Me on eBay: I'm selling my mixer
Dude: I'll buy it here's $200
Me: awesome I've just sent it off, here's the tracking number.

(delivery day passes)
(another week passes)

Dude: Hey send me the tracking number
Me: I did send you the tracking number. And UPS says they delivered it. And they say whoever signed for it, signed with your name.
Dude: I want full refund NOW!

(Dude initiates eBay complaint resolution procedure)
($200 leaves my account)

eBay: What happened?
Me: (Tells the full story)
eBay: (Almost immediately) What?! Fuck that guy! Resolved in your favor! ($200 restored)
Me: Yeah! Fuck that guy! I feel good now.

$200 for a mixer? You must have some fancy kitchen appliances!

Dude checked off "didn't send tracking number" and "could not communicate with" on the complaint resolution form -- when his question and my clear-as-balls answer, containing the tracking number, was right in the item's eBay entry.

Some people may not be familiar with how scams operate, and why you can't just try stuff at random and have it work out for you.

I thought it was a KitchenAid Mixer.

The price seemed about right. And I'm local.

OK, it's time right NOW if you're on the east coast of the US...

Go find Venus !

Quote:
Go out around 4 p.m. local time on Monday, and position yourself
so that the sun is behind a chimney or rooftop to your right.
Blocking the sun is always essential if you're looking anywhere close to the sun.
WARNING: Never look directly at the sun with your unaided eye
or through binoculars or telescopes without special light filters. Severe eye damage can result.


Then face due south, and look two-thirds of the way up the sky towards overhead.
If the sky is clear, you should be able to clearly see the crescent moon.
Look just above the moon, and you should be able to see Venus as a tiny brilliant pinpoint of light.

If you have difficulty, try using binoculars to focus on the moon.
Before using binoculars, make doubly sure that the sun is still
safely behind the chimney or rooftop.
Always take extreme care when using binoculars in a daytime sky
and never point them at the sun without using a solar filter.

Venus is not the only object currently shining bright in the evening and nighttime sky.
Tonight, Venus will appear near the moon and Jupiter for the second night
in a row in an event that astronomers call a conjunction.

At sunset tonight, Venus will appear in the west just to the right
of the crescent moon with Jupiter shining below.
In the eastern night sky, Mars is also currently visible at night
and is unmistakeable due to its reddish hue.

I just confused the heck out of some sales guy at Directv. I got a call just now from Directv, and the guy was spieling about wanting to give me a great deal on HBO/Cinemax. Now, today, we just learned that the new job is a go, and I have been wanting to get HBO to see the new GOT series, so his timing was impeccable. As soon as he stopped talking I said "Sign me up!" He stopped for a couple of seconds, stuttered and then continued. When he stopped I told him "I don't think you expected me to say that, did you." "No, Ma'am, I did not."
It made me laugh.
