And he gave you no reason for the wait?? seems fishy, but hey you are getting paid so who cares!!

I commend you, Lou, on handling it the way you did. I saw a thread that was many, many, many pages on another forum related to a bike I recently bought that was kind of upsetting. A guy sold another guy a part (tires, I believe) and didn't uphold his end of the deal. Well, the fallout was phenomenal and, actually, somewhat epic in proportion.

Basically, the buyer and several members essentially publicly filleted the guy. They found the guy on other sites of a sexual nature - apparently the guy was bi-sexual. They contacted the guy's in-laws. It was way, way, way over the top. Of course, there were 50 to 85 pages of commentary on the guy, so it was that much worse.

Finally, the guy returned to find all the crap that had been smeared on him and he actually had a somewhat decent explanation, although it had been quit some time.

Anyway, good for you for being above that kind of stuff. Glad it worked out for you, too!

Maybe he saw this thread and finally got his head on straight.

I trust people. Occasionally, I get burned. My trust is a reflection on me, not on them. Call me a sucker, but I refuse to become untrusting because some are untrustworthy.

Lincoln said, "Sir, I will treat you as a gentleman. Not because you are one, but because I am one."

I dig that.
