I get my hopes up.
Then they don't show up.
This has happened three times now. Three no shows, and several more last minute cancellations.
I would chalk this up to the general flakiness of people on the internet, if it weren't for some odd facts...
All three of the no shows shared a last or first name, which I will not repeat here. A couple of others have had names that are variations on a celebrity's name.
It's just weird on so many levels. It seems so much like a joke, trick, or conspiracy to waste my time that it can't be true.
Also, who would play such an elaborate joke? Is there really someone trolling Craigslist and Kijiji making up fake email addresses based on fake names and giggling as they schedule and fail to show up for apartment viewings?
Lamest online prank ever. Right up there with "is your refrigerator running? Then you'd better catch it..."
