This lady was selling a box of K’Nex for $12 on Craigslist.  To be honest I had no idea what K’Nex were when I e-mailed her the first time.  They are a kids toy that is kinda like Lincoln Logs.  So, like Barry Sanders, I saw an opening and I took it.

They are in RED and I am in GREEN.

i see that.  i just think that asking $12 for a box of kleenex is a little high.  i would be interested in taking a look at the tissues though

Why do you keep calling them kleenex then?  When do you want to take a look at the K’Nex?

I have a box of K’nex, it’s a kid’s toy, but not a box of kleenex the tissues for your nose

man that stinks.  the tissues sold quick.  how much did someone pay for a tissue box?  now you’re selling kids toys too?

It’s a K’Nex box. Not a kleenex tissue box.

ok.  did you sell the tissue box or not?  i thought you said they were sold already.  i am willing to pay $8!  i just think $12 is too steep

i have to say you’re really crafty.  keeping your kids toys in a tissue box is a great idea. how did you think of that?  do you have a large supply of boxes?  i think $5 per box is a fair price if you are selling them in bulk

You’re willing to pay $5 for a box of tissue?  You can just go to Jewels and get them for half that.  Why don’t you try them and not look on CL

that’s probably a good idea but i like how you have your boxes already decorated.  is that your kids art on the side of the box?  it’s really cute

There are no toys in this tissue box.  They are K’Nex and they are in a K’nex box.

right.  kleenex come in a kleenex box.  toys go in a toy box.  how much do you want for the kleenex then?  i think $8 is a totally fair price and i will buy them in bulk for $5

I don’t know what you don’t understand.  K’Nex are a toy for children.  Kleenex you use to wipe your nose.  I am selling a kids toys not tissues.

well i think it is kind of misleading for you then to sell kids toys in a kleenex box?  don’t you see how that could be confusing for someone?  you should have just listed the toys seperately and not put them in a tissue box then.   what are the toys then?  i have 2 little boys 7 and 9 who love to play with toys.

I did just list the toys.  They are kids building toys called K’Nex.  Your boys would love them.

how much for the package deal then?  ill give you $12 for the toys and the tissues if you package them together.  deal?

Hahaha.  I was just selling the toys the K’Nex for $12.  If I have to throw in a box of tissue to close the deal then I guess I will.  Can you come to Niles tonight between 7-8pm?

wonderful.  i need to wipe my boys noses soon.  they are geting snots all over their erector sets.  see you soon.

Erector sets are exactly like K’Nex.  I can’t believe you’ve never heard of them.

I’m not starting this conversation over with you.

I am seriously STILL e-mailing the lady that is planning to stop by and “Exercise my demons.”  Any other ideas I’d love to hear them.
