    If you want to see the piano, just find their ad for the pool table.

    I'm always appreciating the moments that show I've made it 6 decades without yet being in a people of Wal-Mart photo or raising kids that are.

    Maybe you ARE in a "People of WalMart" photo.....you're just in the "Before" section.....it's the "After" pic that gets all the ridicule.

    That was my fear but I'm the optimist if my wife is the pessimist.

    For a while my daughter was not really knowing or appreciating she had a plenty fine and better than most upbringing. This past summer we were traveling where our choices for some gum and toiletries were a chain gas station or Wal-Mart. She pulled into the Wal-Mart. The experience was humbling for her but I'll still have my own fears until I'm gone.

    Matt's message is a reminder that I'll be seeing more craigslist and thinking about finance because I'm in a circle of siblings, wife and the spouses all dealing with parents aging. There's getting rid of and selling stuff but also the cold reality of how your savings can be gone fast. My wife's worries FTW.

    is that supposed to be a gay pool table? or maybe a breast cancer awareness pool table?

    edit: I went back and looked again, it's more purple than it is pink. so maybe it's prince's pool table.

    It seems to me that in many CL ads that there are myriad misspellings and other grammatical errors. I realize that CL ads are not formal writing arenas such as term papers, etc. That being said, are the errors the result of ignorance, laziness, or are the posters trying to look stupid to lure buyers in with the idea the buyer can "slicker" the seller? As a retired teacher, I strive to communicate as clearly as I can, so that there is little room to misconstrue what I'm trying to communicate. How about y'all?

    The way that it’s worded at the bottom makes it sound like they aren’t sure if it’s a pool table or not.
    “Pool table obo” is like to offer that’s it’s a fine dining table for people with 7 teeth or less.

    Sweetheart, would it make any difference if I told you I lost the rent money playing piano?
