First off, I don't want to be that guy. ... Yes, this is a rant, a rant about my frustration dealing with one of our own TB bass brothers. ... Let's start at the begining. Last weekend a fellow TB'er posted an amp I was interested in. He wanted a certain amount, shipped anywhere in lower 48, so, I offered $20 less and he said yes. So, right away, I PayPal'd, his own request, the funds to him. ... Hours later he complains he's not shipping it because I didn't pay him enough money. I double check and I did send the right amount. ... Hours later. ... He says he's not paying the PayPal cost. ... I said, "What? you requested PayPal and that's what they charge to stay in business." ... We finally agree, he'd ship the amp Monday, send me the tracking number and then I'd send him another $20 to cover shipping. ... Thursday, I email asking what's happening with the amp and he says he's waiting for the $20. ... Which is about 4% of what I've already sent him. ... I've PM'd him, I've emailed him and texted across country to him, with little or no response. ... I'm guessing he's a kid and has no idea how this world works. ... I'm guessing next he'll say "I can't figure out how to refund your money." To fellow TB'ers #1 If you're going to post in classifieds read the instructions first. #2 PayPal: It charges a fee for this service the buyer doesn't. #3 Email/PM'd/Texts: Respond as quickly as possible if someone has sent you one of these. It's called respect and everyone wants it and expects it. #4 Your word is your bond. ... I think this is the hardest lesson anyone can learn. What good are we as musicians if we don't do what we say we will do. ... If you join a band doing Led Zepplin and half way through the set you decide to play Kiss what good are you? ... Tower of Power said it best, 'Don't Change Horses in The Middle of The Stream'. ... I hope some young player reads this and gets it.
