I only became aware of this sense of the word "ghosted" about two years ago. I've only heard it applied to personal relationships. I didn't think it could apply to a Craigslist gone bad because the relationship wasn't established enough for it's absence to be "ghostly". I was wondering if you were keeping a string of strange on the side.

I've had this happen so much on Facebook Marketplace. It's usually with addresses. We'll set the pickup time and then I have to keep pestering and pestering them right up to the last second, or beyond, for the actual location. Like, I AM TRYING TO GIVE YOU MONEY. WORK WITH ME.

What’s a loft bunk bed? I thought there were loft beds, and bunk beds.

Yeah, ditto.

Unless maybe perpendicular bunk beds are known as loft bunks?

The weirdest was when someone bought something from mrs lunch including sending payment via paypal and paying for shipping but never sent an address. Kept saying "Oh, let me get that to you next week."

I honestly don't know the difference on bunk bed naming nomenclature. I've seen loft kids bed, loft beds, and "loft" bunk beds with the bottom bunk perpendicular to the top. I really don't know if they are actually different or what. Sorry peeps. I'm not going any further down the rabbit hole on this one.

I'd always thought "bunk bed" meant two or more beds stacked atop each other, while "loft bed" is one bed raised high enough to fit a desk, sofa or some other useful furnishing underneath.
