Default Dont you hate

buying something online and having to wait for it to show up because you really dont know if you wasted your money or not? The last 24 hours is the worst. I hate the internet.

my rant for today.

I bought the 94 off of Craigslist with 4 pictures, but I saw it in person and drove it before any money was laid out

I bought my 94 over the phone with no pictures.

Slightly different circumstances though.

I know what you mean though. So much so that I never buy used items like that anymore because I hate worrying about it. I'm worried my swoopies will get damaged. I can't wait until Thursday and I hope they arrive safely!!

Well, I bought two sets of taillights for my old CRX for $40 shipped off of ebay ($20+$20) with no pictures.. I was weary (since $40 was a ton of money to me at the time) but the taillights came in absolutely perfect condition

BTW, sold one set for $80 and the other for $60 i think. hehehe.

A guy down the road made a good living selling laptops on eBay he didn't have. Until he got busted.

Does that make you feel any better? :P !
