    What the f*ck is up with this auction - so WEIRD.

    Male flight attendants?
    Is this guy nuts, trawling for gay sex, or just trying to mug some poor sartorialist.

    Pity, 'cause it's a coat I would definitely buy, for under 50 or 60 bucks.

    Quite an auction! Not a bad coat, but not your typical auction or terms.

    The seller only takes cash!!! Now, that's unusual.

    His schedule to deliver the coat is amazing too. He's willing to go to parts of N.J., Midtown NYC, and possibly Westchester, or Connecticutt. That's amazing for a coat with a $10.00 start price. How much do you think his reserve price is?

    Well, perhaps there will be a very happy male flight attendant![​IMG]

    Hmm, I live about 5 minutes away from this guy. Too bad it's not my size.

    Just make sure you get the Magnum. I ain't no 36S, I'm a 42L. [​IMG]

    Hmm, I do have to wonder if he wears the women's fur coat he's also selling. At least some of the time...

    Bizarre pick-up/delivery terms. I can only assume he's a delivery guy with a regular route or a bus driver or similar? Maybe these items were left behind one day, so he's flipping them on eBay? Hey, I'm trying to be charitable here! [​IMG]

    I put it in a snipe for $50 (and planned to have Earthmover pick it up for me) but got outbid!
