I swapped GAA programmes on it with a man, I could have easily took the programmes and sent him nothing back but I am a man of morals and a man of Christ

In fairness, the sellers can take the piss too.

'1985 VCR, lid won't shut, play button missing, eats tapes, E50'

'I can get one new in box for E51 online'

'Yeah, that's why there's a discount'

Or yer one who turns up an hour late at 21.30 to buy a like new chrome towel rad. Loves it, the best rad she has ever seen, exactly what she wanted and at such a good price, what a lovely home you have. Then you offer to put it in her car she says no, and drags it down the driveway.

A week later she's texting saying she wants a refund because she has bought a cheaper one somewhere else. When you explain you're not a shop and she scratched the fook out of it, she threatens coming back with big brothers and then the Gardaí.

Last time I used Adverts.

That can work the other way too though. I've seen people quote the lowest prices from ebay auctions as counter offers on Adverts despite the fact that Adverts.ie is more of a Buy It Now price. Sometimes ebay auctions attract little interest & the item sells for an extremely low price. A few weeks later the same item could have bidders crawling over one another to buy it.

I've sold a good few items over the last couple of years on adverts. Just random items here and there. Alot of people are indeed sound but there are also alot who aren't.

But you meet some spacers off there. I mean proper few screws loose type of people. I was selling some V for Vendetta masks a couple of years ago and met this guy up. Starts going on about how "we have to protest, man" then goes on for a 10 minute spiel. Was not just what he said but the mannerisms out of him. You'd swear there was going to be a riot on and he wanted first row seats.
But of course me being too polite or a thick (take your pick) I didn't say "Do you want the masks or not?" - in the end he didn't buy them. Wouldnt you know.

I've a feeling selling V for Vendetta masks was your first mistake...

you are probably right. See I got given some by a friend a few weeks before Halloween (I wonder now why he gave me them lol. I had about 20) But to be fair most people who bought them were just normal, decent people. Sound like.

But then I had a couple of them left over and would you know the water protests were kicking up a few months later. But this guy was something else. You're probably thinking "I bet he was some early 20s bloke in college" - But no, a guy in early 40s.
