Waited about 3 weeks. Order never arrived, so I contacted him and he gave me this really immature and unprofessional response along the lines of, "It's not my responsibility, once the package is mailed it's out of my hands, etc."
I've been a member of Etsy for a few years now and witnessed his immature conduct in the community forums (only after I placed an order with him). If I had known that he was a "pet" of the admins and basically thinks he's immune from any repercussions because of that, I would have never given my money to him. It's a shame given his feedback I thought I never would've had to put up with this.
I'm filing a complaint with Paypal and will definitely hope for the best.
So if you shop on Etsy, beware of this jackass.
