I have had listed on craigslist.
    One couple stopped to look at it, said they would be back the next day with a truck to pick it up......that was a week and a half ago.
    4 others have emailed, set up times to stop by, then I have NEVER heard from them again!

    I don't care at all if they decide to pass on the dog house, but is an email, telling me so too much to ask?
    I wait for these people to show up, sometimes call my husband home, because I am hesitant to have them come to my home with just my daughter and myself home, and they never show, and won't return my emails...... [​IMG]

    I have had a few books and a potty seat listed, that the SAME thing has happened with. HUMPF!

    Please......I beg of some other poor woman the frustration......if you set up a time to meet someone on craigslist......PLEASE, either keep the appointment, or tell the poor person you are not coming........

    (thanks for letting me rant [​IMG] )

    I am giving up on craigslist, and just having a yard sale this weekend. If you live in McMinnville Oregon, and want to buy a HUGE dog house ( or TONS of other stuff) pm me and I'll give you the address.

    WOW! I feel better. Thanks guys!

    Now I'm upset! I want a huge doghouse but there's No Way I could ever go get it. Wish I was closer, that thing would've been gone long ago. I can never find a big enough doghouse...

    I forgot to mention that I've had the same problem for getting chickens. I wanted a hen and one guy was like "I have the perfect match" then when I called him up he only wanted to trade for another hen I was like "I Have Roosters That's Why I Want A Hen! It said It in the Ad Like 4 Times! I HAVE ROOSTERS THAT NEED HENS, I DON'T HAVE HENS!!!!!" I haven't gotten any responces since and it's been like 2 months? I keep putting up new ads...

    I've had similar issues! I once put up an add for koi or goldfish that needed to be rehomed because I had a barrel pond looking for some occupants. I got a response from a lady in the next town over who said she had a one eyed white koi that was too big for his tank. I said I would be glad to take him and we even set up a date and time for me to meet here to pick him up. I gave her my cell number and told her to call me when she was leaving for the meeting spot. Well, never got a phone call, e-mail, or anything. I was just glad that I had not gone out of my way because I would have been pretty mad if I did!

    I ended up getting two fish from someone else through a friend...NOT from craigslist. I don't really post too often on there anymore.

    I've had surprisingly good luck with people showing up. Only had one woman not show -- 2 times. Oh well, their loss. Sorry, you are having such crummy luck with people not showing.
