Joss - I do remember you! I am sorry you are still waiting for your book as well.
Shortly after I posted this, I looked a little further into Mr. Barata's pages... I saw exactly what you guys mentioned, that he is a doctor and is on the front lines dealing with Covid... I feel terrible, the man is a hero
and here I was worried that he was ripping me off. I wish I had seen that sooner - I really did believe that he is honest but I never could have imagined that he's on the Covid front lines.
I sent him an apology (I was starting to get a little angry because I did not know why he was not responding to my messages). I was always respectful and polite (I am an incredibly nice guy!) and I will not harrass him any more... his hands are incredibly full.
Thanks for the responses! I feel awful for getting upset, it really is a trivial matter when you consider the big picture. I would still love to get the book, and I'll just be patient.
Parcelpostguy - I could not have said it better myself!
