And I asked for a return before you even got the cymbals. Also the money was in my Paypal account. And I told you I would refund you the money immediately. The only thing you kept telling me was they were for your grandson and they were his now period. I offered you a refund, replacements, I just didn't think it was that big a deal you can get A Zildjians hats all over the place. I don't get it. I made a mistake and you won't let me off the hook. You did offer to help me find era correct hats but why can't you return mine that match my set of cymbals and find some more. I don't want any problems with anyone. I just don't know what the big deal is with a swap or refund. I mean really. If the shoe were on the other foot I am sure it would be a different story. I mean does a little girl need a mink coat. I don't think so. I have some nice replacement hats, I just don't want to break up my 50's cymbal set. They belonged to a Connecticut jazz drummer and I got them from his estate. I have and had no intentions of ever losing those. Selling or trading or anything else. I am just surprised at your attitude about it. I don't think I am being unreasonable. They are orphan.s to you. I had a matching set . I mean really John, I am not a bad person. I just had a brain **** and you won't let me off the hook. I would never do that to another drummer. It's not the end of the world but it is so easily remedied. I think you just see how nice they are and don't want any others. There for a kid. Good god man. I am a,professional drummer who used those all the time. Look what you wrote me :
Those cymbals were purchased for my grandson... and that's where they are going. Period. It was -your- error, not mine. What are you hoping to do? Guilt me into giving them back?

I've made mistakes in the past selling things for less than they are worth, you man-up, take the lesson and move on. You're starting to make me feel like I'll never hear the end of this.

This is not abut the money at all but about something that I do not want to part with. You man up. It seems like this grandson thing has got you all , I don't know what. I think it's great what your doing. But not at my loss. I told you immediately abut the situation and would like to refund your money. Offered you a few dollars more plus shipping. Before you ever received them. There was no check. The money was in paypal. I never cashed anything. And I have only written John 3 times. Maybe I should screen save the Paypal payment and post it.
Since you started this thread for all to see and give opinions, here is mine....
You're wrong! I've sold many drums and cymbals and not once did I ever ship the WRONG item and if I did make such an idiotic mistake, I would NEVER ask for it to be returned, especially after recieving the funds. You need to grow up, put your big boy pants on and take it on the chin, unbelievable.
