One of my favorite pasttimes is scanning CraigsList for cool stuff at reasonable prices. My new photography habit has really grown lately and I even found my camera and lens on CraigsList. I love finding deals and so far this site has been really great. However, today I am CraigsList Angry.... I've been wanting a flash for my camera so that I can do better indoor portraits. The one I am looking at is in the $300 range. I found one on CraigsList that a guy was selling for 1/4 of the price because he owns a business and they used a bunch of cameras and flashes to photograph an overseas trip to one of their plants. Long story short, we emailed many times talking about price, etc. He agreed to hold two flashes for me to come take a look at and purchase as long as they were as nice as he said. We got all the way down to setting a time he would call to let us know he was home from work......we were all ready to go......no phone call. I've emailed him 4 times since then and no reply. ARRRRGH! I do not like to be "jerked" around! It would be so nice if he would call or email to let us know that he'd sold them to someone else or that he had been locked in a closet for 24 hrs. and this was his first chance to get word out.....
I guess I need to calm myself down this evening, so I looked up these verses:
