Craigslist fun

Post by Rochin54 on Fri Mar 04, 2011 6:01 am

I sent a request for info on a rental house the other day, and got this wonderful response back:

Thanks for your response and interest in my house.

The house is very much available and it is a large 3 bedrooms and 2 bathroom house. Which was formally occupied by me and my family before we left for Nigeria for a pastoral duty, we left for a volunteer mission together with other missionaries for a development program with the aim of developing the people of west Africa physically and spiritually as God as directed us. We wanted to sale the house initially but we later changed our mind after we discovered that we wouldn't be spending more then 6 years here in Africa So as you know where the house is located at (4839 Southwest Patton Road, Portland OR 97221). Which my family and I have spent so much time and money to maintain it up till its standard. We have been trying our best to make the house as clean as possible, because am a clean person and we don't like dirt around our surroundings and also the Bible says cleanliness is next to Godliness.

So we are looking for a well-behaved, clean and honest tenant to rent out our house too. So will like you to give us your word and promise us that you will take good care of our house so that we will be happy when we come to visit you in the future...

Pastor Crandall


I decided I'd have some fun with him, and am sending this back:

Dear Pastor Crandall,

Wow, that is just so wonderful of you and your family to go out and spread God's love. I am honored that you would think to allow my family and I to stay in your home, especially given the cleanly state of it. Indeed, we prefer not to have dirt around our surroundings as well. I do think this is going to be a great match for both you and I.

As far as move in date, I would love to move in as soon as possible. I don't think I will need to see the house, given your cleanliness and the wonderful pictures that were in your add. Can we move in beginning next Wednesday, March 9th?

Again, thank you so much for your dedication to the Lord's work. Blessings to you and your family.

I can't wait to give him my bank account number to get him the deposit.

That's a great deal for a $1M 2,900 sq ft home, except that Pastor Crandall doesn't own it.
