If one gets into a bidding war over FNL material (in the last minute of the ebay auction) and loses, should the person be happy the show is popular or should the person be furious at losing to someone who is probably an Ebay junkie who will resell?

(the item in question was a crew jacket identical to the one in the icon to go with my BtvS jacket)
So here is the polite reply from the seller of the item:

You are an incredible idiot. Your payment cleared on Dec. 17. Your item shipped out on Dec. 18. What more do you want? And, by the way, this is the first email I've received from you about this. Learn some patience. Your item was sent out within 24 hours of your payment clearing. That is incredibly fast.

I suppose we should all just be thankful he speaks in English and not netspeak. But [profile] malkin_dad doesn't ever let dead things lie. He puts on his CoachTaylorisPissed!Face and writes back:

So at the beginning of the month I asked very nicely for Santa!Dad to get me a FNL pilot script  for my birthday/christmas/hunnakah/removalofteeth/specscriptforwritingclassthiscomingsemester present.

He complied, and we won. He sent out 3 emails while PayPal took it's SWEETASS time to move from Canadian to US funds. Not hard, I promise.

It went through on the 17th/18th around midnight and still nothing from the seller. I'm not so worried or pissed because it's the holidays and this guy has a pretty good review. EXCEPT! GASP! When dealing international. So we wait, and wait, and today dad finds ANOTHER FNL PILOT SCRIPT for sale by the same guy. So he writes his ANGRY EBAY LETTER which ends in: Feel free to forward this to the seller.  He's totally ruined my  daughter's birthday and Christmas and, if I had free reign, he'd be rotting in prison - or worse.

And we wonder where my crazy vigilante rage comes from.

See, my daddy is much more excellent than Hallmark!Santa :D
