Regarding the no-shows. It might help by mentioning in your offer post that serious enquiries only and there is no second chance if you do not pick up the first time, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Oh, that would never, never work for me! The whole point is so that I can get rid of stuff without having to leave the house
I think my problem is I'm too much of a softie. I know how many times things come up for me, so I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. I guess I've really only one actual never-show. The others all just needed an extra day, and with two little ones at home, plus my work schedule, I am overly sympathetic.
Now, the woman with the phone calls, that was a different story. I should have known better, I went against my instincts on that one. She's the woman who responded about a bunch of baby stuff I listed this past summer, and instead of responding to my query about when she would pick up, she just sent her daughter over with all her kids. So here I am, in my pajamas, unshowered, working, while my mom is upstairs with the girls. The stuff isn't even all together yet, and they come knocking on the door. Then the littlest one asks to use the bathroom, and all of a sudden they ALL need to use the bathroom, then they want to start wandering around my house. After they left, I found pee all over my toilet and floor. So yeah, I should have known better on that one!
