Damn Ebay Whores
 
I was trying to win these 2.5 bar map sensors, so I put in my first bid. Waited, of course, got outbidded at 12.50. So, I waited until there was 7mins left and started bidding from there. I hate those people that just sit there and stare at their computer waiting, just turns into a showdown of who is luckiest when the auction ends and who has the highest bid. Wait, I was doing the same thing, shit. Oh well, damn Ebay whores.:gay:

thats how it works. Like most things in life, to get the best for yourself, you gotta learn to work the system wether it seems fair or not. Yeah it gets me sometimes too, but thats how life, school, work, and pretty much everything works in this society.

Not as bad as when you think you're winning the auction free and clear and in the last 10 seconds someone snipes it out of your hands.

People that bid on shit when theres days left in the auction are just fucking up the price.

Heres how I ebay... I find something that I want, set a reminder on my phone to make sure I'm at a fast computer with broadband. Decide how much I'm willing to spend, my limit. Open up a second window, log in, enter my maximum price and wait. Use the first window to keep track of time, with about 4 seconds left in auction I hit submit. Doing that I win 98% of what I'm looking for, and never get 'sniped' at the last second. After I pressed that button, if the previous bidder has a higher max bid, I lose the item as they're willing to pay more than me.

What pisses me off is there'll be something with like 6 days left and some jerkoff bids on it. The only point of that is to jack up the price for someone whos actually interested in it.

oh, and ROFL @ miataz getting pwned.

zoomnick 03-02-2008 05:55 AM

oh.shit! i guess im a ebay whore......

Amen to that! Some people doesn't understand it's fucking useless to bid 6 days before the end.... But sometimes, I just can't stop thinking that it's the seller who is doing that with multiple accounts just to get more $$$

And Driftbendito, I don't want to start a war here but: You must be a total redneck to think that everybody hates Canadians... In fact more people on this planet hates USA than Canada and it's a fact. How many times you can see USA people with a Canada flag when they are in an other country vs the opposite? :giggle: Why do you think? Because if they had a star and stripes, they could have some problems and not to mention you can more easily get ripped off when you buy something.

My 0.02 (Umm sorry Driftbendito, for you it will be 0.03 with the exchange rate:giggle:)
