I thought I'd start a thread to see how often this happens to other members. I'm referring to finding something that you really want on ebay, and don't win it due to some reason OTHER THAN BEING OUTBID. My experience is that this happens when something sells for a dirt cheap price, and I end up being mad/pouty for a couple days after it occurs. First off, I know that almost all of these issues would have never occurred if I had just entered my maximum bid long before the auction ended. However, men are stubborn, and never learn. Through the years, I've found items(generally music related) that I have missed due to being gone when it ends, or the computer connection messing up, or some variation. My most recent frustration dealt with an auction that ended tonight for the Phil Spector BACK TO MONO box set. I'd watched it for a few days, and it stayed at $9 with free shipping. The seller even sent me a couple of photos of the outer box, and all looked perfect. With a minute or so left in the auction, I decided to enter my bid of $16.50. I tried to enter it, and I did, and then was asked to confirm it. When I did this, I got a message about a session error. I furiously tried for the next 60 seconds, and it was to no avail. The auction ended up closing for $9.50. I've had many like this through the years, and I suppose I'm not the only one. I'd like to hear other's stories. Also, if you have this set for dirt cheap, let me know.
