" i would of done the Christan  thing and given him the $100  heck it's a $2500  couch."
Heck, with that line of thinking you should have given him $2500. He probably could have used it.

...  I would of done the Christan  thing and given him the $100  heck it's a $2500  couch.

If I gave somebody a price, even if I made a mistake, I would stick with the deal.  If you want to bring Christianity into it, then "let your yes be yes and your no be no.  Someone's word should be their bond.  They did do the right thing by selling me the couch for the quoted price, even if it was by mistake.

Actually, it was worth exactly $300.00.

This is my own opinion.
I believe that the guy should have honored the 300 dollar deal without any fuss. Now with that said I would have not posted any of that on this board. This post has nothing to do with buses and has all to to with complaning about some guy that sold a couch. I would have like to hear the positive about you getting a new couch and getting a good deal, but instead you choose to flame the guy.

Well I thought it was an interesting story.  The lesson... Make sure you actually say out loud the dollar amount agreed upon to eliminate any chance of a mixup.

Good story Marc Wink Keep em' comin'. I for one thought it was a pretty positive that you did get a new sofa, and the lesson learned, is that given adversity( a grumpy wife) some folks( the seller) will still do what is right, good for Marc, and a harty thumbs up for the sellers wife. Integrity, still a good concept.  Wink still waiting for some pix though. Kiss

  The responsibility falls entirely on the seller, and he knew it. As for sharing it, its a good lesson to share. When you give someone a price, make darn sure your clear on which ad your dealing with.

  Marc did the right thing by making a stand, and the seller did the right thing by honoring his word. So it all worked out.

Let's see now... $300 for the couch, fuel both ways, Mark's time for a whole day, engine wear, tire wear, etc. etc.... Looks like a $2500 deal to me. Wink

Nope.  Still paying full price like most everyone else, just take it in the shorts and move on.  Haven't lost anything that I know of in Alaska as far as I know.

When I built my bus, I took four chairs and a couch to the upholstery shop and had them re-done.  The job done to my satisfaction came in almost five weeks past the appointed finish date, we sat down and talked about it, and the owner forgave just about what Marc paid for his single couch.  He took $325 off the final bill for inconveniencing me and not meeting the agreed upon date.

Point?

Marc treated the guy better than I would have it's just me but 300 bucks is to much for a 5 year old couch used or not, and probably is made of ultra/leather and time takes a toll on that material as well as wear.
I don't see anything wrong in the deal myself except the woman getting PO and that is her fault not Marc's and his wife


good luck

The Christian thing for desi to do is quit stirring the pot. Give it a rest. The majority of your comments are really not contributing to anything other than making yourself feel like your opinion is important. Forgive me for expressing my opinion but I can honestly say I have learned absolutely nothing from any of your posts.
