Ebay rant...

if I state in the auction that I will ship to the US only, why the hell do I get a half dozen people asking how much shipping is to Aus, Canada, etc?

Ok, I'm done

Because there are far more lazy, illiterate, mental pygmies (I've been dying to use that phrase) out there than people who actually take the time to read.

Re: Ebay rant...

Because it defaults to "only ships in the USA" so we gotta ask.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Ebay rant...

Perfect example. We just got an email asking for photos of the center stand... on a Harley Electra Glide Classic.

Why are you bitching?
These are the same morons who are buying items off ebay for $5 under or over the price of new and then have to have shipping on top.

I was after some Sidi boots a couple of years ago and the first 4 auctions I was in on they sold for $220-$230. Used boots!?!? I emailed all the winners and asked why they did not just buy them new for $230? I got no reponses back.

There are some who call me ............................Tim

I've come across people that find ebay is their window to the world when it comes to locating things. They don't understand how to look for stuff elsewhere, consider that it's even available, or get some sort of thrill out of the bidding process.

Well they can go and get their thrills somewhere else. I am trying to get a reat shock and a lap timer.

Then just quote a number that would make it worth your while, and demand payment before shipping ...

"That will be US$120 shipping on those $40 mirror plates, and the money needs to clear first. thank you."
