Re: Just another day on EF

For sale; IKEA Crappo Wardrobe. Cost 400 CHF new. Will sell for bargain price of only 399.50 CHF. I only had it for 10 years and disassembled it 16 times and the mirror is broken. It has woodworm but has been professionally strengthened with duct tape and rusty nails which should increase the value.

I won't post a picture of the actual wardrobe but here is a picture of one new from the IKEA website.

Two weeks later.

Why do people turn up to buy my stuff but walk away when they see it?

Not just another day...

Something a little different today!

Wonder how long they can keep it up, or even if they will ever come back.

Re: Just another day on EF

I want to re-wire a plug. I couldn't hold a screwdriver to save my life. I don't know hown to remove the fuse and haven't a clue how electricity works but I'm too cheap to pay for a professional electrician.

If something goes wrong its all your fault. Not mine.

Re: Just another day on EF

In my country we have things called letters which need to be posted. How can I send a letter in Swiss?

Re: Just another day on EF

I hit a parked car. It was the other cars fault as I was trying to pick up my kids biscuit which had fallen on the back seat & a stray sheep was walking down Bahnhofstrasse. As the sheep moved around the parked car, a bottle of Evain rolled under the seat & brake pedal which blocked the brakes. At least I managed to get the biscuit so my kid stopped screaming after impact. It is therefore the other cars fault as if it hadn't been there, the sheep would not have walked out around it.
How do I get their insurance to buy me a new car?

Re: Just another day on EF

#k xyz for sale
I don't have enough posts to post in the marketplace so I'll post something for sale whereever I please, include personal details and not give a price.

#k+1 How do I post in marketplace?

Followed by M posts (where 10-M = current posts) of "me too", "same for me" "this happend to me" "have you tried coop" "Tibits"
