You might want to give it some time, and figure out if something happened on his end today that would have caused this situation.

I got a truck and trailer yesterday for Trogg to pick up a Bronco in Indiana. We got lost and we were like 3 or 4 hours late. Plus Chris is a retard and got the wrong phone # so we couldn't call him lol.

We eventually found the house though and Randy was cool about everything.

If it's been like days though, I would probably be pissed. Maybe something a little more important than a transmission came up? Life happens sometimes.

I have always been a man of my word. I guess I expect the same from others. It takes less than a minute to call say I am running late or I changed my mind.

Don't get me wrong, I would be upset too. I would just hate for this to turn out to be something bad on his end! I just hope you didn't post this too early.

Being a Man of your word means absolutely nothing if you don't have understanding, Patience, and respect for other people (and various other characteristics). This guy being late DOES NOT make him a horrible person. Give him a few days. Maybe his phone died? His truck died? He died? He got the wrong number? Could be a mountain of reasons. But there is no reason to Bad mouth him behind his back. <---That is the lowliest thing you could do, IMO.


Now, If he did just bail and not call you, it's reason to be mad. And I retract what I said in the above paragraph to an extent. Ok, I'm done.

I don't understand the wait a few days. We had a time that worked for both of us and we both agreed upon it. I told him that I had plans around noon and the transaction had to be before that. I cancelled my plans that I made to give him the benefit of the doubt. I tried to call him, e-mail him and I PMed him, no answer. I saw on his public profile that he was on this site at 10:24A.M. He was supposed to meet me at 10:00 A.M. At the very least he could have sent a PM stating something came up, I changed my mind or whatever. How am I bad mouthing him behind his back? Isn't this a public forum?

if that is the case with him being on here when supposed to be meeting you and not returning pms, then he is dishonorably discharged from the credibility line.

Yeah, it is a Public forum. (So, I take back the "behind the back" thing) But why bring in the when you could deal with him on a personal basis and probably resolve the issue with out the Drama. Maybe I'm a More Gracious person, but I would give him some time before disgracing him in public.

I could have swarn that the reason we have feedback is to inform other people of what the person is like in dealing with people. I just don't see the need to Badmouth the guy while all you really need to do is leave negative Feedback. I understand posts like the boggin boy thread and such, but just one mistake? Is it really worth the ?

Maybe he overslept, or lost your number.

Real measure of credibility comes in how he makes it up.

P.S.- I've been on both ends of this at times. If I'm waiting, I give about 15 min to 1/2 hour before leaving. If I'm running late, I try to call- but sometimes I've either lost the number or forgot my phone...but I do try to contact the person as soon as possible.

Actually, from looking at i-trader feedback:
http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/itrader_main.php?

It appears 99 out of 100 transactions go without issue. That is pretty damn good if you ask me. I'm sure that number is WAY lower on craigslist or ebay.
