Default Got blocked for making initiial cash offer ?????

i saw a 142 sbc low profile blower on the classifieds for $1600....I DO NOT need a blower and do not have a small block period...but because i could possibly build one sometime in the distant future i figured i would make an offer of what the blower would be worth to me just to sit on the shelf for now..

so i made an offer of $900 plus shipping and explained i didn't need it (blower) but would shoot an offer to him but understood if he was not interested.

1st- i knew the offer was low and somewhat apologized for that in my 1st message offer..I trully expected a counter offer from him or at least $1600 is my firm price anything but a blocker on my reply pm's.


2nd- i started not to even send the offer but i figured what the heck he might except or maybe a counter offer could be agreed upon somewhere in the middle. It was just an offer thats it..Right.?..isn't that the way it works of have i been doing this wrong for over 40 yrs ?

3rd- Since Money is tight right now i figured the seller would be glad to get a real Bon-fide cash offer from someone with at least a chance to make a counter offer..right ?.. isn't that how it normally works ?



so what does the seller do..he sends me back a pm telling me "i made the offer politely but still insulted him "?...and to make it worse i tried to pm him back to see what he would take for the blower and he blocked me from sending him messages.......WTF ?...LOL


LMAO !...i was only trying to buy the blower from him...I guess he should have checked my profile...lol..

anyhow i guess thats his right...if ya reading this ed..sorry i pissed ya off so bad for trying to give you some cash...that trully wasn't my intention and i hope you do not pay advertsied dollar on stuff your interested in without inquiring if the seller would take less

also i had my mind made up i would have Come up to $1500..if ya wanted to kick it around a little...thats how it works most of time..
oh well...i wish him (ed) luck and i am sure he is a good guy..he has many honor payments....with that said

i can buy a 142 blower anytime i want they are not that rare...lol ...i just need a good used one anyhow..

I guess getting blocked was the hit in the a$$ for me...lol..but its a 1st time for everything.

Brian.

You put it politely, but still a little insulting.

Wow did you see how many honor payments he has made 43!!!!!!!

Dang Bjuice I was 100% on your side until I saw that, Eds66Nova is the Sh*t.

No really I think a cash offer should be politely denied or returned with a counteroffer. But this guy is doing something right, looks like he's honest and a good seller. Bucking him would be like fighting with the Pope. I don't agree with him blocking your PMs but its his choice.

Hey lets get him on here and tell us how he sells so well. Now thats someone I would have liked to win the RJ trailer. I'll PM him and tell him your a good guy and maybe we can get him on the Forum. TC & GB :lol: :lol:

also the Blocking is my only Gripe or should i say Question.



Hell i give up...lol...i am not pissed..it's comical to me actually.

A drunk was sitting in a bar next to a very attractive woman. He asks her "Would you have sex with me for 1 million dollars?". She said "Yes I would.".
He then asked "Would you have sex with me for 5 bucks?".
She replies "NO, WHAT KIND OF A WOMAN DO YOU THINK I AM?"

He says "We've already established that. Now we're just negotiating the price".


What this has to do with this thread? I dunno. It's just my favorite barganing story.

Hey ! Ya gotta start SOMEwhere ! When I'm selling stuff and get a low, low offer, I don't get 'insulted' for cripes sake ! I say "No thanks, try again" until we do or do not come to a fair price. Or " No thanks I'm very firm on that price". All done politely. My junk isn't so darn holy as to be above someone offering a low price. :?
