Hell hath no fury....



I love ebay. Some of you may have noticed that my web address relates to auctions and all that they may offer. Most of my ebay experiences have been good. I've met wonderful people (yes...as in "I'm in town...how about we meet up for a drink and talk about the fabulous couch I bought from you?!") BUT...every so often you meet a jerk.

I had recently bought a John Robshaw quilt from a seller and upon arrival there was no mistaking that this was a "seconds" or from the poor workmanship even a "thirds". When I contacted the seller and let him know my disappointment I was given a reply of "sorry sucker, you should have asked what it looked like" or something to that effect. I was not happy. I was furious.

I contacted Paypal and let them be the mediator and within one week it was decided that I will be getting my monies returned from Mr. Jerk Seller. Of course, I want to contact him and stick my tongue out and tell him how things could be so much easier if you were open to listening to others...but I won't. But I am carefully calculating the amount of characters I may use for negative feedback in regards to this seller who cares more for money than for people.

Yeah for you for getting you money back.

It is so disappointing when people are jerks and feel that money is more important than people.

That seller should have been honest on the post that it was not good quality workmanship!
what goes around comes around, I am sure you are not the only one and he will be reeping his bad karma from here to eternity!

totally agree with you Callie! I told him that I enjoy selling on Ebay for the simple pleasure of realizing that my buyers will be delivered happiness through the mail..it makes me happy to make others feel great about their purchase.

Hi Donna, I read your blog often and always enjoy it. Since this post was about EBAY I just had to comment: Unfortunatly EBAY has changed drastically since the days we were a buying and a selling crazy girls. I am sorry you had a bad experience. Congrat's on your Cupcake book series. I knew you would be famous someday!! Take care.
