Saw a great bike on Gumtree, good price. Me: Hi, is it possible to come see this bike and if I like it, buy it tonight? Seller: Sure, I don't get in till 8:00 though. Me: Can I come see it at around 8:30? You're only a few miles away. Seller: Sure, sounds good. See you then. 35 minutes later... Seller: Hi, I've had a firm offer for the bike. Thanks for your interest' What? Who arranges a meeting and then cancels out like that? I'd gotten all excited, thinking about what I was going to change about the bike and that I was going to make it to the forum ride.
