Oh brother

So, the guy I talked about in a post this morning came back tonight so we could finish up his Craigslist ad.  He didn't like the fact that I lost a couple of the pictures, but I told him I wasn't going to scan any more pictures and that he'd have to get along with just the ones I had.  
I helped him word the ad, added pictures that turned out too small... made the pictures bigger, and so forth.  
Once his ads were on, he wanted to see how they looked.  Then he wanted me to look through Craigslist to see what other people were asking for walking horses and foxtrotters.  I found a few, then told him, "I don't intend to sit here all night; you have a computer, go home and look it up yourself."
"My computer is down," he said.  
"Well," I told him, "there are other things I'd rather be doing with my evening.  If I were you, I'd find somebody who's more skilled with computers so they could get the pictures and everything else just the way you like them."  
Even with me insulting him, it took me an hour to get rid of him.
As I said before:  Somebody just shoot me!

Isn't it amazing how some people will take advantage? Makes you wonder how their brains work that makes them unable to see that they are being rude and intrusive. And the more you do for them, the more they expect . . . :-) the only people I put up with that behavior from are my kids--cuz I can tell THEM off! LOL
