    Don't they know I need their money to pay for MY summer vacation?!

    So inconsiderate.

    Shit, had a case opened and it is totally my wife's fault. I was in SF last week for a conference and had some guy buy a thin client from me. I called my wife and asked her to box it up. I told her where it was sitting and I said it is a little box and it's power cord. The case said the guy only received the power cord... My wife tells me there is a box inline on the power cord and that is what she thought I was talking about! ARGHHHHHH

    So I apologized profusely boxed up the device and sent it to him, also sent him a 20% discount for his trouble. This is one time that a negative rating is truly deserved and it is all my wife's fault.

    Going to gross about half of what I did in February. I do have some inventory building up, but I always list the best stuff within a day or two of buying it.

    Too much butter can be bad for you.

    Keep it. Wear it for a bit then sell it if you decide it's not for you.

    I did wear it once for a few minutes, and it is for me. But summer's coming up with waning opportunities to wear it - might as well list it and see what happens.

    Wait a minute. If you aren't going to wear it in the summer, chances are most other people aren't going to either. Might want to hold it until fall, turn the AC way down and enjoy it in the house.

    Agreed...summer is already here in the dirty south, though if I were still in Portland I could wear it another month or so in the evenings. I'll toss it on as a BIN at what I want for it and if it doesn't sell, I'll copy the listing files over to my "list next autumn" folder.

    I still list basic tweeds year around, and they do sell! But the special tweeds, or norfolk's are being kept for winter.

    Just sold a basic sack trad southwick tweed for 80+...I'll take it!
