Craigslist: Ow, this post hurts.

3 Nov

So the appeal of this lil’ coffee percolator to me, and the seller, is the fact that the inside of it somehow lights up when it’s on. Oh, and it’s $20.00! Could you disable the heating element in it and just turn it into a nifty accent light on a shelf? Bah!

Dear seller I appreciate your warez and your salesmanship, but it really makes me wonder how you write to your friends and family.
