Some guy said iw as basically detroying the whole ebay economy by only buying the absolute cheapest crap i can find.
I wrote baout it in blog there then later felt embarased.. so im taking it off there and putting it on here XD>
In my last eBay blog entry someone said something that I don't quite understand.
What I understood it being was that because I only buy the ABSOLUTE cheapest ungodly amazing deals on eBay that I am in a nutshell 'destroying the "ebayion" economy'
something about.. people that only buy amazing deals 'take away' from the good honest sellers or whatever.
Those comments almost made me think that they were thinking I was being cocky or demanding things from my 'wish list' post.
When in reality, It's just a list of things that would be.. interesting to own..
I am in no way expecting to actually even own all of them at any point in my life o-O
My family is relatively.... Not wealthy. Sure we can still afford ~200$ on christmas presents but that doesnt really mean anything..
My dad works at a factory. He is a single parent. The house my mom bought has an over 1,000$ a month mortgage..
however, my dad is an incredibly penny pincher.. He will freak out and buy something else if it's 20 cents less.. you know as long as quality is decent..
"There's some things you can go cheap on, but others you just can't"
Car insurance.. Gas ranging from 3-3.80 a gallon.. Buying the essentials every week.. my and my moms hospital bills...
I really don't expect ANYthing from my dad but the essentials..
I know there are a lot of people that are worse off than us, but that is OFTEN due to poor money management skills.
We have no debt at all besides the mortgage on our house. Perfect credit.
There was this one lady who was in fashion bug. Her daughter was about 4-5 years old.. She got to the counter and couldnt pay because her credit card was maxed out. She tried calling SOMEONE on her cell phone but her battery was dead. She takes her little girl's (4-5 years old) cell phone and the little girl was screaming because it was HER cell phone and she didnt want her mom to touch it.. We got outside and she had a brand new shiny PT Cruiser.
This is an example of horrid money management skills. THESE people right here are the kind that say "oh im soo poor~" but they really arent.. their money managemetn skills SUCK. They could live a decent life.. if they would just LEARN. Sure they wouldnt have brand new cars and 6 cell phones but they could be DEBT FREE... for a lot of people.. being debt free is a lot more important than new cars and whatnot that they cant afford.
My dad drives a 1986 Astrovan with the frame rotting out.... When this one dies we will prolly get like another van.. 1995.. for ~2,000$ IF it's a good deal. We arent going to go out and buy some brand new 2012 H6 Hummer or nothing because we cant afford it. It would be a bit retarded to go and buy something like that soley on credit cards..
Unfortunately most people do.
I buy most of my things on eBay because they are CHEAP.. usually better quality.. and you can get IT, whatever IT is.. when you go to walmart and i have a choice between a dog or a rainbow latchhook set.. When on ebay i could get a super cool tiger one!!! (for the same price or cheaper!)
SO I think I'm about done with ranting about money.
When I live on my own, I will probably shop at goodwill and eat nothing but 10cent ramen and ride my bike everywhere......... because I'm cheap. Nothing anyone can say or do will change that. (Unless i came across an incredibley large sum of money... Then I might splurge and buy an electric powered bike :X hahahah)
Pretty much in short, I hate money. I hate dealing with it. It's hard to get and never seems to stick around. But I'll do my best! :)
(and by the way flamers, any and all comments that i deem... insulting or whatever will be reported and deleted.. So just dont waste your and my time. ^^)
