Should I respond to this eBay seller? - Page 2

post #16 of 67
Good thing you blocked him. Now he won't be able to buy your used pants! I've sold tens of thousands of discontinued toys and I always get these crazy emails from people who have no intention of buying who are angry that I've marked the item up 300% (along with everyone else). For some reason, there are these proactive people who get all worked up about every thing. Great story: I was sitting in Borders reading magazines and this lady comes in panting and running towards the register and she is frantically yelling "a green Honda with license plate xxxxx (she had a little piece of paper with it written down) has its lights on." She waits by the exit while the associate goes to a microphone to announce it on the PA system. And then she stands waiting to see if anyone responds. About 3 minutes pass and nobody responds. She runs outside and comes back a minute later and goes "the lights are still on on that Honda." The associate says firmly "ma'am, let it go. I'm not making another announcement. The owner is probably in Starbucks next door." THe lady runs off to Starbucks and everyone is having a good laugh. This thread reminded me of that. "Hey you guise!! There are these piss stains on these pants and they're selling on the internets!"

I would reply with the name of a good urologist, letting him know that while it may be expensive, it'll be a good investment because he'll be able to command a better price for his pants once he's been treated.

OT, those stains may well be ball sweat, pretty sure urine would come out if dry cleaned, whereas sack sweat probably won't (like pit sweat its stains are more permanent).

Now, if I'm right about the above, would that make things better or worse?

that, and who buys them? Pissing your pants is bad enough; wearing said pants is disgusting; but buying someone elses is next-level gross.

Haha getting a little worked up are we? To be honest I'm not sure why a little runt like you is getting so worked up over my post, but whatever. Edit: Also, this is styleforum where a lot of people use eBay and try to avoid bad sellers. Is it really that out of place? Are you the seller or something?

I just find it funny. Everything in this thread is funny. The beginning premise of urine-stained pants on the internet is funny. And as a seller myself, I find it more funny. And as an observer of humanity, I especially enjoy the humor (why do you think I remember the story of the lady and the green Honda?). I'm glad you wrote "haha" and that you too find it funny. Life should be fun. That's why I'm telling you to let it go. Have fun. Enjoy the rest of the forums and try to find beauty in life. Don't dwell on urine-stained pants, man. There are other pants in the sea. Some without urine stains too. Your low post count indicates you're new to the forum. There are wonderful discussions on clean pants on SF. Explore it.

I'm sorry if I got you more pissed (pardon the pun). Don't sweat it (sorry, can't help myself). I just enjoy observing humanity. My apologies. I'll try to constrict (seriously, that's the last one) myself to constructive criticism from now on.

Why is he a bad seller? If he just said the pants were in good conditions and when they arrived the buyer discovered they were stained that badly there would be a case to be made.

However he did say they were stained and showed photos of said stain.

I agree with you as I wouldn't buy them either but there are obviously people who will. As long an they can make an informed decision then it's nobody's business but theirs.

First you stick your nose in where it wasn't wanted and now, intentioally or not, your inferring that he's a bad seller when everything he has done is fair and above board

This is why I can't bring myself to buy pants from peeBay.

Because he sold what he claimed to sell. Come on!

Mind your own business and get on with your life not his. An rather silly post and intervention all told.

If ten people emailed the seller and told him about describing as "excellent" a pair of pissed pants, maybe he would start describing them as they are - pissed and vomit inducing.

Tell him to wear a diaper and piss off.
