So, I’m selling a pair of shoes on Fleabay. Fine, it’s a pair of Loubs I fell out of love with. That’s not strictly relevant but I know you’re wondering all the same.
Sometimes when I do this I get people messaging me with a request for a ‘buy it now’ price. Mostly I decline because I like the thrill of watching people part with cash for something I was going to donate to charity anyway. However, I got the weirdest request I’ve had in a while…..
I was just wondering…this may sound a little odd…but if i was to purchase the shoes, would you be willing, after I have paid, to mess them up a little? Maybe a little mud and dirt? Would be willing to pay extra too,
