What kind of asshole-question is that???
« on: April 21, 2007, 05:32:03 PM »
So, In preparation for some life-changes, I have put my piano up for sale on craigslist.   It is a wonderful piano, weighted keys, lots of instruments, and it is electric.  I am selling it for $850, firm.

So, the following is a response from the advertisement:

Hi;

Not to insult you but since it is for my 6 year old daughter, let me know if you are willing to part with it for 250. Thanks
 
Amy


To which I replied:

No.  The price is $850 firm.  Additionally, I ask you to consider the following question very carefully:  If you give your six-year-old daughter a diamond ring, does the ring's value diminish simply because you gave it to a six year old?  Probably not.

Now, in light of this logic, please, tell me...  WHAT KIND OF ASSHOLE QUESTION IS: "since it is for my 6 year old daughter, let me know if you're willing to part with it for 250?"

FUCK YOU!

LOL j/k....some people just try to save a couple of bucks and will say anything to acheive it,,in spanish they say "tratando a cojerte de pendejo" (well puerto rican spanish anyways)....some people have no shame!!!!!!...dont sell it for less than what its worth...and if you can sell it for more than its worth then go for it hahaha....

i would answer back..."sorry i cant sell it for 250 because i need the money to pay for my 6 year old daughters life saving operation...sure you dont want to help me and give me 850??"

-josh

Ouch! That was a mean response. Yes, I understand it was a most feeble attempt to get you to lower the price...

You must have never worked in retail. People will try and come up with ANYTHING to get the price lowered. I'll admit, that's a pretty hefty amount to ask for off though! But they would have never found out if they didn't ask.....:)

MEAN response?  I have two words for you, my dear, and they're not "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"

I paid a lot for that piano.  The idea that someone would ask such an asshole question when the ad says $850 firm is probably 'meaner' at anyrate, this thread isn't about being nice, if you want to bitch about mean, go and whine about it in the appropriate thread with SDGirl.  http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=11061.0

Yeah, I may have been mean, but I earned it.

I play the piano... and I am very glad, fifteen years after the fact, that my mother forced me to take lessons.

However, at the time, it was an absolute living hell.

You're doing that little girl a huge favor by refusing to be Jewed down by her mom.

I started learning to play the piano at 5 (and horse riding too). Everytime I was crying and yelling that I would NOT continue, my mum just had to say "that fine, dear, i'll get rid of the piano tomorrow then". I studied for 15 years.. there was NO WAY I was going to live without a piano in my life. I still have the one she offered me for my 18th bday. Needs tuning  :)

I started learning to play the piano at the age of 20.  I find that it really helps me through spells of anxiety.
