Well the buyer finally paid,,, this morning. About 3 and 3/4 days later after winning the auction. Why do people have to be jerks about things? I'll admit, I can fire things right back when you're being an a-hole to me. (my wife told me last night that I should've never messaged the guy and just waited patiently for the payment)... and like always, she's right. I'm naturally impatient. I get it from my father who is the KING of impatience still to this day! I've gotten better over the years, but still it comes out. I was hoping to get the money on this auction and turn it around to buy something else, but that wasn't the case,,, had to wait almost 4 days.
I just think it's crappy how some people treat others. Was my initial message to him short and to the point? Yes. Did I tell him what I would do if he didn't pay? Yes. What's wrong with that? This guy took it as a threat that he had better pay or I was going to report him to the police or something... at least that's how he reacted.
Like many of you, I have had very good luck with Ebay in the past as well. ALL the things I sell have been paid for in less than 24 hours after I sold them. PLUS, when I bought something, I ALWAYS paid within 24 hours and if I didn't, I would message the seller and give them a legit reason why I could not pay till tomorrow or the next day, whatever the case may be.
Sorry for getting worked up on here... just ticks me off that this guy would "assume" I knew he was on Easter vacation and that he couldn't pay right then...
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
