Some people are just nasty


And for no reason at all....

Get this eBay customer I have at the moment. He's a new member (I wont show his user name), and he's really getting on my tits, even though I am being very nice to him:


Orginal Auto-Generated Message, sent when I had been waiting two weeks for payment:

An Unpaid Item dispute has been opened for the following item: URBAN WAR - PUBLICATIONS - ISSUE "3" (#8700241372)
Reason given for Unpaid Item: The buyer has not paid for the item.
Buyer actions reported by seller: Other reason.


*Note: "Other Reason", I can put "No Contact" "Refuses To Pay" and any number of other reasons, but as at one point I was contacted to say payment had been sent, I was nice.

Customer:

I have already paid for this item using check or money order. Payment details are as follows:
Check number: **********
Amount: £6.00
Payee: charlotte oaks
Payment date: 07-Oct-2005
I don't know if this check has been cashed.
Additional comments: i have sent this payment last wednesday ,i emailed yourself ,to let you know why it hadn't been sent
,as my wife forgot to send it to you ,as this is nowa week .im wondering myself where it has got to


Customer:

i have sent payment to you ,i wish to know where my magazine is

Me:

Hello
I did get your email saying you had sent it, but as of yet I have not had your payment. Feel
free check with your bank, and see that we have not cashed your cheque. You may wish to cancel it as
it has failed to arrive.
I do still have your magazine on hold for you, however, I will have to
re-list it if we cannot arrange a payment by the end of the weekend. If you wish to continue with the
sale please let me know and I will hold it for you for a few more days.


Customer:

this is the third time i have stated i have paid for the item, i am going to check with the post
office first thing tomorrow to see if the payment has been cashed, and find out exactly where and
when, and i will be letting you know,


Me:

Hello.
I think that would be advisable. It is not impossible that your payment has become lost in
the post or stolen. Please let me know the outcome, and, again, if you still wish to continue the
sale.


Now, is it just me, angered by the fact this guy is making out that I am ripping him off, or is the tone of his message really arsey?!! Why would I rip some one off for £6.00???

I tell you, I'll be waiting to see if this cheque cleared (if it ever shows up) before I send out his magazine! This guy seems to me like he's trying to be a con man, only without the itelligence to do i right!

Now, eBay is allowing me to give this guy a "Non-Payer" strike, and as of yet, I have not done this. If he continues to be an arse, I will, and I'll leave Neg feedback too. I know that means he'll leave it for me too, but I'll risk it. All my other feedback is glowing, and people who click on it will see that he's an arse!

Give him a "Non-Payer" and if he really doesn't pay, a negative feedback. Even if it's sure, he'll do the same with your for no reason.

Guess you'll have to have at least one negative feedback or you're not really auctioning at eBay. ;-)

This is very true, lol. As it happens, as soon as this guy saw the non-payer strike, he's been trying to pay! I'll gladly let him. After all, a sale is a sale. AND I get to walk away knowing that I was in the right the whole time. I'll be sending it with secure post though!

Sounds like the lad's a bit of a wanker. Why would anyone try to rip anyone else off for a paltry 6 quid? Funny also how he's already paid and getting irate but when you call his bluff with a non pay he rolls right over eh?

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
