This picture doesn’t actually scream out “WE ARE LEATHER CHESTERFIELD SOFAS”, right?
This picture was featured in the classified ads of the local paper yesterday – a bit smaller, resolution nothing to write home about, but clearly fabric.
And not a mention of “Leder” in the ad.
Chap calls up, likes the price, asks me to hold them until 3, he’s on his way.
“Oh” he says ” I thought they were leather. Never mind, I’ll take them anyway, here’s the money if you could give me a receipt, I’ll be round tomorrow with a trailer”
Get a call this morning, wife – having looked at the picture – doesn’t like the look of ’em, can he have his money back, please. €50 for my troubles.
(And this guy isn’t your typical eBay idiot – he runs a guest house and restaurant and breeds Camargue horses)
Up fronts eBay Idiot.
He’s just bought my old iMac 27″ for close to €600.
“Dear Sir” he writes “Would you please absorb the shipping costs, I’m financially stretched?”
The shipping costs aren’t even 3% of the selling price…
“Sorry” I write back “I’m financially stretched, too. Otherwise I wouldn’t be selling it…”
