Default One bad apple ....

... doesn't spoil the basket.

Having recently had a bad experience purchasing an item from a member, it didn't dissuade me from trusting another. I purchased the highway pegs from toejam who has not only promptly shipped them but has even provided a tracking number for me. Although I haven't received them as yet, I have no doubt they will be "as advertised".

Thanks @toejam !

I have been buying tons of parts for my 73 enduro resurrection on fleabay and had a carb slide part not show up. Seller made it right by sending me another but the original part finally showed up, a month later! I promptly sent it back to him.

It got miss sorted. Mistakes happen. They all have a lot of packages to sort and a limited time to do it. Maybe the address is wrong. I get a lot packages that have incorrect addresses on them. I wonder how many people say you suck at your job.

I have a funny story.... I sold a lowered kickstand to a member on here. The first time my sales assistant sent it with some snowbike parts I asked her to send to Colorado for me. I got it back and then sent it off to NY via Canada Post... 3 weeks went by and it still had not been delivered. I tracked it and the last place it had been seen was a customs sorting facility in Flint Michigan. I got a hold of USPS and they found the package, shipping label had come off. I asked USPS if they could send it off to its destination... It showed up back at my house yesterday! Wtf?

Travis, sounds like you got your money's worth out of that shipping cost. LOL
I had a rear shock drop shipped for a customer to my house so I could install it for him. It was ordered from Hagon. Shipped from Calif to Fla. So whatcha figure 4 days? Well 8 days later it still wasnt here. It went from Calif to Jacksonville Fla. I live almost dead center in Fla. Then it shipped to Orlando, so watching shipping I'm thinking it should be here in next day or so. Then it went to Tampa, then Lake land. Sit a day or so, then back to Calif. I dunno what the heck was up with that thing. Then they shipped 2 day.
