'Sold' something ( fairly large!) on facebook over 2 months ago and tried to re arrange collection a number of times / waited in for then but they didn't show/ respond to my messages so I ended up having to re sale it ... they are now angry because they now want to collect the item and can't understand why I didn't keep it for them well over two months later,

AIBU?

did they pay for it 2 months ago?

jumpingjellybeann Mon 24-Apr-17 17:29:28

No they didn't pay for it.

YANBU.

Crunchymum Mon 24-Apr-17 17:30:18

Did you let them know you were reselling?

jumpingjellybeann Mon 24-Apr-17 17:30:56

Told them that if they didn't respond to me soon that I would resale as I needed it gone.

They're a twat. YANBU

VelvetThunder Mon 24-Apr-17 17:32:07

Nope yanbu

Thankyou,

I was mad enough to keep it for as long as I did I think :/ but now they are very angry and giving me a hard time about it!

I am always selling things on Facebook / eBay and I am now worried that they will ruin all of my 5* reviews!

2 months?! If i sold something locally on fb etc I'd expect it gone and sold within about 2 days. You've been reasonable now tell them to fuck off.

They're a dickhead. Yanbu x

😂 nope yanbu! Not quite the same but a builder left a massive pile of bricks in my garden when he repointed and did gutter. I left them for a couple of months and then got rid- he turned up four months later asking for them 😂😂 erm, I'm not your personal storage facility....!

YAB so NU. 2 months!

Oh, they're "very angry," are they? Sounds like someone can dish it but not take it.

Tosser buyers on FB, just one of the reasons I've left FB. One woman got cross with me I wouldn't deliver to various places when ad clearly said collection. Too many mind-changers who then ignore all contact. And omg adverts saying 'Chester draws' who the fuck is Chester? And too many 'huns' I'm not your fucking Hun, you're a poorly educated chancer pissing me about. FB, ugh.

YANBU. I just put a couple of blinds up for free on our local bargains page. The buyer wanted me to deliver them. 5 miles away. I said no and gave them to next in queue. She was furious.
Some folks Eh?

NellieFiveBellies Mon 24-Apr-17 18:01:39

tell them not to be so bloody stupid.

Janey50 Mon 24-Apr-17 18:01:40

I just hate it when prospective buyers do this. They twat about endlessly then are outraged when you eventually lose patience and sell it to someone else. So no,YANBU.

They can't leave you a review if they didn't buy it can they confused

jumpingjellybeann Mon 24-Apr-17 18:05:22

They can't leave a review no, but they can ( and have) put a post about me selling the item to someone else on the selling site ' to warn' people about me :/ they didn't even tell them I have been waiting over two months for them to collect!

Pumperthepumper Mon 24-Apr-17 18:08:45

I just gave away a large piece of furniture on Facebook on a local page, clearly stating it was collection only from my house. Had loads of people asking if I would deliver (no offer of petrol money or suggestions on how I'd get a wardrobe-sized thing into my car) and one asking if I could hold it until the end of the month, then arrange for it to be couriered to Spain. People are a total pain in the arse on these pages. And so few people say please or thank you!

NellieFiveBellies Mon 24-Apr-17 18:09:31

i hope youve added that important bit of information!
