Just to help you out, here's what I'm willing to do. I'll send you a Western Union check for $5,000. You go ahead and cash that, then send me back what ever is left over from shipping, in cash of course, and I'll take it from there.
And just to sweeten the deal, if you do this in the next 3 days ( you know I can't do this forever, right? ), I'll have you automatically entered in a sweet Nigerian lottery deal I have been working on. Pretty certain that you'll be a winner.
Yeah, UNCLE MARKY, who's your daddy now?
Yeah, you're 100% right about "Unkie" Mark being a hoser... first time I met the guy I walk up to him in a parking lot and say "Hey, how about a beer?"
He says "SURE!!"
and I hand him an ice cold Fat Tire - right out of my ice chest! Do you think he has EVER reciprocated? HELL NO!
Dear Unkie Mark (just like the Soup Nazi): NO HONDA FOR YOU!
...and then there's his butt buddy Hoss threatening all my MY Harley butt buddies in a parking lot during a ride - but I won't EVEN go there....
TWO hosers - and they're not even CANADIANS!
Butt, back to the dilemma du jour:
I think $200.00 a month storage fee is reasonable, since that's what it would cost if I had to go out and rent a heated and cooled secured locker (which is what my garage is) to store it. I would also think that 30 days from the date of the sale is more than a reasonable time for him to pick it up - so he gets one month for free.
He has "items" that I would be more than willing to apply the amount due for storage in trade for - so I look at that as a win-win. He's not out of pocket extra cash - but can still meet a reasonable obligation at no personal cost to him. I love trading, but mostly I just want him to pick up his goods
so I don't have to stress out about it anymore. I'm kind of getting a feeling there may be some personal issues at work here (a divorce?) that may be playing into the scheme of things... I dunno, but it sure is different.
Fed Ex letter sent (good idea, thanks) with a demand to have a shipping agent pick it up within 10 days including
a promissory note for $1,000.00 in merchandise credit or I'll consider it abandoned. At that point I'll definitely need to seek a local attorney's counsel - AND - charge him for that as well.
Now, about that Nigerian lottery deal. I want IN on that bad boy. Do you take personal checks?
