Re: [z_scale] Re: re:eBay
- Dumb: I've bid twice the FMV of a car -- and won --
because I mis-read the itty-bitty road number on my
existing cars. I thought I was getting an old car no
longer in production, but when it arrived, I finally
saw that it had the same number as the other cars
already in hand for which I paid 1/2 the price. I
look much more carefully at road numbers now.
Dumber: I've also won and paid too much for an MTL car
with Marklin couplers where the car description said
MTL's Marklin couplers, but I only noticed "MTL
couplers". I look at photos and descriptions much
more carefully now.
Dumbest: I'm trying to avoid this title.
