I would just like to update this post with the latest PM's between Lateralus and I. I understand where he is coming from but at the same time I'm not here to screw anyone over and I feel his remarks towards me are uncalled for.
We agreed since he has ZERO transactions at the time of our trade agreement he'd send first and I'd send my end once I received my end. As stated before I had him send my end to my parents in TX since I was there for 6 days. I did receive another package I had sent there but the cards for this trade never arrived there during my tenure there. I am now at my in-laws in north Texas and headed back to Nashville Tuesday. I will contact my parents this afternoon to see if anything arrived for me in the mail yesterday and update this transaction.
Here is a direct transcript from Lateralus and I's PMs:

Whats going on... I have already gotten my end from another trade that I mailed the same day as yours.. and I mailed first..
QUOTE( Gforce083 Dec 27 @ around 11pm)
Whats going on is that we agreed you would ship first and I'd ship once I received your shipment. To this point your end has not arrived to my knowledge. We just discussed this yesterday.

Yea, and its ######(explicit language). There is no way everyone else received there end, and then I've received their end but you still have yet to receive.

I understand your concern, but take a look at my track record here. I'm not here to screw anyone over and I will always do my best to keep my word. You can rest assured that once your package makes it to my parents house I will let you know and I will ship out my end of the trade. I've had it with me my entire trip home to Texas, it's packaged, addressed, and ready to ship. I'm just waiting to receive your end of the trade first, because that it was we agreed upon. I'm not sure why the cards have not made it to my parents yet, I don't work for the postal service so I have no idea whats going on, on their end. This is why purchasing Delivery Conformation is a wise thing to do. It protects you and the "tradee" and keeps both parties up to date on the status/location of the package. The only explanation I can think of is that this was shipped during the postal services most busy time of year, mistakes happen.
Again once I know the cards have arrived I will let you know.
