In my area, Facebook has some local yard sale groups. I'm a member of a few of them. Tonight I made an offer for one guy's item, what I could pay for that item, and instead of just saying "no thank you," he got SO nasty. He started telling me how he'd rather burn the item than sell it for what I'd offered, he posted a picture of an animal's testicles and told me not to low ball him. I said I didn't, I was just posting an offer. He had every right to accept or reject it, but he didn't need to be defensive. Then he said he wasn't being defensive. (Really?) Then I told him he wouldn't have to deal with me any more because I'd never give any of my money to someone with that kind of attitude. He got all condescending and called me "honey," then said he hopes everyone on the site knows I'm a low baller. What a d!ck. I reported him, and that entire post, to the administrator. Come to find out, HE is one of the administrators! She was really helpful and apologetic though; deleted the post and put someone else in his place right away. Then she said she's just going to delete the group. I went to the guy's page to block him and it "couldn't be found." The bastard blocked ME. What the heck? What in God's name is the matter with some people?!
