Ebay User Single-Handedly Crushes My Heart


As most of you know, I have become somewhat of an Ebay addict, and now, I have found the mother of all lots. A 176 Derek Jeter card lot. No duplicates. And at the time when I finally have a little cash to dedicate to my beloved collection. I enter my maximum bid of $80.00 and watch as the final 2 minutes fade away. My heart and hopes begin to rise as I see the final seconds dwindling down. I turn to Mario. “This is gonna help my collection A LOT.” I refresh the page one more time and my mouth falls wide open as I realize that there is only 1 second left on the bid and some bastard has outbid me by one lousy dollar. Before I even have time to react, the bid is over and I have lost out on 176 new Derek Jeter cards. Needless to say, I am desperately depressed by this loss. Who knew? One would think I lost a family member by how pathetic I look at the moment. Now, whether this guy used a sniping program to steal my Jeters away from me, or if he was just sitting in front of his computer preying on the poor innocent female collector, I will have my vengeance. >:'(
Damn you to Hell, Jeter00. Watch your back, holmes. Unless, of course, you bought those cards for me. 😉
One can hope… can’t they?

These cards, along with about 168 other cards could have been mine. 😥

    I know your pain all too well. That has happened to me many times bidding on eBay. Many things I have truly wanted were outpriced in the final seconds with no time for a re-bid. People really suck sometimes.

  2. Stop obsessing. A few months ago you wouldn’t let me bid on a Canseco lot with over 400 cards cause you deemed it “junk”.

    There will be many more Jeter lots to bid on.

    Wah Wah Wah.

    Try being outbid by 1 penny on a 1 / 1 autograph / jersey card of your favorite player. I bid w/ 5 seconds left and that guy did it with 2 seconds left. That is tough to take. But like a MAN and not a WOMAN I bucked up and outbid that bastard on everything we have bid on.

  5. Whatever, Joe. You smell funny! >:'(

    I have been using gavelsnipe,com lately. It is free and be sure to set the snipe time for 5 – 7 seconds. I did not know to set it and the default is 20 seconds so I was outbid. It works well and is easy to use. Happy Jeter hunting.
