Re: Too good to be true??? Help me ASAP!!

I've been buying & selling stuff privately quite a bit over the past couple of years and I find ignorant discourtesy to be the majority of responses - probably around 60%.

How tough is is to call and cancel a meet? I can't tell you the number of times I've arranged my schedule or waited around to meet someone and they simply don't show up or call.

Unthinking rudeness seems to be rapidly becoming the new normal.

By the way, I ALWAYS show up when I say I will and I ALWAYS call if I later decide against a purchase after a viewing.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
