^^^_0 strikes again

In better news, I don't know if they've always done this, but ebay tracks INR cases and will auto close if they show as delivered, so we don't have to keep an eye on it. Maybe I've just never had something lost actually show up in the necessary timeframe.

Block if you wish:

Hasn't really done anything to me, personally, other than badger me about making him an offer on an item since he wasn't able to, most likely due to unpaid item strikes. He finally threw out a number and I was thinking about sending an offer for that amount until I looked at the feedback he left for others. Out of the first 25, there were more negs/neutral than positives, so I just decided to block.

Has anyone shipped prepared food? I want to send a couple of homemade soups to a friend as part of a care package. What would be the cheapest way to go about it? Thanks!

I’d can it to preserve freshness and ship with the jar wrapped a few times to prevent leakage if the jar breaks. I’ve normally shipped care packages via USPS Priority, since they’ve always been too heavy for First Class.

Thanks. I was looking online and many places recommended special styrofoam insulated food boxes, which I found to be overkill.

I hate return season… The Arc jacket was delivered four weeks ago. At least no one is claiming SNAD, but it irks me that I have to take returns for a month. This transaction will have taken up half the winter season before it gets back to me.

Hate this. I had someone claim a pair of vilebrequin was fake and returned it after the summer was over. Took exactly 30 days to send it back.

Dear seller, something has happened to me and I need luxury clothing at a discounted rate. God Bless.
How many different versions of some stupid sob story have you received for a discount on a unnecessary, luxury item?

I sent a message I shouldn't have (while posting this), and got an immediate response. This potential buyer went to the ex-president's "when your lie doesn't work, double down" school of negotiation.

I always love getting these requests. I seem to get the poor, recent college grad who needs a Brioni suit or shell Aldens for their first job.

Any time I receive a message with the word "kindly," I just delete it and move on.

Woman who claims to wear a 38DD with a 30 inch waist wants to know if this fleece will fit her. Measurements and the Patagonia size chart are in the listing. I told her I am not sure about the fit.

Her: will you sell it to me for $20 if it fits? Briefly considered asking for proof of actual DD's, but there's a higher bid on the item already. And there are enough free pictures of those on the web, so I'll keep the money thank you.
