Selling a jacket online. An unfortunately true story.

Jacket for sale – $10.

Message from Woman: I’m interested. I’d like to try it on.

Me: Ok, here’s my address. (I write address).

Woman: I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

— next day —

Woman: Is the jacket still there?

Me: Yes.

Woman: Can we meet at the Central Station?

Me: No. The jacket is at my house. At the address I gave you. I’m not going into town.

Woman: Tomorrow?

Me: If you want to come to my house tomorrow, sure.

Woman: Ok.

— 2 days later —

Woman: Will you be near Central Station during the week?  (No mention of not showing up the day before.)

Me: Fine. I can be there today at 1pm.

Woman: Great!

— 12:30 pm —

Woman: I can’t come today. Someone at my job is sick.

Me: Ok. I have someone else who wants the jacket anyway.

Woman: Ok.

— 1pm —

Woman: Are you here at the Central Station?

My own magazine

I have to read a lot of online magazines for my job. So many of them are the same. Then I start thinking about writing my own online magazine. Much like a blog I guess.

What would I call it to get people’s attention? The Awesome Gossip Report.

Top stories: Just awesome stuff, like how I heard the building I work in has giant nutra-rats living in the basement. Or how to turn a character on RollerCoaster Tycoon into a Monster Truck and roll over customers.

I’d give the latest in “Keeping up with the kids.” The top trends in 1st – 4th grade.  This week it’s “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” a new game to play outside called “Blood Potato,” and Digimon is making a comeback.

In food news, cucumbers are really cheap this week. And “How to NOT make dry lasagne.”

What am I missing? Not much more than these other online magazines I see.  I guess I need annoying advertising on the side. Maybe I can at least get AWESOME sponsors like “bacon bowl” or “Hamburger bed.”

You’d subscribe, right?

Onion glasses!

Can’t believe I’ve never seen these before. Very glad research and time is going toward important things like this.
