Emerson:
I was at an out of town conference upon receipt of your message, and chose not to answer given the more important issues at hand for me at the time, namely work, but I was surprised to receive this public forum message and, frankly, your more offensive PM, please be aware of the following. That said, I regret the discomfort or apparent stress that this transaction of one week or so has caused you. I will also send your trackingnumber to you via PM.

#1: I am NOT a professional retailer. I buy a lot of clothes, most of them directly from high end retailers like Bergord Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bareny's or Saks (and at off reatilers on occassion, hence difference in service between Neman's and Filenes or Yook for example). The full ervice retailers liker Bergdorf's and Bareny's might afford you the kind of service that you want; but, at the same time you'll need to bne aware that $25 for slacks, especially Etro's that I've rarely worn and paid close to $500 for two or so fall's ago, won't get you very far in these stlores, including the offline ones noted).

#2: I have a very busy professional, social and family life, one that affords me to opportunity to purchase the items that I do at the upscale retail level and, truth be told, is drives the direction of my life most days as oipposed to SF purchases, omc;idomg your used pants for $25,

#3: Even if you do purchase directly from the aforemention retalers, they have policies and do not drop everything at the drop of a bucket for a single purchase, including those like a recent birthday present that I have yet to receive from Bergdorf's, one that would add a couple more zeroes (e.g.: $2500.00) to your 25.00 purchase of slacks. Despite the purdaser paying for expedited shipping, Bergdofr is in the midst of a sale, not to mention that it's the holiday season, so I just accept that it'll arrive soon. I have enough to stress over in my profesional and family life., so all things in their proper place.

#4: You appraently made your purchase on the the weekend of Thanksgiving. Albeit my intent was to mail it out immediately, I was delayed by a project, and aftewards hurriied out of town to my parents house to be with my family, given the unexpected passing of my father about 2 months ago. And, I decided to spend my bithday with my mother as it arrived shortly therafter, all of which are far greater priorities for me than the $25 purchse as, to me, a little over a week is neither dire nor unreasonable.

#5: You appear to be new to SF, so might I suggest that you consider the above facts, at lesat in my case, that most people on the site are not professional retailers, at least I am not and most operate from a place of integrity and if they weren't, which would be quite unfortunate, I am sure that they are not trying to benefit from something untoward or whatever your words were in your prior message. We all have busy lives, and if you want to benefit from the best that the forum has to ffer in terms of great clothes at at fraction of thier value, don't assume the worst in peorple and, again, remember that most are selling from their personal cloests, not from the rack of a high end retailer who pays countless staff to (hopefully) expedite your deliverites in the manner in which you are purportedly accustomed.


#6: Personal names are not listed on public fora to maintain anonymity and privacy, but after a transaction is complete, you have my contact info. You could have googled me frankly, and after doing so would have quickly realized that I do need to scam anyone for $25 as you not so slightly suggests in your personal PM.

#7: (and lastly) to any new SF members who expect full retail service, please go elsewhere and do not purchase from me. I do the best that I can to give items out promptly but, again, work and family are my main priorities if I had to conder the three, the latter being SF. I operate from a place of integrity, but I don't need the hassle. It is a waste of both our time,.

Best regards,

DCPHIL,

 

I'm glad you have wonderful personal and work life. I'm truly happy for you. And I'm sorry to hear about your father. My condolences.

 

Now about our business transaction, you are absolutely correct, this is not a retail purchase. But I still expect it to happen in a respectful manner. My concern with our transaction is not due to the fact that you didn't sent out the trousers the next day, as you promised. It's due to lack of communication from you. You had time to login the forum to renew your posting, yet chose not to write me a one line message explaining the situation.

 

As for your implying that you are doing me a favor selling these pants for $25, believe me, you are not. I did not bargain with you, I paid the sum you asked. Also, your saying that a $25 transaction is somehow too small of a sum and unimportant to you is another example of unprofessionalism.

 

Finally, onto privacy matters. If you reread my post in this thread, you will realize that it contains none of your private information. I neither had nor have any intention to disclose it. This is not my first business transaction via public forum, and I am well aware of privacy matters. The reason I posted a message here is to get your attention. I've tried contacting you using private communication channels (PM and email) first. After not receiving reply, I decided to try public ones. I am quite pleased that it worked.

 

I wish you all the best.

Emerson,
I, too, am glad to have responded to your message earlier today when I could do so. Although I originally saw it while out of town on buz, I didn't warrant a response until I had the time and energy to reply to it as it felt like silly season to me. I don't recall telling you how "wonderful" my life is but, instead, I articulated in my original response that it was -- and is -- very busy due to work and family. They are my priorities, for which I am unapologetic. Period. As for the $25, let me be clear: I do not feel that I am doing you a favor by selling them to you, but I do wish that you'd put the reality of the transaction in its proper perspective. For example, it's a fact that Filenes may have nice pieces on occasion, but their service will never equal that of Louis or Saks, stores that I assume you frequent given your standards, hence the price differences. In reality I wish that I'd given the slacks away, but that is too late; however, when you write me in a PM that you becoming "suspicious of the transaction" because I did a price bump a week and the photo for the Etro slacks was still there, you are at the line of impugning my integrity which, is this instance, would be over $25. It is a fact. That said, I am perplexed by and wonder about those who automatically expect the worst in people (e.g.: pants didn't arrive in a week so something underhanded or "suspicious" must be occurring) and, as an armchair shrink, question the value system, norms and personal behavior that they themselves live by. Oh well, enough of this transaction. #7 in original message sums up my feelings.
Best,
