Anyone who has asked me to collect items for them.....

Postby SteveD » 05 Mar 2012 14:15

Rather than PM everyone involved, could I just ask that anyone who has asked me to pick items up for them this weekend (mainly Baron figures and the book) PLEASE Paypal me the required amounts IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS as a gift?

Two reasons:-

1. That is the only way I can get the money cleared into my account so I can withdraw it as cash to take this weekend and pay for the items for you. Without it cleared I will be eating into my funds for the weekend and that I'm not prepared to do.

2. I need to let Baron know in advance how many items I am collecting and for whom.

If folks don't send me the moeny through then I'm sorry lads - I'm not collecting your items and posting them on.

Based on what folks have asked me to pick up, and the lack of funds yet sent, as things stand at this moment I would be expected to pay over £100 out cash for items for other people - something I'm not prepared to do.

So come on lads - play fair - I'm doing this as favours for people, so I shouldn't have to be putting a post up like this to chase payments!

Can we haggle? I'll give you 1 minute? And then you need to learn to read quicker.

No, wait, damn it! I'm sh*t at this negotiating lark!

Deal!! (you never said which toys - you've just bought the sh*tty ones that live in my cupboard at work. Including the "wind up funny puppys" (one box of 12) and the 'Wind Up Lady Bugs' whose box excitingly describes them as having:-
"Long running wind up mechanism
Sturdy design
Novelty action
and (last but not least:-)
Lovely appearance"

Shall I bring them me next week end? And you can bring me a shiny 20p coin?

oh, and for those interested - the Lady Bugs come in red, yellow & green. The dogs just come in dalmation.

And am I the only one who seems to find "Lady Bug" amusing.....
