As I chomp on my cheesesteak and check my emails during my lunchtime break, I thought this might be a fun topic...
Have you ever contacted an Ebay seller (before their auction ended) that either completely misrepresented what they were selling, or someone that just didn't know enough about what they are selling to depict it properly, as in the case of our Charlie the Tuna watch in the post below (price, age, rarity, etc...)? If so, care to share the occasion with us?
I'll go first. I used to feel obligated to contact a seller, until I started getting arrogant notes back that either the seller didn't care if their auction was wrong, or they would argue with me that they were right. Ultimately I decided to just worry about myself and if I am not planning on bidding, I'll mind my own business.
I once had a long argument with someone regarding the age of a vintage Timex Mickey Mouse watch. They swore up and down it was from 1958, but the round case and #24 movement would only have been available after 1963. The seller had a page out of a Character Watch book that he got his info from, but I think the book was wrong. We all know the shape case and #22 movements that were used for those watches in the 1950s. Anyway, we argued back and forth for a month before I gave up.
I am sure most of us are at a point in our lives where we can let things like this go, but sometimes you feel like you just have to say something.. or is it just me!?
