I sound like an old granny but where are the manners these days?
to give you an example.....I recently joined another forum to get info on my other car etc and I thought it only fair to join up fully for the small donation they were asking. Everyone seems friendly enough etc although judging by the majority of cars owned, its obvious the member base has a younger average age than we do on here.
After I paid my donation, I was asked for address details etc by the guy that also sorts the group buys, discounts etc so along with my details I also gave them a heads up to a couple of our traders who I thought would probably help them out with some club discount etc and sent the pm off.
Not a word back from him.
A few days had passed and I read on the forum that they now have a new club discount from clean and shiny and display the same banner we do for them in our section. Still no word from the guy
So as I hadnít received my member joining pack I pm'd him asking if it had been sent etc and also a little nudge about the discounts asking if he got sorted ok and how good a trader C&S are. All I got back was that he was waiting for more envelopes and im on the list.
Now, I aint too bothered about the member pack but I kinda feel a little put out that I offered some help and got no acknowledgement. Even if he didnít think it was any good a simple 'thanks anyway mate' etc would have gone a long way. But then to actually contact the trader, get the discount, advertise it and then ignore my prompt this morning is just taking the mickey a little. All in my own opinion of course.
Maybe im getting old, maybe its fatherhood making me see things differently these days, but I think common manners are dying.
