View Full Version : WWMD?? (maggot ethics, please reply)
10-08-2003, 10:48 AM
As many of you may have noticed I have been continually trying to get ahold of rightcoast for the past week. 3-4 weeks ago he told me he wanted to buy a jacket and flexons from me, and that he would be sending me a check for those goods "in a few days". Well its been a while and I still haven't recieved the money from him, and my emails/messages on both boards have recieved no reply.
I need the money for the gear, but if he finally does come through and have a legitimate reason for not responding to me then I don't really want to screw him over by re-selling the stuff to someone else. WWMD??? Re-sell or wait a little longer?

Give him a chance. Shit happens sometimes. Rightcoast is a good dude, and he'll come through either way.
Sometimes patience and ethics aren't mutually exclusive.

If you're going to wait a little longer to give him the benefit of the doubt (a good idea I think), you may want to edit his name out of your post just in case it all works out in the end. Then no harm done, on your pocketbook or his reputation.
Just my 2 yen worth

I really don;t see any harm in it the way it is...is it really that bad to be bit of a flake? Prolly par for the course.

Can't argue with that.

Try paging Kush+Hardrider too. They ski with the kid all the time and I bet they have his number

I was never trying to question his ethics, but thought it would be unethical on my part to re-sell the gear without hearing from him. He is a good dude (we met at the first summit) and I trust him, but my own financial distress has made me ancy to sell off some gear.
I don't see any reason to edit his name out of this post, he never did anything wrong, I just couldn't get in touch with him and didn't know what to do. He did just email me though and all has been worked out...so if Tom Ridge asks abou Rightcoast I can vouch for him, he is and always had been a solid, trustworthy maggot.
(not to mention that this situation was made way more confusing with the board switching fiasco)
