Thread: Am I Unreasonable ??

  1. #1

    Default Am I Unreasonable ??

    I'm a new memebr, so i shouldn't be bitching....but

    I advertised a lounge on another forum, in excellent condition, for only $30. The buyer changed the pick up time three time's. First it was Sunday afternoon, then 11-30am, then 11-00am, all today on Easter sunday.

    I wait until 12pm, nobody shows up, no phone call. I then decide to get dressed and get out the door to visit family, but get a phone call as i'm walking out the door from the buyer who says they're on their way. I say sorry, but it's too late.

    Now i get abused on the forum and made out i'm a real pri*^ who wouldn't wait.

    Am i unreasonable or should've i waited and hoped they turned up, after they already changed the pick up time 3 time's. A simple phone call to let me know they would be late is all i required.

    Not unreasonable at all - you were ultimately expecting them at 11, you waited an hour before deciding to go out. Common courtesy would dictate that they should have called you at 11 (when they were supposed to be there) to let you know they were running late.

    They must think that their time is more valuable than yours - and for $30 I wouldn't be waiting around if I had things to do!

    I do not think your being unreasonable at all, If I was the buyer I would of given a call if I was going to be even 5mins late...I agree with GAG think its common courtesy.

    Don't let people make you like crap on the forum, explain the details exactly like you have here and only a fool would agree with the buyer.

    Nothing much to add, except I agree with both Rebec & GAG.

    I'd also like to echo that you should reiterate these details on the other forum too. It's rude, inconsiderate and damned ungrateful of the buyer to behave like that!

    I did give my side, but the buyer just keeps bitching. I'm the nicest person, willing to help others, but i hate being used or made a fool of.

    I had the thread deleted now as i'm not going to argue over $30.

    It is a shame so many people don't have the common courtesy to phone and say they would be late.

    Not unreasonable at all. As others have said it's courtesy to at least ring to say they'll be late. Unless you are like my o.h he's always running 5 minutes late.

    Over $30??? Geez, these buyers really should go get something worth bitching over. What a bunch of inconsiderate, obnoxious tossers.

    Sorry to hear of your experience. Unfortunately the world is no longer full of thoughtful, decent and punctual ppl. Sigh.
