Default Send a PM even if not interested....

Just another pet peeve.....if you do not want two Cman sockets from a person, be decent enough to let them know you do not want them AFTER I get a USPS quote for shipping.

Sorry, just lately it seems that some people on here think it's OK to set out feelers and then not respond to people who take the time to get a shipping quote. If you don't want it or found it cheaper that's fine, just le the person know!

it is quite annoying but what ive learned from being in sales for many years is 'customers' dont like to say NO as they 'feel bad' so ignoring calls/emails or saying their 'thinking about it' is ok even though their really just jacking someone one off n stringing them along....but atleast they dont feel rude for saying no... seriously, wtf?

Heck, I had a seller agree with a price on something, and he never sent the payment info so I could buy it.

I'm only 24 but was raised by my father only and know when to shut my mouth and listen and say please and thank you. The people I grew up with on the other hand, not so much!

Sad to say but that has always been a part of business.
People say they will be back or they want it and never take it or show up.
They want you to order something special then expect you to order it witout payingup front. I ordered lamp parts once for a customer in an antiques mall I owned. I never saw the person again. I use the parts becasue I rebuild old lamps. I just by old chap lamps for the good parts. The parts are cheaper and they are old and fit right in.

I have a sale pending on 2 1964 Honda Dreams, a builder and a parts bike. The buyer keeps asking questions and wanting pics, then I dont hear anything. I am selling for what I hve in them, too many projects. I have bent over backwards to answer all His question, but He cant find 5 minutes to say yes or no, so I can make other plans. Not a big deal, but kind of rude.
