I am confused. Those who know me well say that getting me confused is not too much of a challenge. So no doubt this confusion is something you, my reader, can easily solve. If so please reply and help me out of my confusion.
As you know I run the web site Christian House Sitters. Over the past week I have had a number of very similar emails. They have come from all over the world. Scotland, Australia, America and South Africa. All have asked basically the same question. They have come from people saying that they have a holiday planned, they go on to mention the dates. Then they say something along the lines that they would love to have some Christian to look after their home and pets while they are away. They ask what we charge.
My first point of confusion is that the web site clearly says that our service is, at the moment, FREE to home owners.
Anyway I always reply explaining that this will not cost them anything and that there is therefore no risk involved.
I offer to help them with listing their details if they need any help.
Then nothing happens. They do not reply to my message. They do not list their house. They do not do anything.
As I said I am confused. If they were interested enough to want to use this service. Interested enough to email asking for the cost. Why do they vanish when told it is free?
