Selling My Soul

The infamous watch in question.  It's a
Fossil if you were wondering.
     So, I took the plunge today, Company, and I sold something on the eBay.  That's right.  I have never sold anything there before.  I have shopped there, and bought a fair amount of stuff from there, and I have had an account for a long time, but I have never had the guts to sell anything before.  Not that selling something on eBay requires anyone to be especially brave, but still.  I have just never had that experience before and I was a little leery about getting into it.  I don't know if it is because of the hassle of having to ship the thing and so on and so forth, or if it was that I was afraid that I was going to go about it all wrong and look like an f-ing retard, or maybe the potential heartbreak when no one buys your stuff or you don't get a good price for it and then you think that your things aren't good enough for everyone else, but I had just never brought myself to do it.  But my Baby Doll had a watch she wanted sold, and I had the eBay account, so off it went.
     Now, I am not so stupid as to jump into something blindly that I have never done before when I have someone who has experienced it before sitting right across the room from me.  So I had the Ice Queen help me out, and after scaring the living piss out of me because she saw what I was doing and flipped because I was on the "wrong screen" (not so much wrong, just not what she was accustomed to seeing) she really did do a wonderful job of guiding me along and making sure I didn't look like the aforementioned f-ing retard.  And she gave me some very good pointers for making my item sell better, things that are common sense once you think about them for a little bit or if you have owned a used car lot for a lot of years, but that don't really come naturally to everyone when you are selling on eBay for the first time.
      And that is that.  With a little help we are up and rolling.  It was nice for me to see, too, that I had 100% positive feedback.  I am not sure where that feedback even came from, but I am appreciative for it, because in the end it is all that you have to trade on in the online world.  We will have to keep you apprised just in case you happen to care, and if you are interested in buying a watch drop a line to bigdave@bigdaveandcompany.com and I will send you the link to bid on the auction.  Now wouldn't that be exiting?
