Ok - so I found something on Facebook for an arcade item I wanted locally near me. Without going into detail - we chat a great chat, we know people in common - and I offered up the full asking price (this wasn't an auction situation) for an arcade item he posted in cash up front that day (within hours of him posting as a matter of fact). I even figured out delivery.
Then silence from him.
I ultimately got a message from him after I asked that he's been overwhelmed with offers - OVER - asking. About $800 more than what he posted it for and I've already offered in full in cash.
Now, I cannot imagine anyone (at least not us here on Pinside) buying a 19 year old machine would offer OVER ASKING just for the heck of it. It's not a highly desired game - and it's not a pin. It's a HUGE arcade item that's on par with a skeeball. I don't want to say specifically as if he's on here I'm not trying to out him - I'm just venting.
I'm so annoyed - but either he decided he should have asked a higher price (not my problem) - or he's changed his mind (that's OK but not what he's telling me.)
He's now telling me he's not in a rush to sell and will get back to me.
Argh! - that's so not cool.
