Warning Ebay Rant

Why would a buyer do a buy it now, pay and then within a few minutes email to ask me to  cancel and not send it?  This buyer tells me its not the right items.  Ummm  you just bought 5 adorable pastel colored Build a Bears for less then $15!!  Why buy it??  So Ok I don't want this person to return it and then make ME pay for the return shipping just because the buyer can too easily check the not as described button.  So I returned the money and then requested for the buyer to mutually end the CONTRACT so I can get my ebay fees back..  And guess what she hasn't.  Why would a buyer do that?  AND oh why can't I leave proper feedback?  And why is it possible for the buyer who cost me money and time (I can't relist it while waiting for this  buyer to do the right thing)  to leave me feedback and quite possible a negative?  Why oh why is that possible?

Last week I sold a game with working batteries..  They received the game and played for a while and the batteries stop working.  This buyer email and demanded a refund because the batteries didn't work.  Fine I don't want a negative over something so simple so she got a partial refund because of batteries.  Ok no more.  I will not be selling anything with batteries again.  I thought I was being nice but I'm not suppling batteries for the life of the game.  So my new phrase in my ads Batteries Not Included.   My fault for even mentioning working batteries. 

Plus ebay is at it again..  they are raising the price on the final fees to 10% across the board..  That includes the shipping!!  That is a lot of money.  And don't forget Paypal has their fees too!  They think giving us 50 fee listings a month is a gift which we have had for a year already but now that includes 30 day buy it nows.  Oh boy..  did you see me running through the streets celebrating.. NOT!  

Ebay you want to make me happy as a seller.  First I want to be able to leave proper feedback for buyers.  If buyers aren't sneaky snakes in the grass they have nothing to worry about with negatives.  But sellers have to give away their items because a buyer can get whatever they want for free plus cost the seller shipping and fees.  And then worry about getting a negative. The other thing that would be make me happy....  All listings should be free.

Sorry about the rant but some times frustration needs to be let out!

Nothing Matters More Then Being a Mom.. Even If Your a Dog

This is from an email I received...  I enjoyed it so much I had to share!!

This is beyond a "nice story"--it's fantastic!!!

During an early morning response to a house fire, firefighters were amazed...
A Mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire surrounding the burning house...
The Mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house, putting her 10 day old puppies in the
Safest place she could find - a Fire Truck!...

As an onlooker photographed it with his cell phone after she already had a few in one of the truck's
equipment compartments. She didn't stop racing back into the smoke and fire until all of her puppies
were safely away from the fire.
The firemen on scene could not believe their eyes. Most people have never seen a dog this smart or this
brave! Bringing each one out, six trips into the fire and no one could stop her.
All the firemen could do was to try to keep a little water spray on her to keep from singing as she kept
making trips running through the open door. You can see some of the singed hair on her back end,
forehead and lower legs. After rescuing all of her pups from the blaze, Amanda sat down next to them
to nurse, protecting them with her body. Onlookers called an emergency veterinary service, and she and
her pups were rushed to the hospital. Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire
family are alive and well! Thanks to the bravery of Amanda! What a heroic mother! How Great!!

Google is Getting Rid of Reader

Yesterday I received an email telling me that in July 2013, Google will retired READER!!!!  What?  WHY?  How?  I use reader several times a day.  I love it.  I use it for blogs and for craigslist.  It works great!  I'm shocked that a program that works so great will be retired.  I love this one landing spot for all of my blogs and saved searches on craigslist.  Now I need to find something else that works this well.  I've been snooping around and feedly is the place most seem to be going to. Why is google retiring something so useful?  Google please reconsider?  I have not retried feedly, I'd rather leave everything as it is...  Do you use Google Reader?  Will you miss it?
