I missed this by ONE MINUTE. I hope sindeelou enjoys.
Yikes! That has to be one of the better eBay bargains I've seen lately! And, I've been on the lookout for this set, too. I feel your pain. Personally, I never catch these deals on eBay. I hear about 'em... I just never get to take advantge of them. SIGH!
Oh my! We won't kick you. Losing that is bad enough!
What's worse is that I was going to do a snipe because I saw it about 5 hours ago so I didn't place a bid. I went out shopping with the wife and kid and got here a minute late.
I've never won anything yet. The most infuriating things that've happened to me were: 1) going for a snipe with 30 seconds left, only to have the damn thing ask me to sign in again (I just had) .
2) being at work trying to sneak a snipe and having some bored coworker swing by my desk looking to strike some talk THE VERY SECOND I'd meant to drop the bid.
Sh** like the above can really ruin my day.
Seckels, don't feel bad. Although I didn't miss such a bargain I did forget one item on Ebay yesterday.
Perhaps it's time for you to invest in some auto-snipe ware Damián.
Yeah, I was cussing a lot.
I could not believe it. As Gary mentioned, SUCH a deal.
Nah, I don't really use eBay all that much. I'm browsing a bit these days, but I very seldom bid on anything. Besides, most sellers won't ship here (even those that say 'Will Ship Worldwide' .. I've already learned to ask in advance).
Instead of sweating out a schedule, how about bidding what you're willing to pay and walking away? It's much easier on the psyche.
And when I lose by a nickel, so what? Either that nickel's more than I was willing to pay, or I didn't bid my true ceiling. Besides, it's unlikely a sniper wasn't willing to go another dollar or two past my self-imposed limit.
I love to sell by auction and hate to buy by auction. But occasionally the good deal does turn up on Ebay, if you spend enough time on it. Hey, this is my 100th post - today I am a man!!!
Hmmm, I thought it was #100 *blush*
You heard what Mud said, Mal! One more!
One more, One more.............
You can do it! Go Mal! Go Mal!...
He's stuck at 99. Maybe he's thinking of something "memorable" to say for #100.
Forget it and post!
Doesn't have to be GOLD, Mal! Aluminum is fine.
I'LL ship to you, Damián! Look out for my upcoming auctions in about a week...over 100 hard-to-find rock & jazz titles. Quite a few MFSL and DCC too. Search for pdenny as seller.
Naw, something's terribly wrong here, it's like "Groundhog Day" - but I'll try just once more before I resign myself to being a Junior Woodchuck all the rest of my days...
Posts in the Classified Forum don't count towards post totals. Go post in Music Corner!
Sorry to hijack the thread btw
Oh YEAH! I remember reading that now. Sheesh. I thought maybe there was a blood initiation or something.
Okay, hope y'all had a good laugh! Well, don't call me Junior not no more ... and I added an apropos quote too.
100!!!!!! Here ya go!
Woo hoo! Congrats!
