Sometimes ebay can be a fun place to find unique treasures at a great price. Sometimes it’s a battlefield of frustration and frantic bidding where, if I could reach into my computer and slap some people, I would. I’d break their keyboards, too, if I could.
Last winter when I was looking for a cast iron floor grate, I found an ebay enemy named island_resident. She outbid me on every grate auction. She was driving me insane, and then she bought a grate that I had for sale. Oh, the irony!
Now that I’m again searching for something specific, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 (translation: camera), I have a fresh crop of enemies bidding against me. Don’t they understand that I NEED a camera? Can’t they just back off once? Please? I have lost eleven, ELEVEN auctions in the past three days to the same small group of camera-hunters. We really need to get together and share.
