Myself, there've been many times that I, as a seller, and as a buyer, was interrupted by real life.
For sure that happens... but then the answer to his question shouldn't have been "check my rating", it should have been "sorry man, ____________ came up and I won't be able to ship until _______ " Just because you have a good rating doesn't mean you can wait a week to ship something without a good reason.
