This is wrong, to me. Seller took the first guy's offer and should honor that. If he wasn't sure he wanted to sell it for 10, should have told guy #1 that he was selling for best offer. This is just sh***y behavior by seller and guy #2.

Why is wrong? the seller owns the table. he promises it to buyer A. Buyer B was skillful in getting seller to change his mind. So, seller tells buyer A that he realizes he was going to sell the table to him, but that new information has caused him to reconsider. Given that the transaction is legal, that the table is the legal property of the seller, and that we live in world we were can do basically whatever we want with inanimate objects we own.... Explain WHY it's wrong. Why is the seller the bad guy? I was going to sell an old woman a car once. She and I talked for weeks about it. I found someone willing to pay $2K more. I asked her if she could beat the price. She said no. I said ok... I am going to let it go for $2k more. Should I have missed out on that $? Would you have? To me, it would be odd that anyone would sell to the old lady in that scenario. It is possible to promise something and rescind that promise. You might piss the other person off, but it's not morally wrong

If you can collect from Dumfries, Scotland, I'll sell you one for less (no balls with it though). I'm serious.
