If you get a chance to talk to him...Tell him his divorce is going to be the least of his worries...Then ask him about picking it up... If he has a problem with that then you know that something is not good.
I'm all for giving people the "benefit of the doubt" but sometimes it can go a little too far. If people are going to sell stuff on ebay...especially for large sums of money, they need to understand that they have a responsibility to get that stuff out ASAP...no excuses.
I have had MANY ebay exchanges where the seller all of a sudden has an emergency...I have had MANY deaths in the family...I know it can and does happen...but it seems that as soon as I win an ebay auction someone in the sellers family dies
Maybe it's me...I'm just cursed.
