What a let down.....

A few months back I went to the local scrap metal bloke down my way (Mornington Peninsula) in my HR. He asked if I needed any parts, I said whadya got? He showed me a HR sedan, complete, but said he'd already promised the motor and trans to his mate. We agreed on price for the lot, and I was to ring him and work out when/where to get it etc. I called past and rang a few times, him saying "yeah, I'm still waiting on me mate". Today I went there, and all that's left is a shell. He'd given away most of what I'd hoped was my car. He knew my number, he knew I wanted the car, I thought we had a deal, only verbal of course. But doesn't it sh*t you when people go back on their word, or at least won't spend 20C for a fone call? Sorry, guys..rant over.. What do you's think?

Yeah, as I said I rang and called past a few times, but didn't want to annoy the guy. I think my last words were something like, I won't call you, just when you're ready give us a yell. He said no worries, I got your number...etc, etc..
I dunno....people...

Hmmm, you obviously live down this way... :} The guy is a nice bloke, very friendly, I just wish he'd given me a call or something... I'd never say he did anything illegal, he didn't, he was looking after his mate I think, as I spose most of us would... but... just a call?

Take what they can while they can in other words. Sell the same thing twice in other words, worry about the consequences later.

The reasoning is that the same or money can be obtained from you at a later stage by giving you less on the deal.

This seems to be the standard modus operandi of some wreckers I've dealt with, not all of them fortunately.
