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

Interesting thread....wish I had seen it earlier....as a Catalina 25 owner maybe I could have been help to Jay.

What happened to the C25? The ad seems to be gone. I wonder if the owner sold it, or just took down the ad due to a bad experience.

Jay, do you know?

Thanks for coming back and providing the rest of the story, jay. New information changes the perception of the situation.
I apologize. In light of this new information, your email to bail was neither cowardly nor discourteous.

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.
Faster and chef2sail like this.
