I did not realise upon joining that a donation was required, which i apologise for and I have since becoming aware made a donation immediately after realising I should. It would be nice if people like yourself were not so quick to jump up and assume nasties about other posters and claim things about them that arent so as you appear to be doing here, with me.
I am not in the habit of not sticking to my word, nor not doing the right thing or, if a requirement is needed, agree by saying yes then skipping out on it. . If I have unintentionally done something i should no9t have as is the case here, I have rectified it as soon as I was made aware, and realised. Whilst I need to sell things I wanted the things I have been left with to be sold to people who would actually value these things and put them to good use. I haven't sold anything whatsoever yet.
Perhaps you, ababada, would think about why some people need to sell their stuff in the first place....whats their story?.....other than in your opinion trying to make a quick buck on the sly and weedle out of not donating to a deserved charity when that's a requirement of selling......the background of this stuff for sale was The other director of this family company strategically personally bankrupted, resigned as a director 2 days before payday, in addition to forcing the company in thousands of pounds worth of debt. Also removed thousands of pounds worth of equipmenmt and cash to tide himself and the employee and his kids and family over whilst they set up another shop in the same town doing the same thing. Why?. simply to punish and effectively rob me of a share in the business that I was willing to sell at a reasoable price that he did'nt want to pay. That same director has happily abandoned 5 minor children, left me to clean up a deliberately shiprecked company that was running for decades, simply to ensure as he has said himself that his children and the mother of those children would be left with nothing. He's already opened up another shop a stones throw away forced me to loose my job, and thinks £20 a week is enough for 5 children to live on and the food from the foodbank will last forever and isn't really nessesary as they dish it out willy nilly to anyone and theres no cutbacks there at all. To cut a long story short I am now in proper legal posession of whats left and unlike some people in this world, am acting with integrity, to repay the biz debts and hope there is some money left over which is not guaranteed but the best shot i have at this time whilst I find another job......after paying legal fees etc etc.
I'm not familiar with this forum, and the way it runs, and I apologise when I offended anyone by not immediately donating, I should have read the guidelines properly when I joined rather than speed reading them and that's absolutely on me. I did read some of the posts before I put mine up to see if it was the kind of place to sell these items, which it seemed to be. I was at the time very happy to have found somewhere that appeared knowledgable, friendly, locksmith orientated and had a selling area, because I wanted the stuff to go to like minded people. Perhaps try not to be too quick to tar everyone with the same no integrity brush next time...... and think they're just wanting to run off with the profits and to not donate to charity when its a requirement of selling and must be agreed to. If i'm lucky enough to have left over anything or any reasonable amount then I will happily donate over the minimum amount again as \i have just done as a thank you. I'm well aware of dealing with people with a lack of integrity.......doesn't mean we all lack it, ababada.
