How did he expect you to know he was a retired postal inspector?

When I get a super-great deal, I pay fast and keep my mouth shut other than to say 'thank you'.

AND this is so true of FEE bay. They are the lowest of the low Philipine companies that ever existed. They are scum. PERIOD. I would shoot the guy an e mail telling him to F off and that he is a loser PERIOD, but he is retired from the postal service, so that speaks for itself.

Default A friendly reminder about shipping protection backfired

I had a very similar experience last year.

A few years ago I started sending a note to each eBay seller I bought from, kindly asking each to harden and weatherproof the packaging so it survives all the way to my house - this after receiving numerous crumbled or wet items over the years. Initially these comments were well received and I do feel it made a difference. In the time period I was doing this I had no further damage to speak of.

Then I finally encountered someone who was incredulous and deeply offended to receive such a request. He immediately cancelled my order and basically said to go ahead and report him to eBay but he wouldn’t send the items. Of course I really wanted these items and pleaded my case but he wouldn’t budge. That was it. I never got them and regrettably haven’t even seen them for sale again on eBay since.

I thought about it and decided that the risk of not receiving what I purchased outweighed the risk that the item would arrive damaged. The reality is that most items I buy at this point are difficult to find or offered infrequently so I don’t want to take that chance again.

I stopped sending my little shipping instruction note. So far everything has arrived undamaged and I’d like to think this is due to eBay sellers higher standards for shipping these days but just don’t know.

Ben, not to take away from your moment of wit, but I learned this behavior during the famous BL 460 event of 2002. At least one current board member learned the hard way.

Just a thought, but sometimes people may have had to deal with picky buyers about shipping and if someone mentions it up front, it might be a red flag to that seller that they may be getting a hard to deal with buyer.

I have done the same thing myself though after getting packages that were beat up. Some people just don't get it I guess.

I had one "picky" buyer this season, two months ago someone bought a photo off of me. He asked me to write "hand-deliver only" all over it because items haven't been arriving for him, and he wasn't sure if it was the mailman or someone stealing his packages. So I did, it showed as delivered a few days later, and I didn't hear from him, thinking all was good.

Last week, over 6 weeks after it was delivered, he opened a case against me because he never received it. Still hasn't communicated directly with me. Kinda frustrating.
