Default Am I Wrong To Be Irritated?

To start I will say unless enough people tell me that I was wronged I will not say the buyers name.

Anyways, through messages I agreed to a deal on ebay, however, we agreed we would continue the conversation through blowout, as ebay does not permit you to sent paypal addresses. He said he had created an account, however it was awaiting activation. Anyways, fast-forward a few days, and I am getting considerable interest in the card, so I sent him a message saying taht if he still wanted it to please message me. Fast-forward 2 more days (to last night) and I still don't have a response, so I check and he has left feedback for people in the previous day. So I send him a message saying please tell me whether or not you're interested. He replied very quickly,

Quote:
Dear qbkauctions,

so sorry about that, been away for 2 days (Keep in mind he had left feedback in the previous 24 hr.).

i had to buy some variation cards for 2012 topps chrome that wiped me out. so im gonna pass on this, tho i do appreciate everything, good luck!!

-chris
This bothered me, but i've done this before too so I dismissed it. However, today I saw that last night (the same night he said he was out of money) his account was activated, and he created a thread saying he had money and was looking to buy cards, I know he had at least $60, most probably more, and it was a $70 card.

I don't care so much that he chickened out of the deal, as I sold the card earlier today, however it bothers me that he lied his way out of deal. Am I wrong to be bothered by this?

You should mail him a chicken salad sandwich that you left out in the sun for a few hours.

I know, and he seemed so polite through the first messages, but do you think this can be expected in the hobby.

You got dry humped.

It happens, but just a lesson to not hold cards for someone you don't know. Especially for these types of off-eBay deals.

If you had considerable interest in the card, then sell it to one of the other people who want it and move on.

This gets my vote

It seems like every hangnail suffered by board member is getting detailed these days in its own thread.

Like I said, I sold the card the day after he said he lost interest, it's just kind of irritating.

yah, explain to me why this is thread worthy?

would love to know why you feel the need to air out my messages to you, and then, you sell the card and are still complaining???

i didnt want the card, sorry i didnt state that, i would rather fill out my topps chrome set than your card.

this makes you look very foolish, and for me, if people want to think im an donkey, thats your opinion.

mad over sports cards, wow!

Just trying to figure out if this is a regular occurrence in the hobby, or if this guy is just one of the irritating people you'd find in any hobby/line of business.

probably would have been better for you to not post anything, especially if you carry the attitude I've underlined and bolded.

So you agreed to buy it, then turns out you didn't want it, so you didn't pay? You're acting like the OP is in the wrong, and you think this thread makes him look foolish? Jesus Christ.

Like I previously posted I am in no way mad about the card, I'm just kinda pissed that you lied your way out of that deal.

No, I have never agreed to buy anything and then backed out. I don't think you gave anyone the wrong impression of you, either.
