    People are strange
    When they're on Ebay
    Watching your items
    And don't fking buy

    Make you waste money
    Re-listing items
    Then they'll watch again
    Cos they're strange

    When they're stra-ange
    Ebay won't tell you their name
    When they're strange
    Ebay won't tell you their name

    People are strange
    When they're on Ebay
    Watch but no buying
    Even your Buy It Nows

    What is the point
    Of continually watching
    It p155es me off
    You idiots. Get a life

    When they're stra-ange
    Ebay won't tell you their name
    When they're strange
    Ebay won't tell you their name.

    When they're . . . .
    Straaaaange.

    Haha. Nice.

    I don't often vent. But hey. :smile:

    Ebay used to be for bargains mate. And some still crop up.
    But, ya know, stuff still sells for what they're worth.
    Now someone buy my fking carbon forks. Lool.

    People are strange
    I've said in my listing
    Make me an offer
    You're creeping me out

    Lool.
    Borne from frustration at people who clearly see the words "make me an offer" and think "hmmm no I'd rather watch and do nothing at all. That'll help all concerned".
    Sigh.

    I sometimes watch just to see what my stuff is worth...lol

    But I buy if I think its a deal compared to what I paid in the hopes of hedging my purchase prices.

    How about when you start an auction at $50 and have a buy it now option for $60 and the person bids on it even though the price will almost certainly rise above $70....good for me bad for him, common sense deficit, I think yes.

    I watch items that I'm selling/planning to sell to see what they sell for so I can gauge interest/potential selling price for mine. I also only list items on free listing weekends, which is virtually every two weeks at the moment.

    The market is strange right now. I had a pair of Smog Tortoise Frogskins that I had been re-listing for months on end with no luck, and then about 3 weeks ago had a bidding war on it and it went way above what I was asking for it less than a month ago. It's just a waiting game really, someone will buy at some point. The most frustrating thing is having 'offers' and then people really low-balling you. It's ridiculous behaviour. The same as the constant stream of emails after an auction closes without selling from people low balling you because it didn't sell, like they're doing you a favour! Honestly, I don't undertsand how people think it's OK to behave like that because you're a private seller, but they'd never dream of going in to a shop and saying "I see you're about to close and haven't sold this top, I'll give you half price for it now".

    I do know, because one of the perennial watchers I have emailed me to tell me, that some watchers keep watching in the hopes that one day the price will be cut/it will have a low starting price and then they'll bid. Some watchers are waiting for you to break. Fcuk 'em I say, I'll never crack!

    Love your last line in this jk, made me chuckle, don't give into the tight arses I say, well that is until it's me doing the watching & bidding:wink:

    I'm the same. I've watched items show up 2-3 times before they get any bids on them. When they do cell they always seam get get more than one bid. Like Hebs says "People are strange"
