You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Technically, people are the pets/domestic animals of cats rather than the other way around, so the pet is whomever took the photo.

Love this guy's pleading for a sale in the second paragraph:



"I am in deep dog poo as I racked up $3,000 dollars worth in fines to the government."

you'd feel so confident sending this guy money wouldn't you!?

Don't jinx my bid!

Then again, my losing this acution would be a good thing.  I had to neg at least two different sellers today because items were incomplete and damaged.  In order to keep the incomplete-complete balance, I now completely hate eBay.  I expect items that are not listed by an Acaeum member to be missing bits (maps, pages, booklets) or be damaged (torn, taped, pencil, pen, marker).  Febreeze and smoke is a new addition to my collection.

As for this seller, serving time in jail should take some of the fine away and give him an excuse for shipping the items late.  :)

That's OK, we make exceptions for you, Poofrog! if he is really in a world of shit, one would be nuts to buy from him. You might end up having to return ship to Alcatraz.

I found this one quite funny. (Circus theme music). Step right up. Step right up folks. This classic module available on Amazon for only a billion dollars and the Amazon Seller has lousy feedback compared to me. I'm willing to start the bidding on a similar item for.....

Besides, you will always win on the "significantly different than description" PayPal dispute: I mean, really, the seller never said it came with vowels!


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.
