    Nah...I don't feel bad at all.

    When I consider that all of the "cities" it thrift in (Harrisburg, Baltimore, York, Hanover and Lancaster) total about 800,000 people. I'm doing pretty well considering NYC is around 8.25 Million.

    When I get my "Ferrari" I will feel even better.

    Sigh. I was afraid of that. Back to my day job I guess - that's hard enough.

    65% hard work
    10% dedication
    5% coffee and cigarettes
    5% whiskey
    5% waking up at 5:30am and going to bed at midnight
    5% competitive spirit
    2% blood (damn packing tape guns)
    1% sweat (knew i should have put central AC ducts in the office)
    1% tears (goddamn it why is there a case open and my response is required)

    Mine is close to the same

    65% hard work
    10% dedication
    5% coffee and cigarettes
    5% whiskey
    5% waking up at 6am and going to bed at 1am
    5% competitive spirit
    2% tendonitis (damn packing tape guns)
    1% sweat (knew i should have put central AC ducts in the office) Don't bother....it is futile when surrounded by so much wool.
    1% cursing (goddamn it why is there a case open and my response is required)

    And the missing 1%....just because you love it.

    Well, you're frickin' rockin' it, as we all know. Flip those percentages but keep the wording in place and it's the secret to my lack of success on eBay...though I did a test run back in January where I devoted about 50 hard hours that month and netted what I do at my job for the entire month, so I think I could survive on flipping if I had to. Which would be the motivation behind the work.

    How was it refunded if he never shipped them back? He should have to provide proof of return shipping. He won't be able to reopen a case through Paypal, but chargeback would still be posible.
