Waaayyyyy too good not to share

August 19, 2007

If you’ve ever had any dealings on ebay, this will be funny for you.

And while the column in and of itself is funny, I loved the author’s byline so much that I’m sharing it here in its entirety. I think this guy and I are kindred spirits.

Bob Rybarczyk (brybarczyk@sbcglobal.net) writes stuff. He was hell bent for leather once, but only briefly.

  1. I LOVE THE STORY!!! CAN’T WAIT FOR CHAPTER 2! WE’VE RUN INTO A FEW CRAZIES ON EBAY–ONE THAT EVEN PRAYED FOR DENNIS AND HIS UNCARING SOUL–YES, SHE RIPPED HIM OFF. Ooops! Sorry about the caps. . .


  2. ROTFL! That really was funny! Wish I knew the upper case woman in real life!


  3. WOW!! WHAT A NUTCASE! ALTHOUGH I HAVE TO ASK MYSELF: WHO IS MORE INSANE – CRAZY CAPS-LOCK EBAY LADY, or the kind of people who collect giant Marilyn Monroe dolls?


  4. Franny ~ I laughed so hard at this, and also because both you and CS, in your own marvelous senses of humor decided to comment in all caps. FABULOUS! Ebay has not always been good to us either, but I don’t have a story as good as that, nor could I tell it with such style.

    Iz ~ I applaud you for your desire to meet this woman. I am too big a chicken. People like that scare me. I run. xoxoxox

    CS ~ Have I told you lately how I so love your perspective? The last few months I’ve been dropping the phrase “People are crazy — I should know — I am one.” šŸ˜‰


  5. I think a comedian could write an entire routine just on ebay alone. From the toast with Mother Teresa to the guy that sold his identity to the highest bidder there are many, many weird tales to be had. Good find!


  6. VE ~ Thanks so much for stopping by! Isn’t that the truth?! I’ve had more laughs over ebay transactions than any woman should. I think my favorite is still the guy who modeled his ex’s wedding dress and achieved national attention for his witty (understatement) description. Cheers!
