This just has to be posted. It is probably the second most irritating interaction I have ever had with another human, including those who have puked on my Danskos.
It started with a Craigslist ad for some retro lime green kitchen chairs. Obviously I couldn't pass THAT up. It was posted in early June. When I replied and the seller said they wouldn't be available until the end of July, I should have quit. By the time she went back and forth forgetting days and times and being in general a complete moron, I definitely should have.
At the finish I went to get the chairs because, as George Carlin says about passing annoying drivers, I just wanted to see what the fuck she looked like (she looked like a vapid blond college kid half-drunk on cheap beer). Start at the bottom because it's copied from an e-mail thread.

On Tue, Jun 17, 2014 at 1:56 PM I talked to my roommates and they are willing to sell them next week. You still interested?
On Jun 9, 2014, at 8:24 PM I suppose that would be OK. I’ll drop you a line next month then.
On June 9, 2014 at 12:37:44 PM I still have them! I know my roommates would prefer to keep them til end of July if that works for you?
On Jun 8, 2014, at 8:44 PM If you still have these chairs I'll take them!
