In the past few months I've had people offer me ridiculously low and insulting Buy It Now prices for designer stuff I've listed on eBay. I've had winning bidders contact me immediately after an auction ends asking me to cancel the transaction as they can't pay for the item. As a seller who cannot leave negative feedback to a buyer, what else can I do? And then there's those buyers who win an auction and just never pay and never respond to your messages. And then there are those sellers who you pay for an item, and then they turn around and tell you they want to keep the item and that they will refund you.
Maybe it's the IT nerd in me but I only want to shop when computers are involved. The computer shows me there is stock in my size, I put it in my virtual shopping trolley, I pay for it, and it magically appears in my hands a few days later. I am much happier in these circumstances. And as a seller, I think I might try my luck at markets instead of eBay. Yeah I know there are people involved there but only for the day. When you go home you never have to see them again.
Also, here is a turkey. He's cold.
Also, this is a conversation I had with my sister yesterday. I had to share...

me: where can we get cake?
sister: a cafe?
me: oh there's a bakery on harris st
