    The level of flake buyers has continued to increase exponentially (maybe westside can graph this trend for me on his new TI-83?) around this place. WTF has happened? In the past month I have now had two people pay and then get back to me apologizing and asking for a refund. Then there have been a few who have committed to buying, asked for my paypal, then PM me again to change their mind. [​IMG]

    Consider yourself, lucky. If my friends cared as much about clothes and shared my size, that would be great.

    I swear members must think I'm running a retail store or something as I've been asked about return/refund policies too. I guess I can't blame them so much for asking to be fully informed, but man it is frustrating.

    assuming the items were accurately represented and it was a smooth transaction this would be a major no-go for me..

    i go through great lengths to photo and measure things to avoid shit like that.

    edit; i misread but now see what you're saying and that would just be f'ing annoying, and a major sellers dilemma..75% refund for time wasted.

    im too nice, I let someone buy my jcrew jacket and later ask that I not ship it yet because he wanted to go to a store and try on an XS before commiting, and apparently it ended up fitting better but they didnt have the right color anyways. He still asked for a refund [​IMG]

    Before shipping them I mean. "Hey, I'll take this/these" and then "Hey, OMG, I'm so sorry, it's not like me, but I've changed my mind, can I get a refund?".

    If all was as disclosed and goods are received yeah no go for me either. I have had someone aske me for a refund after receiving goods without having any issues with the item, just not sure, didn't fit or something to which I denied nicely.

    Course not. It's just a real pain, that's all.

    It kind of is. I might be out $100 or so cause bitch at the post office said I could track to Canada with priority intl customs number but I can't with the number I got. Shipped on 4th and dude said he hasn't gotten it yet, and he's moving back home to the US in a week. So right now I have no clue as to what's going on--whether it's lost, he got it but isn't telling me (I don't think this is the case at all though), or if it'll be there late or whatever. Bleh

    Yep. It must have worked.

    Lol dude should have just waited til he moved back for you to ship it, why would he want to receive something if he was in the middle of moving? I've had first class shipping take two weeks before, but that's getting pretty silly for priority

    Playing dress-up is fun. I'm all bro'd out today. Sapporo crew-neck T, Jack & Jones destroyed relaxed fit jeans (I dated a girl who owned a denim factory in Guang Dong, they were a gift from her), and white chucks. I need to buy some flip-flops to really hit my stride, though.

    edit: almost forgot to put on my ray-ban aviators. Later neeeeeeerds!
