    So I posted that I was looking for a playpen and a stroller.

    I got an email from a lady saying that she had a stroller, and I liked it. I have to drive 45 minutes out of my way, and because my best friend lives near there I said I would come pick it up on Friday at 1. Asked this lady to call me if 1 pm was ok. No call. I emailed her on Friday saying that I would be later picking it up due to an appointment we had and if I could pick it up later than 1 p.m. that day. Asked her to call me.

    Went all the way to near where she lived to visit my friend but since I didn't get a call, I don't go pick up the stroller. I get home and she had emailed me that if she wasn't home she'd leave it on the porch. Um, I was already out that way.

    So I then emailed her to say could I pick it up on Monday. No email back.

    Also, someone emailed me saying they had a playpen. Asked when and where I could pick it up and to call me...no response.

    Perhaps it's better to pay something then get something for free that doesn't end up happening. LOL

    Maybe they gave it to someone else? Sometimes I don't answer everyone on Kijiji that messages me, but if I agree to give it to someone I will stick to the arrangements.

    It's just annoying when people leave up their ads forever and don't message you back.. makes it difficult to buy things, lol

    I am guilty of that....:blush:
    I keep having people message me about my OH's xbox 360 that I listed :rofl: but I haven't replied to anyone. I am horrible.

    I didn't know it bothered people. :rofl: I will go delete some.
