I wanted to ask this guy WTF he was thinking when he wrote this...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=29460&item=3915533812&rd=1

...heres my favorite part:

"EBAY ALSO SAYS BIDDERS SHOULD ALLOW 2 WEEKS FOR MAIL DELIVERY & SOME METHODS OF SHIPPING MAY BE LONGER, THIS 2 WEEKS IS FOR THE MAIL DELIVERY OF THE ITEM,AFTER THE ITEM HAS BEEN SHIPPED. THIS IS FROM EBAYS PRINTED WORDS. MY MATH SAYS THAT IF YOU ADD THE 30 DAYS SELLERS HAVE TO SHIP ITEMS PLUS THE 2 WEEKS+ FOR MAIL DELIVERY, THAT MEANS THE ITEM'S ARRIVAL COULD BE UP TO 44 DAYS OR LONGER BEFORE IT IS EVEN CONSIDERED LATE. "


What an absolute moron!!!

He's a big seller but I see that he's had 45 neg feedback in the last year and a quick glance showed that a few were from his slow shipping, and more than one said to the effect - Nice item. Takes forever to get, so be patient.
I wonder if the winner would be able to send payment sometime late August?

My mind was slipping away just reading his @#$& novella.

Someone needs to go over to his house and steal his Caps Lock button! We'll hold it captive, then once he's paid the ransom for it - we'll offer to ship it back. Ehehehehe.

I'd like to think that someone would be willing to take his whole computer away from him...maybe he does his listing down at the public library or internet cafe?

This guy has some serious mental problems!

I envision a house with 50 cats and garbage from the past 2 years.

Have you noticed how much feedback is from the same people, calling him by his first name?

Subtle, Larry!

What does it say about the people that are bidding on his stuff though, think they all need to be put in a leaky boat with no paddles.

As of 2pm PST there's been four bids on the thing today alone. Apparently Buford & Lucy don't mind late shipping.

Did anyone notice that one of Larry's feedbacks said: "Thank you for the marbles!!!!!!!! "

We all knew that Larry had lost his. Now we know where they went.

That posting reminds me of the old Far Side cartoon - 'how nature says STAY AWAY'!

I got about a minute into the text, scrolled down, and began to wonder if I could carve one of those in the time it would take to finish reading the auction...

what I can't stand is the ALL CAPS approach.

Yeah, somewhere in all that it could say "CUCK OFF LOSER I WILL NEVER SEND THIS BECAUSE I BURNED IT IN A FIRE" and then he'd have you by the fine print. "IF YOU READ THE AUCTION IT CLEARLY SAYS THE ITEM WAS DESTROYED."

It might be good to save this guy and check his auctions over the next year and see if the writing gets even longer and more bizarre. He may begin talking about the CIA or aliens or other pesky people messing with him...

What an asshole! Because Ebay says I can wait 30 days before I have to send things I'll wait 30 days? - WTF??! I know a lot of Ebay sellers are slow in sending stuff - using the death in a family and family emergency cop out anytime they're too damn lazy to pull themselves away from daytime TV and go to the post office - but to advertise that the stuff is going to take over a month to ship has got to be the lamest! But don't leave him a negative feedback - he promises to return all negative comments!
