what can I possibly do to appease someone who obviously has no clue? My winning bidder for awol hubby3 sent me a really harsh feedback! He never even emailed me to say he wasn't happy. I guess he doesn't get out much because he has no clue what the box was worth. Probably a strict indoorsman. I was floored when I saw my BIG RED DOT... God, what's the matter here? Did he not read anything in the auction? OUTDOOR sporting gear. Not parcheesi or checkers. I've just got to defend myself cuz I don't want you all to think that I ripped this guy! First of all, a mystery auction has no guarantees or specified value. Second of all, his gear was worth quite a bit of $$. Now I am gonna give up the secret... His box had some really great rock-climbing gear, including the harness, top of the line climbing shoes and all the expensive little clippies and stuff. It Also had a very nice expensive pair of Bausch& Lomb binoculars. Then there were little things like a warm beanie, some camping stuff, an all weather water resist floppy hat from REI. You know, it would have cost quite a bit to buy again if I had to. Shoot, I've bought lots of mystery boxes and never had one that had anything near what mine did. This guy just doesn't know what these things are. So he went from being Mr. nice guy bidder to a real nightmare. what the hell is that... Gawd! So why do I feel so bad? I just wanna go crawl under a rock.
