Default WTF people?

When you ask someone to hold an item for 2 weeks to allow you to get the money and they say no problem, BUY THE SHIT YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING TO BUY!!!
While you were supposedly coming up with the money, I was turning away 2 other people who had cash in hand and said they really needed the tires by telling them I would not sell the tires out from under the guy I told I would hold them for!! It's called keeping your word.!!
Also, another guy is hanging on to a set of tires for me that I was going to buy once you bought mine.
Apparently people's word isn't worth shit anymore!!
Thanks!

Yeah, I guess. There are people on here that I think you are safe holding for, but obviously not everyone.

All depends on the phone convo.
Everything I've held so far has worked out.
Shit, I sold my Ruger to a guy here like a year ago, he never picked it up (it's paid tho)

edit: who's the guy that screwed you?

It doesn't really matter who he is, he knows. People in general just need to think before they ask you to hang on to something. If they say they want it, buy it. It's not that difficult.
I purchased some stuff from someone on here who held it for 3 weeks I guess it was. I still really didn't have the cash to play with and it wasn't something I had to have, but I still bought it because I told him I would.

Interesting. I wanted to buy something on here that was for sale. I had bought from them before, so I wrote a pm saying I wanted said item, and would pick up whenever worked for them.They wrote back, no problem, I will contact you as soon as it is ready for you.
Then the item was sold to someone else, sucks don't it!

I have also had other issues with people who can not follow through with what they said they would do etc.. Only thing is, I hate not giving people a chance and sometimes it kicks you in da'azz. end rant

I agree, I will take deposits if you are that interested. Otherwise it's first come first serve.

I had someone ask me to hold onto some rims and tires that I was selling and they went as far as to set a date to pick them up, it was a couple week period until they came over to this side of the state which I had no problem with. The problem was the fact he would pm me at least once a week and tell me he found a set closer to home that he was going to look at. I nicely explained after the second pm that I didn't have a problem holding them if he was going to purchase them on the set date, but if he was going to continue to look then I was going to continue to sell. And after that pm I was the "bad guy". I hold nothing anymore without a deposit. I passed up two other buyers trying to be the "nice guy".

No. I never really thought you were serious about the tank. Figured you were getting some kind of kick out of Fing with me.

My buddy and I just got the other end of the deal. We talked to a guy on CL (yeah I know) Sunday and had scheduled to pick his stuff up Wednesday 6-6:30(Yesterday). We had discussed the price and everything was good. We were on our way there(about an hour drive) and decide to call him before we got on the freeway, to let him know that we were on the way and when to expect us(You know being polite and what not). He tells us that he sold all of it... Now I understand getting someone who is there sooner with money in hand, however after having set up everything with us, the least he could have done is called and told us that it was sold. He even could have told us that he had another buyer offer X amount, to see if we were still interested, instead of us planning our whole Wednesday around it, only to find out on our way there, that he screwed us.

Exactly. I may have been able to sell them right away and possibly even get a little extra knowing the one other guy needed them pretty bad, but I wasn't about to sell them out from under the first guy after I said I'd wait.
