my 2 Cents bad transaction

I am just a bit irritated. I want to know if anyone else would be. I just need to know if i'm being unreasonable. I purchased an item from HC. I always pay after i hit bin if it's someone i don't know and it's an individual and not a shop. It was a spots item. Anyhow, i went to pay for the item and it was not linked to paypal. it said to "contact the seller". i did that. the seller said that "it should work". i went back and tried to pay for the item again...it did not work. i told the seller that they must have some option checked off or something that would prevent the purchase order being linked with my paypal. i do not like to leave items in my purchase list as "unpaid" or have items that are not linked to the invoice or purchase order. anyhow, the seller gave me their e mail for their pp account. it was about a 24 hour window...30 tops (including sleeping at night)...and i sent in the money the following morning after contacting the seller one more time and telling them they should contact the hc admin to help them with the account problem . all this is happening on the weekend...dh is home, kids are home...it's not like during the week when it's me and one or two kids and i'm on the computer knitting and socializing. the weekend is "family time". the house wall full! i'm not sitting at the computer most days waiting for e mails on botched sales anyhow! i got a refund notice from the person hours later. because they decided to relist the item to see if relisting the item solved the payment problem that i was having! in the meanwhile, SOMEONE ELSE BOUGHT THE FRIGGEN ITEM. i would have though if they were re-listing it for me...it would have said "reserved listing for ....." ! i then see that the same yarn and same base was listed a few times and i missed it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I would be really upset and would contact the seller about it if it were me. Not sure what they could do but I would def leave appropriate feedback as well! That would be extrememly irritating! I know PP has been having issues but to refund then relist and not even mark it for you! UGH!!! IM sorry!
