Dont u hate it when people say they will show up ..then never do

I have had this experience 3 times now with trading animals ... once last year I was supposed to meet a guy to trade a couple leos for some cash ... after a few phone conversations we decided to meet at a mid point to satisfy us both ... anyways after travelling there ...well needless to say after an hour the guy doesnt show up .... so I email me and phone ...he told me that he "didnt make the deal to meet, that it was only an offer ..nothing more".... so anyways I am pissed off but figured there are a lot of screwy people in this world ... so now I am trying to sell one of my snakes a couple weeks back ... anyways I am waiting for the guy to come pick the snake up ..on halloween night mind u... now theres a "social gathering" going on upstairs that I am waiting to attend to ... anyways after an hour of waiting I decide to go up and enjoy the time ... ..I found out 4 days ago that this person had an emergency ...so thats fine ...anyways we finally talk again and he was supposed to meet me at my place again this morning ... well by 3 pm I assume hes not comming ... hes on my msn msger ..so I msged him when he was online/away .... no answer ... then a few min before I type this, he comes back online ... I msged him again and again ... while waiting I see that he all of a sudden goes to "away" mode ... ..ANYWAYS ...the point of my rant is that if ur going to say ur going to meet someone ... DONT DITCH THEM AND MAKE THEM WASTE THEIR SATURDAY!!!!!


THANKS FOR HEARING ME

ANDERS

They way I set everything up is that I have people meet me about 15 minutes from my house at a Tim Hortons. When they get 15 minutes away I have them call me and then I leave. That way I'm not strung up waiting for someone to show up. If they don't call I don't leave. Lots of people don't show up or are hours late.

You hit the nail right on the head there Corey. We've all got plenty "no show" stories.

I HATE that more than anything else!!!!!! and have had it happen so many times I can not even count them.
It is a rude thing for people to do.
I get so mad about this subject I cant even think of what else to say.

I HATE when people don't show. I go to PCPC usually once a month (1.5 hours) for feeders and offer to meet people on Airport rd. to sell or buy. 3 times now people haven't shown and I end up waiting to long and missing PCPC.

AHHHHHHHH I hate it when people stand you up!!! I was supposed to meet this one guy like 3 times and he keeps telling me how busy he is (and he's a freakin website designer and always online!) and that's his excuse for not showing. Man, if I ever miss someone the first time, I make sure I am damn well there the 2nd time around. I just end up don't caring about people when after 3 times they still "can't make it". Also, get there and on time!!!! Don't be an hour late, either... geez!

You'd think that if someone was interested enough to make a deposit and set it all up, they'd be so excited that they'd be at the meeting spot a half hour early!!! I know that I would be.

It's rude when people can't even be bothered to call to cancel. I've had a similar experiance, except it was to buy some feeders, the guy couldn't even be bothered to return my messages, emails or phone me.

Well after repeated attempts he refuses to say anything to me ... and I found out that on the same day he went to pick up a python at a friends place ...which is down the street ..but never showed up to mine ... just a word of warning to anyone who deals with CRAIG BOYD (boydssankes@hotmail.com) ...
