i aM a FrEaKeN IDiOt

Here it is word for word, Blake and Lindsey...


For most of you that know already, I have been selling on eBay for about a year now. I probably sell about 25 items a week. I have found that for the most part people are very nice and easy to work with. I have dealt with very new buyers who are still learning the system as well as very experienced buyers who most of the time become a repeat customer.

The following is correspondence from an eBay member who purchased one of my items on a "buy it now," which means they had to click through 3 screens when they agreed to commit to buy my item. As a seller, I require payment to be received through paypal within 2 days of the close of the auction; whether it be a buy it now or auction style. This eBay member never paid or responded after 2 days so this email was sent...

[Aug 5, 2008] Hello. This item was won 2 days ago and I still have not heard anything or seen payment. Please respond so I can get them right out to you. Thanks.

I never heard anything so I always send another a couple days later. This is what was sent...

[Aug 7, 2008] Hello again. This is my 2nd attempt to reach you regarding your purchased but not paid for item. I require payment within 2 days of end of auction. Please submit payment right away so I can get them out to you. A unpaid claim will be sent to eBay on the 7th day of unpaid item. Thanks for your prompt attention to this message.

Later that day I recieved the first reply...

[Aug 7, 2008] I dOnT WaNt iT IdIoT!

Then only moments later, this...

[Aug 7, 2008] 4 DA LAST TIME I DONT WANT UR FREAKEN ITEM

So, I decided to respond with this...

[Aug 7, 2008] Why did you agree to buy it then? You shouldn't be on eBay agreeing to buy things if you don't freaken want them. Sellers pay money to list things that people don't freaken pay for.

I got this one message in response...

[Aug, 7, 2008] I DeLeTeD It oK So dOnT EvEn sAy sh*T

Who the hell is this person? Are there really people out there that know how to turn on the computer, set up an eBay account and send email messages like that? CLASSY!

I don't think there's any doubt who the idiot is here.

I think we say her over at Baja Fresh today hooking, or it could have been the bum using Safeway's bathroom for her own personal grooming. That is just absolutely crazy!

eBay is such a great way to make friends! Just think of all the exciting stories you wouldn't have to share if it wasn't for eBay!

That sucks. There's a lot of weirdo's out there on cyberspace!

BTW-Thank you sooooooo much for the adorable head wraps for Brooklyn. I have been admiring them on your girls for months. You were so sweet to send them. They're the perfect size! I'll send a picture so you can see.

Thanks again!
