Well, obviously, since I am on the computer this morning and NOT out in the garage running my Toy Sale you can guess that the said Toy Sale is NOT happening.
Lots of crap is aligning around here that has just made it not possible to have this Sale.
And I've been feeling quite depressed all week because of this.
I don't do well under stress anymore and things around here have been stressing me out a LOT!
Hubs reminded me, right in the middle of my panicked "I've got to get this up and running but nothing is working out right" state that we don't NEED the money this Toy Sale might bring in. And I had my doubts that we'd make much anyway.
So I said "screw it!" and pulled the plug on the sale idea on Wednesday and said haul it all off to charity.
Besides, we NEED the tax write-off more to get us over the standard deduction amount so it pays to itemize instead of taking the standarad deduction for our filing status.
One of the big drawbacks of being middle class and having a paid off house is that it's difficult to have enough deductions to itemize(unless you live somewhere the property taxes are Very high and/or you have out of pocket medical or employee costs)without that mortgage interest deduction.
Then on Friday I reconsidered hauling it ALL off to charity and thought I'd attempt to recoup some cash by selling some of the toys on a local online sale site.
This is where I'll interject my post title....somebody just shoot me in the head next time!!!
I posted about 30 items yesterday with really low prices.
Now I am in the midst of dealing with people wanting things and having to arrange pick-up/drop-off days/dates/times.
There goes my weekend.....
And one of the many fun perks of dealing with people locally is dealing with the crazies.
For example...I posted my items with prices. As things are spoken for, I repost an updated list of what is left. So everybody can see what is still for sale. Sounds sensible, right?
I had a post of 12 dolls. I sold 10 of the dolls so I updated and reposted that 2 of the dolls were the only ones still available. This email was posted with the original email copied below it.
This morning, I get an email reply on that repost that says this.....
"Wanted other things. TY."
So what the hell is this person saying?
1. Did they want the other dolls that I sold already, but felt the need to email me and tell me they wanted what I sold already and don't want the ones still available? If so, why do I freaking care??!!
2. Do they want the things that are left? Or do they want "other things" that I am not selling and I'm suppose to be clairvoyant and KNOW what they want? In either case, why do I freaking care?
I also had 2 people ask for dolls that were already sold....they sent their emails as replies on the post where I said that these dolls were sold already!!
Give it a minute to let that one sink in......
After today, I am so DONE with this......seriously.
Take this crap out of my house before I change my mind again.lol
