6286  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Question about ebay etiquette and protocol on: February 28, 2011, 11:33:02 PM
So I bought a genesis off a guy for $15 +$15 in shipping. Description claimed it works and let me copy and paste some text for you from the thing:
Quote
Condition:   
Used: An item that has been used previously. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. This item may be a floor model or store return that has been used. See the sellerís listing for full details and description of any imperfections

I only accept PayPal.
Payment is expected within 48 hours after auction has ended.
All Items are sold AS IS.
I DO NOT accept returns.

First off: I tried cleaning it out pretty thoroughly and no improvement. Tried two games and both did not work. Basically the problem is the visuals look like an NES did when it'd start freaking out. All blocked up

I cleaned the carts off w/ alcohol using qtips.

Cleaned the console pins off w/ alcohol and a small gentle brush (supposed to be for cleaning bridgework)


So I contacted the guy and he said he'd apply a full refund but I'd have to pay for return shipping. I personally think that's BS because the product is not what was advertised.

So what would you guys do? I'm not an experienced EBAYER by any stretch.

Should I try more cleaning options?
Should I send it back and pay for return shipping?
Should I demand he pays for the return shipping?

The worst RPG is whatever Eusis' favorite RPG is.

Or the next big release that isn't quite what people expected

First 3DS shipment (400k) sold out in a matter of minutes.

So much for expense.
I'm surprised no one here is bragging about it - did anyone get it?
I personally didn't find the launch titles appealing, so...

Anyways.
My mum, who's on a leave of absence from work, had done a vacation to the Dominican only a few months back, and had the [metaphoric] balls to say to me that she needs another one.  Makes me wonder what the hell do I deserve?  I think the last vacation I had was when I was fucking 12 years old.  Oh, and I did have that one day at the local, Lake Ontario beach...but that was for one day, and (I posted it here a while ago) when a large-ass fish was beached, missing an eye and it had a hunk of wood lodged into it's mouth.  Needless to say, I was a bit annoyed (she's the family "princess" as is).

On a better note, I finally got the Christmas gift I asked for from my brother.  2 months late, but his finances were tight.  And I'll forgive the fact that
a) The EBgames/Gamestop gift card I wanted is...LITERALLY a 5 minute walk from his house
b) He bought his girlfriend 10 gifts, and a $75 "treasure box" to put them in (fine fine, they have a different kind of relationship)
c) 2 month wait, but at least he had the money to plan a vacation to Mexico that he's leaving for tomorrow

It may sound petty; but c'mon, I always believed blood was thicker than water here.

Sorry, I'm a bit bitter.  Lots of shit due in school, and my lab partner is a bit mentally insane I think.  That, and a lot of other problems are driving me up the wall; I just hate when my family has their head up their asses sometimes (home is supposed to be your sanctuary!).


How old is your bro? Buying that many gifts for a +1 is ridiculous.

Last time I went whole hog for a girl on xmas I got her tons of nice stuff. She got me a fucking shirt and cup w/ my name on it from Disneyland, same fucking thing she got my parents.

We're done shortly after.

I've been seeing "Secret of Mana 2" carts on ebay going for some big bux.


Anyone know anything about that?
6293  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: listmania on: February 28, 2011, 12:06:58 AM
Children's Hospital is incredible.

It's been a while since I've seen it so I didn't remember if it was section 8 or the railroads gave them something to just get them out of the tunnels
6297  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: February 26, 2011, 05:36:21 PM
Dark Days is incredible.

But the end of the movie leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth. They basically get free apartments.

Thanks. Now I'll never be able to forget sweating bananas

Type O Negative: Cinnamon Girl

That reminds me of a night when I took a walk and saw two people screwing in a car.

I never in my life heard of a party like that. Sounds interesting.
