The Daily EO: August 21st, 2012

There is a woman in Muskoka who wants to buy my pine trunk as a toybox for her granddaughter.  That is great.  She sends me an email every couple of days telling me this, but never answers my responses.  This morning’s email advised me that her husband was coming to pick up the trunk “sometime today or tomorrow”.  Don’t leave the house!

The 6 drawer dresser ad on Kijiji has garnered 6 people asking “Is it still available?”.  When I answer “yes” (usually immediately upon receiving the email), I get no response or follow on questions.  Is there a bunch of people in Muskoka who just want to know if Kijiji works or not?  And in the 2 minutes it takes me to reply, have they realized they don’t need a dresser?  Or did they pull out a magnifying glass and look at the picture more carefully and find some flaw?
