I posted a wood chipper and a bedroom furniture set on Craigslist for my grandmother. Within an hour, I had FOUR spam text messages in broken English. All going on about shipping and PayPal and certified checks and how they want the item but I need to send a check or something like that.

Seriously? What do these people do with their lives? They could at least come up with a different script that isn’t immediately recognizable.

Sigh. I also posted the items on my local Facebook marketplace, and I received some interest but literally every person has backed out.


My papaw even tried the old school way (a newspaper ad). Of course that didn’t work.

Selling stuff is a huge pain in the ass nowadays.

Have a Toronado for your time.
