I know this is something that others have raised on this thread in the past, but it seems that the stinginess of many on the B&S thread has also fallen into poor manners. I've removed the name because I don't want to identify the sender of this message, but I couldn't believe this tactless message I received last night:
I think that making an offer is perfectly acceptable. But, the way this guy comes across as curt - I don't even think his comment warrants a response.
Not sure whether the curtness was intentional though. Some people come across that way in writing without meaning to.
I was just thinking he's got skewed priorities - if all he has is $300, has has bigger issues than getting a tux.
