Mike - if they said you could have them...either 40 or 30 or whatever the final Total was...you had dibs
Corey - I totally agree with your policy...you give 1 week and that is fair. If no deposit is forthcoming, then they lost until you get $
If i tell someone that i am interested in an animal i do not expect them to hold onto it for me indefintely. If they ask for a deposit i will give it if i am indeed serious about the purchase.
