Why are you reading this? Seriously. If you don't know the basics of an honest business transaction by now, you shouldn't be allowed to carry money.
That being said, I'm an understanding person. I know what it's like to be on a budget and have all these people you want to get nice things for. (Especally during the holidays) So if you don't have the full amount, we can come to a layaway-type agreement. Just don't jerk me around or bust my chops, and things will go smoothly. I work fast and send things out quickly, which is great if you need to ship them back out in the mail to your whomevers. I expect the same courtesy in return. It's all I ask.
