So I'm surfing Gumtree & come across a lady in Diepriver area who's selling a Netbook for a VERY good price. I call her ( Sunday evening ), ask the questions I want to ask, and we agree on a price that she's comfortable with. The price is R200 less than the advertised amount. I tell her ok I'll take it, & will contact her Monday or Tuesday with a time that I'll come collect it.
09:27 Monday morning I call her wanting to tell her that I would like to come collect the unit, and she says, " Oh two other people have called & offered me the advertised price. Sorry"
Now my question...
I was the first person who called & she AGREED to sell it to me at said price. Doesn't that mean that the damn unit is SOLD & she cannot go around trying to sell it for more? Yes, everyone wants to get the best deal for their goods they're selling, but by us AGREEING last night that I'll take it, doesn't that mean the damn thing is mine at said price?
Or am I wrong here?
