Dude, you whole argument is based solely on an assumption as though you knew what happened and why I didn't pay right-a-way. You assumed that I am one of those buyers that would agreed to pay and do not. You know what they say, you assume that way because that is what you would do.
What would you rather me do...no responding to his pm after he sends me his paypal address or atleast give him a sense of peace that I got his pm and will pay soon....that is not "still hashing out", so don't add something to my post. Where did I say that my family was impatient? I just say they were important to me.
Do you not see the contradiction of your approach and in your posts in this thread? Forget emotions and opinions of honor, loyalty, etc etc etc. Think logically.
You already told us why you didn't send payment right away...you had to get to dinner, with family, on your birthday. That's all well and good. HOWEVER, you could have sent the payment instead of a message saying you'll send payment. You said your family was already waiting. If they're not getting impatient, they can wait a few more minutes while you fire off a PayPal payment. If they ARE getting impatient, then you probably shouldn't have kept them waiting while you were haggling - on your birthday - right up until dinner. Especially since you proclaim all three (family, dinner, birthday) are more important (as they should be) than making a deal over something that's commonly available and can therefore be purchased another day when the three (family, dinner, birthday) are not such pressing matters.
As a buyer, as soon as I get the PayPal address I'm logging onto PayPal. I'm not logging on to POTN to say I'll be logging on to PayPal later. One takes just as long as the other.
