Can people read?

I put up an add on Craigslist to sell my old snow blower, in the add I tell them about the blower, has electric start, runs well etc.

I keep the add nice and short so its an easy read.

I get 3 emails asking if it has electric start and 2 asking if it runs

Do people know how to read, not a big deal in anyway but it does make you wonder!

LOL, I know. I have an add on Kijiji stating that " I repair GM clusters" and I get an email " How much to repair my 2005 F150 cluster?" People can't read. I should have answered $3000.

CL is flooded with people who don't read. Just the nature of the beast I guess. I put a car up once "project car, does not run, not driveable, will have to be towed home". If had a nickel for every call or message I got that said "does it run, can I test drive it"....

I worked in skilled trades for 35 years and learned a long time ago that the vast majority of people THINK they know what they are doing but in truth most of them are just plain stupid.
