Hi friends! I always like to double check myself, well, just because.... I don't like to be a turd. . . and I know I can be. .
I was going to buy a current Stern pinball machine from someone I play with at league, and although we don't always agree on everything and are often competitors, I always felt there was a pretty high level of mutual respect. I've bought about 10 pins in the past with no issues from pinsiders/friends. I asked for a couple weeks to get the money arranged and transferred so I could paypal the entire total, both our preferred payment method. When I got to transfer the money the price he asked was not what we agreed upon and I explained that I didn't want it if the agreed upon price was not still valid and that there must have been a misunderstanding.
Before given the opportunity to discuss it, I was pretty much told that he had always thought I'd be a schmuck and back out. . . it wasn't until I showed him where we had chatted about it on Facebook that he agreed he had offered it to me at a discounted price, but was still pretty curt about the whole situation and was sure as hell not taking back the thoughts about my schmukiness. . . but he'd honor that price now
at this point I am like, I don't even want HIS game. . even if it is a decent deal. . do people really forget they offered a discount? did he have to insinuate that he thought I was always a schmuck and would just back out anyways?
I figure at this point what is an extra few $$ to just get a game with better JUJU surrounding it from someone else. . . ? ? ? when a simple, sorry, it was a misunderstanding would have squashed it all rather than doubling down on me being a schmuck. . and saying he guessed he'd honor the price?
i guess I am a schmuck, but my money spends. . . LoL am I wrong for saying thanks, but unnecessary salvos fired, no thanks?
