    WOW, this is hilarous. Just the facts for a moment. Josiah purchased 7 wild canary cheek from me, Africa sent Ulwile by accident and I should have but didnt catch it and sent them to him. As soon as he told me I told him I would take care of it, it was covered no worries, it was fri and the weekend I take off to spend alittle time with my family. He kept posting and calling and it took 48hrs for me to give the refund in full. Why did it take 48hrs Greg? Because I told him I would try to work something out if he was open to it so I checked with some of my customers in Hou to see if they would like the fish at cost so I could save the shipping. Josiah seemed impatient and thats fien so talked with him, asked what woudl make him happy and he ask what I would sel them for, I ask if he would like to keep them to cover his $48 shipping and I would refund everything else in full, he said yes this would make him happy and so it was done. I have never or will never left anyone out to dry on a purchase they werent happy about, I always do the right thing, its just good business. Now I realize some are looking for more (drama), but just wanted to atleast let you have my side, cant help if you want to make it something its not, atleast you got the facts now.

    On this note the thread should be locked, probably moved to it's appropriate section as well.

    If you go back to the original post made about the fish, I wasn't the one being impatient. It was the other members telling me I should be more aggressive. This is pathetic. I can't win for losing. I tried to sell the fish for $210 so Greg wouldn't have to lose money on the deal but I'm the monster. Oh well. Stay thirsty my friends.

    beta. you are trying to say that you acted impatient because WE told you to? think for yourself, stop trying to pass the blame onto the community. you would get more respect if you would deserve it.

    So did you refund Greg the difference after taking your cut for shipping/time?

    Anyone who read my sell thread know it was hijacked and turned into something I didn't intend for it to be. And for more facts, the shipping was $58, not $48 and I tried to help Greg. When I told him I got the wrong fish, he said he had several options and one was giving them to me at a discount that was undisclosed. He also commented on trophs.com asking if anyone in Houston wanted some Ulwile. So instead of waiting for Greg to refund, I was gonna try to sell them at the cost I payed so we both would be satisfied in the end. I was trying to do him a favor. That's when everyone started saying it wasn't my responsibility and Greg should be responsible for everything. I even made a comment plain as day ,"I would highly recommend Greg to anyone and I plan on doing business with him in the future." As soon as I got refunded, I dropped the price on the fish to make it cheaper for anyone interested. I did ask for more than shipping because time was wasted and I still didn't get the fish I wanted. I took off work early to pick the fish up.

    And for anyone who read the entire thread, people were bashing me and Greg, not me. People were saying there shouldn't have been a delay. Greg and I talked on the phone after the situation, even talked today. He apologized to me because he did tell me he would get with me that same day and kept putting it off. He explained that he shouldn't have told me he would get with me those days he promised, because reality was, he was too busy. I didn't know that, so what am I supposed to expect when someone tells me they are calling in a few hours and the call never comes? I believe I acted the way any of us would. Most of my comments were, "I don't know what's going on, Greg is emailing me and not calling me." I NEVER said I won't do business with him again or anything of the sort. Apparently HFB is split between people who agree with me, people who disagree with me, and those like AwkaB and Ally, who agree with me when it's appropriate, and disagree with me when it's appropriate. I can care less about people clicking a "Thanks" button. I state my mind and my opinion and I don't say things to try to gain friendships and cudos from people who don't matter to me. Maybe if you guys stop hijacking threads, this type of stuff wouldn't happen. Regardless of what anyone on here says, Gene called me and asked me if I wanted him to delete it because the thread got carried away with irrelevant comments. I will admit that after the second or third day of waiting, there was a sense of impatience, because Greg was emailing me instead of calling me and since it was my first time dealing with him, I didn't know what to expect, but in no form or fashion did I bash him and I never said one negative word about Greg on the first two days.

    Nothing Greg said was different than my post except for the mistake in shipping quote. Everyone knows when I contacted Greg and when I was refunded. I didn't think everything had to be spelled out for some to know it was a 2-3 day delay. People wanna comment on something and pretend they know all the facts, but when the facts are presented, they can't read well enough to process the information given. I am in no way a biased person and I don't take sides. So all of the comments making me out to be the bad person should be directed at yourselves and towards the people who always steer threads in the wrong direction.
