Chuckle For the Day!

Mon Apr 05, 2004 7:38 pm

I saw this over on the YTMag Farmall Forum and went to see for meself. Got me a chuckle out of it although I really feel for the guy with the high bid :roll: :cry:

Seems this guy is trying to make pure profit off of this one :!: :lol:


Check out the bid history - seems the one bidder kept bidding against his/herself :shock: :?

I saw that too. Wonder what's going to happen when he orders something from them and they send him a free catalog. :oops: I think what you are actually seeing in the history, is where someone else has bid, but his reserve was above there bid, and it doesn't show the other bidder, just who is the top bid at that point.

Wonder how many more time they will bid in the next 3 hrs? :roll: :roll: :roll:

I felt really sorry for the guy who bid, so I sent him a note with the url for OEM and suggested he might want to retract his bid.

He sent me a note back saying he can't retract but sure would like too :cry:

eBay is nice, but man it hurts when I see people getting ripped off. Sure makes one think about the old saying Caveat Emptor

Ebay won't let you retract your bid if there is less than 24 hours left in the auction.

If I was the seller I would be ashamed to take the money from feeling I was taking advantage of someones ignorance.

:?: I am looking at the same catalog in my hands now. What does it mean on front cover that says "Parts List and Interchange Guide :?: . I dont see any parts interchange info inside.

I am not sure, I even looked in the 2003 catalog - no cross referenced part numbers there either :?

You know, I almost sent the seller a note telling him the very same thought, but then another thought hit me - he probably wouldn't understand the concept :roll: :wink:
