Alcohol and credit cards

Do you think think people list items on ebay to end on a saturday evening in the hope the person buying is under he influence of alcohol?

It's a good job there's nothing i'd like as i've had a glass of vino too many :)

Don't worry James, forget the R/C  and get a 20" Plane Wave instead. I'll look after it for you. :D


 


I would agree with Mark, no good can come of it whether selling or buying.  Once you have committed, your'e stuffed.

Well i've woken up today and..... I've bought the 14" RC, an EQ2 to put it on, a second hand shed with a hole in the roof i thought i could use as an observatory and i've transferred £25,000 into Sunshine Nwembay's bank account as her husband has died and she needs help getting several million out of Africa.... Only joking. Nothing happened, but i do recall being under the influence of alcohol one year and watching children in need; now that was an expensive evening!

They're pretty heavy Martyn-I should probably be with you every time it is clear to make sure that you're using correct manual handling procedures :D

It's half the fun narrowing down the hundreds of different combinations of scopes, mounts, new vs second hand :) Also when my back is bad i don't even want to think about it, when it doesn't hurt i think i could lift anything. A lot of ABS stuff has gone by the time i've made my mind up, or they never reply to emails.

I'll get there one day. Hopefully sober.

I can relate to that, either ok or not ok, all or nothing kind of thing. Very though provoking, and that's without alcohol or credit cards. :-$

So what have you bought?

I didn't buy anything. I was teasing. I sent two emails to ABS yesterday about items which have been on there for sometime, but which i'd not noticed, but no replies yet.

I use an eBay sniping app to help me avoid situations like that. I work out the maximum I'd pay usually based on a percentage of new then set that as my limit and forget about it until I get an email telling me if I won or lost. ;)
