I currently have 2 "trades" in progress.(I use the term "progress" very very loosely.)
These trades have been dragging on for years. Yes , literal years.
Here's the basics;
Trade #1 - I am to paint a jetpack for this person in exchange for a jetpack for myself. No money is to change hands at all, just the packs.
I have yet to receive anything except excuses and promises. Numerous emails have been exchanged
Trade # 2 - I supplied measurements of found parts in exchange for a set of repro parts made from the measurements out of aluminum. again, no money is to change hands.
I have received a few parts, but not all. To be honest, it's been so long that don't know what I am still "owed", but I know that I am still waiting on parts.
Numerous emails have been exchanged again with similar promises.
Should I be mad?
Should I pursue it?
Should I just give up?
What are your thoughts?
