So I answer the one. Clearly a young kid (and you all know how much I HATE when kids call). Parents -- DO NOT have your kids call.
"I saw you have a rabbit on craigslist?"
So I acknowledge, yes we do, and of course (because I know you read yesterday's post), their only question is, "how much?"
*bangs head against the wall repeatedly*
So I tell the kid, and he says he wants to get the rabbit for his cousin. Bad idea, but again, I'm talking to a kid, so this is probably getting nowhere, anyway.
I explain to the kid, we are a rescue, in order to adopt, we'd need THE COUSIN to read the care packet, fill out the adoption form, we'd review it, and we'd go from there. I explain that I can email the docs if he'd like.
Naturally, the kid tells me he doesn't quite understand, and asks, can I explain it again?
THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR KIDS CALL.
So I explain it again. He says he'll call back in a few minutes.
Needless to say, I never did get a call back. Totally not a surprise.
And again... I know I've said this a million times, but it continues to ring true... this entire conversation could have been avoided, had the person calling actually read the ad. Cause every thing I told them is in the ad. I'm happy to answer questions... but after 15 years, it does get old repeating stuff that I took time to write out in the first place, that someone couldn't be bothered to read.
