Chapter 20

* * * * * * * * * *

I have a LOT of ebay transactions, and here's something that I've noticed:
Often when I buy something from a kid, it's broken. Or packed so badly that it breaks in transit. Or both.

You want to have your antennae up when buying things on ebay. For instance, descriptions written in textese or words like "awesome" are pretty much indications that there's a kid on the other end and he's got a broken thing that he decided that he'll sell to someone.

I am not making this up.
