I’d like to buy this, if it’s still available. I’ve always wanted one of these Whirlpool portables. Please let me know one way or another.

Dear Sandy,

 

 

 

If it’s OK with you, I would like to mail you a check for your asking price for this dishwasher. Once the check has cleared and you are satisfied with payment, I will have a friend of mine come and pick it up to bring it to me. If you require cash, I can find a way to do that as well. I will try telephoning you as well; I wanted to email you immediately to let you know that I’m serious about buying the dishwasher. I don’t need to see it beforehand; you seem very trustworthy.

 

 

 

Ken

Cash only upon sale,

Would you accept a Postal Money Order which is as good as cash? If yes, please send me your mailing address. As I said before, when you are satisfied with payment, I will make arrangements to have it picked up. I would like to do it this way so I can secure the sale. If not, I will have to have Jackie bring you cash on pickup which will take a little time. I want this machine so I will do what you want, but I think we’ll both be happier if I can get payment to you quickly.

 

 

 

Ken

Some appliances just aren't worth dealing with nebbishes like this.

Maybe you could send your friend the money and he can go and do the cash transaction. If you want the machine, maybe you should deal with the narishkeit and the nar.

At least you got a reply from the seller. More than we both can say for that GE W/D set that was posted on CL a month ago. I replied many times from different addresses with no response at all. If it was because they had already sold them so be it.

But what didn't make sense was that while Im telling them I want them and can come anytime to get them Im not only not getting a reply from them but they're continuing to post new ads for them. I looked just last week and all three ads are still there.

Keep phony fetid "spirituality" out of our business

bajaespuma's profile picture

I am thinking of asking Jackie to contact this person if she's in the area and see if she can snag  the dishwasher for me, but this person has proven to be uncooperative, thick and, most irritating of all and the point of this thread, all delivered with the arrogance and hypocrisy of that smarmy quotation that is the antithesis of the spirit of the sender. My better brain is telling me to let this one go because the seller is going to be a pill every step of the way.

 

Almost as bad are the eBay sellers that include the little la-di-da religious devotional cards with the invoice.

Posted something in another thread about how some CL sellers make it clear in no uncertain terms that things are what they are, period, end of story.

Nebbish

"a person, especially a man, who is regarded as pitifully ineffectual, timid, or submissive."

As with so many other fun and great words it hails from Yiddish origin thus probably heard more in say New York City and other places that saw large influxes of Eastern European Jewish immigration.

Quite Honestly

As our parents are want to say, sometimes we have to listen to what they little voices are saying.

Have usually found when something starts off badly it is a good indication no good will come of it in the long run.

The dishwasher isn't exactly being given away and you are purchasing the thing sight unseen. You have nothing but the seller's word the thing is operational and that it why you are seeing is what you'll get. If the seller isn't willing to even entertain playing ball what happens if you mail payment and they decide to go away for several weeks?

Using Jackie is a good idea but IIRC she is often on a schedule that can change and or had certain promised deadlines to meet.

Who is going to properly crate/prepare this dishwasher for a cross country trip? Seems highly unlikely thus far the seller is going to go down that road. They seem to want someone who will arrive hand over cash and take the thing away, period.

Would suggest U-ship but prices there have been getting very dear lately and again you still need to arrange payment.

If the worse comes to the worse you can always scan last minute flights to Oregon for a deal. But not sure about bringing a dishwasher back even as check in cargo. *LOL*

After watching every episode of "The Nanny" at least ten times I thought my Yiddish was pretty good. Just call me a schmendrick.

Gantza. You end the word without the "eh" sound for feminine nouns or the "er" for masculine nouns and your mouth would snap shut and you couldn't get the next word out.

A halber emes iz a gantzer leegen means a half truth is a whole lie.
