I happily took $110 for it and saw it on the guys table for the 3 next Hersheys for $150. I converted his money into beer. There are some folks that beg and beg and we soon figure out who they are. The ones I love are those who ask me to hold a piece for them without paying. You know "Hold it for me, I'll pick it up later" guy: I'm glad to put it back if the $$ are in my pocket. The 28 Ford phaeton I have for sale has 3 guys telling me it is sold, but it ain't gone so it is for sale. This is a hobby so do what you are comportable with.
You are too good wise/smart for this hobby and I am with you..especially regarding the beer! If anyone sells/gives to a 'friend' then complains...what the heck?? If anyone here sells to other than a friend, at an agreed upon price, yeah...quit bitchen,eh! I'm a terrible buyer and seller and have "buyers/sellers remorse" all the time. But, it's all on ME...not some one else!!
