we've all had them. share your stories here!

for the sake of friendliness, please do not use players names.

anyway here is one of my tales:

I put up an ad to promote my ranch store, and not a second later I get a pm

"i will buy one of your horses!"

wonderful! said I in response, as I anticipated their selection and the the accompanying notice to appear in my chat window.

a few minutes later I get another PM from the same person

"where are you?"

innocently I responded "on plains Isle, what do you need?"

their reply "I'm at your ranch, I want to buy one of your horses."

maintaining my patience, I inform them that to buy a horse from my ranch, they need only to click on the welcome sign to browse the store and make their selection, and that I do not need to be present.

a few minutes later I get another pm from the same person

"come to your ranch I want to buy a horse"

now becoming annoyed, I politely explain how to use a ranch store again and explain that I'm busy and my attendance is not required

I get another pm: "get over here!"

so I decided that it was time to log off for the day XD I ended up losing a sale, but really, some customers are just not worth dealing with lol

Here are two stories of mine:

Another Player: I would like to buy [such and such horse]
Another Player: How much do you want for it?
Me: Okay, the Foreign Bidder will give me 180k or there about for it.
Another Player: I'll pay 150k for it.
Me: ._.

Story 2:
Player: can i have Lace your mustang? (FYI she is maxed, 1k+ exp and 5/6 genes)
Me > Player: in what sense of the word "have?" To buy? To lease?
Player: Buy
Me > Player: you have 5 horses already and with an expired sub, you won't be able to pay for it or to actually take it to your account
Player: i am getting rid of a horse and can you put it in the barn?
Me > Player: you mean surrender it? why would I do that? I won't get any money for it and you aren't guaranteed to get it
Player: i am going to get it please?
Me > Player: no
Player: :( you are mean.

lol this was a more recent happening at a ranch party

we were lined up in a beauty contest, and the horse I was entering had a pet owl, and one of the other party guests said that they would trade me a pigeon for my pet owl. a little bit dumbfounded as to how to respond to that, and since they were a non sub I just said non subs can't trade, sorry. then she sent me another message saying that she would trade a pigeon for my owl and a sub token, now getting annoyed I decided to be more blunt "I don't sell subs, my pets are not for sale and I already have a pigeon."

and then I get the humbled "oh..." as a response.

and believe it or not that's not the first time I've had an encounter like that. people offering to buy my foals or tack for TONS below what they're worth. I once had someone ask me if they could buy my black english tack for 4k!! politely as I could I just said, I'm not selling it for less than its worth. I have no idea where people get the notion that because something is in someone's possession that they automatically want to sell it at a remarkable discount
