I'm Still Here, Happer...

Back in 2000, I commissioned a fellow by the name of David Pirkle (who operated under the business name of Pirkleations) to make me a fursuit for my anthro alter-ego, RumblePurr Lion. We e-mailed back and forth and he told me he'd charge me $500, half payable up front, half on delivery, and I sent him a check.

And then ... nothing.

Sometime in 2001, in response to a "Hey!" note I sent, I was contacted by someone who claimed to be acting on his behalf, who said that Mr. Pirkle was ailing some way or another, and that she would send me a refund.

And then ... nothing.

Then, earlier this year, my buddy Fastclaw informed me that Mr. Pirkle was up and running again, and accepting new commissions. Now, while I have little room to talk in the "take commissions and sit on them for months" department, at the same time, I am also not taking $250 and vanishing into the aether.

So I've sent yet another note to the most current address I have for Mr. Pirkle, and I'm going to poke around to see what, if anything, else I can find. It doesn't reflect well on him to leave this issue outstanding, it doesn't reflect well on tygercowboy, upon whose recommendation I gave Mr. Pirkle my business to begin with, and it doesn't reflect well on me to just roll over and let it go, either.

Professionalism, people! Respect! Either fulfill your obligations, or make restitution.
