I want to rant!

Postby Dr_Jengo » Wed Mar 20, 2013 11:30 am

Ok just to rant about something..

Was trying to sell some figures on eBay so I had it up on auction. Some guy messaged me to nego on the price. He wanted it cheaper... His reason.. He was 14.

After some nego, I dropped the price a little but more than what he initially offered. He accepted the price. So I asked him when can he meet? He said next week. I have been screwed many times by people who ask me to wait till next week, next month coz they waiting for pay, no cash this week etc etc. They usually don't turn up or decide not to buy. So I said, I can wait till next week but I will need a small deposit and then you can pay the rest when you collect and I explained to him nicely why I needed a deposit.

His reaction, "So you don't trust me?".. Again I explained to him why and it's not that I don't trust me. 14 year old who hasn't matured decides to ignore me and bids on eBay auction.. Ok fine, not to make a big hoo-haa, I waited. Auction ended, next week arrived. No reply from him. So I msged him back if he was interested in collecting the figures. No reply yesterday.. Tried again today and kid went " You don't trust me, why should I trust that you have the figures?".. I'm like WTF! But Mr.Cool decides to explain little kid that since the week has passed, he can just pay upon collection. Little kid being a little kid says he doesn't want the figures..

Effed up, eh? Maybe I shouldn't have asked for a deposit or maybe I should sell only to people over 18..
Just had to rant.. Kids annoying me early in the day..

totally understand how you feel, thats why i always say stuff like:

To seller: I'll buy it next week, but don't reserve for me, if until then it's not sold, i'll buy it.
To buyer: I won't reserve for you, first come first serve basis. No cash at the moment? Suck it up.

Like this fair to both buyers and sellers. The buyer don't have the right to reserve at all, you reserving it for him it's his privilege and you're just too kind that you might be cheated.

Not saying you shouldn't be nice at all lah, but afterall you are just looking for a fair deal.

Haha actually that's good advice Taro.. Sometimes I just try to be nice to buyers to build up some relations but I can't always expect things to go smoothly as a seller. Shit happens! :)

Haha no it's not RJvan.. he's a lot more mature than this guy I'm dealing with.. :lol:

Yea ranting feels good, feels better to let it out as long as I don't go overboard like posting the guy's number and all that on the forums :P

Sorry borrow your thread. I also want to rant! Some random guy got my number and called me yesterday, already told him wrong number. Today a female called from her office asking me if I wish to attend the event by the guy who called me yesterday. Damn annoyed and replied her who the hell is this guy, I don't even know him. She asked again so do I want to attend. WTF!! No no no not free, thanks.

Last week also kena sms ad CreditXpert. Fed up of these annoyances $^@#/&/

Haha nice! Weird people... why would you want to attend when you dont even know who the hell he is??

And haha.. Joxhn!! Reminds me of that time when someone kept messaging my phone about a meetup. He kept going on about the timing and 15mins before the scheduled meetup, he messaged "I'm reaching..". Not sure what happened after that, he never messaged after that. I didn't even reply throughout..

Edit: Oh yea! Go ahead and use this thread for ranting all of you!
