you know exactly what you're in for when you go to a carnage event, so why are you complaining?

so you go to Italy, then hover over Venice and it shows you where you can fly from

Would be handy…………if it was kept up to date.

Just sold something on eBay, the sniper who won starts questioning the authenticity after they'd won it, asking for additional pictures and shit. So fucking annoying.

just say its authentic and that you've already packaged it up to send to the winner.

mates want to go on holiday for that great period that is 10 days.. why do people go for 10 days..

7 days, 360 quid, 10 days, 460 quid, 2 weeks, 380 quid… i'm much more a fan of two weeks myself.

Too late Sad Up was until 5am sending him pics of the serial, box, authenticity card, and they still kept asking questions! He finished every email with "Once you do this I will pay immediately". Now he's stopped replying to my emails, fucking cunt.

I fucking hate ebay, unless you are selling something that's guaranteed to shift for £50+ it's not worth the aggro, I have stacks of stuff that doesn't fit (most of which I bought off here) that could be ebayed but the number of times buyers fuck you about is soul destroying. Then you get rinsed by ebay / paypal fees.

Not sure if I'm being a luddite but it takes me at least 20 minutes to do photos, copy them onto PC and fill in all the item description shit on an ebay auction. Lose the will to live after about 5mins and give up, especially when you remember that you will also have to package it all up and make another hellish trip to the post office.

dont even start that mate, i hate the fucking thing so much, vowed to never ever use it to sell again. (hardly ever buy from it either anymore), but its got me back again yesterday after years cos i want to have a clearout of a load of trainers, and already i want it dead cos of the bollocks it causes. cant see how people earn a living from that shit and the lowlife cunts who frequent it.

Selling stuff is fucking long, definitely takes longer than it should. I only did it cos it was a bunch of high value items, but unfortunately in total I'm gonna get charged £100 for eBay fees. FUUUUUUUUUUU

I only ever do buy it now listings and tick the "immediate paypal payment required" option. Still get hassle from retards but a lot less than standard auctions

Plus when I list stuff, I click on my last auction, click "sell similar" and then the only thing you have to change is the description and photos. Everything else, like postage, paypal email address etc is already filled in for you

Ahh yeh, should have ticked that box, still waiting payment from 2 others as well as this spastic.

I do use the sell similar, I think it's the picture taking that takes the longest.

I also hate watchers who never have the intention of bidding. There's been so many times where I've listed something and get 30+ watchers and then no one even bids the fucking starting price. What's the point in watching?!

This should all probs go into the eBay/PayPal thread, but it was just pissing me off. I'm done complaining though, fuck you Mr Kim.

I bought a phone with wifi for this exact reason. Take the photos then upload straight to flikr so it's less hassle
