I've been selling things on Kijiji, to supplement our income while we're looking for work. You know things are desparate out there when people try to severely bid you down! For example, I listed a $260 mountain bike for $120, hoping to get a minimum of $100.
A few minutes later, I get an email that says "Sixty bucks. Text me."
One minute after that, I get another. "Eighty dollars. I'll pick it up today."
I text the first saying, "I have another bid for $80."
They reply, "Sorry I only have $60. Can I come get it before I leave for work?"
I replied, "sorry, I'm willing to wait for more."
The good news is that our economists believe that a recession in Canada is almost over, due to deflation. Hopefully, that reaches the Oil & Gas Industry in Alberta!
