The boyfriend has some crazy mistrust of Craigslist and seems to think every Craigslist transaction will result in someone getting sodomized. I try to explain to him that it’s highly unlikely that Craigslist would be around all these years if that was the case. Or at the very least it would have been renamed Craig’s Gay Hookup List.
I bought my Burning Man tent off Craigslist from some guy in a tucked away house in Woodinville and I came out unscathed. I have a friend that was huge Craigslister and he doesn’t seem too traumatized by all his interactions, although he thinks all Craigslist users are flakes by nature.
In shopping for kitchenware for our new place, I’ve suggested looking at Ebay or Craigslist for Wusthof knives and All Clad cookware because all these “sales” at Macy’s and Bed Bath are really fake sales. I found a new set of Wusthof knives on Craigslist and I told the boyfriend about the great deal, and he was thinking it was an awesome deal. Then, because my big fat mouth can’t resist, I told him, “Wouldn’t it be ironic if you got shivved by your brand new Wusthof knives.” He wasn’t too amused, “Why!? Why would you put that image in my head?” I made stabbing motions at him. He’s shouting, “NO! BAD! You’re not helping the situation.” I thought I was showing sensitivity by not pretending to hump him.
