I had a similar (though much less so) experience with another Forum member. I bought an item and he didn't want to go through the hassle of shipping so I agreed to meet him at a place in between that was about 40 miles away from me. No problem, it would be a nice drive over and back.

I got there and called and called and called and waited and waited and waited....

Finally after two hours he calls and says that he hadn't left yet and it would be another hour before he could get there and would I be willing to wait? I said no, nicely cancelled the deal, and drove home.

Two weeks later he was still trying to sell the item so I sent him a PM and offered 30% off of what he was asking and said that the price INCLUDED shipping. He accepted.

Work it out and in the end, everyone can go home happy.
