I post this to warn those of you who might plan on dealing with TheManInBlack.
2 months ago I posted a message asking where I could get Jump Seats.
I had a couple offers, and decided to take up TheManInBlack's offer of $40 plus shipping.
I waited a week for him to tell me where/how to send the money and he replied that he's been too busy to package and weigh the seats, and will get the shipping cost for me as soon as possible.
I waited about 3 more weeks, then gave up, and started looking locally....and on eBay.
Guess what I found on eBay? The jumpseats
that TheManInBlack had promised to sell to me.
Don't believe they're the same? Here is his own message
posted in these forums advertising them!
I sent him an email telling him how surprised and disappointed I was with him, and never got a reply.
Well, I guess he realized he might be able to make more money on eBay, so kudos to his entrepreneurial spirit, because his auction is already over a hundred bucks.
It used to be a man's word was as as good as gold.
Someone who is proud to advertise that he is a military man, and a sergeant at that, should certainly have more character than TheManInBlack has displayed. If you want to represent our men in uniform, I'd expect you to hold yourself to a higher standard than the average Joe.
Oh well. Here's to selling out.
I'd change my handle if I were you, Dave Overton....and stop boasting about being in the military. You disgrace those of us who served honorably.
