I enjoyed The Corrections but did not feel that it is a complete work. I think some authors are storytellers and others are craftsmen of the language. Franzen showed me that he is an excellent craftsman, but as a storyteller he came up short. The Corrections had some passages which were brilliantly done, worthy of a bookmark so they can be revisited, but the storyline itself did not hold up for me. So IMO Franzen rates highly as a craftsman but not well as a...
Because the fucked up ebay system leads them down that path. It is necessary for it to be that way because it leads to a higher defect rate, which means lower/fewer discounts for sellers, which means higher profits for ebay.So it all makes sense when you see how it fits together.
Prices include US shipping with tracking. These shoes are first quality (unless otherwise noted) but have a mark in the insole which prevents return to retailer. No returns. All photos are clickable thumbnails. I am happy to ship to other countries. The shipped weight of a pair of shoes will almost always range from 3 to 5 pounds. Go to the USPS website, enter your country and the weight of the package for a quote. That will give you a real close, if not exact,...
I would contact him and see what he says. Ebay will not do anything for you.
This is not a car forum.You ridiculed the OP for buying a Honda. I usually enjoy your posts and I expect better from you.I know people who could write a check to buy the car dealership, but just drive a Chevrolet truck instead. Small-timers, I suppose. And don't go into the "appreciation of fine motorcars". Most owners of new imported luxury vehicles couldn't find the hole that the coolant goes into.
Cars are the place for reverse snobbery. If anyone deserves to be laughed at it is the person who requires an expensive vehicle to demonstrate his self worth. There is nothing wrong with a Honda or Toyota.

Your message to the buyer:"The standard for measuring sleeves on dress shirts is to lay the shirt flat on a table and then measure from the middle of the neck label to the end of the sleeve. These shirts have been measured using that method and measure 33 inches. I think you are measuring from the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve. "Buyer's message:"I have been buying shirts for 50 years. I wear 33 sleeve these are not a 33 sleeve. The manner you describe measuring a...
I do not, but then neither does Brooks Brothers or any other retailer of shirts that I know of. I sell 1500 to 2000 shirts every year and I have never had this come up. The shirt was a BB custom made, so it didn't have measurements on the neck label. But that doesn't matter, because I can accurately measure a shirt.
