Shit happens but you always have to communicate with the buyer no matter the circumstances. The entire thing seems like a misunderstanding that has been resolved.
i had no way of getting ahold of him, if you see my fs thread, my car broke down out of town, and while i did have my phone it didn't have internet access. only text based emails. if he had emailed me questioning the status he would have known. upon arriving back in town on the 23rd (less than 5 business days since purchase) after calling fedex for a pickup (the fenders in question) i see an email is my junk folder from oct23rd 3:34am stating he's reporting me to paypal and did so a few hours later. never before then had he emailed about the fenders, or waited for a reply as paypal even states to do.
the buyer also failed to mention that yes, i did communicate a lot on the date of purchase. only because communication about the fenders had been back and forth for 3 weeks or more. stating he'll get in touch with me no later than the 16th. so i contacted him on the 17th about them. another thing he didn't mention is that due to me not being a daily user, on occasion basic communication regarding the fenders were at times 5+ days apart, he seemed to be patient then.. so what changed?
all in all, patience would have definitely been in everyone's favor as this is still being sorted out.
what's also sad is that he would have either received the fenders today the 25th or tomorrow. now it's being delayed even more.
