|I can't find that other thread, and I just really needed to post this because it really made me laugh. Out loud. Maybe I shed a tear. Perhaps it's because I'm still smarting from the loss of the Chervet Ibex Table (sold for $150)...well whatever is the reason, this was just what I needed this evening... |
you know, I had socks once....
|Good one Bee! That is priceless! Is this a PA dialect/accent that then gets translated into funny spellings?|
|Forgot that now I need to add these to my craigslist dictionary ... |
- rod iron
- rot iron
- chester draws
- had sock
|I've come across: |
And still for sale:
pedal stool (as in table)
|I saw a "Chip and Dale" chair on our local CL recently, a "Duncan Fife" table, and more "dinning" room tables than I can count. |
ETA: an abundance of 20 yr old "antiques".

|I had to read 'had sock' twice before I got it and then the tears and giggles bubbled up after 'oatamen'. I should check our local southern-dialect CL more often, but I'm sure I'd find lots of 'dinning' tables also.|
|It took me a few seconds to get the pedal stool (table). That is a good one!|
|Love the had sock or oatamen... I recently saw an eBay listing for "from age plates". It's probably an auto-correct error, but it made me laugh.|
|That is really funny and so sad at the same time. |
Today, our CL had a "poppy son" chair (papasan).
|Bee, the legs on the had sock are worth the asking price. If it;'s not in a scary area, I'd be asking if you can buy just the had sock to re-do it!|
|my3dogs, I thought the same thing...and I actually said it out loud to my dh. Should have seen the look I got. AND he tolerates a lot of my "visions". |
~Bee, who is still stinging from missing out on that table...
|Is he stifling your 'vision'? This could be a huge opportunity! :-) |
But, I just Googled the ad, and someone with more vision than your hubby has snapped up the had sock or otamen! The ad was updated 2 hours ago and now he just has the chair.
Watch this appear on a blog where someone had turned that thing over and seen a Hancock and Moore label on the underside! Bummah....
|I have to ask because I can't figure out what the word is supposed to be... so, what is the "had sock" supposed to be? I don't think we use that word in my area.|
|In case you've been piling your clothes on top of your had sock or oat amen, you might be interested in this 4 draw barrow:|

|Do these people not know how to spell ottoman? And I'm not even sure that this one qualifies as one either. lol....|

|Sandy1963, people don't even know the difference between lose and loose, much less words that are becoming uncommon in our dumbed-down vernacular.|

|blubird, if it hasn't been peed on by a dog, I simply won't get it!|
Can you imagine they thought someone would have paid money for that opportunity?
Could be convenient for other owners of small Yorkies, buying furniture that's pre-chewed and pre-peed-on. Avoids the suspense. I think the seller missed a marketing opportunity.

|This one has me making my deeply puzzled face. Do you think they just don't know the word upholstery?|
|Living in rural SC, I see lots of CL doozies. I should start a list. |
I can see that there are plenty of semi-literate folks out there, and that there are others for whom English is a second (or third) language, but the the one thing that really gets me is- How can you misspell any item that has the name WRITTEN RIGHT ON IT??? I can see it in the picture!
I've even suspected that some ads are intentionally screwed up just to attract attention.
Around here, a device that uses a cable to pull heavy objects is usually spelled 'wench'. The terms 'sell' and 'sale' are often switched- 'I have a truck for sell. I need to sale it by Monday.' And don't forget- That chester draws has a meer on the back, as well.
|The item is not what's funny in this case (though, good luck getting that $2K it was appraised for). |
Read what happened last time this was posted . . .

|Here's one I saw today for $150.|
|xc60, that has to be one of the most horrible things I've seen. I've seen elephant tables before, but that looks like a dead one.|
|Sure can't avoid the elephant in that room .....|
|Lol, I know, he he. Something about it is just really off.|
|And this also for $150, a never used bulldog ottoman.|
