Someone sent me an email yesterday saying
"I'd love to pick up your room set tomorrow"
Hmmmmm? Pick up?
Not "come see it if I like it?" I thought.
The name in the email was not really a familliar one for me, but I assumed it was a lady.
Then, this morning someone called me about it.
But that was a man and he said
"I'll come pick them up on her behalf"
Then I go "Hmmmmm???" Again.
If she wants the set, doesn't she want to see it for herself???
Anyway, I'll ask him when he comes, I thought.
So I called him. He said "I'm running late, I had to pick up some stuff in Port Moody (about 40 minutes from where I live) I'll be there in an hour to pick up your furniture."
So I waited and waited.....one hour has passed.
Hmmmmmm. I go again.
What is going on???
Also why do they use the words " pick up" instead of "come see (the furniture)"???
If you're interested in something, don't you want to see it first, then decide if you're going to buy it??
Then this time, he called.
"I'm really running late today, is that OK one hour from now?"
I didn't have any plan to go out today,so I said "No problem, no need to rush"
Then finally he showed up with a rental truck!
Then I go " What's going on??" ...Again.
When he came in, I asked him
"So, is this for her little daughter?"
( at this point , I was very curious!)
"No, it's for a movie set."
"Yeah, she goes on Craig's list and checks some furniture
that we can use in movies"
He handed me a paper to write my name and address and
what kind of furniture is that , how much is that and so on
( to keep a track for them).
On top of the paper,it said "Taken back"
So I asked him
" Taken back? Is this the name of the movie?"
He says "Yes"
My furniture will be a movie star!? ( maybe not )
It looks like it's a made for TV movie but still!!
After he left, I said to my husband
" I should've asked him to put my name for the credit in the movie!!"
And we laughed and laughed and laughed.
Well, this was my very first furniture sale ever and it turned out pretty interesting.
I feel a bit sad though that they didn't go to a little girl's room...
But they will go to a....MOVIE SET!! lol
I hope I can see these furniture on TV someday!
Life is sometimes full of surprises, God we gotta love it :D
