        Pretty common tactic to drive the price down is to make potential buyers think it’s either stolen, damaged, or unavailable. They’re doing a pretty good job of that

        Who borrows drawers, and then claims to have lost them?

        Humans. You’d be surprised.

        Who rapes children?

        Who drinks their own urine to “detox”?

        Who steals from old people’s pensions?

        Who lies about medical qualifications?

        Who tortures animals for fun?

        . . .

        I wish lying about some drawers was the most outrageous thing humans would do.

        Having said that, what you guys describe above is a possibility and if that’s the case, then it’s hilarious!

            Bro. That’s not negativity. That’s reality.

            My real life is quite good, I gotta say. It’s full of nice, caring, loving people. But I’ve seen the ugly side of things, and anybody saying “wuuuut, who would lie about some drawers?!” is being naive at best.

            They are, and that’s exactly my point.

            Someone saying “WHO lies about some drawers?!” as if it was the most outrageous thing is the world, well, should know that humans are capable of way worse.

          Yes yes, but how does it happen? You were out walking your drawers, and you never saw them again after you popped into the shops to buy cauliflower?

    What a shit type of person. Also, how the hell would you be able to lose this thing? Of course, they’re crap at lying too.

    The nerve of some people. Just how does someone get it in their head that this kind of behaviour is okay?

      How in the hell did the blue buy the ‘I lost it’ excuse? It’s a piece of furniture. It’s not like you take it out anywhere unless you’re moving.

        The seller might have moved during the year? Someone commented that the area is a college town and students move a lot so maybe? Or the true owner is more patient than smart and was ppaying the long game? Or knew the seller was full of shit and was still playing the long game?

      I’m SO outraged by this random thing on the Internet that probably isn’t even real! GOSH! I wonder if all this made up rage I have from constantly reading this stuff has a long term detrimental effect on my mental health? The freaking nerve!

        You may be reading a bit much into my comment. Chill out, dude before you give yourself an aneurysm.

      Seriously. It wouldn’t be worth my time doing the making a FBMP post and dealing with the people over 5 £

        There are plenty of people that do this just so there is less waste and cheaper things in the world. I regularly put in my stuff for a small effort fee like this instead of throwing it away. (Of course, I usually don’t steal it from other people first)

        looks like this is the kind of person you’re avoiding so they probably love the drama
