    Just wondering in general. More than a few of us are pondering.

    I also just threw out a train board I was holding for someone on craigslist who's kid was all excited about it. I threw it out because I hadn't heard from them in 2 months and couldn't find their email. I was supposed to hold it for a month, but I did tell them to take their time. I needed the space saturday, so I threw it out figuring they'd lost interest like so many craigslist responders.
    I just checked my email before bed, and of course the lady emailed me that she was still interested.

    A board with track attached to it, and somtimes buildings and scenery built on top.
    Basically, a hobby for people who like model trains. My son and I are into trains, but I built a bigger trainboard for him and I to use. This one I was giving away wasn't really built by me anyway. It was really nice, though, it had a dozen or so turnouts, 3 or 4 circles, and mountains and tunnels. It was N scale trains, though, too small for a 5 year old to handles without destroying.

    For model trains I assume.

    I would say, no. Although you did say 'take your time' you already said you'd hold it for a month. You're not some layaway service ;)

    Anyways, I feel sorry for the kid, but wouldn't blame you for anything. You said you needed the space, and couldn't find their info.

    I feel really bad for the kid too. She said he's been really excited about it.

    No good deed goes unpunished. Story of my life. You say you will hold it for a month and take your time, they call over two months later and are disappointed. I often wonder why I feel bad when something like that happens, but I feel bad none the less. If you were truely and arse, you would not feel bad at all, so you have answered your'e own question.
