I've sold my CD player to a local buyer...he came and tested the player, it worked fine and sounded wonderful to him.
He paid cash on the spot and went home happily....

He called me the next day saying that the player cannot read his disc (it did happened to me a few times before but were OK for the past few weeks b4 I decided to sell)....and he must be frustrated that a new toy would not work the way it should be...

Luckily the player still have warranty coverage and I dug out the receipts and ask him to bring to the shop for warranty claim...

How a nice guy he is and thank me for a few times and saying it's really nice dealing with me and would not hesitate to buy from me again if I have anything that he wanted. :p

If you guys were him...would you piss off?? :p

I personally would not be happy, but it would be in great part because I hate dealing with warrenties and stuff. Good for you it play out smoothly.

Ah! The full disclosure debate. Sounds like someone's seeking affirmation.

Hmmm? Let's see. I've sold musical instuments and amplifiers, lots of paintings, several cars, a few houses, a business and a couple of horses. I'm sure I told the buyers everything I would have wanted to know. Yep. That's exactly how I remember it. I'm sure of it ;-)

And yes, I think you were very successful at getting him to "piss off." As to whether or not he was pissed off, too, well...

Maybe it's just me, but that isn't a story I'd be particulary proud of (selling a known defective player to someone).

In any case, the buyer would only be pissed off if he found out that you knew the player was bad before you sold it to him. Without that knowledge, though, it would "appear" that you are actually helping him out. If you did tell him the player was defective before he bought it then, no, he would have no reason to be pissed off.

Did the buyer ask you about the condition of the CDP?

It's kinda like when I stink up a men's room in 7.1 at a nice restaurant. I'm always afraid that later, someone's gonna recognize my shoes.

So far, in BobKay's month on the boards, I've noticed that he's not shy about sharing all kinds of interesting things.

Welcome, BlobKay, you're fitting right in.
