I've had nearly 300 RIR chicks for sale for nearly 2 weeks now. Last week, this lady contacted me, said she and 3 other friends wanted to go together to purchase chicks from me. They wasted an entire afternoon for me by constantly calling to tell me what they wanted. Finally settled on 238 chicks, with most of those being RIR's with some Barred Rocks and EE's tossed in. I told them the price was $2 each and they agreed to it. They were supposed to pick them up today at noon. Two of the people who wanted some of the 238 chicks changed their minds! I've been holding chicks for them all week!! The other 2 people paid had for theirs, but since all 4 were going in together, and they were buying ALL that I had, they asked me to give them a discount. I knocked a good chunk of change off the top of their total, and they said OK we'll bring xx amount tonight, please hold them until Saturday. This morning the one lady calls me and she's livid. Said that 2 people backed out on them, didn't tell them until today, and she's so upset because she knows I could have had the chicks sold. She kept apologising, says she feels really bad about it, and asked if she could still come pick up hers and the other persons chicks up. I said sure. I tell you, she gets here and she's breathing flames! She and I agreed that the discount was now void, and we figured how many chicks she could get for the money she had paid. I offered to let her take the chicks she originally wanted at the discounted price, but she refused, insisted it wasn't fair to me since I had to feed them the extra week, etc. She had called the other guy and said, "You paid x amount so you're only getting x amount of chicks." I was ROTFL because she really was more upset than I was. I did tell her on the phone before she came out that I was not going to refund any money that was paid down on the chicks, especially since I had held them all week. She agreed with me and said you shouldn't refund anything! She was worried that this was going to reflect on her and she didn't want a bad deal between us, as she wants to purchase from me again later. I told her no worries, I will sell the chicks left over to someone else, and that I hoped she enjoyed her chicks. She left here muttering a few expletives aimed at her "Friends" who didn't follow through. I couldn't help but laugh. Really, I couldn't be upset, as she was upset enough for 10 people! As she was pulling out, she rolled down her window and hollered an apology to my husband as well, and said she was really sorry for the inconvience.
