When I was horse shopping, I went to see a horse from a private seller that I liked and was planning to buy. We negotiated, I rode the horse etc.
Then when I went to pick up the horse and pay for it, I was slapped with an unannounced 'contract'. I was there with cash, trailer etc thinking I was getting my new horse.
Her previously unannounced demands:
First right of refusal at the same price as the sale today.
She was going to follow me to my barn to make sure she approved, she would have a trailer to bring back the horse if she did not.
She had a right to visit the horse at any time, and without notice. I was not allowed to deny her access, or she would take legal actions to get the horse back.
Erm no! This was a horse I was buying from a private seller - not adopting.
I thanked the idiot for wasting my time, and left cash in my pocket, and an empty trailer to return to horse shopping.
If she had told me these terms, I would never even had looked at the horse.
Another horse I drove about 3 hours to see. The horse came out, it was totally different from the one pictured in the sale ad. I said, woah that's not the horse I saw on the ad. Apparently the girl didn't have a camera, and so just posted a random internet photo to her ad.
I hate people!
