I bought a newer truck so I'm trying to sell my old one.  I had it out front and I had a lady come buy and agree to buy it.  Appearantly, it's gonna be for her son for work.  She left me a check for $800 and I told them to come back today with $800 cash and they'd get their check back.  The lady said she and her son would be back today at 0800 to pick it up.  It's now 0930 and they're nowhere to be seen.  I forgot to get a phone number because I just assumed one would be on the check.  My mistake.  No number.  They're not in the book either.  So, what do I do?  Wait all day?  Do I sign the title and cash the check and leave the truck at the address on the check?  

Why can't people just do what they say they're gonna do?

Cuz the boys in the hood are always hard
Come talkin' that trash and we'll pull your card
Knowin' nothin' in life but to be legit,
Don't quote me boy, I ain't said shit

no one is held accountable for their actions, unless it's people like you or me.

shitstains and dirtbags can do as they please and no one gives a fuck (or they'll play some 'discrimination' card)

Is the asking price for the truck $800? If not, the truck is still for sale to the person who brings the full cash amount for it.

On vehicle purchases, full cash amount on hand or no sale. I've tried to be the nice guy with vehicle sales, not worth it. You'll get screwed.

More or less everyone runs their own agendas with no regard to anything other than what's on their mind right now. And with attention spans all of about two seconds they could have been distracted by a small shiny object or one of the hundreds of mundane text messages they send and receive all day. I'd just not cash the check and leave the truck up for sale since they stood you up.

That check would probably bounce like a damn basketball.  

I would just forget about the whole thing and sell it to someone else.

On the other hand, maybe the car they do have broke down this morning and they can't get anywhere.



Shit does happen.

Does this truck happen to be a fresh el camino?

People in the "information age" can't communicate, return a call, notify you of their actions.

People today are absolutely unconcerned about anything near their peripheral vision.  You are apparently outside of their blinders.  Endemic of a society that destroys its future for a more pleasant today and foolishly ignorant piece of mind.

Some people have always been unreliable.  That is their character.

When towns were smaller and people moved less it was more common to know who those people were by their dealings with others.

Now we sometimes have to learn from our own experiences.

They're unreliable because they can still make it. Only when they see the outcome of being lame and lazy and it hurts will people start to get it.

Just for fun, call the bank and see if the check is any good.

This is a stick up
everybody get face down
Wren gag their mouths so they can't make a sound
Tie em up for the fact that I'm kickin ass
I got my hand on my gat, and i'm tempted to blast



You guys started it


ETA: That shit is still stuck in my head

I personally could give a rats ass cause that means more employment/money making opportunities for me.

I visit alot of businesses doing my job and I'm amazed at how unreliable people are even when they're supposed to be on someone else's time.

Well, turns out the lady called and said they'd be by at 0930 tomorrow to pick it up, so all hope is not yet lost.  I don't need the money immediately and I don't mind sitting on it for another day.  I just wish they called before they were three hours late.
