Are you drunk? Does the cuemaker post here because thats what you make it seem like, either that or your "friend" does. Small claims court or go to their place of business and formally ask for a refund.

I agree...

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish with this post. If it's sympathy, you've got it. It sucks to not get what you expect/pay for regardless of the circumstances... If you know the cuemaker and are sure about the details and his willingness to make it right, I would contact them. If that doesn't work and your friend is MIA you may be S.O.L sorry, just the sad facts. I would start with the cuemaker, if he is aware of the situation. Most reputable cuemakers are more than willing to make good on a deal/cue that was not delivered as promised. Other than that it may be time to start over. there are lots of great cuemakers out there, many can be found in these pages...

good luck!

Are you sure the cuemaker ever got the cue returned to him? Did you send it back, or did your friend? Who has the cue right now, and are you sure, i.e., do you have a paper trail to show where the cue is?

I'd have to go back and ask the "are you drunk?" question again. Do you know what a period is? Do you have any use whatsoever for punctuation? Am I the only one who had to spend more time than what it was worth to try and figure out that "sentence?"

There are always threads about why pool looks bad to people. Maybe it's the lack of education by the people who play it. Or at least the lack of anyone trying to use whatever education they have.

I bite the bullet and sign myself up for English 101, pronto.

Hope you get this resolved.

Never do a $1,000+ transaction "through a friend." Take care of your own business. Now you really don't know who screwed you...

BTW, punctuation is a good thing.

BTW, punctuation is free, might as well use it.

I know in my part of the country...we take care of buisiness ourselves...if a deal goes bad...deal with it yourself....you go to cuemaker..take the issue up with him..or her..if you cant resolve it..if its worth it, go to the courts for help...if its not worth it.....cut your losses......and maybe his tires..lol No...i wouldnt suggest the tire deal...that was just some iddy biddy oklahoma sarcasm...

These 2 subjects always seem to clash.....I guess you could also substitute "relatives" for "friends" too....

Don't worry about the spelling/punctuation police. This isn't English 101.

You got your point across and that's the primary objective.

Welcome to AZ and i hope things work out.

Friendships are definitely made/lost by financial decisions and it's sad how cheaply some sell their integrity, hope you go directly to the source since it seems your friend is out of the loop for now. If the source doesn't help you out then I hope you mention the name of the cuemaker so we know who to be wary of, cues or not it's people's duty to help each other protect their dollars.

the train's started out at 20 mphfor 1/2 the distance, then slows to 18 mph for 1/4 of the remaining distance, then slows to 16 mph for 1/8 of the remaining distance, then slows to 14 mph for 1/4 of the remaining distance, then slows to 14 mph for 1/4 of the remaining distance . the train will never get there. hope this helps.

Eddie,
I would have never thought Josh would have done this to you. I can understand how finances can cause such a problem, but not calling and saying I sorry after all of this time is not right. I hope he makes it right and you get your money or cue. I can't believe how many people on here were bashing you and your situration. I wonder how they would feel if they were in your shoes and received the same feedback. I guess some people have nothing better to do than to add feedback so they can show more posts.

I am just guessing but I would almost bet that Miranda knows nothing about this situation. Mentioing their name was wrong.:(
Miranda is one of the better Pinoy cue makers. They don't usually produce cues that are all F'd up.
My guess is that the cue was one of the cheap ones off of fleabay.
Your "friend" was most likely scamming you.
I could be wrong but that's my theory and i'm sticking to it.:shrug:
