Is it them or me?

I’m so easily annoyed right now. I think I’m having my period.

I received the boots yesterday and I’m very happy with them. I will submit the additional postage cost to you via paypal tomorrow. However I am not happy about this. If you made a mistake on your postage estimate then that is your fault and you should cover it rather than pass it on to the buyer. I tend to only bid on items on Ebay that I can cover with my paypal balance. If you had put the actual european postage cost on your action I may not have bid. I’ve taken the hit for my own mistakes here in the past and I expect others should do the same. Royal Mail have a very useful page on their website for getting the correct postage cost so there is little reason for incorrect estimates.

Thank you,
eBay

Dont know what you mean? i put the boots on, you bought them thats the end of it as far as i am concerned. If I underestimated the postage costs to Finland then that is my fault and I am willing to stand it. I wont make the same mistake again. What as made me upset is that you seem to be hell bent on giving me a lecture despite the fact that you have got a bargain. Why? I lost out, you gained, so why would you try to rub it in by telling me off as well. If you wanted to send the additional postage you would have just done it by now. Youve had a result just enjoy it!

Eh? You requested I cover the additional postage. I was happy enough to do this, I was just pointing out that I shouldn’t be expected to. You then decided to develope selective amnesia about asking me to do this. Which is why I didn’t. If you didn’t want the extra postage then why did you ask?

Gah… what’s the point. You are obviously another idiot. You people exist to get on my tits.

I didn’t send that. I decided to take a breath and back off. What’s done is done and I got some decent boots. No use getting stressed into the bargain.

But I keep meeting these people. I know it’s my problem that i let them bother me as much as they do. I’m just tired of simple situations turning into a fucking trial just because someone decides to be stupid and then defend it.

Is it just me that finds this sort of thing over and over again incredibly tiring?
