First time CL buy and I've heard stories from you guys. Pick up Monday, fingers crossed.
Well guys, my first attempt to buy on CL may be my last. Just got a text from the fella I believed I had made a deal with that he had sold the bucket. This is not how I do business. When asked a direct question I answer it so as not to lead someone astray. I'd like you guys to be the judge though. This is our conversation off the text on my phone. Did I make a big assumption or did he avoid a direct answer so as to not lose a "sale"?First time CL buy and I've heard stories from you guys. Pick up Monday, fingers crossed.
Yeah, I noticed that but I don't do business like that nor do my friends. A lesson learned. I prefer to look for the good in folks, it's the price I sometimes pay. Just would have preferred he would have said "I don't hold things". Next time a phone call not a text.Read it again. He did not say "yes" when you asked if he would hold it.
I'm amazed that he let you know it sold. I've had a case where I didn't find out something had been sold until I showed up as scheduled to pick it up from someone who was holding it. Of course, I've also been the person unknowingly buying a "held" item out from under someone on the forum.
