Ugh, What is it about eBay?

 

The Warpaint profile on the Victor was obviously never posted and I ended up having to go to eBay to get a refund. I suspect he didn't want to sell the book for the price I paid.

 

The Airfix Blenheim, which was sold unboxed, arrived in an Amazon-style book sleeve and once I realised what the parcel was, my heart sank. Sure enough, once I had opened the package, the cracked transparencies and damaged fuselage were evident. All because the seller couldn't be bothered to find a suitable box. I've had to request a refund.

 

This year I've had way more than my fair share of eBay problems, with things not turning up, turning up broken or having been started when they were described as unstarted. It's really starting to get on my nerves now!

Some of us are reliable sellers with Ebay shops :)

 

thanks

Mike

I’ve certainly had a couple of problems with bidders this year with one even winning the bid and then asking to cancel because they couldn’t afford it! Huge waste of my time relisting and whatnot. As a seller though I do try and make the effort with p&p.

I had one of those wasters a couple of years back too - only time I've given negative feedback, and then he had the nerve to ask e-bay to remove it (which they didn't!)

Again from good old ebay UK a used Monogram '29 Ford Roadster Pickup, just a few bits missing to make a whole one (a frontwheel & tyre) but two running board frames/two chassis/two bonnets/hoods etc, so plenty to build at least one and a half as soon as I find another front wheel & tyre!

I have to say that Donna Summer has done some very good stuff, but the album (and the Judy album) is to accompany a book being published about it late next year more than me being a fan.

 

As you can guess from my avatar ( ? ) I mostly like the   crashing drums throbbing bass, wailing guitar and howling voice of "rock", but I'm also a great fan of pop music. Probably because my teen years coincided with the golden decade of pop music, 1963 - 1973, though in fairness the years between 1973 and 2003 produced some great pop as well.

 

Disco of course is included in "pop" music, and in all honesty Disco - at least over here - had to be good to compete with punk, rock, and pop.

 

I liked disco stuff, in the same way as I liked good pop.

 

Which is why I have a Boney M greatest hits and Donna Summer greatest hits nestling on my CD racks, along with the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever - which I remember my wife and I going to see in 1977 and enjoyed it as much as Star Wars later that year. (At least I did, I suspect my wife preferred Saturday night fever.)

 

But I also have a couple of thousand "rock"/metal/punk/classical/jazz/ pop/prog/folk/soul/singer songwriter etc. cd's on those racks as well!
