You'd think I'd learn. Things just never seem to go smoothly when I sell something on Craigslist. Correction:  When I attempt to sell something on Craigslist.

(This happened to me a few years ago when we sold our couch. The names have been changed to protect the insane.)

We installed a new kitchen sink a couple of weeks ago. It took two attempts, the first of which was called off just before someone landed in the emergency room. (That painful debacle is outlined here.)

The old sink was listed on Craigslist. Experts suggest transactions be conducted in a public place or at a local police station. The Cars 108 parking lot always seems like a good choice. Management will probably put the kibosh on that after today.

The price was negotiated, arrangements were made. Steve (not his real name) from Davison agreed to meet me here this morning. In the process, Steve took out our mailbox with his truck. He put it out of its misery.

And the icing on the cake, he opted not to buy the sink because it has a few scratches. But hey, thanks for the modifications to our mailbox. It also has a few scratches.

To his credit, 'Steve' came back with some tools a few hours later and fixed the mailbox.

But I'm done with Craigslist. Seriously.
