Just slightly annoyed and other things on my mind

February 15th, 2008 at 07:25 pm

So last night someone who won some eBay stuff from me a few weeks ago -- but who still hasn't paid me -- emailed after I filed a dispute to get my fees reversed. Mind you, this was the first I had heard from the winning bidder, who assured me that she would be paying for the item today. She did point out that her Paypal account is closed, so I wonder how she's going to pull that off. Now that it's getting fairly late and I still haven't received payment from her, my guess is she's not going to come through.

This really irks me. I, of all people, know people buy stuff they can't afford. But I have yet to stoop to this level of "debting" in my compulsive ways.

Onto other things ... I avoided working at all today, which was kind of nice. Working mostly at home, I can easily fall into the trap of never taking time off, but today I gave myself permission to not even look at any work-related stuff on my computer.

I will have to get back to the booming side business tomorrow, but I'm not returning to the "office" job until next Tuesday so I'll have plenty of time to get caught up.

    I was burned on eBay once when I sent out the item before payment was rec'd. The person never paid. She still had an active account despite two other complaints ahead of mine.
    I'd re-list and cut my losses.

    Don't you just love this, especially now that eBay won't allow you to post negative feedback on buyers. I have tons of needlework stuff to sell, but am leary of posting it on eBay with the new changes.

    yeah ebay has turned pretty crap nowadays. my bf got ripped off by someone who listed a lot of xbox games for cheap. bf paid over $100 for a lot of games but never recieved them, and ebay just deleted their account but wouldn't reimburse any of the costs because there were 'too many claims' on that particular person.
