    I just find it funny. Everything in this thread is funny. The beginning premise of urine-stained pants on the internet is funny. And as a seller myself, I find it more funny. And as an observer of humanity, I especially enjoy the humor (why do you think I remember the story of the lady and the green Honda?).

    I'm glad you wrote "haha" and that you too find it funny. Life should be fun. That's why I'm telling you to let it go. Have fun. Enjoy the rest of the forums and try to find beauty in life. Don't dwell on urine-stained pants, man. There are other pants in the sea. Some without urine stains too.


    Here's to everyone only buying non piss stained pants [​IMG]

    I'm sorry if I got you more pissed (pardon the pun). Don't sweat it (sorry, can't help myself). I just enjoy observing humanity. My apologies. I'll try to constrict (seriously, that's the last one) myself to constructive criticism from now on.

    Don't let SF humor get you all frothed up. We're all just having fun. Urine good company.

    Edit: Also, this is styleforum where a lot of people use eBay and try to avoid bad sellers. Is it really that out of place? [​IMG]


    Why is he a bad seller? If he just said the pants were in good conditions and when they arrived the buyer discovered they were stained that badly there would be a case to be made.

    However he did say they were stained and showed photos of said stain.

    I agree with you as I wouldn't buy them either but there are obviously people who will. As long an they can make an informed decision then it's nobody's business but theirs.

    First you stick your nose in where it wasn't wanted and now, intentioally or not, your inferring that he's a bad seller when everything he has done is fair and above board

    Because he sold what he claimed to sell. Come on!

    If ten people emailed the seller and told him about describing as "excellent" a pair of pissed pants, maybe he would start describing them as they are - pissed and vomit inducing.

    seller turned out right, you turned out dead wrong, time for you to take it and shut the fuck up

    he didn't misadvertise, I bet "piss-stained crotch" is not even allowed in ebay descriptions

    obviously you have no good comeback, that's why you started this thread.

    stop harassing sellers. do you go into Subway and ask "why do you think you can sell tasteless papier mache sandwiches to white people for $5"? I think that ever time I pass a Subway, but I don't go inside and ask them. I mind my fucking business

    Actually, I don't think e-bay allows sex fetish items like used panties. You should come up with an elaborate complaint about how he's selling unsanitary items for urinophiliacs, or whatever it is, and report him to e-bay in an attempt to get his listings pulled.

    Frankly, if it were me, I'd just mind my own business. But if you did report him, this thread would become the most awesome threak of all time so, in the intererst of my personal entertainment, I think you should do it.

    complain to the "bay". This sounds like a listing violation...
