Here’s part of a conversation I thought was funny

David Vincent Gagne says:
you know what’s obnoxious?
ebay is awful
they email me when I have LOST an auction

David Vincent Gagne says:
why the #$@* would I want an email like that?

a.friend says:
i don’t even have the energy to talk abt why I hate ebay
they send you might want to bid on…

David Vincent Gagne says:
why the hell don’t they email me ten minutes BEFORE it’s over if I’m not in the lead?
THAT would be useful

a.friend says:
they should do that
next time I see you I will tell you what happened with us
we were managing an ebay store for a client
we had 54k in products online

David Vincent Gagne says:
or at the very least they should have an “Add to Outlook” link on every item so you can store a reminder in your calendar

a.friend says:
they shut off the store

David Vincent Gagne says:
what were they selling?

a.friend says:
dental supplies
everything was kosher
i will tell you in person

David Vincent Gagne says:
jewish dental supplies?

a.friend says:
i mean, it wasn’t black market

David Vincent Gagne says:
there’s your problem, dude

a.friend says:
we had invoices

David Vincent Gagne says:
NOBODY but NOBODY lets you deal in jewish dental supplies

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
