And, quite honestly, to complain that you were first, but then back out of the deal, is not right.
Hey Everyone,

It's quite simple. It's my fault that I thought "I'm interested" was good enough. We use that on our local facebook for sale site. You say "I'm interested" and the person says okay, here's the payment detail or when can you pick it up.

So in this case, I saw Joey say he wanted it and Chuck said okay, here's where you send payment. So I took that to mean the deal was done and I had been bypassed. Someone at that time contacted me to say they have one that I could buy, maybe seeing I had been passed over. Figuring Chuck had committed to Joey, I said okay. I didn't back out, that's not something I do.

Joey is free to buy Chuck's. If Joey doesn't want to now, I can buy it.

Lots of poor communication here. OP shouldn't say "Okay, it's yours" when there were two people who thought they had said "yes". USE NAMES!

Wonder what Doug's thoughts are on this conundrum?

Seems pretty straight forward, Amaris found one, Joey said he’ll take it?

I have never really understood the etiquette followed here in the classifieds. I was raised with a "take the cash" mentality. This thread is a good example of why I don't understand. Some guy says he is interested. product sells to someone else, who was apparently more than "interested." Then same guy complains that he was first in line and is owed some privilege. Seller then retracts to accommodate said guy only for him to say I found a better deal somewhere else. I suppose that validates my education. Cash is King, Commitment is Queen and interest is nothing.
