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?
