    A funny eBay experience

    Ok..
    Here we go....Yes..I currently have some A-wing Fighters on eBay....
    I didn't offer them for sale here first like I usually do, but I haven't seen anyone expressing intrest in them lately.

    So...I'm selling them for $22 (actual cost with tax), or $25 BIN (which covers my listing fees).

    In the desciption I mentioned that these are TARGET Exclusives...that they were bought at TARGET.

    I come home today with this message in my "In Box"

    Here is my response to this cheery fellow.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Hi,
    Thanks for the tip. It's common f***ing knowledge that these are Target exclusives, but guess what..

    NOT EVERY CITY OR STATE HAS A TARGET.

    I'm selling them for cost plus a few $$ to cover listing fees. Unlike most people on eBay selling Star Wars toys, I sell them to help fellow collectors out, not price gouge like every a**hole scalper on there.

    If you want one, bid on it, but don't email me giving me s*** because I tell people where they can find them.

    Next time mind your own f***ing business d***weed.

    Was I wrong? I could have ignored him, or reported him to eBay for sending harassing emails, but there's no fun in that.

    Comments, thoughts...anyone?

    You weren't wrong, you were funny. I like your response. What an idiot that guy is. Let him know next time he's on eBay to bid on a spell checker.

    I've thought about e-mailing some of the idiots who sell stuff on eBay, especially when they are selling Star Trek items with a picture and/or a description of something Star Trek, under the Star Wars name. But I worry about having my account terminated by eBay for poor language.
