A few years back I tried giving away a bunch of stuff on LXF. All I asked was to cover my shipping costs, that's it not a dime more. A lot of the stuff I had was fluid bottles so the boxes where big and shipping was maybe $30. I kept getting responses like that's too much, I'll pay you $20 shipped. I tossed everything in the fucking trash and stopped selling anything.

some people are crap to deal with, but some of us are have no problem paying when we know we are getting a deal. OSO, thought we had a deal worked out for ported apache heads and valve covers but then you never messaged me back to let me know when they were ready, just sayin. so I gave my money to Erik @BFNY.

I am on board for sure. I am not sure why, but I negotiate all fucking day for work, when it comes to car parts, I just usually pay the asking price and be done with it. I get pissed when others try to negotiate with me, my parts are usually priced to sell.

You want to see cheap ass people.... Just look at the class A RV folks I deal with. They buy a $200,000 RV then piss and moan about $55 for a fuel filter adapter that will allow then to buy a $10 fuel filter at any auto parts store or even Wal Mart. They will save the old for a spare instead of buying one from me for $7! Are you fucking kidding me.  

 

Then we have the Canadians ... Some will ask me to fudge the cost or send as a gift so they don't get nailed at customs. No way... Just what i need customs or the IRS breathing down my neck especially when I use to be their Tech Support guy when I worked for Dell.

Really?  Just because you have a few people try to pay less duty dont count that as the way the whole country is.  I do a lot of mail order from Canada to the US and I get the exact same requests.  There are going to be people trying to save a buck no matter what country they are from.  You almost cant blame them the way things are these days.  By the time your done paying all the bills there is no money left over for hobbies.

Save a buck at my expense... No way. Its obvious you have never had to deal with State Sales Tax, the IRS or US Customs as a business owner. They could give a shit less if the customer wanted save few bucks on customs... You broke the law so it you who pays the fine or goes to jail. I am sure you would step to the plate and pay my fine and take full responsibility. lmao
