I had this one lady give away an item that I had already told her I was going to get at a certain time. She told me to just let her know when I was on my way. I was soooo excited to get this free item that I had to ask my boyfriend if I can borrow the truck since I have a small car. All was good until the app notified me about the item being sold.... I thought it was a mistake since we had agreed on me taking it. But when I messaged the lady she told me that someone had already taken it!!! I was so upset! I thought it was rude and unethical. I mean, had she told me before hand that she didn't want to hold it for me and/or if someone else was able to get it before me, I'd understand, you know, first come, first serve. But our deal was nothing of that sort. It was us two agreeing on me getting the item after I was off work. This person was rude too, saying "too bad, yo" and "this is how it works".... in my prior experiences, every single time, I am told and POLITELY that there will be no holds or that someone else is already is picking up the item BUT if they don't come thru, that I'm next in line. But this person didn't do that all! what do you guys think? Should the seller notify the 1st person that they want to give their item to someone else who's coming sooner? Or should they tell you after they have already sold it?
