No the other companies don't give you a second chance, and if they do and you still f*4k them over guess what they do on the third time you want to deal with them. Pay the price or piss off.

Ok - name me one that won't give you a second chance? or a third one? and you AREN'T A COMPANY...

He didn't **** you over - he couldn't make the appointments. It happens. Deal with it...

I had made a deal to buy some hardwood flooring from a member years ago. I got a sample of it, got my wife to approve of it any everything. I set out on a Saturday to pick it up and ended up with HUGE stomach pains. Ended in the hospital for 2 weeks - I called the seller while I was in the hospital THAT DAY and told him I still wanted it and I just needed to figure this out and guess what? he sold it on me. Was a I pissed, sure - but them the breaks...

It wasn't like it was a medical emergency why he didn't show up. He admitted that he just got busy and forgot. I gave him a second chance and he again didn't make the appointment. It was on the third chance that I finally said piss off. Pay for the time that you screwed me around on or move on.

The problem in dealing with stupid people is that they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

It looks like you have him a chance to have the second appointment changed to the weekend then thought about it and didn't like it, so up'd the price on him.

I'm just trying to sell parts to guys that need them. If missing two appointments without so much as a email or any attempt to cancel is acceptable behaviour then that makes it clear to me that those of us on this forum that are legitimately selling parts to those that need them are considered second class citizens. Comments like "suck it up", "that is the way selling parts goes", "that is selling parts is all about", "I'm not a company, I'm just a guy just trying to sell parts". My time is worth something to me. I am a human being and just because I am trying to sell parts off of a car does not make me any less of a person than anyone else on this forum. I have a family that I provide for and things that I need to do in order to achieve that.

If people want to deal with this individual then all I am saying is be forewarned. I have had a less then ideal dealing with him and those that do so in the future will likely as well.

Highly doubt it, but believe what you will.

If you did more than just come on here to sell gear, you might have more support.

If you don't want to sell to him, don't. Yes he missed the first meeting, no it's not ok but to most it's also forgivable with an apology. He said he didn't miss the second, he asked to reschedule and you agreed. Is this not true? Which was the second meeting he missed? Unless I misunderstood, after agreeing to the rescheduled second meeting (not third), you increased the price and he cancelled, as anyone with any self esteem would.

He missed the first meeting and told me that he completely forgot about it. The second attempt I contacted him an hour after we were suppose to meet. That is when he came up with the excuse that he just got done work and was going to be another hour to get to my place. Two full missed appointments.

Doesn't sounds like he missed it - he fully intended in coming over but was delayed with work. That's a total possibility. Wouldn't call that a missed appointment. You then up'd the price, at which point he cancelled the deal. All fair if you change the terms of the deal.

Save yourself the hassle and tell your next buyer that if they don't show, you'll be raising the price.

This is actually pretty amusing... LOL

Personally if you don't call ahead of and appointment to cancel and you have to be reminded at which time you "coincidentally" just got done work and are going to be another hour to get there. I'm not sure what you call it but I say that you've missed the appointment.

I'm sure glad you find this amusing. Sounds like you're somebody that wouldn't exercise common courtesy to call somebody to tell them that you are going to be late.

Again had he contacted me before the time that we were to meet I wouldn't have an issue, things come up. To not contact somebody not once but twice that you are going to be late - simply wrong, rude and inconsiderate.

Completely on the contrary - I am a very punctual and conscience of my appointments. My job depends on it. Doesn't mean my clients are the same. I don't expect more, as if I did, my life would be a constant let down, as it seems it is for you.

I just find it funny that you expected more from someone you don't know.

It's over - let it go. Your life will be happier.

If someone's going to be more than 15 minutes late to an agreed schedule without letting me know, I'd give then a piece of my mind, too.

Being over an hour late and not updating the other party to your situation is blatantly ignorant and very disrespectful as it shows a complete disregard for the other person's time.

Upping the price is akin to the buyer negotiating after they come to see you.

His prerogative, but don't expect people to jump and say yes please if you up it.

Understood, yeah sounds like a flake. Being late is one thing, not telling you is unacceptable. People who do that always say they were too busy - bullshit, no one's so busy that they can't send a text message.

Still though, it was probably better to simply cut ties. I would rather be out the money than continue bending over for someone like that (for all you know even if he agreed to the new deal, he'd just flake again).
