Warning! Do not buy tennis matches from this guy!

This is just a warning not to buy tennis matches from this guy: wgiaco@sprynet.com. I bought 2 matches from him for $9.95 + 1.95 shipping each match (note he won't lower the shipping even if you buy more than 1 match). One match was alright, not the greatest quality but watchable.

But I noticed that the other match had voices from another TV channel in the background. The voices are quite loud (if you listen carefully, you can hear what they're saying). So, you have the tennis commentators talking and these voices in the background talking at the same time. But it is most annoying when there should be silence (ie.when the players are serving), you could hear these stupid people talking from another TV channel in the background. It was so distracting, I couldn't watch past the first 8 minutes.

So I emailed him and asked for a refund or exchange. If he treated me right, I would've bought more matches from him. Well, it's been a week now and I haven't gotten any response. When I was buying the matches, he would email me back within 1 day or sometimes within the same day.

So DO NOT buy matches from this guy. He's a scammer!Warning! Do not buy tennis matches from this guy!

Too bad. I totally thought that you were going to say that he sent you porn or something awesome.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I wished he sent me porn. At least I'd get some entertainment instead of something that is too annoying to watch.

Mute it. I rarely listen to commentators anyway.

Re: Warning! Do not buy tennis matches from this guy!

I've gotten worse. He doesn't use premium grade tape. If you order multiple matches he puts as many as possible on the same tape. I ordered quite a few matches from him. Playing a tape the first time, it broke, so I got to see neither that match nor the one after it. When I later emailed him & discussed it, asking if I could have them on a Premium grade tape & I'd be happy to pay more, I never heard back from him. Glad to hear someone else had problems.

Is there anyone else good who is less expensive than the great guys in Britain - for the am. market? They're superb, but sooo expensive.

Well, this story isn't quite what you are looking for but perhaps it will satisfy your need for sex related humor.

When I first moved to San Francisco I had to find an apartment and I made an appointment with a guy on Craig's List. When I went to meet him and see the apartment, it turned out he was an old man single man, perhaps in his 70's. He seemed nice at first and offered me a seat and a cup of coffee and said he wanted to get to know me a little. But instead of asking any questions, he commented on how nice I looked, a few times. And then he started to tell me about his last "roommate." Apparently while living together him and his roommate became very intimate and blah blah blah. After hearing him talk about him and his wonderful supple hard-bodied twenty something "ex-roommate" I finally asked to see the room, just to get him to shut up. He answered "Well there is no room, you would be sharing my bed." And then he winked at me.

I stood up, said thank you (I respect my elders, even if they are perverted) and got the hell out of there

Honey I know... I should have been more clear. This happened when I first moved back to San Francisco. I was born there
