    Something in the burgundy realm would also work rather than grays/silvers

    Idiots asking for measurements on ebay.

    A guy asked me for a shoulder measurement on a sweater a week ago. I gave the measurement and he never bid. Now on an identical sweater he is asking for waist and sleeve measurements. So apparently the shoulder was not a problem, but he did not bid. Waist is a stupid question on a sweater, as is sleeve unless you are very tall. Fuck him. Buy it or don't buy it.

    That was the point I was trying to make: following those simple rules of thumb that "everyone" knows leads to results that are just silly.

    Ebay and B&S I get the most asinine questions from people. The reason is because they are picky and cheap, that is why they are on there. If you think you include in the description everything you could possible think of, some asshole with come at you with something so bizarre it will blow your mind. The questions that I have gotten for $40 shirts you would think these people were about to spend $40,000.

    I have always been a buyer and never a seller on ebay, but I try to be reasonable in my dealings with sellers. I never ask questions unless a) I'm very serious about buying and b) my decision whether or not to buy really does hinge on the answer to the question. That's actually pretty rare.

    Same here. I used to purchase a lot, but nothing within the last few years. I ran into too many problems even as a buyer; I've never been a seller on eBay.

    This is why I loathe working in HR "Our client is seeking very specialised skills for this position, unfortunately your application was considered in the final shortlist."

    I mean WTF does this dumb bint even read her mail before she sends it out. Fucking morons!

    When I see news stories about celebrities like Danica Patrick getting divorced, I think for a second "oh good, I'm back in the running." But probably I'm not in the running at all.

    Mate of mine dropped more than a grand at a strip club tonight and the byproduct for me was spoiling my Corneliani suit which happens to be my go to navy. Even after cigarettes my suit smells like her coconut shampoo on top and literally like her on the bottom.

    I have to dry clean. This particular suit picks up scents anywhere. The worse was sitting in a place with a robata grill.
