If you come from where I come from, which isn't that far from flying over the kuckoos nest, you would know that life is one big lemon tree. Lucky for me, I like lemonade.
Yesterday, on ebay, or was it the day before? I listed a leather jacket that for some reason I bought with the intentions of wearing. You would have to see this thing. So I listed it on ebay and I got a message from what seems to be a young lady asking me if she can pay with cash after she sells a few things at a yard sale. We sent a couple messages back and forth. I surprise myself sometimes and will come out with something slightly profound. Here's the entire conversation back and forth:
Rox: Hi, I don't like to use my paypal, would you accept cash carefully packaged? Also ship parcel post to 47324? Thank you
me: Sure. I'll take cash. I'm new to this and I'm not familiar with parcel post 47324. Can you tell me? Thanks.
Rox: Well that's my zip code for here and I think it goes by weight, There's a direction chart the post office has to explain how it works, they'll help you too if you tell them what you're doin', I love your lil' jacket and I know it would fit me perfect. I have so many coats but not like this one, and I've been looking a while on ebay for one I really like. I'm putting the cart before the horse tho cause I'm having a yard sale this coming week, what I make from it I was gonna hopefully get your coat and a couple other things someone else will get the bid tho, that's what always happens when I really, really want something. Thank you for emailing me back I have your coat on my watch list. A real nice lagy is holding a pair of boots for me till I get the loot at my sale! She's pretty awsome huh? If I can help you at all just email me, I'll sure try. Best of luck with your store!!!!!!!! Roxanne
me: I'll stop the auction. The jacket'll be waiting for you, Roxanne. ;)
Rox: Oh, that's the sweetest thing I ever had someone want to do for me! That's not fare tho, you paid listing fee and all, you did this to make money not loose it. I want it bad but not at your expense. If you really want to do that, find out what your listing for it was and I'll pay that when I buy it. How would that be?Let me know okay? Thank you so much Roxanne
me: The listing fee was 50 cents. I'm not worried about the money. There's not much we can control in life, but if we can have the jackets we want, life feels a little sweeter. You took the time and effort, you really want the jacket. I feel like you deserve it.
Rox: You are an absolute Doll!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as soon as I have the loot in my hands so will you ASAP Thanks A Million Roxanne
Really made me feel good to make someone else happy that I don't even know. She also appretiated a simple act of kindness.
