    Man i am so fed up with people that tell you they are going to do something but then they dont. I called my dealer around 2 30 and they told me the got my new blower in this morning (br600). He told me that he was taking care of a customer but would have the blower assebled by 4. I asked him for the balance and he didnt have it on hand so he told me he would call back in a little while. Well its about 4 50 and he still hasent called me back to at least give me the balance. They close at 5, i guess i wont be getting my new blower today.

    Why did you need to know the balance before going in there? I always either take a blank check or just pay w/ the cc. Especially if I know they already have it there.

    I cannot believe he had the chutzpah to not call YOU back. What on earth could be so important in this man's life that he wouldn't call YOU back when YOU want your new blower in January....:confused:

    Did you not know the price when you first ordered it? If so how much did you put down on it. Take the price and subtract what you put down.

    yeah i called and priced them...the br 550 was 395 and the 600 was 480..so im thinking somewhere around 80 bucks...i wanted to know the exact number though so i wouldent show up there with too little dough on my debet card

    Why would you be buying a backpack if you dont have the cash in you bank account. You should be able to buy anything with a small engine on it and not have to worry about if you have enough $. How are you going to have any money for the winter if your struggleing in Jan. Sounds like you should have kept the 550. You still would have had some cash lrft to buy a happy meal or two with.

    i dont keep very much in my checking account(which my debt is connected to) when i run low i just transfer from my savings into my checking. I only use it to buy gas and if i get cought without cash. So if i dident have enough in my checking, i would then transfer some dough
