well, this situation just took a turn for the gayer... express-lane straight to turdstown and i'm afraid there's no exits. the true, no bs story is as follows:

-i advise krooked for a few hours and help him choose parts to install in his aeg
-i pick up the parts for him, and recieve his internals in a bag with a request to upgrade the mechbox
-i do the work after some time because i was busy, but kept in touch and returned it to the customer for the standard fee of $40 plus parts. i warn him that i couldnt test and to keep in touch in case he has issues.
-issues arise and the gun is brought to the store while i wasnt around, this was however discussed over IM and a quote for further labor was discussed.
-i get paid for a different upgrade when i return to the store but accidentally think it's prepayment for the repair work on this one (my bad)
-i was told on christmas friday that the gun needed to be finished for saturday so i frantically drag myself to the store to find it closed early for the holidays with none of the owners available to let me in and do the work. my little sister's present buying was moved till after the holidays, merry christmas man.
-i return and explain the situation and apologize over im (krooked was afk)
-i come home and this thread is born
-we discuss what to do, he wants his gun back. no problem. he wanted his money back. no problem (i am thinking it was the "pre-payment"). i realize there might be confusion so the next time i was hassled by him on msn, i asked:

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
2:52

hey

manchovie (extraordinaire)
2:54

yo

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
2:55

so did u talk to the store about e picking it up

manchovie (extraordinaire)
2:55

it's not open yet

55:27
i told you not to worry about it

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
2:55

ok

manchovie (extraordinaire)
2:58

did you leave money for this repair session?

58:44
or did you want a refund for the work i did a long time ago

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
2:59

refund for the work before that u said you wouldrefund since the mechbox didnt function

manchovie (extraordinaire)
2:59

lol my bad i thought you left money with the gun for THIS repair

59:55
i'm not going to refund the last money

00:02
i did the work, it cost me time

00:10
the fact i couldnt test properly was YOUR fault

00:14
that cost me MORE time

00:19
why do i owe you?

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
3:00

do to the upgrade not working

manchovie (extraordinaire)
3:01

i couldve caught whatever problem it was if i had the whole aeg, hence me asking for it the second time around

02:18
sorry man, i owe you nothing. i was going to do the upcoming work for a lower price, in fact you were given a quote when we were arranging it and i was planning to lower it further because it was late

krookedatmosphere@msn.com
3:02

its not my fault it didnt work i was missing a prt when i brought you the whole gun when i cam to pick upp the mechbox so you should of said something then but you didnt so you said if u have any problems to let you know

manchovie (extraordinaire)
3:02

but i was not going to do it for free, nor was i going to return the money for the initial upgrade

02:37
because that's bogus

03:21
i'm posting this conversation in the thread

03:30
it's gone beyond reason

03:33
now youre just bullying me




and there you have it folks. i hoped it didnt resort to it being my turn to complain, i was going to let this thread slide but it's gone beyond the possibility of harming my service to taking money i rightfully earned (this is not a big deal, happens all the time but STILL).
worst of all making me question continuing providing a service few are capable of providing, wasting my time and the time of others (i'm talking hours and hours. you know who you are) and being completely not understanding, approaching everything the way a spoiled child would, expecting fate to shower him with gifts. worst part is that if i had got the whole thing done on time, rush job, repair as opposed to upgrade (can be very time consuming) would he seriously have refused to pay me on pickup? it boggles the mind!

here's the bottom line: there was no second fix. i was not paid for a second fix. i offered to get it running, but we agreed to return the aeg. i owe you nothing, quit crying.

PS merry christmas and congratulations to krooked atmosphere on his promotion to 2nd in command of FORCE 32!!!!

PPS i just noticed the times in the conversation are all over the place. you need not worry, this IS actually a linear convo, completely unedited. my msn client is just a little retarded and i'm too lazy to remove all the times.

first of all that is the full story and you have left out some parts as i can post it when i get home as im at work.

we never agreed on a price or to fix my gun for money you said that you would repiar it due to your mistake and not charge anything so dont go saying that we agreed to anything..
and i told you i needed the gun for this past sat, about 1 week after i dropped it off after you had it for 1 week.. so dont go giving my that shit that i told you a day before i needed it

to continue when im home from work

12/24/2006 11:03:38 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere... you'd have to decide whether you want it completed or not first

12/24/2006 11:04:00 AM Krooked Atmosphere... manchovie (extraordinaire) when would it be complete by

12/24/2006 11:04:05 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere... next weekend

12/24/2006 11:06:16 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 alright, just call the store then and arrange a meeting

12/24/2006 11:06:53 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) do i get my money back for the labour

12/24/2006 11:07:16 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 yeah of course

12/24/2006 11:09:28 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 you bungled this pretty fuckin bad

12/24/2006 11:09:36 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 that post on asc was completely unnecessary

12/24/2006 11:09:40 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 you do that for scam artists

12/24/2006 11:09:46 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 did i scam you?

12/24/2006 11:10:02 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) no its a post for a service that wasnt completed on time and

12/24/2006 11:10:34 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 dude, you shouldve talked to me about the specific problem

12/24/2006 11:10:38 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 which was that i couldnt get into the store

12/24/2006 11:10:45 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 because they went on holidays early

12/24/2006 11:11:18 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 i went way out of my way when i didnt actually have proper justification for

12/24/2006 11:11:26 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 i did it because i have pride in what i do

12/24/2006 11:11:50 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) i understand that but if something you pay for isnt done on a time frame that was givin you would be mad to

12/24/2006 11:12:48 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 i told you the odds werent good that it'd be done that day

12/24/2006 11:12:52 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 and that i was doing what i could

12/24/2006 11:13:01 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 it's totally different than if i just completely ignored you

12/24/2006 11:13:09 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 and this is what i'm talking about

12/24/2006 11:13:27 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 if you had just come to me on msn and had this conversation instead of posting on asc you wouldnt look like such a clown

12/24/2006 11:13:48 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) it was that it wasnt done for the fri i u had for almost 3 weeks now and when i did get to talk to you u said it would done this weekend and then it

12/24/2006 11:14:15 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) i dont care what i look like i have the right to post about a problem i had and making it aware to

12/24/2006 11:15:10 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) i was not happy with the service i got from you and i posted that

12/24/2006 11:15:34 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 overreaction

12/24/2006 11:15:38 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 but it's no big deal

12/24/2006 11:15:38 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) not even

12/24/2006 11:15:56 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2
IC-Force32 just as long as you apologize on the boards like you apologized to me here so it can be wrapped up

12/24/2006 11:16:10 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) you first had the mechbox for 3 months and then the first time i goto use it, it doesnt work

12/24/2006 11:16:38 AM Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 manchovie (extraordinaire) i have the right to be mad

12/24/2006 11:17:24 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 you have the right to be frustrated. but you have to understand that airsoft is just a japanese replica of a gun that happens to shoot

12/24/2006 11:17:35 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 if they were designed for reliability they would look like paintball guns

12/24/2006 11:17:40 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 shit happens

12/24/2006 11:17:58 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 i wasnt unreasonable with you either

12/24/2006 11:18:09 AM manchovie (extraordinaire) Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 when you asked me questions, i helped you out

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

did you leave money for this repair session?

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

or did you want a refund for the work i did a long time ago

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

refund for the work before that u said you wouldrefund since the mechbox didnt function

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

lol my bad i thought you left money with the gun for THIS repair

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

i'm not going to refund the last money

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

i did the work, it cost me time

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

the fact i couldnt test properly was YOUR fault

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

that cost me MORE time

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

why do i owe you?

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

do to the upgrade not working

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

i couldve caught whatever problem it was if i had the whole aeg, hence me asking for it the second time around

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

sorry man, i owe you nothing. i was going to do the upcoming work for a lower price, in fact you were given a quote when we were arranging it and i was planning to lower it further because it was late

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

its not my fault it didnt work i was missing a prt when i brought you the whole gun when i cam to pick upp the mechbox You should of said something then but you didnt so you said if u have any problems to let you know

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

but i was not going to do it for free, nor was i going to return the money for the initial upgrade

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

because that's bogus

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

i'm posting this conversation in the thread

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

it's gone beyond reason

manchovie (extraordinaire) says:

now youre just bullying me

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

thats fine post what like i have the whole converstaion from the begging of the conversation

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

how is that bullying as its was your repair and misconmmuacation on the pickup of the mechbox

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

?

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

if you were to have said something when i first picked up the mechbox that you need the parts to test it then i would of waited and not paid you for the work. and you should of not giving the mechbox back before testing it.. thats like me changing a flat tire and patching it and not checking it to see if it is leaking before i put it on a customer's car and sending it out the door to have to come

Krooked Atmosphere 2IC-Force32 says:

back saying it is still flat.


Prove to me the intial quote you gave to me for this repair cause none was giving to me.. so there you are lying about that. dont for get to bring out the part where i brought you my gun in parts when i came to pick the mechbox up and the only thing i was missing was the inner barrel and and hop-up so you said you cant put it togather. but i think that you tested it cause i seem to remeber you doing that i can ask my friend that came along with me. but i was forsure you tested it and said it was good togo just that i need the inner barrel and hop-up to install the rest of the gun which i bought at the store and later returned home to put the gun back togather only and to only find out s couple of months down the road when i went to use it that it didnt work... cause when i was there i sold you the 9mm silencer that you wanted too and that was in my parts with my aeg, correct me if im wrong in anyway

all i want is my money back for the install of the parts as something isnt working right inside the mechbox so i can use the money to give to other gun doctor that i know to fix the problem. you agreed to that and now backing out cause you thought it was something else.

what is so wrong with that i dont want money back for the time it took him i want it for the problem with the mechbox

This is a perfect example of the underlying problem... your single post took up 13 pages on my screen. You don't value other people's time.

Statute of limitations should apply there, mate. It's not Manchovie's fault you don't play with your kit for months, and he certainly has no responsibility over what happens in that time.

Moreover, once he hands you the gearbox and you accept it, his end of the bargain is done. You pay, you leave, everyone's happy. End of transaction. He has no obligation to you afterwards. In fact, he had no obligation to test your gun for you upon delivery, because you didn't bring your kit. It's not his fault you packed light. If you want your gun tested and your money shown for bang, then take some responsibility upon yourself and bring your kit there. Given the scale of Manchovie's operation, I don't think he'd have spare gun shells just lying around waiting to be drop-tested, nor could he possibly have all the same parts as your "custom build".

Your analogy with the flat tire would be as follows: you bring in your flat tire, without the rim/wheel in it, and ask for it to be patched up. You pick up the fixed tire, again without a wheel, and take it home. Several months later, you decide to finally mount your fixed tire to a wheel and put it back on the car, whereupon you find it flat. The tire fixer is not responsible for what has happened to the tire in those months between fix and mounting.

Can you prove beyond a doubt that it's the gearbox problem, and not something you did during reassembly?

Moreover, can you prove that you yourself didn't fiddle with the gearbox in between Manchovie's times? How do we know you didn't just bang the box a little too much and now want someone else to tab your mistake?

Uh... because it's the same thing?

Time it took for him to install it is the installation fee. You want the money you spent for the alleged problem with your gearbox, which in other words is the installation fee.

"Prove to me that it was my installation of the mechbox into the body rather than the mechbox itself. When the mechbox was not properly tested by
the one performing the upgrades. Furthur more, had it been made clear to me what was required before hand. A Garage would tell you to come back
with a rim, or try to get you one ordered if you go in to have them put air into it. Mechanics are ussually pretty smart and don't like to sit with a hose
trying to fill up a tire that obviously would not take air. Look, I have no previous statement telling me what was required before hand. Also, a garage wont
accept 20 cars when they only have 2 bays and so on. They will inform you that they are too busy for the day to get to it anytime soon. Not accept the car,
later give you a novel of how hard they are working 15 hours a day and still not getting around to your car cause there is a "line-up." Understandably
schedules change, and airsoft can be a little different in comparison to a garage. But a garage will keep extra parts handy, spark plugs, oil, seals, etc etc.
You'd think in a shop so full of such parts there is not one kicking around?


As stated many times, this is a thread about miss-communication and a deal that to my opinion went horribly south. The gun kept getting put off, and excuse
after excuse came to get it done. A time frame was made, but not kept, a new revised time frame was made, not kept. Yet another revised time-frame was made
and yet again another time frame was not met. If this was a contractor to a house, he'd have some angry clients sitting out front in the cold waiting for
their house. More than enough time was given for him to let me know what he needed. I had given to him the mechbox which he had for 3 months and that was
given back after such a time, and at this point no word of what he would had needed to test it. So after getting the rest of the parts in for the gun, ie.(
pistol grip, stock and a battery for the gun), I assembled it to find that all the mechbox didn't work right. After making contact with him at this point he
said to just bring it back, "Okay cool, get it fixed, no problem right?" By this time most of the gun was assembled anyway so everything was there that he
"needed" and still was not asked to bring anything specific this time. However again it started with the time frames being made and later revised. Instead of
"Sorry, I just don't have the time to do this at the moment, if you want to contact someone else then let me get you back your gun." No, I get "I'm sorry I
work three jobs and 15 hours a day." To which I must ask myself, "If this is the case than why do you accept the airsoft guns to fix if you have no time?"
Really it should be as simple as, "Sorry, I do appollogize, with out such and such parts I really couldn't test it properly at the time and now my schedule
is too packed to really get a look at it any time soon." And then I could just try to find someone who can help me with this.


Then, as stated a number of times now, I come here to make this post to express my frustration with this transaction. We talk some more after, and we both
agree that I'll get my gun back, and my money back aswell. But then I get the message from him that he is not returning what he thought was a "pre-payment"
for fixing this problem. Well, why would I pay him to fix the problem, when I made said payment when I got the mechbox back? Furthur more, why would I pay
a pre-payment to a problem 'before' it occurs. I'd like my money back, because I was promised a service that was not delivered. Most of you stand on the
basis that this is my fault that the service 'he' promissed was not delivered. But, if he had told me that he required these parts to test his work, then I
would have had the ability to get him said parts. But with out this knowledge, how can I be to blame when he tells me later that he never got to fully test
it? Because he never told me to bring in these parts.
