Ebay feedbacks from those who can't
(newbies who don't understand ebay feedback system)
Every now and then you (or me) get a dumbass who bids blindly without reading auction description. A few years ago I was selling "one shoe" which were brand new shoes used for display from a closed down sporting goods store. So ONE SHOE means ONE SHOE. I had called ebay to see if listing one shoe a problem, they said no, and on top of it, I was selling them for 99 cents, and mentioned that these would be great for veterans who have lost limbs for instance, even offered to ship them directly to now closed Walter Reed Medical center.
Not only was it mentioned in subject line 'one shoe' but also in auction twice that this was NOT a pair, but ONE shoe. Needless to say some west coast lady bought 5 of them thinking she was getting 5 pairs and only when she went to pay realized her mistake in not reading the auction.
And that is a big problem....people don't read auction, just look at photo and bid.
I had one ebay rookie claim I shoved a rare Dwight Howard vinyl poster in a box "in a effort to save shipping" of which was listed at $10.00 to ship. Here is actual shipping record of $9.35 to this dumbass:
who left a negative feedback because she didn't read description. Nowhere in the 'old' Playboy poster does it mention 'vintage' although they are old. But this dumbass didn't bother to email the seller, yet another person that has no business on ebay. Community my ass, get rid of riff raffs like above and clean it up.
Actual auction description since 1998 when ebay started up:
One of the RAREST of all AMX posters;
compares a Playboy
Bunny with New
Bunny is "G" RATED, wearing regular 60s Bunny costume.
BEWARE! Sells Copies Of The Original And Clams Them As Vintage! ~~NOT!!!!!!!~~
Communication could got a long way sometimes of which most of these "newbies" do not understand ebay's feedback system, much less reading whole auction text. While I have blacklisted them and will never sell to them again, I didn't put them in my EBAY ASSHOLES list. Not to say they won't eventually end up there.
Too bad, if people simply asked question first or read auction text shit like this would not happen.
A new Ebay Asshole is
Of course since before fucking ebay, these have been selling 10+ years before ebay a verb, and have been featured in many a auto rag including Hemmings, Hemmings Muscle, Cars & Parts, Old Cars Weekly, Muscle car review to name a handful & all big AMC auto rags, all with great reviews.
The auction text has never changed and nowhere in there is word vintage or original mentioned, but some dumb fuckers are illiterate; these are the same drunk assholes who stagger into a Dennys at 4am and point at menu thinking you will get everything on photo, that is until they vomit all over table & order cancelled.
