    Yah this is sincerely what happened- not trying to make excuses but I seriously told my dad that I had told airbullard that I would purchase his tickets and that by not doing so I would be leaving him high and dry 1.5 hrs before tip, but my dad couldn't see spending $20 more dollars on tickets from someone that he didn't trust and so he just bought from the box office. This still doesn't justify my actions- I should have just not made the deal in the first place. But I am also glad we got this resolved and I plan on apologizing to airbullard via e-mail/phone tomorrow when I have more time.

    King of 40 Acres good move to make amends for the issue.

    I've sold tickets on here a few times and I'd feel the same way Air did if someone pulled out but I think you did apologize and make amends for it. :cool:

    KO4A, you did the right thing. I think we all forgive you.

    Good move, since AirBullard said so as well, I'd suggest to say case closed, now let's beat up the Jazz instead of King of 40 acres :D.

    BOOOO.
    UTAH SUCKS


    I was hoping for some type of fight between airbullard and Ko40A in the Octagon.


    The only thing I may not have liked about this thread is using Kof40A's name in the thread.


    Just say some random dude off the BBS, and then we can do our own research.

    Sounded like a misunderstanding the whole time.

    The problem is that KO40 tried to say he would be buying the tickets, when in reality his dad was buying them.....

    And since his dad could care less about this site....it left him looking bad.

    Glad it all worked out.

    Both of you are ok in my book.

    Getting caught between your own word that relies on the actions of another is a crappy place to be in.. and as a young adult its even harder when those people are your parents. You don't want to admit that they were involved in any way, its a pride thing, but alas, lesson learned.

    You are trash & should be banished from this site.

    Your dumbass way of trying to jailhouse lawyer your way out of tghis by throwing around meaningless phrases like "mutual risk" is pathetic.

    YOU ALSO LIED TO THE GUY, JACKASS! You told him you were just gonna buy tix from the BO, here you admit you got a better deal?

    Pathetic.

    airbullard, you are a good guy - you have more patience, tolerance, and an ability to forgive than most of us.

    Still, having Daddy's Boy dump $30 bucks into the tip jar doesn't excuse the fact that he he f'd another member over like this.

    Only reason he donated anything was because the CF community shamed him into doing so - and swilkins, the guy is 22. If at that age he doesn't realize he pulled a bitch move UNTIL an entire fanbase condemns him then he is an idiot.

    Yeah maybe I'm not as forgiving as some of you, but I've been shafted exactly like this by Craiglist assholes before. They make the deal & then run around the TC trying to get a better one. When they do you are SOL.

    Someone's word as a man no longer carries any meaning.

    Look, if airbullard is happy with the donation to the tip jar, then I think it's a done deal and everyone should be happy. But, being 22 years old, you needed to man up to your dad and tell him that you gave someone your word and you have to stick to it. If he's worried about getting fake tickets, the very easy remedy would be to ask airbullard to walk up to the gate with you. If i understand correctly, he was still going to the game, just getting rid of some extra tickets, so I think he would've been happy to walk through the gates with you.

    Just so everyone knows what I was getting at... I wouldn't have mentioned the username at first.

    I would have tried to settle it off the BBS...

    Yes, Ko40A messed him over... but did I need to know it before he had a chance to contact him again and perhaps make it right?

    And... stub hub works well... you can leave the tickets at will call, etc.

    So the other point is this.. use a service, get it in writing. ;)
