    Finally! Yes!
    My suppliers have always been extremely good to me.
    Bad experiences usually standout more because people don't talk enough about the good.

    Bartering is the best isn't it?! Think you already made friends with him.

    That is truly funny...

    Hey! So is mine!! Is yours out of New Hartford? I just got 2 cords delivered last weekend. "Seasoned 12 -14 months" It was a brilliant loading job. Everything in the middle of the load looked as if it had been "seasoned" in a pool. Totally saturated. I just moved into my house this summer. The guy I bought the house from assured me that the cord and a half in back were seasoned and ready to burn. Not judging from the creasote in my chimney! So I call around(I will never buy over the phone again -hey i'm new but i learn) and find "BS" who assures me that he's been doing this for 18 years and he has seasoned hard woods. Well now i won't have anything to burn this winter because of this shiteneck. He's lucky I don't talk to the family in the Bronx anymore... :coolmad:

    I agree, my wood guy is a thief also!

    Always duping wood out back, stores his damn splitter right next to the pile, THEN has the audacity to show up about every Friday evening, drinking MY beer & 'forcing' me to toss darts all night. Can you believe this guy?

    It's a tough situation, but I'll just have to deal with it until I figure a way out.
