Until this weekend I never in my life backed out of a deal. I honor my word but I screwed up Saturday night and backed out of a deal. I feel like crap but think I did the best thing. I bought something from Craigslist and when I got it home and started checking model numbers and serial numbers realized it was not what I thought it was. The seller did not misrepresent it and did nothing dishonest, I just misread the add. Not only was the value of it about $1200 less than I paid but I found out it would not even work on my boat. I called the seller back and asked him if he would take it back. At first he was very hesitant but eventually I think because he had not cashed the check yet and figured I would probably stop payment (which I don't think I would have done) he agreed to take it back. He was a little upset because he turned away a couple of callers before I contacted him Sunday evening but he took it back anyway. When he gave me back my check I did kick him $100 cash for his trouble but it didn't seem to make him much happier. I've really been feeling like a jerk but I know if I had kept it I would have had to turn around and sell it myself and I never would have recovered near the $2300 I paid. So let's hear it, am I a jerk or did I do right?
