I think you were wasting his time - I can't think of a good reason to be enquiring about a sofa for sale if you are not interested. Short shrift is a normal response

Why would you ask if he is selling it if you weren’t interested in buying it? No wonder he told you what he did - it must have been annoying for him.

Why did you ask if you didn't want to buy?

Why post in feminism section when its about a sofa?

So many questions to be asked...

Why did you ask if you weren't interested?

This has nothing to do with feminism btw.

This makes no sense.

Why would you interrupt a persons day to ask them if an item is available if you have no interest in buying it. That's rude.

They have listed an item for sale because they want to sell it, if you have no interest in buying it you need to not waste their time.

I think this is a post intended to show that women hate all men.

Why feel 'sad' because someone asked why their time was being wasted?

It's a reasonable question- why enquire if something you don't want is available still? It's someone looking to sell something who hopes each enquiry will lead to them selling he thing they no longer want.

I don't think this is a genuine post 🤷🏻‍♀️

He was sailing on a sofa? Was this a dream?
