    I found a Grace frame for sale on Craigs list. I contacted to woman about it and she said there is someone else comming to look at it tomorrow and if she doesn't take it she will contact me to come see it. I find myself hoping the other woman wakes up to a flat tire. Am I mean or would you do that too?

    Or you could do what the lady did to me...say, I'll come and see it and buy it right now. Then, I got the so sorry e-mail and the lady got the machine I wanted because she sweet talked to get in, in front of me. LOL.

    If it was a great bargain I would have said I'll give you more then the asking price if you'll sell it to me now.

    If you are meant to have it it will be there waiting for you. That is how I look at it so that when someone else gets what I wanted I could live without it and not be a total witch. LOL It works most of the time.

    On the other hand, you might wonder why she didn't take it, if there was something wrong with it :-D

    Yeah I saw a painting once that I liked. Hubby told me no. It looks great over my couch, I ADMIRE IT EVERY MORNING.
    Well I am happy to see I am not the only one. I don't think I will worry about the carma. I really do beleive it will be there if it is meant for me. I just really wanted to stir the pot.

    No, you're not mean - you're human. As long as you only wish something happens that means the other buyer turns it down, and don't actually try to make it happen, you're doing what 99% of the population would do. You're just more honest. ;-)

    Well no e-mail yet but the day isn't over either.

    Hubby learned early on to negotiate with me rather then tell me. Telling me to do something is a sure fire way to get me to dig in my heels and do the opposite. We were at dinner once and a girl friend of mine saw something and she said "my husband would never LET ME have that". Even my husband laughed. Her husband did not laugh. He glared. I wonder what ever happened to her. I don't think we have seen them from that night 10 or so years ago to this.
