    How you can tell if a seller has a lady waiting at home...

    I came across an item I wanted on another forum, having just missed out on a similar one on Ebay. New it'd be about $100, and the gentleman wanted $60 used, the same as it went for on Ebay. Conveniently enough, I had $61 dollars in my PayPal account, completely free from the prying eyes of my better half!

    I told him I'd take it for $60, and he came back with $60 + $5 shipping. Being that I had only the $61 in untraceable fundage, I busted out the honesty card and told the man straight up; letting a paintball purchase hit the checking account or credit card this week would be the equivalent of domestic seppuku but I'd gladly come up to $61 total being that it's my PayPal accounts bottom dollar. After all, what's $4 between players?

    Well I think I might have rocked his world - $65 is firm, and it's a good price, after all it's only $4. If only it were that simple. I miss those innocent days.

    LOL naw it was just a gear bag I've had my eye on but only at the right price.

    I'm not ticked or anything; I'm just jealous of how innocent the guy is! I already hit my paintball budget for this week and it's only Sunday night. The bank thought it was a little funky to spend so what I did out of state and gave the little lady a call... Now I'm on probation!

    I appreciate the offer though.

    i do the SAME thing. wife came back once and said "what the hell did you spend 261.50$ on?!"

    "what do you mean? where did you get that ammount?" as only 125$ of it came out of checking, the rest in paypal...

    "it's on our statement!"

    "prove it... or were you snooping through my paypal"

    dead silence...

    She would likely see the package when it came anyway.

    My girlfriend gets on me because she sees me post pics to Facebook. Then she asks why I have spent $400 in the last week. I've decided to ignore the texts after my status updates. She didn't like that. She started coming over asking so what is for sale again.

    Haha, been here too! I've got a lot of stuff that is "for sale". Just.. some of it isn't exactly listed.

    Every once in awhile I have to explain that I only actually own 2 1/2 paintball guns, and how they're different (ETac, TPX, pump project). Then explain how this gun actually belongs to someone else. And that gun is my son's - he's 3 years old. Etc, etc.

    Problem is, I have had numerous people pull the "all I have is" thing and it doesn't sway me. My usual response is: "give me a shout back when you have it". 9/10 the buyer suddenly has he money. It's a tired line guys, find another one.
