Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

POST HIJACKERS *#€$heads

Post by 54 OVAL » Mon Jun 04, 2018 9:51 pm

Why on earth do people insist on commenting on a for sale post when their only intention is to disrupt a sale.

Ok, the item in question was very cheap, so why not let someone grab a bargain which very rarely happens, NO that’s too easy so they have to comment “surely there’s a 0 missing off the price”. WTF, the only reason I can see for this is the sad €$#%ers got beaten to the post, so if they can’t have it NO ONE can.

Get a frigin life you 2 eejits, be happy for someone rather than shoot them down with your GREED, as they are negotiating a deal.

I could easily go on one of their Buses For Sale threads and slag off the overpriced crap they are selling but then I would be just as low and degenerate as they are.

If you see something for sale DONT MAKE ANY COMMENT UNLESS YOU HAVE AN INTEREST IN IT.

....... me off and makes my blood boil. Fkn losers.

In return for my successful purchase, the seller pm’d me as he too realised that these idiots pm’d him behind my back offering more ££££ so they can make a quick buck.

I have told the seller that I only needed the item for one part, the rest I will sell and give him the money back so he may donate it to his charity. THATS how you should conduct yourself, but not nowadays, this forum has some members who will cut your throat for a buck.

WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.

End of my rant, and apologise if upsets anyone.

Usually people seem to add an extra zero to the prices... or so it seems.

The sales pitch I hate is the " I'm really Not fussed if I sell or not , I can just spend a weekend on it and make 1000's, I'm doing you a favour just posting, I' dont really want to let this off my hands"
I actually think like writing well why dont you just do us all a favour and F in keep it then ! But I don't as I dont want to mess up another persons sale. There is a guy in near me that shifts about 2 cars a month, and everyone he has some major emotional attachment to. Its a wonder he's not a basket case with all that loss in his life. Obviously complete BS.
I much prefer the "bored with this now want something else" sales pitch !
Which on that note i'm bored now so I'm off !

Totally agree, it puts me off advertising on here, I've even gone to the lengths of saying " no picture hunters " as once they have a picture you don't hear from them again, I was selling a Baywindow jack on this site and earlybay, had a mail from a guy, all ok, then no reply for over a month, then get a mail from him saying, "don't get on here much, is the jack still for sale"
Mailed him back and said yes, he mailed me back saying " will you sell just the bag as I already have two jacks " needless to say my answer was no, why don't you sell your two jacks and buy mine, then he asked what postage would be, so off to the PO and got a quote, my time, my fuel, mailed him back...........no answer, no thanks..just silence...what a total waste of time.
54 Oval is so right too, I'm a fair guy, no one knows what NOS parts are worth it's a suck it and see thing, you want it, will you give me what I want for it, if not, fine but don't go boo hooing the fact I'm asking more for NOS than repro stuff.
End of rant.

Phew...
As you may have guessed..
into my 70th year and my contract was not renewed.. so I have a new boss SWMBO...
God.. can I go back to work..?
Sold the palace and seven months later we moved to a cwtch in Yorkshire to be near to our youngest son and their new issue.. our Grand daughter...
Three months on and new kitchen almost installed .. 5 week saga and still not fully fitted yet.
Back to old job Commissioning Engineer..
9 units had to be cut to fit..
So not in a fit state to play "pass the parcel" quite yet...but was expecting you to sell with ease..
We are still downsizing..aka getting rid of my crap.. but yes still alive n kicking.
Hopefully will soon be staight.
Found my sewing box n machine..time to play soon..
So if you still have I may take up your very kind offer.. young Ron..

Tee Hee correct

My first version before edit was that we moved to be near our grand daughter then on first edit added my son and then on second edit ...his wife..
So she is their daughter and our grand daughter!
So off to correct!
My eldest son and wife gave us two grand sons, our youngest son gave us the first female issue for 107 years.. a grand daughter..
Ps Qs.. lol
