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 :rolleyes:). 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!? :sad:

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!:p

Jerricho 5th Feb 2006 15:49

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

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

:p Good luck mate!

Just dont tell Mrs J!:p

Jerricho 5th Feb 2006 15:56

Oh she knows...........she's the one who happened to see the confirmation emails first.

Stupid eBay.

It could have been worse mate, you could have played online poker, like I did last night. Doh !:eek:

Jerricho 5th Feb 2006 16:07

Good point mate.

Although I become the best poker player in the world when I've had a couple of drinks as well. And singer, and dancer and ladies man.............

stue 5th Feb 2006 16:09

Yeah, but singer, dancer and ladies man dont cast you !! (well perhaps ladies man will:p )

Actually, it can make you money.......when people pay you to stop.

CSI-Bratislava? On a Saturday? I don't think so!

Jerricho 5th Feb 2006 17:25

We're in Canada remember...........

Gingerbread Man 5th Feb 2006 18:18

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 prooning when drunk ............... you will regret it in the morning.

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

Come on Jerr, stand up and be counted, tell us what you bought!!;)

Or I'll just make something up....

colmac747 5th Feb 2006 20:16

Hmm! I know what he bought - t'was me who was selling...

:suspect:

:ouch:

tart1 5th Feb 2006 20:23

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. := :=

tart1 5th Feb 2006 20:29

Oh yeah, HH I forgot about that!! :O

Jerricho 6th Feb 2006 05:10

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)
