    COMPLETED: Apology to forum members

    Hammock forum members, I have screwed up and I am sorry. I was messaged by several members with interest in the BB I had for sale. One member was the first to say he wanted to buy it. He and I exchanged a few messages about details and my paypal account. He sent a final message with a few more questions and I typed a response and assumed that I sent it but he did not receive it and now I cannot find a copy in my sent box.

    In the meantime I had not heard back from him mid-morning today and assumed that he was no longer interested. In the meantime another member pm'ed me this morning to buy. I sent him my paypal account and he immediately sent the funds. Shortly after I received an email that member number one had sent me the funds.

    This is a screw up that I am not comfortable with. I feel that it is unfair to member number one but then again member number two sent funds in good faith. Member number one was first in line but I assumed that he was hesitating. I have a dilemma that I do not think the King Solomon trick will work.

    Again I am so sorry. This is the greatest site with some of the best people.

    Talk with each and see if one is willing to "pass" on this sale, considering.

    It's all good.

    In my personal opinion, I think the best thing to do might be to apologize w/ explanation to member #2 & refund his money.
    Then send the merchandise to member #1.
    Hopefully member #2 will be understanding & forgiving.

    Your concern and regret is valid . . .

    . . . in my neck of the woods

    the first to the door with cash walks away happy.

    I would look at the PM that lead you to send a Paypal request
    and try to ascertain the level of commitment . . .
    . . . as sometimes we step away from our PC and rejoin our nondigital life.

    I do not envy your situation . . . and like that you brought it forth.

    I will Hope and pray all involved come away happy . . .

    PS. I guess the take home lesson is we don't need to be in a rush to sell here.

    Just to be clear, I'm not suggesting that as a moderator... just my first thought personally.
    Hopefully #1 & #2 will be understanding of some solution & make it a non issue

    Well I have refunded member #2's money and am sending the hammock to member #1. Member #2 is a victim of my impatience and I am truly sorry. Member #1 is a victim of my type a personality. I realize that I cannot make both perfectly happy but member #1 was the first to ask for my paypal account. He cannot be penalized for the time zone difference and for my ineptitude.

    Thanks everyone for your input. Bottom line is I have live with my conscious and while this decision is not perfect, it is the one that I feel best with.

    Again thanks everyone.
