smoke-and-iron asked: I'm sorry what? You went on that date in Texas I think it was and then he had the payment reversed? WTF???
In JUNE, I raised almost $5,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project via a Charity Date Auction (I donated 50% of the proceeds and the rest went towards having a high quality canvas produced, a last minute flight to AZ, rental car for a week, losing a week’s worth of work to fly out of NY state) - Flew to Tucson AZ, went on an eight hour date (which was a bit of a mess … dog barfed in car, went hiking and lost the trail, my purse was stolen with my rental car keys …) - Gave him a less stressful *second* date a few days later, over dinner at the CheeseCake Factory and it was quite nice and enjoyable - I paid for dinner and all was fine and Dandy … I *thought* we left on good terms…..
But yeah - Six weeks later, he tried to reverse the payment. I got a notice from Ebay that the Buyer was claiming that the item was “Not as Described” and he wanted his money back. I was just FLOORED. $2,500 of that money went towards Charity that I could NOT get back. The other half went towards travel and flights and bills…. I was SO upset. Kept worrying that Ebay would reverse the Payment and I would owe $5,000 (which would take me months to pay off….)
Anyways - The stress of that situation really resonated with me - It was more trouble and more stress than it was worth…. won’t be doing it again.
