I think I'm getting addicted to eBay...
Last week, I bought some accessories for my current cellphone. 2 days later, I turn around and buy a totally different cellphone, rendering the newly-purchased accessories useless.
Tonight, I decided to check out some of the "Mystery Auctions" that are now starting to be all over eBay. I found one that said "Bonus Bonus Jackpot." It looked intriguing, and it was only at $3. I bid $3.25.
The immediate response from eBay was "You have been outbid by another user." I figured this, and upped my bid to $5.
"You have been outbid by another user."
I have never done one of these, so I decided $10 for an envelope (mind you, eBay does not allow you to sell these items as a raffle, bingo, lottery, etc... you can only sell them as the actual item, which was an envelope) was pretty steep, but what the heck - it said it had "currency" in it. So I put my max bid at $10 and confirmed it. I was now the high bidder.
As the auction closed, I watched it go up ever so slightly. It finished at $7.01, and I was happy. But now I have to pay for it, and I have no idea of how I'm going to do that. I have to pay for my other auctions I won too, and my Taco Bell check coming on Monday is spent already. I have no other $$ until Friday.
I really hate not having money. It really slows things down. Let's hope the "currency" in this mystery envelope is actual spendable cash, and a lot of it at that.
