If a person does their own research, compares the market and doesnt make promises that they cant/wont commit to then there really is no problem and anyone who gets upset by this should take a look at themselves.

yeah ive gota agree with ya, if your asking info and questions all the time and getting them out to hold and what have you, its only fair to go their. i bought my first snake from a petshop and im glad i did, got all the advice i needed

i apologise if i misread it but your thread seems to tell me you spent 6 months looking at a guys stock with the suggestion of having cash at a certain time (november) this suggests that you had taken up some of his time, no doubt discussing the animals for sale and maybe getting them out for you to see. then you say in november you went to a show and spent your money there, so im assuming (again sorry if im reading it wrongly) that you didnt buy from him as you had spent your money there on cheaper snakes.
So, if i havent misread it, youve taken up someones time with the insinuation that you are going to spend money with them only to turn around and do the oppisite.

So useing your logic (rightly or wrongly is irrelevant) its ok for the shop to tell him all show snakes will die and demand they be sold to him for a fraction of the price?
Sorry, but in a sales environment customers getting a better deal elsewhere and wasting time is common place, why he seems to think he should be immune is beyond me!

no, not at all, this is complete nonsense. its apples and oranges, if you want to talk retailer ethics then lets, but im talking customer ethics and that there quite often seems to be a total lack of them
