I am the a#@hole that is the subject of this thread. I'm sorry things turned out this way and I'ts been said "Greed makes people do some unethical things", referring to me. About the time Lou was asking about the books via PM, there were two other people asking essentially the same questions. I gave them all shipping quotes. I honestly didn't feel that Lou had committed to purchase them after hearing the fairly high cost of shipping. If he would have just said "OK, I'll take them" or something specific instead of he "wanted" them before the shipping quote, then nothing after it, I would have held them for him as long as he needed. However, after giving him the total price around 9PM, I didn't hear from him again. Meanwhile another person said he would definitely take them. So I put up on the board about 1:00 (which was the next day) that they were sold, still not hearing anything from Lou. It was sometime after that, maybe about an hour that Lou finally called. Would it have been fair to the person who committed to tell him I was waiting for a commitment from someone else first. Someone I hadn't heard from since last night and 1/2 a day? Despite what anyone else might think, I didn't think that would be fair or ethical. I've been in the sales business for more than 37 years now and have have many many instances where someone said they wanted something, then find a reason why they would not buy it, especially when given escalated costs...like high shipping costs in this instance.
I PM'd Lou, after hearing about this thread from someone and reading it and explained the above to him. He said that, after reading what Hit Money said he could see it both ways now and was over it. I told him I appreciated his service to our country and was sorry about this misunderstanding. I hope this is truly over and appreciate those who saw it the way I saw it.
