Default Keep your word

Kinda shitty when you pm someone back and forth on an item they're selling and agree to a price and a meet location and the personsends a msg to call him in the middle of the day to work out the details of mtg. So I call the next morning cuz I'm f'in busy and he won't answer or reply to text but ends up posting on his thread that he sold the item this morning cuz I didn't call him. pisses me off. My last pm to him stated I will buy them for $900 and meet you in Brighton. What time. I think that's means I want them. If it was first come first serve I'd understand but you don't make a deal to meet because your traveling that way in a couple days and then sell the item out from under me before that day comes. That's shitty businesssome people f'in irritate me!

Well he's across state and first one to offer to bring over here because he was coming this way. No other way to hold to a deal like that other than your word. I told him I would buy them on the day he said. Maybe a grey area but I'm thinking he should have kept his word. At least contact me to tell me someone else wants them and giv me an option, pay pal or something. Oh we'll just venting.

I hadn't heard from you since Sunday night. We hadnt set a meeting place or time or any details. All we had was an agreed price. Sorry you were busy and couldn't get back to me. Someone local had cash in hand and bought them.

I don't want to get into who said what or who did or didn't do the right thing in this particular case because frankly I don't know or care the details. But I do agree with your logic in the above post and hate when that kinda crap happens. I tend to give dibs to the first serious buyer to contact me, even if they can't buy it right that second. Tire kickers are on their own, but if somebody is wanting to buy the item I'll work with them because I always appreciate when a seller is willing to do the same for me. I've had pretty good luck with it on here.

Thanks for the support, and I have had good luck too. And by the way I didn't put his name in out of respect. Like I said I was venting not trying to bash a specific person.

If you had BOTH COMMITTED to a price, place and time, then he stood you up. But it doesn't sound like you did. You admit you were too busy to call him back.

I had a guy hold a product for me based on my word. Stand up guy for sure.
On the other hand, if a long distance deal is under way but not finalized and then a local buyer shows up and saves the seller the hassle, I don't think it's all that bad. Just a bummer.

One guy claims place/time/pickup was established, the other doesnt.... Someone should post PM screenshots, something doesnt sound right.

If I was the seller I would of sent another PM/text/whatever and said "I have a guy with cash in hand, send me some money to hold them or I am going to sell" if no response in a couple hours I would sell.
It sucks, but thats the way it works...

Money talks, bullshit walks.


Take another viewpoint, someone who holds onto an item 'promised' to a buyer with no deposit, turns down a cash in hand offer and then the original guy backs out.


Not saying that's what happened in this case, but it does happen.

When 2 people want an item, one of them is going to be disappointed.

Some jerk bought the wheels and tires I wanted and I had somewhat of an agreed upon deal, even offered to paypal a deposit. I will just pee on them when I run into the guy who got them, its bound to happen eventually.

I could copy all the PM's but its not gonna change that they're sold. We did agree on a price $900 for the tires only. I asked to meet in Lansing, he said he's coming to Brighton Wednesday. He then proceeded to tell me his schedule and available times in Brighton at 1:22 am. I'm asleep. Then yesterday afternoon he said just give me a call and we will work out details of mtg. Defiance 665 said it right. We had a verbal agreement, at the least send me a pm and make sure I'm gonna buy them because you have someone else interested. It's just common courtesy. like I said just venting. Contacted a guy in Taylor who will do the same tires brand new mounted for $120 more and I only have to go to taylortuckey.
