Of course, and there are circumstances where arguments over a pack of gum have resulted in extreme results.

 

If we didn't have people who stood up for principles, we would all have a British accents (no offense Klob...). We would still be segregated..etc etc.

 

 

Extremists and non-extremists can both stand up for similar principles (MLK / Malcolm X).

 

For the sake of irony, I will leave with a quote, "A man who stands for nothing, falls for anything" (or something like that...) nest.gif

Aren't PO boxes locked specifically with a key too? So this asshole is claiming that someone else picked up this suit from HIS PO box with that said key...? No, it doesn't work that way. Since this idiot already decided "Hey! I got an idea to put all my personal information on a sticky note on my desk, why not leave my PO box key too?!" AND even if someone did steal his keys, wouldn't it be very difficult to figure out which box was the one you're looking for? The PO boxes are numbered, the keys are not. AND how did the 'alleged' thief know which post office to go too? World's smartest thief? Nope! World's dumbest criminal.

 

Can I donate some money to you, Eddie? We need 23 people to donate $100... or 46 people to donate $50... STAT!

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME????

oh my god. the audacity. most people, they are crooks, and they steal from you then slink off. yet you are so brazen you actually come back here and act like you are the victim. you are a pathetic excuse for a human being. i hope eddievdr sells me the debt so i can fly to where ever you are and knee cap you personally.

I want some of that action too. Fucking loser.

1. It's a $2300 TF suit, not the American Revolution and not the Civil Rights Movement.

2. The cost basis of said TF suit was definitely less than $2300.

3. Throwing another 1k just for your principles would surely exceed said cost basis.

4. I'm sorry it happened like this.

5. I respect Dolfan's "We don't negotiate with terrorists" attitude.  smile.gif

Did I ever post this puppy? Got around to taking the rest of the photos. It has a couple of really tiny stains that the cleaners were unable to get out. It's all cotton, so I wonder if I could oxyclean those areas and hand wash it. I think it would fetch a decent amount on ebay, but maybe I would regret selling it in the long run. The sleeve width is gargantuan, otherwise I would have already decided to keep it.

I nominate MartiniGirl for the positions of Prosecutor and Town Crier.

Just so we're clear, saying he was scammed out of over 2k isn't adding value on principle it is essentially a gain that could predicably be realized. Not cost basis but real nonetheless. Value of the item is the market rate.

That's awesome! Now we need more of you to do so!

Just got home from work to read the rest of this shit storm. I'm thinking dude will just return the suit after reading the last 100 posts or so. Sorry Eddie, this shit fucking sucks. On another note, I had a GOOD trade with our respectable member Ocoony, dude is a seriously great guy. This came in the mail for me yesterday. I plan on swapping out the brass buttons with horn. Talk about fuck you!

Wife crammed my newly crippled (handicapped if you prefer) ass into the car yesterday and I hit a thrift for the first time in 6 weeks. Spoils were meager: Polo cord jacket, Getz/Gilberto on vinyl - but fun was had.

Just listened to that before work today (also a thrift find), one of my favorite albums.

I don't have anything to brag - but I think that expectation's been temporarily lifted:

I resorted to threatening to expose this individual (who also, I found, had an active arrest warrant) I was going to post all the info on here unless he sent the jacket or my money. Long story short, he ended up coming out of the dark and sent the jacket so I never had to post it all. But it took almost three months to get it resolved and I honestly believe it wouldn't have turned out right unless I resorted to that threat.

Carry on.

I suspect I know who this member is. Maybe I've been too nice (in the morning I may PM you to ask what threats were effective, see below for why "in the morning." Then again, I'm only writing off two bits or a tweed jacket.

But I bet you can still find some of that on the banned ebay buyers list.

Awww, Spoo's posting while drinking again. Not that there's a glass of wine next to my laptop or anything.

How dare you guys post your thrift finds in the midst of the passionate talks of principles, extreme measures, English accents, burden of proof, and angry mob mentality!

 

JK JK! lol8[1].gif

 

Damn, Ezy, you gotta do a thrift pic in that FU SC! Wow!
