That's $38 I'll Never See Again

My friend Nikki says that some days you're the pigeon and some days you're the statue. And some days you're the statue on eBay. In May, I bid on and won a birthday present for Kincade. (I can't say what it is because I'm still planning on buying it for him.) I waited for the package to come in the mail. And waited. And waited. It never came. The seller e-mailed me a few excuses over the weeks and then finally stopped responding to me at all. I got fed up and opened a dispute with PayPal. Today, I found out that although PayPal decided in my favor, they were "unable to recover any funds from the seller's account."

If you think what eBay member Kimberly Boone did is lame, go ahead and let her know at

OH MY GOSH. What a freaking piece! Lame. Also, I love your new background and header. Really cute. And thanks for the link to my blog. I can feel the $$ just waiting to come :) haha.

I think that it is lame. That kinda happened to me... I won the bid, then the seller didn't have the item but promised to send it. Luckily I had never paid for it. Two months later I left negative feedback. She had the gall to question me on that!! GAK
