I wonder if he’s related the guy a friend of mine had a run in with while cycling?

So I had a Twilight Zoneish experience with another cyclist yesterday riding home.

On warm sunny days, the Strand is crowded, so I usually take the street in Hermosa. That means stopping for several stop signs along the way.

I had ridden past Pier and was waiting at the stop light just south of there. The light changed and a millennial looking guy on a fixie swooped by when the light turned green.

There is a stop sign, another stop sign a short block further. The next stop sign is about 0.2 mile further. We both stop at the first stop sign, but at the next, the guy on the fixie rolls through at about 10 MPH. Since I stopped, he is now 30 yards or so ahead of me and pedaling furiously.

About halfway into the block I caught him and he suddenly slowed down.

"I don't want to ride near you. People like you are dangerous and give cyclists a bad name."

WTF?

"What are you talking about?"

"You ran that stop sign back there. I hate when people do that."

That is a heck of a thing to accuse me of. I am in the 3 sigma minority of cyclists that make a point of stopping at stop signs. I've had the police stop me to compliment me on it.

"I'm afraid you your law correct, but your facts incorrect. I stopped. You rolled through, and that's why you left the intersection 30 yards ahead of me."

He wasn't having it ... shaking his head and wagging his finger at me.

Flippin bizarre.

Comment and a question:

1. I buy a lot of shirts on eBay. If you don't list p2p and length, I just assume you are a lazy seller, and not someone worth dealing with. The great thing about eBay is that twenty other sellers have similar items.

2. When eBay does a site-wide discount (like today's 15%), do they eat the discount, or do the sellers? Assume eBay does, I guess.

Anyone know what the deal is with these BB labels? I've seen them every so often in the thrifts. Are they fugazi, outlet, something else???

Found out the hard way that the RealReal doesn’t eat the discount and takes it out of the consignors profits.
Never again, assholes
I have this feeling that company is going to the dogs sooner or later.

Q: I just noticed when composing new listings that the Size in Item Specifics no longer offers a dropdown list and becomes a write your own format. I wonder how this change will affect listing visibility in search and is the labeled size or converted size more preferred?

When eBay runs those occasional 15% sitewide sales, have any of you revised your listings to include the discount code in your titles? As in "Use XXXCODE2018 and save 15%"

I know its fairly well advertised on the landing page, but I imagine not everyone would see it, especially if they were linked to your listing through a search.
