So, car guys: are you pimping it to the thrifts?  Rollin' on 20's?  Maybe you've got a lil' speedster, or I outright hate you for having what I cannot: a 300 SL Gullwing?

The wife used to have a 6 spd manual Audi TT that I liked to take out when she'd let me drive it peepwall[1].gif

She then traded it for a Infiniti FX35 that had a bit more practicality and less fun. Makes it easy when I buy something big, though.

On nice spring/summer/fall days I'll take this out:

Some could say I "thrifted" this car.

Here's my current predicament:

 

A guy bought a shirt from me and I shipped it to the address supplied by PayPal (in South Korea). I got a message from him saying he hasn't received the shirt (I sent it on May 22) so I checked the tracking information and everything and according to eBay, he has an Illinois address. Not sure if he wanted it to be sent to Illinois or what, but I'm pretty much telling him that he is a retard. 

 

This ever happen to anyone? If so, how did you handle it?

Jesus Christ, brah! That's why I try avoid shipping internationally. M-Fers can't seem to communicate properly. That's bad coming from an Asian guy, too.

I know, right? I'd honestly like to keep things in the states but foreigners (read: Asians) love western shirts, it seems. A Russkie (sp?) bought a linen Zegna sport shirt from me from a bogus account once - I have some pretty terrible luck sometimes...

 

On the upside: I had a Swiss dude buy a golfing laser range finder from me for like $240+ shipping, so the Swiss are good in my book and I haven't had any problems with Italy... yet (knock on wood).

That's a great start. You should definitely be telling the guy that he is a "retard." We all know that eBay/paypal favors the seller almost all of the time and that pnutpug has had nothing but great interactions with them as well.

You haven't had any issues sending clothing into Italy?  Are you marking the customs tags as something else - because - last I heard Italy has very strict laws against any imported clothing [regardless if it was originally Italian or not].  Not to mention their reputation for rifling...but if things have changed I'd be happy to hear that.

I've shipped stuff to italy and marked it as clothing before and pretty sure it's always been delivered. But yeah, I'm not sure what the exact rules on this are.

Womens.

Meet our spoiled brat Mia, 10 year old, German Shepherd, Husky, Akita, and Wolf mix. Alpha dog of the neighborhood.

You sentimental fools!
What is this, a dog thread?

Aw, animal thrifting. Dig it.

My thrifted Russian Blue, Charlie. Been had a little over 2 years ago. Loyal like a dog, and smart as all get-out.

467

It's funny, because I am allergic to animals, but when we got him, I thought, "just go for it." As it turns out, Russian Blues largely lack (or have a reduced amount of) the allergenic protein in their dander. So that was a welcome surprise.

467

BUT, he was like finding an navy blue Oxxford suit in my size, but that had a small hole in it that I didn't see before (ffffuuuu.gif). To basically offset the awesome that is my allergies not exploding daily, he is among the 1% of cats who can't process minerals properly and gets bladder infections. Fixed it with food, but that shit's expensive. But I wouldn't give this cat up for the world. And I've already dragged his ass to a hospital in a snow storm once, so it'd be pretty stupid to just give him up.

467

(I think I read someone's cat just died, so I hope this doesn't stir too many memories. I never used to understand people's attachment to their animals, but now I get it completely.)

I have these boots, and I paid full freight from REI. They are some serious boots for serious backpacking and mountaineering. They are also old-school and frowned upon by today's mountaineering set, which prefers lighter weight modern materials. But back in the day, you couldn't do any better than these.
