While no one is perfect and there are times when life gets in the way or circumstances slow you down, there is NO EXCUSE for not contacting people who have paid you for items in advance and months go by with no word, no items and not so much as a Kiss Off. Well I am sick of it so I am advising everyone on BYC of these issues and the individuals involved. On May 29, 2009, I paid for 10 chicken saddles to the tune of $25 from Moodene. Well here it is November and not one single word from her and no saddles. In June I paid $25 plus shipping for checkbook covers. Not a word and no items. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=202071 Aug 5th I sent $20 + shipping to amarook for a sign for my duck house....no sign, no contact from her whatsoever since she requested pics of another one of my ducks, but she is posting here in the forum all the time. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=227160&p=1 So, unless I know the member personally, I will no longer purchase items from BYC members. Frankly, I am tired of being shafted. I return you to your regular scheduled programming...have a nice day.
