I stop and give the universal, hands in the air, sorry my bad gesture, but she, and what I presume to be her husband weren't having it. Both flipping me off. Husband was waving his arms all crazy, Coco the Monkey-style. If he had a heart attack right then, I would not have been surprised. It was then that I thought how ridiculous these people looked and that this is probably how I must look to other people when I do this. I smiled, waved and drove off, which seemed to only infuriate them more (which was kinda the plan). This has really helped me keep my road rage in check the last few weeks. The moral of this story: Just let it go and don't end up looking like Coco the Monkey.


CO-CO CO-CO CO-CO!

I bought two Oxxford SC on BINOBO because they were cheap, I thought I could list them better with real measurements and price them better and I was thinking I could make money on them.

 

They arrived today.  One of them is a 3/2 Sack SC.  It's actually really nice and I know 3/2 Sacks are hard to find and its an Oxxford Glen Plaid.  But, while getting it out of the box it was shoved in, I noticed two holes in the back.   The description says  Fair Condition Some light wear on fabric Missing one button.   I do not think two holes constitutes "light wear."   I noticed she offers returns, but she says buyer must pay return shipping.   I don't want to pay shipping when this is not light wear -- it has holes.  

 

I am wondering if anyone has had to deal with something like this with her.  As an ebay seller, I don't want to file a item not as described.  Is the best course of action to email requesting a return and arguing that I shouldn't have to pay for the return shipping because the holes were not disclosed? 

 

 

 

 

Not sure why you wouldn't initiate a return under NAD. I was under the impression that under the new rules in effect since February, NAD returns don't result in a defect for the seller.

Oh.  I didn't know that.

Yeah, this is the new criteria, just two metrics. Though they also ding you for late shipping, but I don't know how.

The only cases that result in a defect are the ones which you allow the buyer to escalate to Ebay which are then decided in the buyer's favor.

 

I had to eat the shipping cost on an item that was returned to sender by the Post Office because there was nothing showing that the buyer had rejected the package.

 

The buyer used an old address, the package was forwarded and then returned to me. Ebay wouldn't budge on allowing me to charge the buyer for shipping, so I refunded. It's just not worth a stupid defect over $2.60. But their policy is fucking stupid. The guy was in China, and admitted it via messaging, and returned home two weeks after the delivery attempt was made; and Ebay still said that if the case was escalated they would decide against me.

 

Yeah, I was a bit pissed off this morning.

What would you call this pattern?

Just got to write out a thank you note to go with an item I sold, starting with "Dear Ambassador..." so cool.

Well, that tops the message that started out "Hello Sir" and finished "Thank you for your service" that I wrote to a buyer with an APO address...

Dunno about that, but nice of you to take the time! I'm sure they'll appreciate the note!

I sold a pair of shoes to a former ambassador. I think he lived somewhere in California. Maybe the same guy?

These are going to a current Ambassador (and shipping to Manhattan) , so unlikely it's the same person. Either way really cool!

X-post from thrift thread, appreciate the help in advance.

Ferragamo question for the guru's.. Doubt it, but anyone happen to know if these Tramezza's Special Editions?! Don't think they are because they lack the "Special Edition" embossing on the sole, but I could not find a single pair with this style naming/label on the inner sole, besides the one pair of special edition Tramezza's listed on that other site.

So that would be some foreign ambassador to the UN, I assume?

That is why that person is the consummate professional, and why they are so successful.
