Wow. Some people are truly spiteful. I sold two of my knitting books on eBay, and was the buyer not happy on an epic level. Shite.
I shipped the books at the same time as two other packages (can’t remember if they were swap or books) when the PO was swamped, so they got sent as media mail instead of priority. That’s not my fault. I did manage to get DC#’s on everything, which was nearly impossible. I’ve offered to refund the difference. Please excuse me for trusting the PO and not harassing them.
The buyer just left some really nasty comments as feedback, without waiting for an explanation. Also, s/he left comments about there being “stickers and writing” in the books. They’re USED books! I lent them to students on many occassions. I don’t recall anything horrendous in them. Heck, I don’t recall anything other than the “Property of” stickers in the front (which I didn’t remove, cuz that would have ruined the insides). But, I know that the books were in better condition than any USED coursebook I’ve bought at the school bookstore.
So, now my 100% positive feedback is ruined, because someone felt bitchy. Nice.

Did you ship from the PO in the EMU? I had a swap package almost get shipped to Wisconsinn instead of Florida because the woman typed in the zip code wrong. They frustrate me a lot there, but since I work in the building, it doesn’t make sense to take my packages elsewhere.
Also, the buyer is being totally craptacular. I’m sorry that happened.
oh that’s quite mean. i’m so sorry that happened. i had problems once because the mailperson couldn’t believe that the town and city and zip were correct and kept wanting me to ship it somewhere else because the town name looked like a city on the other side of the country.
wish i had some spare $ because your sci fi collection made me drool, but i get all my books from the library these days. i spend too much on yarn. ;)
Wow that pin is impressive! I’ve only ever sewed my finger (Twice)on the sewing machine, fortunately both times I missed the bone, although it did take several minutes to extracate my finger from the machine! No permanent damage done however and 20+ years later I’m still sewing.
