    The J Press is labeled a 42R and fits me pretty well, except for the sleeves needing an extra 1/2" or so

    [EDIT: Just found them. Phew.]

    Anyone ever misplace an item you listed on eBay?

    I just sold a pair of Ferragamo wingtips. Went to box them up to ship and...they're nowhere to be found. Either they were stolen (I had a guy doing repairs in my apartment this week while I wasn't there) or I accidentally tossed them out with the trash.

    Any tips on how to handle this with the buyer to avoid negative feedback?

    Once I sold a laptop that I hadn't used in forever. Buyer paid, and although it had worked fine the last time I tried it, figured it couldn't hurt to try. Lo and behold, batter no longer holds a charge. I just e-mailed the guy and very politely said, listen, I discovered a problem, and I'm about to issue you a refund but I can ship the computer anyway if you'd prefer. He thanked me and took his money back. No harm, no foul. I bet if I'd just refunded him and then apologized right away, explaining the situation, he would've reacted the same way. Still have 100%.

    Tl,dr - Just talk to the guy nicely and display your sterling charm and customer-service skills. Guy'll probably just be happy you aren't scamming him.

    ^^ Thanks for the advice. Luckily I just found them, in a very unlikely place. Awkward situation avoided this time.

    +1 I've had something similar happen that either an item got lost somehow...or I noticed damage when packing (missing button, etc) that was somehow missed when cleaning, taking pictures and listing the 1st time around. Best bet is to just offer a full refund or a partial refund and ship up to the buyer of course. I think most normal people understand mistakes happen and would rather deal with an honest upfront seller instead of a guy trying to pull a fast one.
