Just want to write out a petty rant...ebay related

I'm desperate for money so I whittled my DDs Care Bear stash down and ebayed the rest. Apparently I mistyped the size of one bear. I was listing multiples in a row so I just messed up. It was a 10" bear and I listed it as a 13". Sold for 2.99 plus 3.00 shipping. After pp fees, ebay fees and shipping I'm not sure I made any money and may have even lost money. Whatever...it sold so I'm going to ship it. Buyer messages me saying the bear isn't 13"..my bad. I apologize profusely, offer a refund yadda yadda. Buyer doesn't want to return on his dime..can't blame him because he only paid 5.99 for the dang thing (and it talked! gah what a steal). He mentioned me refunding half...so I'm like laughing because he wants me to refund 1.50. Sure whatever dude. I actually wrote "lol" in the message because I couldn't help myself. Probably not a good move. Anyway, I don't know whether to keep laughing or be pissed off. I can't pay rent or my utilities and this dude is griping over a 3" difference in a care bear LOL I'm so numb at the moment I want to tell him where he can shove the care bear because I really don't care about my ebay feedback. Guess hard times put life in perspective huh lol

*just a side note: I wrote this light heartedly with a bit if humor because I don't know whether to laugh, cry or jump off a cliff right now with the current state of things...just felt like writing so maybe it would help get it off my chest so I could sleep (and no I'm not really going to jump off a cliff)

Re: Just want to write out a petty rant...ebay related

I totally think this is a laughing moment ( no cliff jumping required). Just remember no matter how bad your life gets .... you will never be a man on eBay buying care bears, and then waiting for them to arrive so you can MEASURE them and ask for a $1.50 refund! I say you have already succeeded in having a better life so things will just keep getting better. I find watching a few Springer episodes always boosts my view of how well my life is going. How can you feel anything other than positive when you arent on TV learning your girlfriend is really your half sister and she left you for your father , but good news the 88 year old neighbor has a crush on you and your dog but couldn't tell you until now because she had to wait for her 23 year old lover to go back to jail. Throw in a half naked fist fight on national television and I feel like my life is going great!!!

I hope things get better soon. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.

Ok...I am thinking that the bear is only missing 23% of his height so you just would need to refund 23% of the purchase price

sorry you got a funky buyer.

I'd tell him that you will take the bear back and refund him his purchase price but he will have to pay shipping back per paypal policy. That you are very sorry you made a mistake but the bear is worth what he paid.
