Don't drink and eBay

To start this thread it must be said that drinking to excess can be bad for your health...........and your wallet

I got a bit carried away with my duty free whisky last night. Sitting on the couch in front of the fire with my laptop (Mrs J had fallen asleep watching CSI-Bratislava or something like that), happily exploring the treasure trove that is eBay. Not a care in the world it seems.

Wake up this morning, a little fuzzy in the head and check my email..........oh dear. 2 of the auctions I am now bidding on are crap, and if I don't get outbid on them I'll be pissed off (do I really need that for my car? I don't think so, but it must have been a good idea at the time ). The third, well I know I'm gonna win it cause nobody else would be that fricken stupid to bid for it in the first place and there's no way I'll be able to resell it.

Maybe I should fit my computer with a breathaliser!?

Drinking is dangerous and ebay is dangerous. You put them together??! BIG mistake! Good Luck!

what have you got, a set of furry dice? a spoon rest? some second hand wiper blades??

Oh Dear!

Ain't no way on this planet I am admitting to what I'm bidding on.

Let's just say my little rice rocket doesn't need it.

You're naively assuming that I don't read the Canadian TV listings for my general amusement. And you'd be quite right .

I suppose it is the same as PPRuNeing when drunk ............... you will regret it in the morning.

Still, at least PPRuNeing is cheap (or free if you don't bother with a personal title!)

I expect it was one of those self-help guides, you know the ones:

Make £2000 per week without doing anything!

You'd have to be drunk to believe that is possible.

Let's just say, if you see a WRX rice rocket around Winnipeg with a funny looking front grill...........it's me.

(yeah, there should have been an e at the end of grille. It's cause I'm thick, ok)
