So I sold my laptop yesterday. A nice aluminum MacBook. I told him that it is in great condition, the battery is still strong, last me at least a movie. Told him it was reformated, the OS was deleted and Windows 7 installed. Not a scratch on it, originally spend $1400 on it in 2008.
I go to his house. Really nice guy, nice house has his 3 year old passed out on the couch. He looks at it, starts it up. Tells me he read online that he will have to change some Bios to get the Mac OS back in there. I get the money, BS some more with him about graphic cards, BF3 etc. I like they guy.
I wake up the next morning with a text from 1am to call him in the morning.
I call him he tells me that, he tried the OS operating system CDs and they don't work because of the reformat. He tells me the battery only lasts 45 minutes and that when he removed that battery (for some reason) he was trying to remove the HD and the screws are stripped.
He was seeing if I would take it back. I was nice and polite but I told him no way. I was honest in the description, the battery always last me a movie or at least 2 45 minute Fringe episodes.
He kept pressing so I got frustrated and hung up. He called twice and I felt bad for the guy so I answer. He went on about the Mac OS not installing due to the reformat, the hard drive and the battery. I told him I am sorry but I am not going to take it back after the sale and after you tinkered with it. This went on for another 10 minutes and I keep saying there is no way I am taking it back.
He finally said good buy and we got of the phone. Two minutes later he texts.
I am really disappointed I thought you are a stand up guy.
I text back : I am sorry you are having buyers remorse but I was 100% honest regarding everything. When buying from Craiglist it is the buyers responsibility to make sure the product is 100% satisfactory, I was in no rush. And frankly I don't appreciate the implications that I am a liar and a cheat.
He text back : LOL buyers remorse, karama is a ***
I text : Is that a threat
He : No man I am not that ways. It's all good I hope were being honest and didnt know about the issues with this. I will deal with it and buy a batt.
Me : I can tell you that I often sit in bed and watch full moveis with bat to sparce. I sincerly hope it works out for you.
Him : It will I called apple and they said to bring it in and they could help me get OS back on. Sorry for being crappy on the phone, just bumed out.
I feel bad for the guy but I did not lie to him. I don't know if his wife is pissed or he got worried about not being able to install the OS at first, but the battery worked and I never touched the HD in the past.
Why do I still feel bad?
