Ah, never mind, I read the Glory Hole thread and saw that you closed the bar last week and just sold the bar on the last night to a Khmer lady for $25. Give her back her $5 deposit.

Just been told the above news.
Screws the sale of the Glory Hole.
Sure you didn't know before this?
What???

This just screwed a sale of an inconsequential asset of mine. If I had know and I had been the type of person you imply I would not have agreed to lease transfer next week , I would have pushed for the deal to settle straight away. As it stands we will be giving back a sizable amount or all, of the deposit as we cannot settle.

Please do not assume everyone in business here has the same scruples as you obviously do.
Come on LJ that genius doesn't have any business skills never mind scruples.

Sorry to hear of the situation down there. Crazy how quick things change.
I meant surely you were aware that bars etc. would be forced to move soon? Typo there some text left out, no aspersions on character, calm down. Who would seriously suggest you'd shoot yourself in the foot? Surely you realised it's odd and it has to be a typo?

It should read surely you knew this would happen...iow, everybody has been talking about the possibility of people suddenly losing stuff when leases etc. are cancelled...you can't honestly say that it was never a possibility...a whole bunch of people have been kicked out early and got nada

But no, you instantly resort to fanciful ad-hominem. Scruples? What? Please, be more specific...no need to your panties in a bunch
Really? There is an edit function you know?

A typo is usually missing a word or two.

Your explanation above of your comment

bears no resemblance to

sorry sport, but your attempt to worm out of this one really is pathetic.

it was not an ad-hominem attack, but a response to your slur on my business character. Trying to turn my defense of your un-called for attack on myself into a cry of an ad-hominen attack is nearly as pathetic as saying your assult on my character was just a typo. Childish.

yeah, it could happen any time.

No I did not know beforehand, otherwise I would have not sold a lemon.

If the full amount had been paid on the day the deposit was paid it would have been bad luck, no refund.

Since we could not deliver what was agreed , due to the change in circumstance between deposit and contract, the deposit was refunded in full.

Is the landlord paying you a buyout payment for terminating the lease, and is that buyout payment greater than the agreed sale price of the bar?

Uh..doh..yes I'm aware of an edit function, just like you are aware of spelling/grammar.

So now LJ gets to dictate how people make mistakes when they type, when they view their posts, when they edit them....the narcissism takes on anew level

It doesn't mean you remember to use it 100% of the time. How many posts have I made... altogether? And you're getting your butt hurt because this ONE time I didn't use it, and it upset YOU, you think it was deliberate?

OK, genius, explain this:

HOW can something that you do, which damages YOU be interpreted as underhand?

Go on, we're waiting.

Even an idiot understands that underhand shirt is to the advantage of the underhand guy...but somehow, you think, in this situation, it isn't.

Either there is in fact some sneaky shit going down (but for the life of my, I don't see how financial suicide can benefit anyone) or you're reading shit into stuff that in't there.

Basic laws of economics vs John's paranoia: nah, paranoia must be true. LOL

I gave you my explanation. It's logical, it's true. I didn't have to do that, but I did.

Whether you accept it or not, I no longer give a flying fuck.

However, please tell us how a guy committing financial suicide can possibly be viewed as some kind of deliberate sneaky move.

^Take the better half of the week off, That Genius. Not everyone who isn't poor is unethical. You seem to be on a mission to start fights with anyone you can on CEO, which I'm sure is not appreciated by most of the community.

The insinuations you've made against John are completely uncalled for.

Come back with a better attitude or it will be a short lived return. Thanks.

I lost count a long time ago of how many people I've known or just read about who invested In Sihanoukville only to have the contract torn up and subsequently get evicted so the place can get bulldozed and the whole process can just start again, only with larger sums of money. It's been going on as long as I can remember. Does anyone remember when the governor built a huge mansion on a hill, only to lose his position and then have his property demolished?
Sorry to break the self centered GH talk but the aforementioned quite nice looking villa is still very much standing even if fast loosing it’s king of the hill title.
