Dear sellers on kijiji

If you want to sell something to us online, you might want to consider the needs of the people you're trying to sell to. If we offer to come over within 30 minutes, you might try saying 'yes'. Otherwise, buyers are going to look elsewhere. My favourite responses to date are:

"You can't come right away because my mother's here and the dog barks when the doorbell rings and this upsets my mother."
"You have to wait until I get home because my wife doesn't speak English."
"I need an hour to get ready."
"My wife is selling this, so I don't know anything about it."
