I'm going to rant now I'm afraid. Why why why when I offer things for sale do people say they want things and then not bother to contact me again. Or they change their mind but don't bother to let you know so a week or so later you're waiting for their payment and email them to remind them and they go "oh I'm sorry, I don't want it anymore" (usually using some stupid excuse). I am sooooooooooo fed up with it keep happening. I'm sure it's not just me it happens to. Why are people so bloody rude and such time wasters??

Seriously, if someone offers something for sale and you've said you want it then keep up your side of the bargain and pay for it. Don't mess them around, it really pisses people off. Especially if they've done what I do which is find packaging for the item so I can see what the weight will be and then I usually leave it in the envelope or box until the payment arrives and then I can just quickly seal it, address it and then post it.

Can you tell I am really angry about this?? It's happened to me a number of times over the past few weeks alone. I have piles of stuff cluttering the place up waiting to be paid for.

I've tried chasing a couple of people up but had no reply so it's going back in the box and they can forget it (worse still, one of the items was free for postage so I was doing them a favour).

You really are rude and annoying when you waste people's time like this.

And while I'm at it - if the person who owes me £10 is reading this, I hope you're proud of yourself for ripping me off and stealing from me (as well as the other person you ripped off at the same time from the same forum).

All I can say is I hope karma bites these people on the arse big time.

I can totally understand why you are so annoyed. It's happened to me a few times.

I certainly hope karma kicks in for you.

Well said Lucie!! While we're talking of bitten bums, I hope the sneaky cow who put a sticker on my windscreen yesterday telling me off for using the mother and baby spaces when I had only Rosie with me gets a horrible note from somebody else one day, hopefully on a day when, like me, she is having a rare day out with no little children and has momentarily forgotten that she doesn't need the larger spaces.

I can well see why you are ranting, it's bloomin rude to back out on an agreement. And when you are trying to have a clearout and make space, you just don't need to be messed about do you!!! I hope Karma is listening to all this!!!
