I had a deal going down and I didn't have the money, I talked to the person and assured them I would have the money this week and asked if they would hold the item for me and they assured me they would.
Long story short, today I get the cash and am ready to buy and they said sorry it's sold.
Why not just say up front sorry, first come first serve?
They didn't have to say they would hold the item if they didn't intend too.
I guess I don't understand because I'm a man of my word, if I told someone I'd hold something, I would.
Oh well, everything works out for the best.
