…and I throw like a girl.
I recently bought a moderately expensive item on ebay, and when it hadn?t shown up a week later I fired off an email to make sure that it had shipped. I received the following:
Due to a severe concussion received on saturday the 20th of march, my brother is behind on his shipments and your merchandise will not be sent until monday the 29th, we’re sorry for the delay, but he’s just beginning to come back to normal (as it were) and I’m now in the process of sending everything else out. Thank you for your patience in this matter. Faith Resnik
As I?m the horrible, skeptical person my parents raised, my scam-sensor went off the charts. Part of me wanted to report this guy immediately and get my money back, but the part of me that believes he there?s a chance that he might actually have an owie on his head won out. I sent back the following:
Having had two serious concussions myself in my lifetime, I can honestly say I sympathize with your problems and wish him a speedy recovery.
Please let me know when my package ships.
Thanks and God Bless,
It?s a good thing that he doesn?t know me or he?d realize how funny that was and I?d be in trouble?
