    @Pospaintballer thread earlier got me thinking about collecting Oakley as a hobby. I'd noticed that my emotions roller-coasted on a daily basis. Why?

    Search ebay and forum with nothing to buy - boredom
    Something nice pops up - excitement
    PM seller - optimistic
    no deal - disappointment -> start from beginning
    DEAL! - happiness
    Paypal payment - trepidation
    moments after PP - guilty
    Seller ships out - anxiety
    track EMS/USPS/Fedex/DHL - agony
    package arrived - relieved
    opening package - happiness
    seeing it for the first time - extreme happiness
    wearing it for the first time -smugness
    one day later - EMPTY
    start next hunt

    just ranting really ... and raking up posts .... ;)

    I never really thought about that emotional roller coaster, but I think you got it spot on. I'm sure many of us ride this same coaster.

    I think the agony of tracking packages has to be the worst.

    when you first see your eBay purchase and it is not as described -- disappointment :(

    I think most of us are in the same boat.

    Literally all but one of my Oakley purchases were unexpected so the guilt part hits pretty hard.

    Well, what OP describes goes for all internet purchases, the symptoms are the same, and the diagnosis is : Shopaholic,
