Why do people write this when selling stuff, do they come along and read it then think “ooh I better not then”
Post your best time wasters. One time I was selling a guitar and I had a guy really enthusiastically message back and forth about it. Absolutely mint fender Strat, set up perfect. I agreed for him to come round and have a quick blast on the guitar. He turns up with his full amp and pedal board etc and his two kids. I thought okay no big, helped him carry the amp and stuff upstairs into my studio. The guy sets up and starts jamming.
I sat and watched not wanting to leave a stranger and kids in my studio alone. I was desperate to sell the guitar at the time so I didn’t complain. He spent a full hour playing loving it. then come the end of the hour when his kids look bored dead he starts fiddling with the guitar then said “I’ll have a think about it” . I felt like I’d been held musical hostage for a gig I didn’t want to go to. I can’t tell you how fucking pissed I was and I couldn’t really kick off with two small kids there. I closed the door on him without a goodbye, I was furious. my missus was in disbelief that it hadn’t sold, she found it a lot funnier than I did. From now on people get to test on the front garden, never again
