    Department managers who don't respond to emails. I have been without work for a week now and have heard nothing from my manager about finding work for me. Had to send him another email today to try and figure out the next step.

    This is an ad I have up right now. I'm going to start wording all my ads like this.

    On the other hand, I've gotten zero interest in it so maybe people's feelings are hurt.
    About half of the sellers I message never reply back... is it for sale? is it sold? I dunno. But I have resorted to putting zero effort into an initial message. What should someone say instead of the default is this available? Is this real? Are you real? not sure that would go over any better.

    Perhaps “I would like to purchase your object, when and where would this be possible? Emt work?”

    I dunno... but I ignore like 100% of stupid inquiries... especially sight unseen lowballs... look at object in person, if it’s not as advertised... offer less. If the price wasn’t fair to begin with, don’t bother contacting them.

    I hate texting. Why would I not message when kijiji has a built in messenger?

    Tried that and there was no answer. He never seems to be in his office.

    I just assume its available if the ad is up and go right into either asking for details or bartering on price.

    Basically my first message is usually something like "hey, where in the city are you located? any issues with it/what is the condition like? would you accept $x for it"

    if they don't reply then whatever, likely either its sold and they haven't taken down the ad, or they don't really care too much to put in any effort to sell it. Either way not worth wasting any more time on and just move on.

    If I'm buying I've always sent some variant of "when can I come look at it". At some point during the process we're going to have to meet, and I don't see any point in making casual conversation before that. You've got it for sale, I want to buy it, so let's get on with it. Anyone I've sold anything to usually sends something similar. I've never sold anything to "is it still available" guy.

    I don't know, but I don't have the app on my phone and the email account that messages go to isn't on my phone either. So unless I get on the computer regularly I don't have a way of checking messages. So if you send me a message, and I'm away from the computer all day, you'll think I'm a time waster dickhead. I understand that the issue is with me, but I'm not willing to change. I've never sold anything to anyone that didn't either call or text, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything by dodging messenger.

    Ya but for me, I dont like giving my number out to randoms and I fucking hate talking on the phone, so I only message. The only time I dont, is if we are trying to actually get together.

    I don't understand how that's not step one of the transaction.

    Tin foil hat on....Because 90% of the time its people that never actually call or text me and then magically, I start getting spam calls.

    I also don't give the address unless I have their phone number and until they are already in my town.

    Because it’s a massive waste of time for all involved.

    Whether it’s lowballers or sellers with unrealistic expectations there is a lot that can be done at minimal inconvenience without running out to look at something.

    It's an easy conversation to have with the seller. "Is it fucked? Are you retarded? Can I see it?"

    Having to message back and forth with someone who can't decide whether something is worth taking a chance on is a tremendous waste of time, in my books. You guys can live your lives that way if you want. I'm selling shit to people that know what they want, not people who might consider buying what I have, or something like it, sometime down the road, depending on the circumstances. What a fuckin nightmare having to deal with people like that. No thanks.

    Yeah and I weed those fucks out by not responding to messages. Adults who aren't afraid to talk on the phone are pretty easy to deal with.

    Lol get the fuck outta hea. Not replying to message doesn't mean you don't get tire kickers. Those people could be potential buyers, more than likely not, but still lol

    I don't know what to tell you. People who text, and especially people who call, are more serious and motivated, in my experience. Maybe I'm missing out on buyers by ignoring messages but I've never once had replying to a message pay off. I know I've scooped people by calling rather than sending messages too. Three of the trucks I've bought in the last five years, I got them because I went to the front of the line by calling and setting a time to meet right away.

    Edit: For a guy who doesn't have time to run to the computer to respond to Kijiji messages I sure have a lot of time to fuck around and post here.
