Shame on Me
inadvertently sniped an auction.
(ok, I knew what I was doing, but I hadn't planned on it...it was just how it worked out...)
I'd had this film can on my watch list. I figured it'd be handy to keep the few photographs that are currently kicking around loose or stuffed in some bubble mailer.
Anyway, so I go to my watch page and see that there's one minute left in the auction.
I have no idea what came over me but it was quite a rush.
The auction page comes up and now I have 53 seconds. *whirrrrrr!* Scroll down to the bottom! How much to bid? Guh! just put something in the box! Submit! Argh! password! I thought I'd stored that! *types frantically*
::ENTER:: Wait for page to load with those lovely words..
"Congratulations! You are the high bidder!"
Go back to auction page...
I DID IT! Yay, me.
*Wham* The guilt hits.....
I'll get over it.

Thanks the sort of thing I'd do...*evilgrin*
Back in the days when I was eBaying like crazee..
I don't do that anymore, I've learnt my lesson...[darn poor!]
Yeah, okay, no sense feeling guilty! I guess it's possible this is how I was sniped as well (without forethought or malice, that is), so I should get over it, too. Hmmm.
utterly understandable. and forgivable. you were carried away by the excitement.
Yeah, and any Reloaded memorabilia is a prize really.
Plus it was relatively cheap. A round metal box at pier 1 would probably cost the same (11 bucks).
You are so sweet. It didn't take but a minute for you to feel guilty. I'm not one to dwell on guilt, but it does show you have a big heart. I like that. Just figures, a Keanu fan with compassion for her fellow ebayers.
It's just that I've been sniped before and it sucks so bad.
This is the second or third one of these that has been up on eBay, so I would guess that there might be a few more in the future.
Krix, Guilt is like a bag of bricks....
you know how the rest goes.
Oh man....the first time thru, I didn't read that as "bricks".
;) Been there...done that...just be sure you SHARE!
So Krix....what did this little gem turn out to be? ~panting in anticipation~
