Yeah, I was a TA (teaching assistant) for some undergraduate Education courses at UC Santa Cruz. One Quarter, we had (no joke!) 9<------Nine! Grandmothers, 1 Father, 1 Mother, 2 sisters, and 4 sundry pets pass on, each and everyone right before the day of the midterm, final, or final paper was due. Grandpas, tho, they're a hardy bunch!

Yeah....

Mai Tai, the power is strong with you...

Although my family was in perfect health when you purchased an eBay item from me, the day after I shipped it my great nephew had a fever spike of 104...


Oh, ouch! Sorry about that. I just re-read this thread tonight. No wonder you were pretty adamant in telling me that all of your tiki stuff from your move has been sold, and there isn't any more stuff around! Maybe I should have a friend start buying stuff for me instead.

I'm sure a lot of people around here want me to buy something from KohalaCharms. JOKE! That's a joke!!! Funny!!! A-hahahahahahahaha!!!

Seriously, that is funny. But I really did sell all that I had to sell (or am willing to get rid of at this time). I had a string of health issues starting with my great nephew. It was if my family was handing off the baton in a hospital relay race. It went from my great nephew, to my sister, to her son, to my other sister, to my Mom's boyfriend. I wish I could really blame it on you but it's just a co-inky dink. Otherwise I would have cursed you with "negative feedback" Don't buy from this guy! He will curse your family's health! I'm not kidding!"

The good news is everyone's fine now. I won't put you on the "banned" list. All though I might will you into the corn. (Joking, of course!)

oh, and the guy who was "in the hospital" finally sent the money order. It was postmarked last Friday. The power of eBay feedback rules once again!

Once again, the death in the family has appeared.

I sold an item to someone last week, today I got this notice

Quote:
I have not forgotten about the doll. I had a death in the funeral my mother passed from cancer she had for 12 yrs I will send payment out money order on thursday let me know if its ok Again i am sorry. Chris please send me your address so i can make sure i have the correct address



The funny thing is my name is not Chris, nor did he buy a doll from me. However he does owe me a big chunk of change. Is it wrong for me not to be sympathetic when it appears to be a form letter? I noticed on his eBay feedback that he has purchased around 20 items in the past two days... hmmmmm...

I gave up on eBay. I didn't have any bad experiences, but I figured if I kept using it, I might kill off some relatives or close friends.

After re-reading this thread, I'm tempted to change the title to "Don't Post On This Thread, Or You Might End Up On Bali Hijinks!!!"

I miss TikiFish.

HA! I've bought only one thing on e-bay (Trader Vic's ashtray) and have never sold anything there. I guess I'm old fashioned, I prefer a handshake and a smile.

OFF TOPIC


I miss TikiFish. - Mai Tai-

A common misconception, the Tiki Fish is not extinct. Tiki Fish are still plentiful and fairly common. Most fish shops and even major grocery chains will currently have them as July-September is Tiki Fish season.

The Tiki Fish have often been confused with the Teepee Fish which is almost completely extinct due to the popularity of Teepee Fish oil in the 19th century. (It was most commonly used to oil Buffalo hunters rifles and Fur Seal clubs.)

Tiki Fish have thrived as they are bottom feeders which can consume all sorts of garbage (and even manure pellets in the case of the farmed Tiki Fish) yet their flesh is firm and white and is excellent smoked or in fish sticks.
