That guy is frustrated because heís probably going broke. Not a business Iíd want to be in right now.

Losing/going to lose way more than half of our mom and pop shps because of reduced traffic and shutdowns. I donít know how these brick-n-mortar shops can compete with online businesses to begin with what with their overhead costs.

I was a bit younger then and won't be doing that again where you have to be buzzed in and out. Definitely not a way to conduct business...
And he would have been within his rights to ask you to leave at any time, and you would have been in the wrong if you stayed. But he didn't. That doesn't mean he gets to kidnap you.

Then he ask why I didnít sale them 3 years ago when silver was 45 dollars in oz I told him I didnít have them then. Then he asked how I came about them never asked how many I had or what I had. I told him I found them metal detecting he said cool story and hung up on me. Lol what in a hole.

Let all of us know who it was.....that way maybe other members here fo the area wont bother calling him or giving him any buisiness....
If it costs him just one customer from here ...its something

FBT, the tough guy schtick is getting tiresome. Let it go.
No doubt you would. The testosterone is running hot and heavy.

Instead of answering the OP, he felt the need to make two negative comments about me that had nothing to do with the topic at hand. Personal attacks should never be ignored and I'm not going to let someone harass me or make negative comments about me.
