So there’s this guy who has a crashed integra on CL and he’s parting out. I needed a specific part and sent him a picture. It’s the bulb holder for the fogs in the jdm one piece head lights. This was on Thursday and I called him explaining where to look. He said he can’t find it. I told him that he won’t be able to see it from outside and that he’ll need to take the cover on top off to access it; or if he can’t, take it apart.
Hangs up and after a few minutes, he calls back. Says he can’t find it and begins rambling on about how japan’s version is this and that, and he can’t find the bracket. Then he asks about the bumper lights. WTH? I told him that it’s not in the bumper and that it’s inside the light housing. I asked him to take a picture and send it to me to confirm. He said that it’s too much details and he won’t take a picture. WTF? It’s freakin’ easy to take a picture!
I believed that he didn’t look where I told him to. So I said that I can come take a look tomorrow night around 8pm after I get off work.
He agrees and said he’ll be available. I live in West Covina, work in North Hills, and he is in Huntington Beach. Freakin’ far right?
So it’s Friday and I got off at 6:15pm. I texted him and said that I can be there by 8pm. He texts back saying to call him when I’m closer. Cool.
I’m driving south on the 405, hitting some traffic in some spots along the way. I think I’ll make it to him by 7:30. He texts me at 7pm and said that something came up, it’s a no go and that he has a date. Fuck your date! I was upset. I texted back saying, “Serious? We had an agreement to meet since last night. Don’t tell me I drove this far n I lost my chance.” I was in Carson by now. What a flaker! I know how it’s usually the buyers that flake but having a seller flake instead? ESPECIALLY last minute when he knows I’m coming from North Hills and I’m almost there. You can tell your date to wait a few more minutes while you get some money. I can come and pick up my part and be out of your hair in a minute if you need to go somewhere.
This is why I contacted you prior to meeting up so none of this would happen. If you had a date prior to us setting up a time, then tell me so we can reschedule. I can understand.
I exited the freeway and asked him if there’s anyone else there that can handle the transaction. He says no and not to worry. He’ll save the part and to call him tomorrow. I said, “No thanks. I don’t want to drive and have you flake on me again. Thanks for your time. Good luck with your sales.” He texts me back, “good nights call me over the weekend i will discount like 10 dollars for your trouble house at”
Huh? “house at?” This guy is incoherent. Seriously, if you’re selling shit or doing any kind of business, keep your word. Knowing I’m coming from North Hills and you can’t wait a few more minutes? You’re getting money! All I did was wasted my time and gas! Fuck you and have a nice day!
:chill: haha, just saw this emoticon right now. After this, I went to my friend’s house and hookah. Then went to a bar and had a few beers and sliders. This night didn’t end too bad. But still, the principle people, the PRINCIPLE!!
