NOT so happy...

OK, so yeah, this is called Jeannie's Happy World. Because I am Jeannie and I'm a pretty happy person. Makes sense, right? Well I'm not happy right now. I'm pretty ticked off in fact! Stoopid people.....they really don't need to be jerking this New York broad's chain, ya know?!?

I've been buying (ALOT!) of stamp sets on eBay. I love eBay! It's not a perfect place, and yes it has it's own issues, but it's cool and for the most part it rocks!! And most of the people, buyers and sellers, are pretty awesome people. Most. Not all.

NOT "NAXTELL"!!!!

That's right you hag, I'm callin' ya out on the internet!! I should have given you the negative feedback you deserved, but I was NICE and gave you a positive. Even though it took you forever to ship out my set. Even though it barely had any wrapping and mostly tape. Even though you charged me $5.70 in shipping and it only COST YOU $3.89!!!! And for my niceness you sent me TWO nasty emails.

Email #1: Your feedback was way out of line. I clearly posted shipping charges on my auction. If you were not pleased to pay that, no one forced you to submit a bid. I am sorry you are a negitive person. I wish i hadn't sold you any sets
(note: no corrections made - this is as it was typed!)

Email #2: Add 3.89 + .75 for packaging tape/paper plus 1.70 for postal insurance and what do you get You bonehead. .11 under what i posted for the cost to ship to you. Just consider the .11 my gas fee to go 20 Min each way to the post office If i see you bid on another of my sets i will cancel on you!!
(note: again, no changes made!)

Guess what? I ain't playin' nice anymore! YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED OUT! And reported to eBay twice - once for overcharging on shipping which is a big no-no, and once for email harassment. And seriously, who does she think she's kidding?? I've been an Ebay seller/buyer for nearly five years. I'm good at and I know the ins and outs. When you mail something, the post office puts the postage YOU PAY on a sticker and attaches it to the package. Duh!! So the $3.89 sticker was all she paid. Period! Bonehead?? Try lookin' in the mirror Babe because that would be YOU!!!
Angry

What a bitch!

{Diamond} said...

That's right, girl! Tell 'em not to mess with us New York broads! :-D

Denise @ Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys said...

So sorry this happened. Some people just suck.

Our Crazy Life said...

Sorry this happened! I bought something off ebay once and was charged 24.99 for "postage and handling", the postage was 1.85 so I guess it got "handled" a lot before she shipped it. Oh well, not everyone knows how to play nicely!!

Jenn@mylifewiththecrazies said...

You go girl!!!

Jennifer said...

Let it all out girl. I'd seriously have to go find that lady and kick her a$$! :)

Mimi said...

Hmm, messing with a New York military chick who has recently given up smoking...seems like a poor choice to me!

April said...

That is ridiculous, Jeannie! Oh, the very nerve of some people! You did the right thing by reporting her!

Punkn said...

I've never run into a problem like this, but then I'm an occasional ebay user, rather than a power user. Next time you place a bid you might want to leave a comment that you are in the middle of getting off cigs, so they better play nice ;)

babyrocasmama said...

What a stupid HO! That's right I called her a big ole HO!

WOW! I guess customer service and class are two things NOT in her vocabulary! I hope she gets suspended from ebay for this!

You go Jeannie!

Living on the Spit said...

Sorry that had to happen to you. It is people like that, that make people like me not want to buy anything off of Ebay and that hurts all the sellor's.

She sucks. You did the right thing.

Amy B said...

Good for you for calling her out on her rude behavior ..I have a feeling you are NOT the first person she did this too but maybe with you reporting her ..you will be the last..
Way to go on the stop smoking..

Queenie Jeannie said...

You guys are so great!! Thank you for the support. It's nice to just have someplace to just let it all hang out, you know? And even better when someone reads and commiserates, lol!

Time for my German bon bons! =)

Amy said...

How RUDE! Sic 'em! :D

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

Aaaahhh... don't you feel better now? I love it when others get as riled up as I do about things.

Sometimes... it just isn't enough to grin and bear it... sometimes... ya gotta fight back!

Megan R. said...

You and I are two peas in a pod, SITSta! We took Chunky Monkey to the ER this weekend (phone nurses advice) and the dr. we got was ATROCIOUS. I was so angry! I wrote a comment on the comment form on the Children's website, and within 4 hours, the VP of medical affairs and Chief Medical Officer called me to discuss it. He thanked me for taking the time to let them know, so they could have the chance to improve it, and waived our ENTIRE visit, saying they were sorry to have wasted our time. GOOD FOR YOU!

Ally said...

Eh, some people can just be so selfish!

I hope you get back to your normal happy self!! =)

jennifersusan said...

that seriously sucks! i'm glad you got something back from ebay! she was so rude to you!

Vickie said...

Oh.My.Gosh!! Bitch indeed!

Put her in her place.

Hope they kick her off of eBay!

I am sick of bullies.

janis said...

so sorry about that... there really are some people who are rude & selfish. Good for you that you reported that seller to eBay :)

Tanielle said...

I am soo sorry! I don't understand how people can be like that!

Christina said...

I agree its those kinds of situations on ebay that put people off! But all and all ebay rocks!

TattooedMinivanMom said...

What a bee-otch.

I believe that what comes around, goes around. She'll get hers.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Ha! What a hag - perfect term there. Please don't feed me grits. :)

Donnetta said...

Not too long ago I had buyer on ebay who was PSYCHO! I shipped the jeans she bought and the post office delivered and I had a delivery confirmation FROM the post office! I can't tell you how many emails I got from her saying she never got them, don't I know people STEAL in her neighborhood (no, dumbass, I DO NOT know that!), why didn't I offer insurance (why didn't she ASK for it if she knows people STEAL in her neighborhood) and on and on. Then she had the audacity to say I was deceitful and never shipped it. I copied her and SHOWED her the delivery confirmation from them post office.

I finally just blocked her from my ebay and from sending me emails. I thought she was going to drive me CRAZY!

Xazmin said...

Wow. I can't believe how rude this person was! I won't ever buy from this person - promise!

Reeni♥ said...

That's real good for her business, huh? %$%$&*#@#$%&&& %$##$%&*#$!!! There! I told her off, too!

LadyStyx said...

That wasnt right. If she was going to charge for packaging and handling, it should have been listed on her Auction page. Im an occassional EBayer and even I know that.

Heatherlyn said...

um, so, you can charge what you want for shipping if you say up front what the charge is? But if you don't say up front then you can only charge the actual cost of the shipping? Is that right?

I'm surpised that she would be so rude. Maybe she doesn't want any return business.

Melodie said...

OMG! I had a similar situation with someone I bought a doll from on eBay. I got so many nasty emails from her about it, and I, too, had left her the positive feedback she asked for so that I could get mine from her. SHe refused to give me my positive feedback, and kept on sending me nasty emails. It was horrible!

ChicagoLady said...

I've never bought or sold anything on Ebay, but even I know better than to charge extra for shipping. I'm glad you reported her, and hope you feel better now that you ranted about it.
