Everything was downhill after 9:30am. An ebay buyer is giving me grief over a vinyl record I sold her. Apparently, picking the no returns option for my listing is a ‘sneaky technique’ she takes issue with, when it’s in plain sight on the auction page and frankly, what can go wrong with a record that would necessitate a return? I’m not selling computers. I’m selling clothes and records.
And using Discogs to assess how much to sell a record for she also takes issue with, which I find absurd, how else am I supposed to price something when it’s rare? It’s how a person figures out the market price of a given record, especially when it’s so rare that there aren’t any other prices available. I discounted the record, keeping in mind the record’s condition for the auction that she’s whining about.
Now I’m going to get some annoying dispute. I wish people would just follow the advice I put on every single auction: message me before you bid, because one person’s expectations are going to differ from another’s and one person’s shipping address may be more expensive than another’s.
If I have to give a refund, I’m going to mail her a bag of my shit. (I won’t do that, but it’ll be tempting.)
