    Since many of us chase grass in the summer and are stressed about plow contracts, here is the best laugh I've had in awhile -enjoy...


    Me: wanting to buy cheap sod You: selling sod but not answering emails - w4m

    You posted an ad that promised nice sod at a great price. I responded promptly, excited that your offer and my need of cheap sod could coincide so conveniently. Obviously we're made for one another! Then I checked my email every hour on the hour, anxiously awaiting your response. I never got one! How could that happen? I sent another e-mail and then, just to make sure, I tested both e-mail addresses to make sure they were working. Well, they are! Yet here I sit, still waiting for a response to no avail.

    What gives?! Do you have cheap sod or not? Are you just using Craigslist to test the waters and see if you've "still got it" sod-wise? Are you just some sod-bot and not a real person? Was my need for sod somehow not enough for you? Was it because I'm seeking an NSA (Need Sod ASAP) relationship with a sod purveyor and you're looking more for an LTR (Lawn Term Relationship)? Now I feel like I'm in the lawncare version of "He's Just Not That Into You." Do I send yet another email or would that seem "psycho" at this point? Are you not responding to any emails or is it just me? All I want is some freaking grass on my freaking black dirt at a good price.

    Well, if I don't hear from you today I'm moving on. I've got needs, and obviously you're either not serious or you're picky about who gets a piece of your grass. I didn't even mention it in my email but if you'd answered you'd have found out I have plenty of bare patches for some lucky sod guy. But I guess someone else will get to lay those.

    Location: My bare dirt patches
    it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
