  • Holding greens for others...

    Hey all,

    What do you reckon the statute of limitations should be when holding green beans for others, a la pickup point?

    Sittin on some beans here from near 3 months ago, the owner originally told me they forgot they ordered beans and has not opened the PM reply that I sent ;D

    So, how long before we bust em out at a get together? ;D

    What was that rule of thumb..

    The threes


    1:Greens = 3 years
    2: Brown = 3 weeks
    3: Ground = 3 min
    4: On Hold = 3 Months

    I recon that says it all..

    So what type... And how much ;D

      Hmmm, potentially dodgy one, eh. I k now that theres no way Id be stayin away if Id paid for some top notch beans. I reckon to cover your posterior, post clear notice, and personally via PM advise all players as to precarious status of their beans. Then put em up for sale in a free for all (if there is sufficient quantities) with proceeds going to fair crack.

      *Note to Andy- Maybe worth advising in BeanBay that pick up option will have an expiry date.....jester thought, I know things like this can get a little touchy at times..

      I like the three month option 8-)

        I would contact andy. He would have the email addy for the user and could give him a prod (or a deadline)

        Perhaps there are fair trading regulations to cover this situation.

            I think youve shown remarkable restraint, Chris. A weaker person might have roasted them up by now

                    As a general rule of thumb, in ideal conditions......cool dry spot in hesian I think was the consensus last time this was bought up on CS

                      Still have another order here that is pushing 3 months in storage.

                      Really surprises me :-?

                        Maybee the tax needs to be incremental; 50% after 3 months - 100% the following month! The spoils could be divided by the house and fair crack (with a small auction at the get-together.)

                          I wonder if its a storage issue.
                          A lot of CSers seem to suffer from it.

                          Better to leave it with cksyd than to find somewhere at home to put it or hide it from the better half?

                              In that case an "extortion" surcharge should be added to any storage fees: pay up or Ill dob [smiley=evil.gif]
