Default Is my girlfriend a dirtbag?? (sold a car)

Someone came by to look at her car for sale yesterday.
list price was $1,000


they didn't sound very interested but later via text offered 650-700

I told g/f to call last night or today and let person know if she would accept offer. (she wouldn't take less than 800 so the answer would have been no)

She forgot to call yesterdays seller and say she declined offer. no call=no chance for counter offer either.

there were 3 more people lined up today to look at car. first person came, offered 800, SOLD.

now I remind my g/f that she has to call yesterdays buyer and tell her that is sold for 800.

I think she should have called before first looker today. but she forgot(an honest mistake) but now feels bad for not calling.

Shit happens. I'm sure the first guy won't be too happy but it was an honest mistake I'd just call and tell him that. They will get over it.

No money down = no holdsies.

Shes good to go if he wanted it that bad he would have paid asking price.

I sold a truck once and had a lady who wanted it. As we were standing at the corner where it was out for sale she told me "I want the truck" I said ok do you want to put any money down to hold it. she declined to which I replied "not even $20?" she again declined. So, I said ok, left it on the corner for sale. later that day a guy calls me while at the truck I go down, meet him, and he agrees to full asking price ( the lady and I agreed on 300 under). He put $100 down and I drove the truck back home. I had to call her and boy was she pissed. Moral of the story, you cant please everyone, if he wanted it that bad again, he would have put cash down and paid full price.

and if he really wanted the car, he would have called, not texted. he prolly didn't want it, just wanted to see if he could get it for dirt cheap.

Normally I would disagree with myself and say that she coulda called him back etc. But with ebay, craigslist, unemployment, facebook, gl4x4, and everyother place to list your car for sale you get so many tire kickers nowadays that its ridiculous. If you want the car buy it. Show up, make an offer, drive it home.

What kind of jackass makes an offer on a car via text? What the fukc is wrong with people?

I wouldn't even call him back, since he couldn't call to make an offer. As a matter of fact, text him saying "No car for you, cockbag".

Texting is strictly for shits and giggles, not for anything serious or business related.

I'm of the thinking.." she should have called but no sweat"

and just to clarify, the "HE" yesterday was a SHE, and she was looking for a car for her mother.

and its not like she texted the offer and that was it. she DID actually come look at the car and drive it. but left, then texted the offer later on.

not that it matters anyways.
